I hope y’all had a wonderful Christmas! Celebrating the birth of Christ is always a privilege and never gets old. Besides acquiring a stomach bug, this was a very peaceful Christmas for us and for that I am thankful.
One of my best gifts this year was my brother and his girlfriend choosing to spend Christmas with us here in North Carolina! It is interesting that the older you get, the less important material gifts become. And while no other presents were necessary for me…
my husband bought me some fabulous new sheets that I’ll be posting about tomorrow. I can’t wait to tell you all about them!
So did you give or receive any laundry related gifts? Tell me all about them in the comments!
Any tips on getting stains out once an item has been washed and dried already?? I missed pretreating some stains on one of the girl’s outfits and I am afraid it’s set for life!
Bring it by and I’ll work on it 😉
Can’t wait for y’all to get back in town!
oops, the above comment was written under the wrong post! 😉
In the summer we go with 100% cotton – we love the crisp, natural feel! However, in the winter (especially times like right now when it’s 2-degrees at night here in E. TN!), we LOVE our flannel sheets. I’m not too picky about where I buy them, but I DO notice a difference when I pay a bit more and purchase them from L.L. Bean over the cheap sets at Target. Still, flannel is the BEST, no matter where I buy them! 🙂 We totally warm up with the addition of our heated mattress pad – LOVE!!! We were given a set of t-shirt sheets as a wedding gift 10 years ago, but we never could fall in love with them. I couldn’t get past the stretch factor and my husband was always too hot. 🙁 Happy New Year (soon anyway!)!
Yeah, I’m wondering if I can get over the stretch factor too! I’ve never tried flannel – thanks for the suggestion!
thanks, sweet lauren! 🙂
I love the tee shirt sheets also. I have found that we wear them out rather quickly. We mostly use cotton. I love flannel but it is too hot for hubby.
Oops – sorry, my comment above didn’t post where I intended it to! I’ll try again – please feel free to delete it.
I’m having trouble getting this to post in the right spot – I’ll try again 🙂
This is a topic you may have covered in the past (before I found you) but I’d like to know more about baby clothes and stain prevention/removal. My second son is due in 6 weeks and as I gather the baby clothes out of storage, I’m finding that they have yellowed and stains have appeared that weren’t apparent when they were put away. As I share clothing with my sister-in-law and cousin, we are all wanting to know more about this topic. The oldest stains are strictly breastmilk but as they have been recycled through cousins, they are more formula stains. Is there any way to bring new life into the sleepers and outfits that still have lots of wear left in them but don’t look so cute?
It really was a wonderful Christmas- snow and all! Next weekend I think I want to tackle your brother’s laundry room when I’m there. I’ll let you know how it goes. Maybe even take some before and after photos for here!
Kim! You are so missed here in NC!
If you decide to tackle his laundry room, you must take before and after pics! You know I’d be grateful! 😉
