It's the little things: scented drawer liner

When I was about 10, my dad's mother - my grandmother Helen - gave my sister and I a white four-drawer dresser to share. She had put scented liner in the drawers, with tiny blue roses all over it. I have looked a few times over the years for scented drawer liner - specifically the kind that's padded, with tiny blue roses all over it - but with no luck. Until a recent thrifting expedition, during which I found THIS: 

A fabulous vintage box, with a full roll of the padded, scented liner, intact! 

Look at those fab retro graphics - 

And those sweet roses - pink instead of blue, but the same pattern and the same soft padding - 

It even still carries the scent. And the price? Just 95 cents! My daughter has given me permission to line the drawers of her antique dresser. I think I might also line some bookshelves. Or maybe my barrister bookcase. (*squeal!*) 

I am linking my treasured  find with Vintage Thingie Thursday at Suzanne's blog, Colorado Lady

  1. Oh! Long ago I was given a gift of scented drawer liner paper, I thought it was the most marvelous thing. I've never seen padded before though, you lucky. Adore the packaging, so much fun. Enjoy!

    Happy New Year!

  2. Scented paper really is nice for your furniture. You can find plenty but not as you wanted. You were lucky finding this vintage box. I am going to join your other friends as a follower.

  3. You are so lucky to find that lining paper for such a great price. I'm sure you daughter will enjoy having the paper line her drawers as you did.

  4. Isn't it just the sweetest? Thanks all for visiting and for the kind comments! - Janet
