Welcome to my mutterings to life in general and all that Jazz!

So this is my attempt at the wonderful world of blogging!

It will contain my ramblings of life, hopes, dreams and a smattering of what makes me smile!

So grab a cupcake, (hopefully one with zillions of buttercream!) a cup of tea and sit back and take yourself out from this busy life for a few moments................................

Curtains, Sheets and more Sheets

Me and My Shadow
Magpie Monday,
click to join in!

Well this will be a bit of a 'hurried'  Magpie Monday, on account of three children being off school, orders to get out, washing, ironing and deliveries to do!

My finds this week really are a blast from the past!

So from the top, we have a double pair of brand new candy striped sheets, just like I had on my bed as a child!

In the middle a lovely pair of heavy weight navy gingham curtains.

At the bottom a brand new double vintage bed sheet.

Now those that know me well, will know that none of them will end up as they were originally meant too!

As soon as I have a 'free sewing day' I will start creating.

Could not believe  that both sheet sets were brand new! and perfectly 'vintage'

I paid £6 for the striped sheets (two of them - double size)

£6.25 for the gingham curtains

and £5.99 for the vintage floral double sheet (only one of them but I have a great idea of what they will become!)

Will post pics at a later time to show what happened to them all.

Good Luck everyone and happy hunting!


  1. Looking forward to seeing what you do with your finds! I had those candy-striped sheets as a child too :)

  2. Candy striped sheets! I think the whole country had them on their beds in the 70's and they were really soft and cuddly from what I remember.
    Look forward to seeing what you create.

  3. Love, love, love your vintage sheets...I have a real weakness for them! Gorgeous x

  4. I remember those sheets, love the floral pattern too!

  5. I adore candy stripe sheets. I have a few that I've picked up here and there and I actually got a double flat sheet this weekend - with just green stripes.

    I'm not as adventurous as you though, but can't wait to see what you make with them all. x

  6. My comment for this is a bit late (sorry). However, I just wanted to tell you that I have a sheet identical to the pink floral. I inherited it from my mother in law. I would be interested to see what you did with it.
