Ally's Lost and Found Weekend Link Up Party

It's been a while since our last Vintage Sheet Blog Weekend Link Party. I'm super excited to introduce you to a really creative Vintage Sheet Blog reader. And, as always, there is a fun prize for playing along. But first, an introduction:

Our Sponsor
Allison from the Day in the Life blog, has been a big fan of the Vintage Sheet Blog for a couple years.

She says, "The Vintage Sheet Blog brings so many people together with the love of vintage sheets. There are so many ideas and projects for inspiration on VSB. I love to see a new dress or home project using vintage sheets. The creativity never ends."

Allison recently opened an ecclectic vintage shop called Ally's Lost and Found. Her goal is to  put a spin on the old resale stores that tend to be dusty and densely packed. She wants to put items online where a shopper could sit comfortably at home and sip coffee while shopping.

While researching sewing and tutorials as a beginner, she found The Vintage Sheet blog among others. "These sources showed me that you don't have to always go and buy brand new. Vintage sheets are colorful with so many prints, they are made to wash and wash and they last. "

Allison's favorite vintage sheet projects are pajama bottoms and buntings {hey, me too!}

The Prize

Allison has put together a very generous prize for our link party.
There are 14 vintage sheet fat quarters

2 vintage hand crocheted doilies

1 Vintage 1970 McCall's Miss Petite dress pattern
2 packages of vintage Rick Rack and 1 package of vintage cover your own buttons

Enter to win all of the goodies:
There are 3 different ways to enter. You can just do one or do all three, it's up to you.

1. Since Allison is still new at having an online store, let's offer her some words of encouragement and advice. Please leave a comment telling Allison what you like the most about her store, or what you would like to see more of in her store. (1 entry)

2. Give Allison some comment love. Leave a comment on any of Allison's recipes, sewing projects, or life musings on her blog. (1 entry)

Join the Party
3. Link up to 3 vintage sheet projects that you haven't shared at previous VSB Weekend Link Up Parties. (1 entry each)

Thank you so much, Allison.

All entries must be in by Sunday, July 29 at 10 p.m. my time (Pacific.)  Good luck!

I stopped in at Allison's blog and left some comments. I was so sorry to hear of her friends passing. I lost my BFF 8 years ago, and I still miss her. A lot.

i love this shop. I love the fact she has vintage linens because alot of shops focus on just sheets but I have made things out of tablecolthes and shower curtains. I found a wonderful blogger who makes beautiful pillows out of handkerchiefs. I also saw some awesome uses for doilies.

i left her a comment and I'm about to subscribe
