Can You Smell French Fries?

I can.
Since spying this lovely, lovely vintage sheet quilt several months ago, I decided that I would join the ranks and start scouring my local thrift stores for old sheets. And Bada-BING!!

Can you say, 2 all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a seseme seed bun??????

I can, too!

Now, I'm not such a brainiac when it comes to knowing the names of these cute folks.

Can you help a girl?

All I can think of is the "Hamburgler".

Man, this was a sweet ad campaign. Are you feeling the love on this??

Look at this perfect Katie Jump Rope Fabric to go with it!

It will all be VERY vintage-y by the time I finish with it, in 2027. Let's see Katie Jump Rope came out in 2007?

So by 2027.....yep, it'll be vintage.


  1. Mayor McCheese
    the Fry Guys
    Uncle O'Gimacey
    Birdie the Early Bird
    and of Course Ronald!!!

  2. Wow, Nancy. You would be my hero of the day!!!

  3. That Vintage Sheet Quilt is what inspired me to be in a vintage sheet swap! And I still have the nice little bundle of sheet fat quarters sitting in front of me, because they are so pretty and I'm too afraid to cut into them! And, I can say, "two all beef patties...." When I was probably 10ish? Give or take. I was on the radio and won! Cause I could say it completely and fast! LOL. And Nancy; SAWEEET! 2027! like you have anything else to do! Geesh. LOL. P.S. That is one awesome purchase!

  4. Do you get some money from the big golden M today for your commercial?? :D I didn't even know they MADE sheets like that. Go figure. I can't wait to see it all done - someday.

  5. Oh no! One more thing I'm going to be looking for in thrift stores now! What a great sheet. Who knew they even made sheets like that?

  6. Wow. The only one I could think of was hamburglar and grimace. And who would have thought you'd find those at the thrift store??

  7. That's awesome -- love it. I bet there is someone on eBay dreaming of that sheet. Might be big $$$. Probably not. :-)

  8. Wow, that is amazing fabric! I can't believe they made sheets like that!

  9. ok I just had to laugh who would ever find a McDonalds sheet but you, go girl get that thing done can't wait to see it. Love the Katie Jump Rope

  10. Way awesome Des! Looking forward to 2027 to see the completed quilt ....

  11. What an awesome find! Looks like the Katie Jump Rope was made to coordinate with it. That's going to be a great quilt. Thanks for sharing.

  12. What a find! I can't wait to see what you do with it.

  13. The Fry guys were also on the sheets.
