I love old sheets....

June 27th, 2006 at 12:04 am

I just love old sheets...I dont care what color, if there is a small hole, I could care less the thread count...or if the sheet has had a second life as a drop cloth while painting....

Why my fondness for old sheets you might wonder?

Well....I live in a open/ tri-level house...and I spent a good part of my day covering every window and doorway with every old sheet I could my airconditioning is only having to cool about 900 sq ft, instead of 2000. (those sheets really do make a difference..especially if youre not too hung up on making an interior fashion statement. Then again, isnt that sort of an eclectic look or maybe an 'extreme shabby' look...(honestly, I dont care so long as its a little cooler in here! lol)

The house is almost livable having done this...if you consider 80-85 degrees livable...which I do, since before today the house averaged 95+....downstairs...

Is winter almost here???

    I hope it cools down a bit, we could do with some of that weather here (like that will ever happen).

    You have the same interior designer as I do!! I hauled out my collection of white sheets and have them over all the windows that get a considerable amount of sun. What a difference. Plus, I think it feels cooler to me, having the white shade up. Whatever works!!

    I have fans running tonight, so there is a breeze going through here, and I keep washing my hair, so my head is wet. I can't wait til it rains. And, like last summer, I promise I won't complain about the rain.

    oh boy....bring on the rain....I would love a nice torrential downpour right now....

    DH came home tonight ...his exact words... "WTF"....LOL I said, calm down, Im just trying to cool things off a bit!!!

    I am hoping tomorrow we will feel the is amazing how a little bit of age makes such a HUGE difference to your heat tolerance.

    I will take the cold weather and a nice toasty fire to this anyday!!!

    I am not kidding you! We have switched weather patterns again! We were only like 79 today here! Unheard of for the upcoming 4th of July weekend. All the weathercasters are doing the happy dance. We may hit 85 this weekend. I wish winter was here too! Go stick your head in the freezer (hey, it helps!!)

    Wish you had some of this cool weather we have been enjoying. Down in the high 50' and low 60's at night, wish I had screens on the windows so I could open them.
