Oh my goodness. There were 7 children in our house, and we just got whatever sheets mom gave us. I really do not remember having specific sheets at all.

Lori said...

My dad made me a platform bed that I used as a teenager. It was passed down to my son and then to my great nephew before it finally gave out! My bedding was nothing fancy, just a regular comforter. i think it was some blue print. Denim was very popular back then

JoyceLM said...

I'm an Army brat, so our beds were often what was provided to us. My mom sewed, so we had handmade bedspreads. Thanks for the giveaway.

I had a red and white panel printed blanket made by Mom. My brother had a matching so it must have been a generic picture, I can't remember.

Gill said...

Gill said...

The first sheets I can remember were candy strip flanelette ones!

Joyce Carter said...

Thanks for the giveaway. I don't remember what I had on my bed when I was growing up. I came from a large family and shared a bed with my sister so we had whatever my mom put on there.

Debra Lee said...

My bedding was nothing special. I can't remember it!

Angela said...

I still have the emboridary picture of Holly Hobby. But my room was purple from floor to ceiling... Really floors, walls, ceiling, built ins and the bedding was a white with purple flowers quilt....

Happy Cottage Quilter said...

I really don't remember having anything special. But I do love the pretty vintage sheets :-)

Lisa C in GA. said...

I had gingham, too...lavender and white, customized by my sewing Gramma :)

Maxine said...

My bedding was always bleached white sheets when I was in school. That was many many many years ago.

Abbigail said...

I had just plain old white sheets I guess because I don't remember anything special about them.

Becky said...

I had a double bed and my own room. My brothers had to share a room. I think my bedspread was a heavy white one from the Green Stamp place:)

Beulah said...

After we moved to the 'big' house I got my own bedroom! Double bed with 2 walls of windows...I would lay awake all hours of the night looking out the windows at the stars. The best part .... perched on top of the double bed was my great grandmothers feather mattress!!! [Are you surprised that I had allergy issues as a child?]

My bedding was a modge podge of my grandma's rose vintage sheets from the 40's during WWI, I loved it and I would love to collect all the rose vintage I could find, If I were to open an Esty shop, I think this is what it would be

Linda Meyers Gabbard said...

My mom liked to change things around alot by my favorite was in the early 70's. Every thing was big flowers. In bright colors. I remember since I didn't have a headboard she took a floral sheet, same pattern as the ones in the bed, and tacked it up the wall and across part if the ceiling. It was cool looking..

I guess this will confirm how old I feel at times. Most of those 'vintage' sheets that are so popular now like those you are giving away were on my bed as a child. I guess that must mean I'm 'vintage' too eh? LOL
