Antique French Linen Sheet

I finally found a lightwight summer replacement for the cozy down comforter that is usually folded at the foot of our bed. Seeing that is now mid-August, it was about time! We obviously weren't using the down comforter at night, but the bed looked so bare without it that I couldn't stand to take it away.

So when I spotted this gorgeous antique linen monogrammed sheet (seriously on sale!) from an Etsy seller in France, I thought that it might be a perfect option. And with that beautiful red monogram, how could I resist?

It fits right in with all my other red, white, and gray bed linens, and adds a charming French detail.

The sheet is made of two homespun linen panels that are seamed together in the center, and the "AA" monogram falls just off-center to avoid the seam. The sheet is about 70" wide, which is just about right for laying across our queen size bed.


And the placement of the monogram could not be more perfect for displaying at the foot of the bed, layered on top of the gray checked blanket and underneath the red and white antique quilt.


And the best part? The sheet arrived all the way from France about two weeks ago... on my birthday. Happy birthday to me!!

Personalized French Stripe Towel - YELLOW
And I have a new color of the monogrammed kitchen towels - a golden mustard yellow. It's lighter and sunnier than the Dark Mustard color I already carry, so it's perfect for a cheerful country kitchen.

I'm off to pack up some more orders... Hope you're having a great week!
