As I was thumbing through each page very slowly .. I saw a wonderful article and 10 page spread on vintage feedsacks !! A light went off in my little head ... These are the exact treasures that Marydon and Harold collect, trade, buy and sale !! These are gorgeous, FuN printed pieces of fabric, that hold such sweet memories of simpler days in our history !! Days when everything was used, re-used, recycled, and nothing EVAH wasted .. Scraps went to quilt making, and to cover buttons, hairbows and bands !! The larger pieces were made into little girls dresses, and matching doll dresses, EvEn old Barbie doll dresses !! I am soo amazed with ALL the creativity that went into making all these things !! Sooo very sweet !!
Actually when I was in Marydons home, I would go down in their little shoppe, and just stare at the neatly washed, ironed and perfectly stacked piles of feedsacks !! They must have thousands that they have for sale !! All marked for inventory, and all sooo PERFECTLY piled into shelves .. Simply amazing !!
