You may recall that I am bit obsessed infatuated with bed pillows, sheets, duvets, and bed making, and that carries over to any bed in my home, whether it is mine, or the guest room...or a cot in the tent for Camp Cupcake. I want my bedroom to give me a feeling of calm and serenity whenever I look in as I come down the hallway, and I want my sleeping experience to be a little slice of heaven.
This being said, I am not one to have a linen closet busting at the hinges with a gajillion sets of sheets inside. Quite the contrary. I adore white bedding, and while I do add a splash of color on my guest room bed, for each of the beds I keep only a single set of cotton percale sheets for the warmer seasons, and a set of flannel sheets for the cold weather months.
(It seems like a space and money waster to me, somehow.)
I wash my sheets no less than once a week, (many times more often) because I love the feeling of sliding into fresh sheets, and after two years or so (give or take) flannel sheets in particular get worn pretty thin.
I noticed a couple of weeks ago that it was looking like it might be time to replace my current set of flannel sheets, and since my Mom had given me a giftcard for JC Penneys, I thought I would start my online search for while flannel sheets there.
(Just so you know, bright white flannel sheet sets are not as easy to find as other colors, or plaids, or snowman prints)
Well, I was thrilled to find that not only did they have white flannel sheet sets, but they were on sale 50% off. Even at half off, these sheets, which are called "Micro Flannel" sheets were on the spendy side, and I had to think about it for a bit.
(Okay, I didn't have to think too hard, because I had a gift card, which made the sheet set a screaming deal for me.)
I ordered these "Micro flannel" sheets, and waited anxiously for them to arrive, which happened to be last Friday. I opened the package, and pulled the sheets and pillow cases out.
Oh my gah.
So soft. So smooth.
Like buttah. (For reals.)
So not cold to the touch like most sheets feel in the winter time. I could hardly wait for bedtime once I finished making the bed at 9:30 a.m.
How aaah-mazing are these sheets? Let me say that I am very nearly positive that on the sixth day, as God was wrapping up all of hes creations, he came up with micro flannel, and this is what we will sleep on in heaven.
If your a flannel sheet person, you need to get yourself some of these.
(While they are still on sale half off!)
