vintage everything


Please take note of those sheets.

That pillowcase.

That other pillowcase.

That third pillowcase.

I need to up my vintage-sheet-hunting game. That's exactly what I want to do on my bed. All I would change is to make a duvet cover with another vintage sheet to go on top instead of the quilt.

I've been looking for a duvet cover for too, too long. Can't find anything I love. I did find one vintage sheet that was perfect, but it was fitted and wasn't quite big enough. (you can see the material in this skirt, which I wish to the heavens I had been able to get...) My dream is that I will find another one hidden on a shelf in a thrift store or at a yard sale. If you ever see this sheet somewhere, scoop it up for me, 'kay?

Vintage is my favorite right now. Vintage everything. Furniture. Clothes. Bedding. Accessories. Home decor. I think my life-long love of antique stores is here to stay. I don't want to buy new things, only old things that are quirky and fun.

Finally, if you would...before you click away....glance at that old door that works as the headboard. oh. my. dear....

Wish we could go vintage shopping together, friend. I think it would be super fun.

ps...your big day is almost here! Praying for you...

I just saw a door used as a headboard in This Old House magazine and thought, "I want one of those!" -Mom
