Continuing the conversation this week on Bed and Bath, how about this question:
Is sheet thread count important to you? Would you rather have a high thread count sheet OR is the fabric content more important?
I have to say, I don’t think I have any sheets with a super high thread count, maybe 400 or so, but I do love soft sheets. I think I might have some Egyptian cotton sheets in my stash, but I’ve never really splurged on super high-end sheets, most of mine were under $60 or so, but you can spend upwards of $100-200 for the really expensive sets.
What do you think about thread count? Important or can you take it or leave it?
Speaking of soft sheets, here’s a peek of the room I stayed in at Ree’s lodge. Now, these were some comfortable beds with some very soft sheets and bedding. I loved the Lodge and will do a whole tour of it next week, so stay tuned for that. It is an amazing place and you will love it! I slept like a baby in this bed.
Ree is just a doll and as nice as you would imagine her to be. We all had the best time hanging out together and eating the fabulous pizza dinner that Ree prepared for us on Monday evening. What a treat, you know I was on cloud 9 with this one! I’ll share a TON more later of our video filming, the Lodge and our whole 2 day trip. What a blast it was! One of my blogging highlights, for sure.
We saw a bunch of these on the way to the ranch…that’s some beautiful country out there.
Head on over to the Putting it All Together page for more on this subject from the other girls who getting in on the discussion.
I agree w/megan d. — quality cotton!
As for a bathroom “must have?” For me, it’s lighting. I rent so my options are more limited than if I owned, but I did come up with what I believe is a unique option for those boring, dated 5-globe light bars so prevalent in rentals
You know those thin, flexible plastic cutting mats? They come in all kinds of colors now, and they’re very inexpensive. Well, I bought a couple packages of four colors so I could have 2 red and an orange mat to use as a ‘backdrop’ over the light bar and behind the bulbs.
First, I removed the “globe” lights from the light bar, with the intention of replacing them w/more economical 14W “daylight” CFL bulbs. I also removed the brass socket covers over each of the 5 light holes. I then lined up the plastic mats, evenly spaced — red underneath, orange on top, red underneath — across the face of the light bar, marking the 5 bulb socket holes. I then cut out the holes, placed the three mats over the sockets, and replaced the brass covers — which I painted shiny chrome — and the new CFL bulbs.
It’s uniquely different, and a bit “artsy.” I really love it! ~:)
your blog makes me remember the days i used to go on vacation…ahh, the memories!
as for thread count, that wasn’t the ultimate factor. how it felt on my hands. that was key. of course i had to figure a way to slip my hands inside the package… =)
