I've fought hard to resist, but Alicia's influence has finally caused me to cave. I did it. Did what? Bought a 50 cotton/50 poly percale sheet (scandal!) destined to become an easy care, summer tablecloth similar to hers here, but aren't these supposed to be more wrinkle free? Eh, never mind. No time to stand over the dryer and take it out just in time to keep it from getting wrinkled!
Oh, the stacks of beeeeyoutiful second hand sheets left behind over the years due to all-cotton, anti-cotton-rich snobbiness! It's starting to hurt a little just thinking about what I've been missing out on and now, of course, after all those posts like this one and this one and this one and this one,too, is it just me or have they all but disappeared from the thrift stores? Never having spent much time in hot, humid climates, I didn't really get the idea of them being the "Sleeping-porch fabrics. Humidity fabrics." of which she spoke...that is, until our recent travels in Panama. Cotton sheets don't really work as well there. They take so much longer to dry and, believe it or not, they actually feel COLD on a breezy, rainy night. Too cold. Now I get it. Next time we go, I'm packing along only "cotton rich" ones, hopefully pretty, floral ones. The church rummage sales this year might still be a good source? I think the season opener around here just might be this weekend.
