white bed linens

embroidered white cotton pillow case

I like to sleep on white or natural 100% cotton sheets. Over the years I’ve bought a lot of them second-hand, at rummage sales. I never bleach them. I like the way they get kind of mellow and off-white with the passage of time.

These pillow cases used to belong to my grandmother. My mom gave them to me several months ago. They had been stored in Grandma’s cedar chest for years – like new – never used. We both figured it was time someone enjoyed them.

When I get into bed at night I pull up the covers, and rub my cheek against thick, vintage cotton.
