Vintage Lace Pillowcases

Pin It Now!

I painted my armoire this weekend but I still have to rehang the doors so I can't show it to you yet. I also still need to sand it, distress it, etc. It looks great and it makes my living room look so much better! Okay, on to the subject of this post. Here are some vintage pillow cases I got from eBay. I love them!

They look so much better than the plain white pillow cases I was using before. Now I want to find a lot more so I don't wear these two out by washing them every week!

What is it about vintage linens? We really love them don't we. I love so much stuff that is vintage, I love that it has a story that goes with it.

Love these beautiful pillowcases! I have bought some with beautiful roses , but I just display them. I'm afraid to use them.

How beautiful, I was at the Rose bowl flea market yesterday they had piles of linen for so cheap. I took a picture of it for my blog. That's what I also look for when I go to the flea market.
Have a beautiful day,

Very nice. I'm feeling very tired right now and would love to put my head down on those beautiful pillows. Did you make the other decorative pillows? I have a collection of vintage linens (some embroidered, crocheted, etc.) I plan on using them to make decorative pillows.

The pillow cases are beautiful, lace added to anything is so romantic. I'm looking forward to seeing your armoire "revealed".

I found your site through Ginger's Enchanting Cottage. Your blog is beautiful. I love the white linen. I have been trying to get up whatever it takes to paint our armoire. I'm wanting to paint it black. It's natural wood color now.
Have a great week.

Hi Cindy! Sunburned arms?? Oh how funny!! We got 20" of snow saturday! I'm wondering if the crocus will ever want to come out here. When I was a young girl I vowed I would never have doilies like my mother, well I should have never said that. Now I'm a doily and vintage linen junkie! Love the ones you found, they make your bed look even more elegant!! Sherry
P.S. Thanks for visiting me, am I doing ok?

Very Beautiful! I need to check out ebay more. I don't like to bid on items, though. I prefer the set prices.


Tracie said...

Looks wonderful. Now that the weather's so beautiful, everything in white is gorgeous.

Love your style, Cindy!

Good luck finding more pillow cases.
