It's raining again...

but a basket of fresh vintage sheets and pillowcases is guaranteed to brighten my day. Why can't you buy new bedding in such lovely patterns? It's all bland stripes and twee 'shabby chic' these days. Mr Sheridan and Mrs Actil, you are missing a trick! It's time to delve into the 1970s archives and bring back some of these lovely floral prints.

I totally agree, but somethimes i think if they did still produce such beuties, the ones we have wouldn't be as special, and the 'thrill of the hunt' would be lost.

My thoughts exactly! - they really need to get on it. The closest I've seen to this kind of vintagey aesthetic in recent years was a brand called Art Park but they went out of business a few years ago. US companies like Urban Outfitters have cashed in on the vintage-print sheet vibe for the last five years or so- where ARE you, Australian brands!

I completely agree. If I had pretty floral sheets, then it might actually encourage me to make the bed.

LOL I am sure my husband would beg to differ teehee... though they are quite cute in my opinion :D

Absolutely! And then I'd never have to make up the beds as they'd look pretty rumpled or not! t.xx

You're making me feel old…
I remember having sheets a lot like that when I was a kid (in the 70s and 80s). They did have prettier sheets back then!

Here here! Oh dear when I think of the sheets we would have given to the charity shops in the early 90's when my parents separated.
Back then I did not understand.. I was about 14 and did think the height of chic was yellow & blue. I also had a predilection for putting dried flowers in old wine bottles.
