First though I would like to share with you a fantastic find that my sister scored.
Here are my vintage sheet scores, which I've acquired over the last two weeks (Don't forget you can buy fat quarters from my Etsy shop).

Granted it's not full purple (I know it's more towards lavender), but it has great colors and more purple then in all my other sheets combined (seriously, there might be a smidgen of purple in one sheet in my whole collection of 60+ sheets). I was sooo happy to find this sheet, such vintage loveliness.
I love this red and white sheet.
And this flower vine....it's great. I have another one like this, but it was so
This isn't vintage, but I figured this would be a good addition to my collection. Plus it would make a cute apron, very farm-ish. Now, what is the ideal name for this pattern? Gingham or checkered?
A great pair of stripped pillow cases.
A duplicate addition to my stash. I couldn't just leave it at the thrift store.
And a great Spring sheet.
So now, my question to you is... how many of you have done curb side pick-up when a item has be kicked to it like my sister's find? Anything unusual, and how hard was it to get it into you car? My mom did this once when she saw a table at the curb, across the street from her. It was sturdy and a great looking table, it just needed a little TLC. So what did she do? Dragged it across the street, by herself, and into her garage. I just picture her like an ant dragging a large item to a new location. She restored the table, stripped, sanded, and restained it. My other sister ended up using it for a bit, and now my ex-husband has it. Wow! What an ongoing life for that table when it was destined for the landfill.
