Vintage Linens for a Perfect Picnic

A quick post to say hi.  
And to share the fact that I keep staring at all these pretty linens that simply make me smile. I found this lovely little thrift shop and picked up several floral patterned sheets that cost a maximum of $4.  I tried my best to find flat sheets because my thought was to use these pretty sheets as picnic blankets

That way I can have them at the ready as guests arrive and more then one family can share a blanket as they eat and chat.  I love the different ones I found and I am excited to see how they will look in my front yard. :)
I am also pretty excited to find these beautiful vintage pillowcases...some for .50 a piece or a $1 a pair.
They will be perfect for the Sack Races I have planned.  Fun, right?

Here are the girls trying out the pillowcases for sack races. :) 
They loved it!

I know this was a quick one but I will be back some time this week for more party fun!


  1. CUTE CUTE CUTE...Adorable pictures and Lovely Pillow Cases...Got your note and looking forward to hearing from you...Enjoy the rest of your SONday...

  2. Okay SOUL SISTER!!! I was just looking for pillowcases yesterday at a thrift store for this same reason! MAN I LOVE YOU :) Too funny...Just hope the kids have as much fun as your girls!

    I didn't buy any because they were like 4 bucks a pair! I have another store i am going to hit up this week :)

    Your linens are way cool...I think I want to be you :) Or at least live RIGHT next door :)

  3. Oh how I love pretty things. Beauty soothes the spirit ... at least mine!! Hmmm ... I think I just may have to pop into our local thrift store today! Just what I need! Would love to find some pretty linens even if I only use them to make a shelf look pretty! C= Love your site!!
