Recently over the last 8 months I have discoverd how much I love vintage linens- the colors and design remind me of my childhood, in a good way I guess. This discovery started with revisiting the pictures and stories from my childhood while creating layouts for my latest eBook. Something about spending time in that space in my head directed me to seek out these visuals-- and the colors and patterns have completely inspired me.
First it was Dottie Angel

I had already owned a few pillowcases I picked up at thrift stores- but have been adding to my stash via ebay and etsy shops.
Always a fan of vintage books I started looking for books published during my school years. I am not alone in these discoveries, it seems that the whole world is recognizing the beauty in the past and finding ways to incorporate it into today.
I am guest blogging at Write, Click, Scrapbook next week and my projects feature my favorite linens and images. For now- a few favorite linens are shown below
