Tuesday’s Display Chain

I jumped on board and thought I’d do Misi’s display chain this week…http://1890gablehousemusings.blogspot.com/
I pretty much never have my thoughts together enough to join but I do have this one I can join in on.
Lions/Lambs…well, I have the Lambs (sheep)….no Lions, just kitties.

But after looking at several blogs out there I don’t compare
(How about that Robin???

I don’t think anyone can beat your collection!)

Do you put off buying things you really need but buy things you don’t? 
I do that quite often but last week I bough some sheets for our bed…sorely needed too –
Got lots of them but the ends don’t want to stay on – well maybe you know how that is – you keep putting it off –
sheets aren’t cheap!
We went to Sam’s Club and I found these gorgeous 450 count Aqua Blue sheets…
they feel like Silk and they’re mine!
Can’t get the color just right with a photo but it’s close!
It’s like a cross between Robins Egg Blue and Aqua…a very Colonial Blue

A few weeks ago Kendra from Stone House Primitives
hosted a ‘Towel’ swap that I got in on
http://thestonehouseprims.blogspot.com/

I received a beautiful gift from Carol my swap partner over at
http://buttermilkcreekfarm.blogspot.com/

I couldn’t believe what she sent along with the beautiful towel.
