Vintage Sheets

I've been collecting these pretty sheets for a few years now, with the intention of cutting them up for craft, however I just can't bring myself to do it. Since having the girls, I just love to brighten up there beds by mixing up the sheets with vintage pillow slips. The ones that have seen better days do get recycled, but for now I throw them on their beds and fold under the edges.


My latest find.

On the bed, a vintage flannelet

Oh Alison these are GORGEOUS & I can SO RELATE....I tend to buy these as well because they were manufactured in Australia & made of cotton....They feel not unlike hospital & hotel sheets (nice, crisp & heavy) & are just DELICIOUS to sleep under....!!!

LOVE your collection....!!

Cheers,
Tamarah :o)

Oh, love those sheets. I've been searching high and low for sheets like those to no avail. I have got a few candy stripe ones though but the floral ones are the biz (I wouldn't cut them up either).
