Watercolor Dots… on Sheets! (Hopefully that’s not just exciting to me.)

This post needs a disclaimer.  I feel guilty about pointing out things I love and don’t own, especially if they’re expensive.  I’m not saying I want to buy anything, just that if this thing fell into my lap for free, I would do a super dorky happy dance.  No big deal, just a girl and an imaginary happy dance.

What inspires this dance?  Some people love shoes or the perfect trendy jewelry.  I know this might sound weird, but I feel that way about bed linens.  Sheets and duvet covers and bedspreads epitomize comfort to me.  They’re what you wrap yourself up in on a cold winter morning, and if that isn’t enough, they’re pretty.  I’m sold.

Since I have a practical side and an average-sized linen closet, I choose to just really enjoy that switch from summer bedspread to winter duvet.  I choose not to buy lots and lots of sheets.

Enter temptation/inspiration, whichever way you look at it: Pine Cone Hill, which I only recently discovered, is selling a new sheet design with an all-over watercolor dots pattern.

Pretty, right?  Check them out with some classy linen:

The pattern is so subtle from a few feet away and so bright and perky up close.  I hope you enjoy the pretty, too.  Soon, it will be flannel sheets season, and I’ll get to make another free switcheroo complements of the linen closet.  Exciting stuff.

    Hannah! It’s so lovely hearing all of your home and kitchen stories. I just saw a faux-watercolor DIY the other day that used Sharpies and rubbing alcohol, and this duvet made me think of it. A duvet may be a bit large for such a project, but I love the idea (and the look, for that matter).

    Have a lovely weekend!

    1. Thanks for the sweet comment and the fantastic DIY ideas, Caitlin! Pillow cases are a great way to get a small piece of awesome, so I might just try that. Hope you enjoy your weekend, too.
