...of the 'percale' type!!
A few weeks ago I came across NEW! in UNOPENED PACKAGE! VINTAGE! VERA! sheets by Burlington!!!!!
WELL they have been sitting by our dresser "Daring" me... I HAD TO!!
I have Always been a believer that if you LOVE something enough to have it in your possession, don't store it away in a dark corner - USE IT!!! (After all, who are you keeping it Pristine for - his next wife?? ~ ha, ha!!). People stress when I get out my Grandmother's crystal punch bowl for Happy Hr at our house, but it has created so MANY MORE great memories- I'm sure it would Please Grandma & Grandpa to know they are still a part of our life!!!
*and not a cup has been broken!!
Anyways, back to VERA...
I finally broke down, Neatly snipped open the packaging and pulled out those Vibrant, Crisp sheet!!! (Sheer pleasure)! Then into the washer, dryer, then onto the guest room bed!!! OH MY!!! THEY ARE SUPERB!!!
I only wish they fit our Master Bed ((sigh!)). Want to come visit? They are waiting for their inaugural SLEEP!!

Recently a friend bestowed us with this old Liquor Decanter with a music box in the bottom. The music box is in working condition, and we were trying figure out the tune. FINALLY I came up with 'The bear climbed over the Mountain' ~ but I couldn't figure out Why they would put a child's song on this bottle... Then J countered with a guess of 'For he's a Jolly Good Fellow'. Further investigation uncovered that 'The Bear...' was put to the music of the old lyrics 'For He's...'!!

Joining up today with MRS OLSON for
'Share Your Cup (SYC) Thursday' party!!
In honor of the occasion (and in keeping with FB 'throwback Thursdays'), I went through our archives to see what was happening in My 'Stuff' world 5yrs ago this month. When I caught glimpse of this beloved chaise that I had just schlepped home. It lost it's life shortly after this photo, when ~during an encounter w/ small children at a party~ it crumbled. Ahhh... it was good while it lasted!!

I'm sure EVERY.ONE. of you know how once you get started on something, it is hard to stop...
The 'svelteSTUFF studio' is NO exception!!
...OH! SO! FUN!
Yes, there are still a few designs rambling around in our heads...
J: "How about moons?"
and Other designs need some 'tweaking' and 'reworking'...
So I foresee more additions to our 'NorthShore Fall2015' collection in the near future!!
Yes, it's true.
I'm easily amused.
It's all good right?!
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN CHECKING OUT MORE OF OUR 'NAMESAKES' - MANY OF THEM ARE IN THE svelteSTUFFj ETSY SHOP ~
