Err' day I'm dreaming of a house like my Dream Home and Homeware Pinterest board. I've even drawn pictures of what I want my kitchen bench to look like [Insert a wistful glance into the distance dreaming of a polished concrete counter-top and a big wooden butchers block].
One day, Holly, one day.
It's been on my brain for a long time; I want beautiful linen (actual linen or cotton/linen blends, no plastic) for our beds in simple colors (grey) that I can decorate with crochet (think a king-size comforter with a giant crochet motif like the back of my hoodie) and colorful art and furniture around the house. Happy.
Something like this slate grey linen bedding set from Parachute Home Bedding. Oh me, oh my. Now that's cool and a little bit fancy, don't you think? They have a cool story about how they were founded and what they do to give back, too. Now, I'm down for comfort and quality and good looks and awesomeness, who isn't?
The awesome thing about linen is that it gets softer the more you use it. It's a natural product, made from flax.
Right now we have two sets of sheets for each of the beds in our house. One set is cotton, one set is polyester. It's a hot climate here and the polyester makes me sweat, it's gross to sleep on and everything here gives you a static shock. I love cotton, I love linen especially. I want my sheets to be made well and they have to last. I'm prepared to pay more-than-cheapest prices for quality. It's going to happen.
Do you remember the baby blanket I crocheted for my friend's baby? 100% linen. I've got a bit of that linen left and I'm very keen to get crocheting another blankie for myself. Yes, one can never have enough blankies, especially blankies made of lovely linen.
Oh, linen. I want to curl up in that bed right now and go to sleep.
