Crisp White Vintage Linens

Many of you have noticed I have a catagory for white linens, you probably wonder why I don't just group those into my bed and bath catagory. I believe you can never have enough white linens of all sorts. Especially for your bedroom, there you should have an abundance. No matter what your design scheme you can always add white, to give it that fresh crisp clean look. If you are going for the romantic, shabby, beachy or cottage look you can never go wrong with adding vintage white linens. They will only compliment the other color scheme you are using.
Each of us is a collector of some sort. And if you're like me, my collections change often, but my one constant is always vintage white linens. I use these in each bedroom, and my guest room always gets compliments as they love the linens and embroidered pillowcases. Just a sweet touch to show your guest how special they are that you have pulled out the good linens for them.
If you have not tried to mix vintage whites with your current bedding, try just one piece and see how it adds just that crisp feel to your bedding.
I would love to hear from you who may also collect vintage linens or those of you who love the vintage whites. I know I'm not alone out there. So please, post a comment.

The First Day Of A New Year

I always find it so exciting to think we are at the beginning of a new year. All the possibilities and opportunities ahead of us. I am inspired by the many kind notes that I have received from so many of you. And with this new year I am so excited to bring you new and different decorative items for your home as well as sweet gifts for dear friends.

There are so many new color palettes that will liven up your home and these work beautifully with cottage, shabby or romantic decor. I am looking forward to bringing you those adorable little touches that will add just that sweet touch. I love mixing the vintage touches like Grandma's mismatched china, even with a few little imperfections it still gives that quaint homey feeling to your kitchen. Lovely vintage platters hung on the wall are sure to get attention and really are a great replacement for pictures. Mix things up a bit, add color, add vintage these are the things that add personality to your home as well as interest.
So I wish you all a very Happy And Creative New Year!
