I love white bed sheets. Just in case I’ve never told all of you that about me, well, now you know! I’m not sure what the attraction is – they’re crisp and clean and so beautiful right out of the dryer…I’m not entirely sure how to explain it, but I really just adore them.
And let me also just come on out and say that I am a BIG FAN of the top/flat sheet. I see lots of people these days talking about how the top/flat sheet is unnecessary, and they don’t even use one. WHAT? Why on earth would you NOT use one?! It’s a lovely little slip of added comfort! Come on, people!
So when PushpLinen contacted me regarding a product review of their sheets, I gladly accepted! The BEST thing was, when my sheets arrived? They were WHITE. It’s like they just KNEW what I liked without me ever having specified! It was meant to be.
PushpLinen sheets arrived packaged like your average sheet set, but the difference here is, certified 100% cotton sets come straight to your door directly from the manufacturer with no wholesalers, distributors or department stores to get in the way.
They washed up perfectly and came out of the dryer beautifully. Nice fit to the mattress, as well!
I’m one of those people who is pretty particular about their sheets. There, I said it. I have certain things I look for when it comes to purchasing sheets for the beds in our home, so when Deepak from California Design Den contacted me about reviewing a set of their sheets, of course I was super interested!
I hadn’t heard of California Design Den before, so I stopped to do a bit of research, and I was impressed by what I found. From sateens to percales, every set of their sheets are crafted using fine materials, superb craftsmanship, and eco-friendly production processes. Customers can buy their linens through retailers like Wayfair and Nordstrom Rack, and many of their sheets are also best-sellers on Amazon! In addition to sheets, the company also offers duvet covers, comforters and quilts, and their website makes it easy to shop all of their offerings by size, color and fabric.
My first test of a new pair of sheets is how they come out of the dryer. If they’ve become twisted and rough in the dryer, I’m already agitated with them when I pull them out. But there was none of that agitation with these sheets. They came out just crisp enough to be considered “new”, but still super smooth to the touch.
We love to have people over to our home. It’s just one of those things, I guess. Our feeling is that God gave us this home, and so we feel led to share it with others! That may mean a simple dinner, or a weekend stay, or a place to crash in tough times, or a variety of other things. Regardless of the circumstances, our doors are always open!
So you can imagine that I like to be prepared for whatever may come, right? (If you have been with me here on the blog for ANY amount of time, you KNOW that’s the truth! Ha!) In lieu of that fact, I wanted to share a few thoughts about having house guests.
What I Do
Keep lots of linens on hand! I never want anyone to feel like they have to ration the amount of towels in the bathroom. If you need a towel for your hair, one for your body and one for…well…I can’t think of something else, so whatever you may need another one for, you will always find them in our guest bathroom. Extra pillows are good, in case yours aren’t the same as theirs, and they need some extra cushion comfort. And extra blankets are good, too, in case anyone gets cold!
