I'm totally smitten with a recent find that I never thought I'd come across on one of my treasure hunting excursions... vintage embroidered pillow cases with the sweetest little bluebirds and a pretty floral design. There was only one, pressed and hanging neatly on a hanger. I almost passed on it since it wasn't a pair. But wait! Its mate was clipped together with some others and that just sealed the deal. Look! So sweet and in great condition. The fabric is a nice heavy cotton and the only downside is some yellowing in the centre due to age and, well... use. I'm pretty sure I can remedy that, though. I'm just noticing now that some of the green leaves are a teeny bit thread bare on this one but, really.... I don't think that takes away from how incredibly sweet they are. And a pair!
