Spring Bed Sheet Refresh with California Design Den

 Spring means warmer nights!  It's time to remove those heavy-thick layers and refresh your bedroom with a set of crisp white sheets.

I recently partnered with California Design Den to freshen up our guest bedroom with a set of new sheets.

I want our guestroom to feel cozy and comfortable, selecting quality sheets was the perfect start.

California Design Den has a commitment that comes to life in their products, which are crafted thoughtfully, beautifully, and sustainably with their customers in mind.

First impressions make an impact!  The sheets came packaged in an eco-friendly box.
For our guestroom, I chose Hotel Quality - GOTS Certified 100% Organic Cotton - Cool Crisp Percale Sheet Set.  Out of the package, the sheets may feel a bit stiff, but after a few washes, they will soften.

They even have a corner tag on the fitted sheet, to make it easier to make your bed!

The full elastic band on the California Design Den sheet ensures that the fitted sheet stays in place and fits like a glove.

Comfort is key to getting a good night's sleep.  I really hope our guests enjoy the new sheet set.

If you're in the market for quality sheets at an affordable price, I can absolutely recommend California Design Den!

Anemone Black & White

I enjoy shopping for flowers while in the grocery store.  But I always dreamed of having a cutting garden, where I could walk out to my yard and cut fresh flowers to bring into the house.  Growing your own feels so rewarding.  It's something I've always admired from afar.

A few seasons ago, I decided to get serious about gardening.  I put together a list of the flowers I wanted to grow, then shortened that list to the flowers that grew best in my area; zone 7b.  My favorite black-eyed beauty anemones were at the top of that list.

I ordered bulbs in the fall, thinking I'd plant them around my mailbox, where I'd be sure to see them as I pulled into the driveway.  Each year since, they've put on a show.  I was completely surprised they bloomed the first year I planted them.  Their satin-like petals and long stems are truly my favorite.  They're the first flower to bloom in my yard, as early as February.     

I ordered my bulbs from Floret Flower Farm and found the tips shared on the planting guide to be very helpful.
This season I added a few more varieties and I'm anxious to see them blossom.  

Anemones are simply stunning and easy to grow.  I hope this post inspires you to grow your own!
