I'm not one to intentionally go to garage sales but when walking the dog and I pass one early in the morning, I figure why not have a look. This was the case a couple of weeks ago when a neighbour 4 houses down had lots of interesting stuff set out. As I like white lacy things, I spied 2 packages of brand new sheets with pillow cases for $5 each. Now there was only a top sheet and the pillowcases but that didn't matter because I loved the embroidery on each piece.
They were washed and thrown in the dryer but....the pillow cases came out looking like a scrunched up piece of newspaper. Then it came back to me. When we were first married all the cotton pillow cases had to be ironed to make them look fresh and smooth.
So, here I am many years later ironing pillow cases again and you know, I really don't mind because they're so pretty.
I like to link with Claudia at Dipity Road for her Finding Beauty meme because bloggers find beauty in so many different ways.
