If I could be wordy for a sec, there's kind of a funny story behind these sheets. (But not between them...)
One night, we were channel surfing for something to watch. I stopped on QVC, and said to the hubs, "I don't understand these shopping channels. Are you supposed to just watch, and hope that something you need goes by??"
(You can see where this is going, right?)
The hubs says he doesn't get it either, and we both watch for a moment to see what they're pitching, which is super cozy polar fleece sheets. Now, at the time, we had flannel sheets, but they were disappointing. ("Sage" online turned out to be "army green" - and they weren't very cozy.) I'm about to change the channel, when she starts listing the sizes and mentions they have a "split king" set.
I'd never heard of split king sheet sets. The hubs and I spent the last few years buying (and returning) MANY mattresses (LONG story), and had finally ended up getting two twins for our king size frame, so the not-cozy, army green flannel sheets are twin size sets, which isn't great because the two top sheets compete for space in the center of the bed.
Turns out you can get a set with two twin fitted sheets and a king top sheet! Who knew?? We needed that, and I didn't even know it existed.
And I must say, we love these sheets (and obviously so does Rita). They're so cozy. It's like you're being caressed by bunnies while you sleep!
As an added bonus, they came with an extra set of pillowcases in a contrasting color, which we also needed because we each like to have an extra pillow.
So, yes, I guess you are just supposed to watch the shopping channels and hope something you need comes along. If you're lucky (like we are), the thing you need will be the first thing you see, and then you may return to your regularly scheduled programming.
Rita is happy we ordered them. She finds them much more cozy than our cotton duvet cover!
Does your dog approve of your bedding selections?
Thanks to BlogPaws for hosting Wordless Wednesday! Thank you for letting me be wordy! You can check out all the blogs in the hop here.
Sheets are very important. And these sound extra nice - especially if they are as soft as bunnies. Ruby doesn't much care about bedding as long as it is soft. However, Rosie, our cat, has very high standards!ReplyDelete
Of course the cat has high standards! Hope you are meeting them! :)Delete
We had no idea sheets came that way either. We have extra pillows and always have to buy a separate set of standard cases for the extra pillows. Mom likes more slippery sheets and not so warm. Bailie sleeps in bed and doesn't seem to care, but your bed sounds real cozy.ReplyDelete
I was really excited about the extra set of king sheets, since we both have an extra kin size pillow. And they look nice with the contrasting color.Delete
When we lived in VA we had 2 twin mattresses and I got so disgusted making the bed with all that extra top sheet. (Now we've got a regular king mattress.) The dogs love it when it's time to put flannel sheets on our bed. Rudy can hardly wait. Hops up, paws up the comforter and snuggles right in :-)ReplyDelete
That's so cute that the dogs like flannel sheet time!Delete
Those shopping channels can be kind of dangerous if you're bored, but this worked out perfectly for you! We almost bought an expensive box of Alaskan king crab legs from a Deadliest Catch captain one night, lol! Hmm, maybe we should've bought them after all.ReplyDelete
Lol. That's funny. You needed those! :) Bet they would have been tasty!Delete
Those sound nice. We hate flannel but these sound doable.ReplyDelete
If you find flannel too cozy, you'd probably hate these too. My sis is bummed cuz her hubby won't do cozy sheets.Delete
I don't have TV/Cable. I just watch DVDs so I guess I am really missing out! I had no idea such a thing existed either - cool! I tend to buy what is on sale, not what matches. You would probably scream in horror if you saw my bedding. As long as it is comfy, I don't much mind and neither does B. :)ReplyDelete
Comfy is the main thing! And, nope - I don't think you're missing anything not having the shopping channel! :0)Delete
Jaxson is true bed connoisseur. He prefers cold cotton to fleece and he doesn't like thick blankets. Harley prefers his bed.ReplyDelete
Rita's not a fan of the cold cotton! (Neither are we.)Delete
"Caressed by a bunny..." what great copy. Are you doing advertising copyrighting on the side?ReplyDelete
We just buy the highest thread count we can afford and I keep the TV in a separate part of the house from the credit cards.
I was thinking I should at least write a revew on their site with that line!Delete
Does dog hair stick to it?ReplyDelete
A little bit, but not too bad.Delete
WE have micro fleece sheets that go on in the winter - so cozy. But they are getting worn out. Maybe Mom better watch QVC tooReplyDelete
Mr Bailey, Hazel & mabel
Aren't they so cozy?!Delete
Sam loves ours almost as much as I do. Especially on cold nights and early mornings. ღReplyDelete
Same with Rita - cold nights and early mornings are when she wants to snuggle in!Delete
Never know what you might find on QVC. I have never watched it. The sheets are awesome especially for cold nights. And good they are Rita approved!!ReplyDelete
I plan to avoid watching it anymore - don't need to find out about more things that I need! :)Delete
I'm almost always too warm at night (even with the heat turned way down at night, darn menopause!) so I think those sheets would roast me, but they sound nice!ReplyDelete
I know some folks are not fans of toasty sheets. We keep our room pretty darn cold - don't have the heat on in there at all, ever, so the sheets are appreciated in the winter! :)Delete
I have a friend who is very addicted to those shopping channels, so I usually avoid them! Sounds like they have some good stuff though. Our flannel sheets shrink too much and fleece sounds really nice.ReplyDelete
I don't think Cricket does approve of our bedding choices...she goes up to bed and scratches at the top covers to get them out of her way!
That's funny about Cricket. Beagles definitely know their minds!Delete
OMG back in the 90s I was probably one of QVC's top customers lol. So much so that I had to stop ordering from them.ReplyDelete
Wait...why do you need polar fleece sheets in California???
Dakota doesn't go into our bedroom. We have a small condo in an apt building. Cody's litter is in my bathroom and all of his cat toys are back there and I am too afraid Dakota will eat them and I don't want him waking up our neighbor at strange hours if he barks :)
It gets pretty cold (to us anyway) here at night in the winter. And we like our room to be cold at night, so we don't have the heat on in there. We need those cozy sheets!Delete
Mr. N loves our down comforter. He loves down period. He likes really soft things.ReplyDelete
you could be doing the advert. Cole won't get near our bed unless he is protecting us from thunder. LeeAnnaReplyDelete
lol glad the sheets are great! I love fleece sheets!ReplyDelete
Oooh, cozy sheets are important and sleeping while being caressed by bunnies sounds divine. My frustration is king top sheets that aren't long enough to stay tucked in at the foot of the bed!ReplyDelete
My dogs love clean sheet day!ReplyDelete
How funny. But glad you found comfy sheets. I'm terrified to watch those shopping channels. I don't trust myself, lol. P.S. Rita looks great, as always.ReplyDelete
LOL that is great. I am surprised that you need flannel or polar fleece sheets there. I see it gets cold at night. We have regular cotton here....lol.ReplyDelete
Wow that really is too funny! It's important that Rita give your sheets the a-okay. Toby has his own bed. I'm sure he'd prefer to share ours but he's not allowed.ReplyDelete
hello pooch smooches its dennis the vizsla dog hay ennything mama and dada want to sleep on is ok with me as long as i git to sleep their too!!! however saya has destroyd three sets of sheets so far so i gess her standards ar more strindjent then mine!!! ok byeReplyDelete
