Grand Opening Giveaway- Day Seven



Today's interview is  giveaway is from the lovely April of Jane Says Vintage.  You can also find her darling blog here.


How many vintage sheets do you have right now? 
Well that would depend on if I count ALL my sheets including the ones that are up for sale or waiting to be sold....and that would be an embarrassing number. In my personal collection I limit it to 10....when I find a new one I LOVE...I try to get rid of one to keep the sheet collection at a minimum.

Any fun projects planned using VS? 
Not at this time....I mostly sell them for others to enjoy and the ones that belong to me....well I would have a very hard time cutting into those.

How long have you been sewing? 
I don't know if it's fair to say I sew...I can definitely make things with my sewing machine....but a "sewer" I am not....would LOVE to be one though...and don't you think for one minute that learning is not at the top of my to do list.

How long have you been selling vs?
Not even one year yet.

How long have you been collecting vs's?
several years.

Do you have a fav vs print? Absoluetly ..... don't we all.
(Note from me(Jen)-I have never seen this VS and I LOVE it and covet it now)




Where do you find your VS's? thrift stores...thrift stores....thrift stores.

Now On to the Giveaway: Please leave a separate comment for each item you complete. You can do one or all of these things.

I love the "totally teal" vintage fabric! Daisies! Her thriftshops must be pretty cool and she certainly has an eye for finding vintage fun stuff. I love that pink plastic tablecloth too.

What don't I love? I am sort of picky in the colors I love in VS-I found 2 sheets to covet (and am so heading back to buy if they are still there on pay day). I also love the books and trims. The shop prices are fair and shipping is reasonable. Now a favorite shop I will wander through there often!
