A Week of Pillowcases - Day 2

I'm playing along with Kirsty's pillowcase week over on Pip's blog so my mission for today was to go op-shopping to find a nice vintage floral pillowcase to try some more pillowcase projects.

This was all I could find at Vinnies......not exactly vintage, but there are two matching pillowcases and they are still pretty. They're in the wash now so they'll be ready for later in the week.


I did find something lovely and vintage though......a gorgeous floral single sheet set! There's still another matching set that I left behind (I really have no more room to store any more fabric).


I also found these lovely rattan baskets.......


....and oodles and oodles of trim (sorry about the fuzzy photo!)


Here's a close up of my favourite bits of trim!
