Day 14 – The vintage gift pillows you never thought possible.

You really need to click through and read on, my friends… While in Houston Quilt Festival this year, I stopped at one of my favorite vintage linen vendors to buy pillowcases. If you know me, then you know I have a LOVE AFFAIR with vintage linens that include the handwork of our foremothers. That’s someone’s handwork, someone put time and effort into that and here it is for sale and I feel I must rescue it.

This particular trip I found a few funny hand towels, and a pillowcase with a cross stitched car on it. For $6, I could not pass it up. But underneath the car pillowcase is the one I’m referring to.

Now at the show, I even remarked to the vendor what my initial thoughts were: That this is a pillowcase to tell your husband tonight is “good to go” if you know what I mean. We laughed and had a chuckle and I bought it because it was funny. Then I unearthed it for last night’s Facebook Friday Live video.

And you all agreed with me! And that set me off to find out if these were for real, and YES, they are. On top of that, there’s a NO! Thanks to Ebay, these pillowcases are often referred to as “wedding game” pillows and were made as bridal shower gifts. There are bunny themes (which is hysterical) and also a pair of poodles that I can find so far. Also thanks to Ebay, this is coming to my house soon!
