So last week I had to drop-off a no-longer-needed changing table (hallelujah!) at the thrift store. It had been a crazy week wrapping up things with our old house and this was my last task. So as a reward I allowed myself to go inside. No pyrex this time, but I scored with the vintage linens! I had to dig through a lot of junk, but found some great treasures. I love this pillowcase. I think the colors and the print are so pretty – I’ve been starting to collect prints I like to frame in hoops (like this) and I think this is going to be one of them.
(I’ll get there sometime!)
I tore the bag slightly open and found this vintage cotton. Fantastic! It’s so American Jane-y, old fashioned looking. (Yes, I should have ironed it before taking a picture.) Reminds me a little of my childhood in the late 70’s. (Or maybe it’s some recent piece of JoAnn stuff. If it is I don’t want to know. I’d rather live in denial, believing I found some awesome vintage treasure.)
And finally, this little old piece of cheater print. I think it’s so fun. Reminds me of this old quilt my mom made about the same time my grandma was wearing the yellow-flowered polyester dress. It also makes me think of some cool new Japanese reprint.
Now I’m off to find some time to do something with them!
