Soon to find new homes.

 
I had an incredibly wonderful adventure this week and found a good lot of vintage pillow cases. I also found a piece of black wool that I'm sure someone would love to felt.
 
 
 
The next two wonderful finds were a score. First there is a long and wide piece of new denim. I measured at least 3 yards. Who doesn't love denim. The stripe fabric is a heavy home decor fabric the same weight as the denim. Again this piece is at least three yards.
 
 
 
I also found two pieces of colonial print fabric, a fun piece of juvenile print fabric and two lovely hand made doilies that I may use as apron pockets just to add a splash of the past to a new item.
 
 
 
My favorite find was this vintage twin size race car bed cover. I just love the print and the colors. I can envision this as the focus point of a young boys bedroom decor.
Most of these items will eventually become inventory on my on line shops. Please feel free to visit:

I hope everyone has a wonderful week and please check in for next weeks exciting thrift finds. New finds and more bright colors to come.

Vintage linens will never be left behind by me. I always have to bring them home and give them a new life. Really sweet, special finds.
