Girls Room Update: Embroidered Eyelet Sheets & Window Treatment

I've been dying to show you these sweet, widely embroidered eyelet sheets for the girls bed, compliments of my newest sponsor, The Bed and Bath Hut.

But first, let me remind you all to enter my current giveaway...a dress from Shabby Apple.  Enter HERE.


A couple of weeks ago I shared with you all one of the rooms we've, for the most part, completed at the house.  It's Kalyn's and Ashton's room which you can see more of HERE and if you want a real shocker, you can see what it and the rest of this house looked like before we moved in HERE.


The white sheets are 400 thread count and have a deep, eyelet lace embroidery.  They're beautiful, and soooo soft.  I surprised Kalyn and Ashton by having them laundered and on the bed when they returned home from a night at Grandma's and Grandpa's house.
They also come in all of the colors shown below, and for only $59 you get the set (two pillowcases, a flat sheet and a fitted sheet) ... delivered to your door!  No shipping fee!

Isn't the detail in these sheets lovely?   I just love the crisp pop of white...it's so fresh looking.  Eyelet is so dainty.


Here's the bed made up BEFORE, without the eyelet sheets 


And AFTER, with the addition of the eyelet sheets:



The Bed and Bath Hut carries a full range of bed and bath linens ...almost 4,000 different items!  They have comforters, baby bedding, quilts, bed in bag sets, duvets, and 2000 or so sheet sets.
I have my eye on this set of Battenburg sheets for my bed.  


I also made some changes to the window treatment in this room.  The drapes (fabric shower curtains) are hung on an extra rod which hangs on coat hooks rather than traditional drapery hardware.  Above them, in between the hooks, is a matching topper.  Before, and because I just used the first thing I could find that I already had to hang these on (I am impatient), I used a silver rod...we've swapped that out for another one I had and just got unpacked.   It is a perfect match to the gold tones in the leaves of the hooks and window topper.  See the difference.


BEFORE with the silver rod


AFTER with the antiqued gold rod.  Better, don't you agree?


The girls don't have a view outside their window so we also hung an embroidered cotton panel to allow light to flow in. Although my photos are not good, I love the way the sun shines through these light cotton panels, highlighting the embroidered work.

I am still working on the rest of the house and will share more updates soon. 

If you visit please let them know that I sent you over.




I used to lie between cool, clean sheets at night after I'd had a bath, after I had washed my hair and scrubbed my knuckles and finger-nails and teeth. Then I could lie quite still in the dark with my face to the window with the trees in it, and talk to God.
