Simple Pleasures...


Vintage pillowcases embroidered with roses, found at my favorite thrift store several months ago...


Good Morning/Night pillowcases I embroidered with my own lettering and trimmed with ribbon last summer...


I've been wanting red gingham sheets ever since I saw this bed last December......and today I scored! I refuse to pay a ridiculous amount of money on sheets, and I found this Ralph Lauren top sheet on clearance at Ross for $6!


I adore linens; old and new, handmade and store-bought, mix and match and mismatched! A perfect place for restful slumber and sweet dreams :)


Now perhaps I should get busy and finish up this A mon ami Pierre alphabet so that it can finally be made into a pillow for the bed???


(I've searched high and low for a link to this pattern but can't find one. Can someone help me out? It's a freebie called 'a et alphabet suite' by grille gratuites and designed by A mon ami Pierre.)

Good night, sleep tight, don't let the bedbugs bite!

Staci, I´m sure I wouldn´t be able to sleep for one moment if my bedroom looked anything like this. I think I´d just dream with my eyes open. Sigh... How gorgeous.

Oh, and if you google "a et alphabet suite" (including inverted commas, or whatever these two tiny stripes are called), you are directed to the freebie directly :o)

Thank you for the link to the freebie.

What a gorgeous set-up for your bedroom. Not much for red, but I love the way you did it. Makes me want to do something similar.

Like you freebie design, too. Nice stitching.
