Bed, Bath, Linen and More

My first 10 years on Ebay were spent learning about Bed, Bath, Linen and More

Everything I know about bedding, I learned from Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein

Truthfully, I began selling bedding online 14 years ago when bedding was crafted from gorgeous 280 thread count Egyptian Cotton Sateens like Jardiniere, or Guinevere, or Lambert Stripe, or Stone Harbor.

Tommy Hilfiger had Meadowcroft, a stunning Navy Blue that I still see occasionally on some Hollywood movie of yesteryear. I don’t think Calvin Klein has a had another blockbuster Bedding Collection that could beat Bamboo Flower or Anemone.

Ahh, Anemone, with that large floral in perfect lavender on a bluish lavender background. I couldn’t find enough fabric to make all the shams in-demand by that great collection.

While you’re visiting a few collections, I’ll share some stories from those early days that you might like to hear–

Indoor Outdoor Tablecloth in Cotton from Cynthia Rowley

Indoor Outdoor Tablecloth

More than once I’ve purchased a stunning tablecloth only to be disappointed when I got home and found that it was plastic. I love Cotton tablecloths. Don’t get me wrong, I love Peva (plastic) tablecloths too, but mostly for outdoor barbecues. When I’m cooking for company and setting a fine table, I want a nice Cotton Tablecloth.

Cynthia Rowley of New York has some stunning new tablecloths that offer the best of both worlds. They are made of Cotton yet sturdy enough for Outdoors or Indoors. And the best part is– a few of these tablecloths are pretty enough for any dinner table inside the home.

These Indoor/Outdoor tablecloths are crafted from Cotton yet sturdy enough to display your favorite picnic lunch. Many of these beautiful tablecloths also come with a hole in the certain for your summer Umbrella. I chose the ones without the hole as they were just too pretty for the picnic table only!

Womens Sandals and Canvas Shoes for Summer

Womens Sandals and Canvas Shoes for Summer

Because I hate wearing shoes so much, I would be happy if I never left the house. I have to tell you, I love going barefoot. All these wonderful shoes look yummy, but I would rather be barefoot no matter what.

Women's-ShoesOf course, I know that is not sensible, not even rational in this day and age. No matter how clean a floor might be, there may be other dangers brought into the house by someone else’s shoes. Like an angry bee who would rather be outside to soothe his wounds from being stepped on and crippled.

I know, this story has taken an ugly and outrageous turn. These are the sort of things I hear from hubby though when I’d rather be barefoot. He even coaxes me with flip flops, but no. I like my barefeet cooled by wooden floor or snuggled by warm carpeting.

I have to admit though, I’m sure eyeing one pair of those canvas slip-ons. Let me see more!  [Read more…]
