Welcome to FTF for another Friday. If you'd like to share one of your favourite things this week, (and I'd love it if you did ) you can write a post and then link up with the linky gadget at the bottom of this post. It's such a treat for me to wander round and have a sticky at the things you love.
Most of you would realise by now , I'm not a frou frou girl. I hardly ever wear makeup. My house isn't full of frilly things . Last time I wore a dress people asked me if I was going to a funeral. However there is one thing I am totally girly about.
I am a bed linen freak. I adore pretty bed linen. I could be flat stony broke and I'd still have nice bed linen. Even when I was a broke single parent I always had a pretty bedroom, good sheets and the most gorgeous bed linen I could afford.
I've found is that bed linen can alter my mood and the look of my room. It can make your room look cleaner even when you have shit piled everywhere. It can make you feel better about all sorts of things. I think bed linen is probably even the answer to world peace. I have multiple sets of bed linen and in true Virgo style the sheets have to match and the pillowcases also have to be pretty ...it's a sickness. (Does it floor anyone else that European pillowcases costs about 40 bucks each ? Do they have gold sewn into the seams ? But I pay it because I am an idiot )
For when I'm feeling vaguely Moroccan....this is an autumn /winter quilt set
This kind of reminds me of a hotel room...and it's wonderful to sleep under.
In this shot my room is possessed by Laura Ashley . (and a crazy cat ) This is for when I'm feeling all Spring and Summer.
And sometimes I just like minimalist black and white .
I love my guest room linen...I should have bought this for our room!
It occurred to me the other day I haven't bought a new quilt cover in over a year so I'm going to have to start scouting round for some new stuff. There's nothing like sliding between the sheets when you have clean , fresh, gorgeous bed linen on your bed. You could be down to your last 100 bucks and it'll make you feel like a Princess - I promise.
I don't understand how anyone can sleep on cheapo sheets either....I guess that makes me a linen snob. Disgusting bally poly cotton sheets are yuk! Give me 500 thread count any day. Life is too short for ugly sheets.
So come on ...fess up ..is anyone a linen freak like me and how many sets of bed linen do you own ? How often do you change your sheets ?
P.S. I'm also a dishtowel freak ...I have about a hundred of them ...
