vintage tuesday

happy tuesday folks!  
summer has me thinking about my summers as a little girl.  my sister and i would always spend a couple weeks at my nana and pop pop's house.  we would run around the flower garden and catch butterflies.  pick veggies out of the garden for our dinner salad each night.  watch game shows with pop pop.  sit with nana while she did her crossword.  we always had a special night out of bowling or a movie and dinner out at pizza hut.  it was so fun...the best memories and such a simple time.  one thing that really sticks out in my little ol' brain is sleeping on the softest sheets.  they had been washed a million times and they were so comfy and cozy.  specifically i recall their bright orange daisy pattern sheets.  i wish i had them today!  

vintage sheets are the best.  use them as fabric for all your sewing projects, use them on your beds, take them to the park and the beach to lay on, use them for forts and kids' projects...etc...etc!

here are some sweet picks from etsy...enjoy!







and who else had the holly hobbie sheets in the 70's?  loved those:)   have a great day you guys...hope it's a cozy one!  xox...jenn
