Adventures in Vintage Linens

My latest vintage obsesh are vintage sheets and linens. I love the bold prints and patterns but I also love the *feel*. Most are a blend of cotton and polyester and provide a cool fabric for sleeping. Personally, I hate to be warm or hot when sleeping. I like the windows open, the cool side of the pillow and loathe flannel.

Since I’ve been collecting pretty sheets for awhile now, I’ve finally gotten to the point where I can do a little mix and match. Those in the vintage sheet community are calling them bedscapes or #sheetchangeinserthadayoftheweekhere.

My current favorite in my shop is this awesome floral twin fitted sheet. It’s like springtime at bedtime!

Sometimes I come across damaged sheets and those are usually referred to as “cutters”. I’ve started doing some cute magnet crafts with those cutters. I love using them in my office and on my fridge at home. They also make such great little gifts.

Best Vintage Gifts for Mother’s Day

I believe in trying to find the *perfect* gifts for the ones I love. I get a sense of satisfaction and excitement when I find something that just instantly screams a persons name to me.

I love vintage. I live vintage! I know that doesn’t mean everyone does, so don’t think I go around buying “old” things for every gift I give. That would make me probably a little bit of a weirdo. But since I love vintage, I totally enjoy receiving thoughtful, vintage gifts. And maybe someone in your life does, too. Like maybe your Mom!

So I’ve put together a little list of awesome cool vintage gifts for mom this year.  You’re welcome. ;)
