The fella drools in his sleep. He also sweats and emits as much heat as a mid efficiency furnace. Hot, sweaty and he drools. It’s like sleeping with a Saint Bernard.
Because of this I’ve never invested in a good set of sheets. The problem is … I’ve always wanted good sheets. Really good sheets. The kind of sheets that would make me feel like this in bed …
The kind of sheets Tricia Rose makes. Rough Linen sheets. That’s Tricia up there by the way. I don’t know for sure, but rumour has it Tricia only gets out of bed to pee. If I had those sheets, I wouldn’t even get out of bed for that.
Now, due to the good grace of Rough Linen, I actually *do* have a set of sheets like that! After 2 years of yearning after them, I got a set of Rough Linen sheets and pillow cases. I feel like a Queen. And not a poorly shod drag queen. An actual Queen with a sceptre and stuff.
And by the way, remember yesterday’s video on how to fold a fitted sheet? Not needed anymore. Tricia sends out 2 flat sheets instead of a fitted and a flat sheet. According to Tricia, fitted sheets were invented by manufacturers as a way to use less materials and therefore save money. Using a flat sheet as your bottom sheet is the way to go! Plus they feel beautiful. As Tricia says they’re made of “linen the pilgrims would recognize.”
I’ve been following Tricia’s blog and business for a long time now. I subscribe to her as a matter of fact. When she sent out a newsletter with a picture of her latest endeavour, napkins and tablecloths I couldn’t take it anymore. I emailed her like some sort of linen groupie gushing about the tablecloths and telling her I’d never seen anything so beautiful in my life. Don’t believe me?
How’s that for beautiful? I love a tablecloth that doesn’t need to be ironed. What’s better than that? It has a casual elegance. That doesn’t need to be ironed. She also makes matching 22″ or 16″ napkins.
After I emailed Tricia about my love for her tablecloths she suggested I might like to do a giveaway. Um. YES.
So that’s what I have for you today. Tricia has agreed to a …
You’re thinking, $250 for a tablecloth and napkins? Yup. Tricia’s linen is specially milled for her and she sews each and every item herself. Well, I’m sure she has helpers or something, but these babies aren’t made in a factory. These are exquisite, beautiful products with a rustic sophistication that will make you feel like a queen. With a sceptre. Plus they’ll last forever. And I mean forever. And the greatest part about linen is it just gets nicer and softer and more drapey
Even though this giveaway is for a tablecloth and napkins, I’m sure if you picked $250 worth of something else on Tricia’s site she wouldn’t turn you down. So go have a look and pick something out.
To enter, come back here and tell me what you’d choose if you won. (up to $250 value, but if there’s something more expensive, the Queen Duvet Cover at $350 for example, I’m sure Tricia would let you put the $250 towards it and then you’d only have to pay $100).
I know. It’s a fantastic giveaway and I deserve to be revered. As does Tricia.
Contest closes Tuesday, December 6th at midnight. Winner will be randomly selected by computerized thingamajig.
Finally – This contest is open to everyone! Yup. Worldwide. You have Tricia to thank for that.
The contest is now closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. Pretty much sucks to be you if you’re too late.
