sponsor giveaway :: garden laundry


Thank you so much to Cara of Garden Laundry for putting together this little post. Do check her fabulous selection of vintage sheets at her Etsy store, and leave a comment on this post to win a $30 gift certificate to Garden Laundry. I'll close comments on Wednesday, June 22.

Comments are now closed. Congratulations to Jill K! And thanks to Garden Laundry!

P.S. Vintage sheets are PERFECT for the lining of the Bohemian Carpet Bag!


There are so many projects floating around using repurposed vintage items. I am over the moon with dresses like this:

What can I say?  I have a soft place in my heart for upcycling. It first started with our upcycling furniture blog, Twice Lovely. This gave way to repurposing with vintage linens, such as using printed floral sheets for upholstering, throw pillows, and slip covers.


And so, Garden Laundry was born to land all our lovely vintage finds.

I’m a contemporary floral artist and mom of 6 little littles, (don't worry, I have lots of loving help with the scrubbing, and lots with my laundry, too). Here’s an example of my mainstay, which is currently not listed online:

Anne Marie is the main contributor to Twice Lovely, continually breathing life into old, throw-away furniture. She is currently pregnant with her 4th child and is taking it easy on the furniture for a while. Together as friends, we have fun collecting and trading ideas. One day, I came across this folk quilt that has repurposed vintage sheets and prints worked into it as a most beautiful piece of art. I fell in love.


I was going to give it away on here, but Layla from the Lettered Cottage scooped it right out of my humble little shop this week (and actually featured it on her big fancy blog)! Imagine that! So, we’ll just have to settle for a $30 gift certificate, and I’ll let you guys do the picking and repurposing for yourselves. Don’t worry, there’s other garden laundry bouncing around in the shop right now for all your upcycling needs.


Like this crisp vintage sheet for 10 buckaroos.

And if you are interested in unique vintage bedding, we collect that as well.  

Simply ‘heart’ our etsy shop and “like” Then comment here on a favorite Garden Laundry item, and you will be entered to win! Here’s to lovin’ your laundry!
