Current obsession . . . mod vintage pillowcases

My newest mission is to find brightly colored vintage pillowcases. In the past I would have been more drawn to white, lacy, embroidered linens, but now I'm finding sheet sets from the 60's and 70's to be really happy additions to my linen closet! Found these two last weekend at a buck a piece. Harleigh saw them and said, "oooo, I want those on my bed. How fun!!"

They mix and match really well too, unified by their bursts of color!

I occasionally find place mats that would look great made into these kinds of pillows. I haven't made any yet, but someday...

What a neat collection! I'll be on the lookout over this way and let you know if I find any!

Fun! I have found myself looking through some of those myself. The very ones my Mom has probably tossed out. Jackie

Dawn, Thank you so much for posting at creative breathing. Buns, yes it is still here! It burned down about 7 years ago and has been rebuilt. My husband celebrated my 50th birthday there with a surprise party! (It's where I got my second new blue ring!) New courthouses, the Brown Jug is now a Hoggy's, Cubberly's is STILL there taking all of the HS grad pics, my son included! He also went to OWU, hasn't changed. Please enter me to win a journal, they are beautiful My hasband has traveled to every single country in the world. What a great idea to use maps as the cover. OOOOOHHHH, Pilsner's is now an antique mall as well as the old lady's clothing store, and the old grocery store; so come hunting! Elizabeth

Hi there Dawn, I have been meaning to write to you for quite awhile. There is a little something that I have that always makes me think of you. So, I have decided that you should have it. :) May I send you a little something in the mail? No biggy, just a little something that I think you will enjoy and I want you to have. :) Hugs, Cece
