Thursday's Treasure

Today's treasures may not be ultra exciting to you. Finding these sure took me on a lovely walk down memory lane, though!
~*~
I am 99.9% sure that we had these sheets when I was a little girl. I remember liking the turquoise and orange combination and the delicate vines. Still do!

Do you remember this thick yarn? Apparently it was marketed for "smart gift tying", but my mom took it a step further. She used to tie this in bows on my curly pigtails- a la Nellie Olson from Little House on the Prairie. Mind you, we didn't have this swanky orange and black. I seem to recall a pretty blue, though, that I wore for school pictures in 1st or 2nd grade.

Both of these items will be in sosovintage one day soon. Would you believe I found 2 dozen of these orange and black yarn cards the other day? They are just begging to be used on someone's Halloween craft project! If you have a special need for them, don't hesitate to send me a message about a reserved listing.

My mom tied yarn like that around my pigtails, too. I'm pretty sure I looked ridiculous!

i've bought a variety of old sheets for that same reason--we had it when i was little. i've been meaning to make a quilt or something from all of them. i've actually found quite a bit of them in your etsy shop, too! i love the ribbon! i remember girls wearing red ribbon just like that for school pictures. lovely.
