Vintage Sheets!

I'm a guest-blogger over at The Vintage Sheets Blog today.

While I was digging through my sewing room to find the sheets for the picture, I came to a conclusion. I've got a lot of sheets. I never did find the blue ones or the green ones. And, while I'm not in any hurry to use them all up, I should get them more organized.

While I was going over the white sheet, looking for a tag I thought I'd seen earlier, I was startled by this:



Now I'm trying to decide if it was embroidered by my Aunt Molly, or by a total stranger who just happened to share her name and habit of labeling every bit of linen. And if it did come from my Molly, if I'm obligated to keep the sheet intact.

And, because I love any excuse for a giveaway, I'm sharing some of my sheet collection:



It's a matched set of twin sheets, one flat and one fitted (no pillowcases.) They're clean and in reasonably good condition -- no tears or stains that I can find, but there's wear and fading in the center of the fitted sheet.

To enter, just become a follower (or let me know if you're one already) and leave a comment letting me know what you'd do with them. I'll pick a winner from comments left before 11:59PM October 10 and get them sent off.
