I cant help myself !

I just had to blog again today because I'm soooo excited about this parcel I got in the mail from whimsie dots. I was amazed at first when I saw Mandys etsy store and blog, I had no idea there were so many patterns in vintage sheets available.

If you love this sort of thing, no doubt you'll already be over there having a look around !

We dont seem to get this variety here in Australia.

What do people do with their no longer required vintage sheets ?

The op shops only have one or two decent ones on random occaissions, at least hardly ever when I'm visiting!

Now to work out what to do with these lovelies....ponder..

I think I will simply drool over them for a while, caress them even, like I do when I get a heap of vintage buttons, or special vintage chenille bedspreads.

Maybe they'll just look great in my stash for a while and I'll just know what to do with them when the perfect project presents itself !
Glad I have joined in the Australian vintage sheet fat quarter swap over here, there maybe even more different ones to add to my new collection. There's still time if you want to join in too.

Hey Miriam! Must have been fun mail day today, cos I received a nice package too ... though not as big as yours! :0) You won't want to hear this, but the only vintage sheets I remember seeing were being used for painting drop cloths or packing padding - it just goes to show that beauty is in the eye of the beholder and just about anything can be given a second special chance ... if only we see the potential! :0) Bear Hugs!

Oh wow drooling over those! It's not very often that you find vintage sheets anymore at the oppy.

Oooh Yummy, they look delicious! I would put them on display so you can admire them every time you walk past!

Really really special package you got there! Thinking I may have to get some hands on some of those in the future at Whimsie Dots! Unless I won some from the Giveaway Day!! Love all your chenille!!
