Only sleep on white sheets--
anything else would change your personality.

I love this saying, too. Oh how I would LOVE to hang sheets outside again, but with neighborhood restrictions (stupid!) and all the pollens (gasp!) I haven't done this in a long time.

Beautiful photo!!!
Hugs,

Ah, those wonderful days of hanging laundry out to whip around in the wind. Sun-warmed and wind tossed, white or colored, sheets smell so good when they have been warmed by the sun!

I love sun dried sheets... there's no other way that competes ;)

I'm looking at what Jane has written and I'm wonderful what are neighborhood restrictions?


best wishes
Robyn

These simple maxims that seem wiser than I am are always true. I haven't slept on a coloured sheet since I was 12. Surely I must be very firmly me by now? And looking at that image, I'm inclined to go back to bed.

Katherine Hepburn...what a hoot!

Hey...saw your kitchen! Darling!

I am in total agreement about white sheets except my husband travels a lot and brings home gifts of coloured sheets he thinks are so nice. I'm stuck with khaki and beige...no, no, no ...I tell him sheets MUST be white. He thinks I'm just being wierd.

Ah yes. I spent yesterday washing, starching and ironing my sheets. Spraying them with lavender. Sleeping last night was heaven.

my mother always hung the sheets on a line to dry ... the fresh air fragrance can't be duplicated.

My mother always had white sheets when I was a child. Thought it so boring as other women in the neighborhood has sheets with colors and patterns. I see the beauty in the white sheets now.

This week, I get my clothes line restrung. Need those sheets from the line.
