Sweet Dreams are made of these...

While juggling several missions and projects at once over here in Museville, I have also been on a constant and tireless quest to find the perfect linens for my antique iron bed I purchased recently. As chance would have it, (thanks to sfgirlbybay!) I happened to stumble across Red Ticking, a most beautiful shop, with quite possibly the perfect bedding for my little iron lovely.

Come and see!

Matteo Bedding
vintage wash linen and Egyptian cotton sheets & duvet cover
cashmere throw
and linen bolsters
Isn't that headboard fantastic?

Window display of the linen set in the Seattle shop.
I love the little chandelier, too. I just want it all.

Is there anything better than vintage wash linen, Egyptian cotton, & cashmere?

Won't these gorgeous pillows that Ness made be beautiful on this bedding?

A slew of their hemp and linen pillows would fit the bill nicely and make the perfect backdrop for the gorgeous pillows Ness made for me, which will be front and center.

I'd love this basket full of Vintage European grain bags to be my laundry basket...

Unfortunately for me, these beautiful French concrete lamps sold already - but wouldn't they have been perfect lighting in the room to be?

Ahhh... sweet dreams, indeed.

What gorgeous linens... you could not do any better if you traveled to France, Belgium or Italy and went shopping for linens there yourself. Eye candy as always! Interestingly I just saw this same stone lamp for sell in Bussum, The Netherlands and it was selling for a song... I'm now regretting I didn't snap this up when I was there!

This linen is utterly scrumptious Isa, xv.

Oh my, love it all!!

hahahha.. wouldn't the old prairie pioneers be laughing to see what they hated on their beds being coveted today? .... I prefer silks and lovely cottons myself....

Perhaps you could get some paints at craft shops (I've heard it's pretty good stuff..... rivals the look of stone) .... find a lamp you like and rework the base....

Hi Terri! Having a fat enough wallet to purchase all my hearts desires is the biggest challenge! My poor credit card is screaming, "CODE BLUE!!" xo

Oh Antiques Diva, don't you hate regrets? It may possibly mean, however, that there is an even more perfect one waiting around the next corner! I read your blog, and I feel your pain of a move - although mine was much less painful, seeing that it was just across town. I hope it all settles in soon and I can't wait to read about all your new adventures and the beautiful things you run across! xo

Hi Vicki :) They did make my heart go seriously a'flutter. I can't wait to get my hands on them! xo

Hi Shawn! I've been over to see that heartsong house you have featured at least a dozen times this morning. I keep hoping that if I wish hard enough, it will show up here on my lot! ;) xo!

Hi Bumblevee, and welcome! Pioneers had egyptian cotton and cashmere? I don't know what they complained about then! LOL.
