Announcement, Introduction and a Prize


Ok... my dear readers and friends... I am filled with conflicting emotions as I write this... on the one hand I am sad to be letting go of this wonderful blog, but know it is the best decision for the blog and its readers.  On the other hand I am happy to see it go to a good leader and one less thing off my full plate. 

I have enjoyed getting to know so many of you through our mutual love of vintage sheets, and hope you will pop over to my personal blog and follow so we can stay in touch.

I hope you will all understand my reasons for this switch and welcome the new owner of The Vintage Sheet Blog with open arms....

I would like to introduce you all to  Heather, she has some really wonderful and amazing ideas and things planned.... so exciting!


 
Tell us about yourself.
I live in Southern California, about 5 minutes from the Pacific Ocean. I love running on the beach, baking, making cards for our troops, sewing, and thrifting. I have an Etsy store where I share my thrifted finds called, Grow Home.

How many vintage sheets do you have right now?
I probably have about 20 or so, plus pillowcases.

Any fun projects planned using VS?
I’m planning on sewing pajama bottoms for all the girls in my family for Christmas. Last year I made owl bags for 2 of my sisters and my niece from vs and scrap fabric.

How long have you been collecting vs's?
It has only been a few years but I’m hooked!

Where do you find your VS's?
I have a few favorite thrift stores that usually have a good selection of vs. I also find great sheets at estate sales.

The Vintage Sheet Blog can be pretty time consuming. Why did you want to take it on?
I have been following the blog for a few years now and I love it. I love all the tutorials, projects, and community of blog readers. Before reading the blog post about wanting to make a change, I had been thinking about ideas for the blog. I think it may have been serendipity. J

What kinds of fun things can we look forward to seeing on the blog in the future?
The blog was already in the process of a mini-makeover. No huge overhaul, just updated graphics and such. We’ll have projects highlighted in weekly link up parties. I love giveaways so I’m hoping that we have lots of goodies from our sponsors. VS friends are so warm and talented, I’d like to find ways we can give back to those in need. I have a lot of ideas but I am certainly open to suggestions.

The Giveaway is closed. Congratulations, Jenny!
