Vintage stash and goodies

I haven't done Sunday Stash (see sidebar) for quite awhile, so being Sunday and a very wintery 14 degrees and blowy, I did a little cutting:

Some little vintage goodies for the Vintage Sheet Swap - I had to actually cull some I got so carried away - I think I shall send 36 little packages (in one big bag!) folded as requested like so.....




here are some of my favourites.......






do you see the delightful old gold velour couch they are resting on - that story is for another post I promise!!



I think also I can request some particulars.....so 'no brown' for me please Cg! There is something about brown quilts that I cannot figure - I just can't bear them! Sorry any lovers of brown!



My other lovely goodies are from Lulabell that came with my oh so wonderful doll quilt.

I love this cloud fabric - perfect for dreaming!


That girl is one clever cookie!



Sorry for my continual skiting!! It is all totally intentional...lol!

Ooo! I hope I get some of your bits. I stil have to iron and cut my sheets before I can think about folding them. And no, I don't want brown either. Maybe it was a boys colour back in the good ol' days but I can smell yucky bachelor sheets when I think about them. Cherrie

Oh I do hope that I get some of these beauties in the swap!

And hey, I like brown! Maybe not so much in vintage sheets, but generally I LOVE brown.

I just had a look at Vintage sheets link after seeing your lovely sheets. I would love to join a swap one-day, It looks like so much fun. No time at the moment though :( (I'm having my craft room renovated)

Oh! They look lovely! I shall take your preference for no brown VERY seriously, I promise. What was it with brown back in the 60s and 70s? At least brown these days is more chocolate and less, well, poo.
