Vintage Dreams

After having lots of guests to stay last week I've realised just how little spare bedlinen we own.

I've been trying to find some on the highstreet that I like but I've gradually realised that what my heart really wants is lots of vintage-style florals like this (the current star of my linen cupboard)...


.... and the current fashion for bedlinen just can't match up to those dreams (or those prices - the pink florals cost a mere £4 from a Bristol charity shop).

I've not found any bedlinen I like yet but while looking for some online I found this gorgeous stash of floral fabric:


It's a pair of curtains and some assorted cushion covers. With all my daydreams about a house full of vintage floral loveliness I just couldn't resist it. The boyfriend think's I've gone mad but honestly isn't it just lovely?

Gorgeous fabric!

I love vintage fabric and charity shop curtains are a current favourite - they're great for making clothes.

they are so lovely - I have started my own vintage floral sheet collection, but none as lovely as yours yet!

Ooooo - those are very pretty. There were a couple sets of fun floral vintage sheets at my local thrift. I saw them there a couple times and passed them up b/c "I just don't Need them". And now they're gone. *sigh* I think I miss them.

Nope - you're not crazy - they are very much fun!

That's one gorgeous sheet. I have a passion for collecting vintage bed linen. A passion I'm not sure my hubby enjoys!

I used to have these curtains in my bedroom when I was a teenager in the early 70s. I had a purple and white tie-dyed bedspread with it. I wanted my walls dark purple, but well... parents and all that! LOL Thanks for bringing back a happy memory.
