One of my Favorite Things
Okay, I'll admit it. I am a linen freak! Some women love clothes, some drool over shoes, but not me, give me a good set of sheets anytime! Forget Gucci, I'll take Martex! My favorite time of the year is when the White Sales take place. I feel my heart start racing and my palms sweating in anticipation of a great find. There is nothing like a new set of sheets on one's bed. I have lavendar linen spray that I love to spray on the sheets but unfortunately Mr. P isn't as enthusiastic! As a compromise I only spritz my pillowcase. Potpourri and other "smelly" girly things gives him a headache:(
When my son left home I found I had some extra time on my hands. For years my strapping young man would rummage through the linen closet like the proverbial "bull in a china shop." I tried everything I could to keep in tidy but to no avail. Alas, I could finally have my dream linen closet. So off to Wal Mart I went. Armed with baskets, lace and contact paper I came home on a mission. I even had beautiful smelling lavendar in there, for goodness sakes! The end result is what you see above. Now mind you, I am the only one who appreciates my linen closet but that's okay, just looking at it makes me happy! By the way, I never got the hang of folding fitted sheets as you can see but that's another post! So there,I said it. I am Susan P. and I'm a linen freak. I must admit sometimes though I wish that young man was here to mess it up.
