Vintage Ralph Lauren Linens

Red is... hands down.... my all time favorite color....
So when I found these RL linens at a local flea market....they called my name!

This lovely white iron day bed was lounging outside another flea market for $50!!!!   A STEAL!!!!

 Now it resides in our sunroom where our Middle Granddaughter claims it as her own when she spends the night.

During the warm seasons this room wears creamy shades of white, but as soon as the temps start dropping just a wee bit......out comes the warmer colors....particularly the reds!












Below is a detail shot of the linens and the iron daybed....the sunlight on a cold day shining thru all the windows in this room.....wonderful....no S.A.D. here.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seasonal_affective_disorder

Light therapy truly does help w/ winter depression....get all the natural light you can during the winter months.






This delightful little chandy was scooped up for a song...another flea buy -$15

The old frame below was repaired by my sweetheart and filled w/ a print from Michael's.











Close-up detail of chandy....







Fall hydrangeas [silk of course] bring such warmth and cheer!







Our lovely white chair sits in the other corner....



This is where I sit whilst contemplating....aren't my fancy shmancy shoes just too cute! To see the white chair in another post go here.





This is the same day bed using Pioneer Woman's action Heartland....I just love playing around with all the wonderful filters and actions. If you haven't tried them here is where you can get them....free!









There is an old wooden chest sitting next to the daybed...it's color changes quite often. [Poor thing probably has some identity issues]

On top of the chest old suitcases store DVD's [our Grands watch tv out here while doing crafts] To see more of these suitcases go here.







Don't you just adore Fall???? One of my favorite seasons.....










Ralph Lauren's style is so rich, warm, elegant, but still very comfortable...kind of like my house slippers....very tactile and welcoming....

Here is a current collection, the Brookefield  Collection for her,  waaaay out of my budget, but as timeless as his stuff is who knows, might find this collection in a flea market someday!

But, until then I am loving my vintage Ralph Lauren linens and very thankful for the beauty they bring. 




Simple living really can be elegant.

My friend Revi [http://revisionarylife.blogspot.com/2011/09/spider-story-revised-lamp-and.html talks about light in her post this week, too! This is really good...

 1 John 1:5

This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
Until next time, keep shining your light! 
Remember, you are made in HIS image.



I agree!
