Garage Sale Treasures

 While out and about hitting good garage sales, I came across these beautiful embroidered and crochet pillowcases.
 I love finding good linens for a good price and also in good quality.
At this particular garage sale, the lady had several sets of embroidered and crochet pillowcases.  I went through the sets, and of course, selected the best.
They were dingy yellow, but in good shape, for a $1.50 each.
I came home, rinsed them and then soaked them in bleach and laundry detergent in very hot water (overnight) and thankfully they came out beautiful clean!!!
I chose a set of these beautiful peacock embroidered pillowcases with the popping pink flowers...
...and these simple beautiful crochet edge pillowcases.  I plan on using them in the guest bedroom.
I love it when I find great deals like these!

  1. I like the pillow cases. I have a few vintage pair, but seldom use them now. I really like the peacock one.

  4. Those washed up beautifully! That crocheted lace is so pretty, and the embroidery is nicely done.
