Where are all the pretty sheets?? I went to Bed, Bath and Beyond to get a new set of sheets Sunday and I can't find any pretty sheets. Nothing! Where are the roses, polka dots, flowers, pretty designs, even hip modern designs?, Heck I'll even take pretty stripes, but nope. Also while I'm asking what happened to 50% cotton and 50% poly pillow cases? Nobody makes them anymore? I hate all cotton sheets. I know it's popular and everyone loves them...but once you wash them they turn to cardboard if they aren't a very high thread count. I love nothing more than a smooth, cool, crisp...and I mean CRISP set of sheets and pillowcases that stay cool all night. You can feel them when you come across them. Luckily some are still around from years past and I found them on ebay. Beautiful vintage 60's and 70's pillowcases!
I won a few lovely auctions of mis-matched cases in beautiful light colors with such a nice feel to them. A nice dip in the wash and they are good as new. Actually better since you can't find them anymore! Don't mind my bare mattress..*s*!
Aren't those polka dots sweet? I've got 5 fabulous pink ones I won last night that I can't wait to put on the bed! BTW, if you know of any sources for new pretty sheets that don't cost a small fortune, please pass along the info!
Next up..planning a quilt for my bed! I've never made a king size quilt before so this should be interesting. Summer time is hard for us to use the duvet since it feels like it weighs 20 pounds. I use just a sheet but poor hubby needs more, so nice quilt will be perfect for him! So what pattern to use. I've got a few choices narrowed down and I think I've almost made up my mind...more on that later!
