hi all. The very sweet Maria from Dreamy Whites has been kind enough to do a guest post for me while I have been very unwell (which is why I have been missing). I know you will enjoy this beautiful post…..
Hello Marley & Lockyer Readers!
I first would like to thank Ness for inviting me to guest post on her beautiful blog.
It is a real honor to be here.
She is one busy girl, and I was happy to fill in for her.
I know Ness loves linens just as much as I do. So I thought I would do a post on how I arrange linens in my bedroom.
I have an obsession with linens. Especially anything that has a monogram on it or might have the word french attached to it.
I recently purchased some beautiful linens from
I love them and I think they mix nicely with my vintage linens.
I thought I would first share a few photos of the french inspired pillow slips I bought from the talented Ness.
I love this vintage french wine label that Ness added to this slip.
I also love the little M & L tag she attaches to her designs.
I ordered this La ballon pillow as well.
These pillows are made from a crisp white cotton.
I love how bright of a white the cotton is.
Ness also made the 1902 pillow.
She dyes them herself to resemble vintage feed sacks.
The color comes out beautiful.
I think Ness does an excellent job dyeing her pillows. If you notice in this bottom photo, that is a picture of a grain sack from the 1880s
Can a girl ever have too many pillows?
I don’t think so!
Speaking of grain sacks…
I don’t think you could ever have enough of these either.
They are one of my favorite things to accessorize my home with.
I discovered grain sacks about 7 years ago.
I have been hooked ever since.
You can use them for everything.
The list could go on forever……
For now I will share with you how I use them in our bedroom.
This photo and the above photo were shot looking into a mirror in my bedroom.
Not only can grain sacks be used to make beautiful pillows,
but they can be used as a runner for the edge of the bed.
The bed below is done up with mostly vintage linens.
My sisters made all of my pillows.
I am so lucky to have sisters who will sew for me!
So to soften it,
I added a vintage monogram sheet.
Then I put a grain sack on the end of the bed.
Then to add a little bit of dimension I added a cotton throw, that has a modest ruffle.
Then to top it off a french basket full of lavender pillows, to the foot of the bed.
I have a real collection of lavender pillows, my sister made all of them.
I have had those lavender pillows for over 4 years and they still are just as fragrant as the
day we made them.
My bedskirt I have on this bed is also from Anthropolgie . This bedding is a bit modern,
however I love the mix of modern and vintage linens.
Thank you Ness for asking me to guest post on your beautiful blog.
You are such a talented girl, and it was a real honor to be here.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
Thanks again Maria. You know how much I love your house and I could just curl up in that bed with all of your vintage pillows. It would have been the perfect spot for me to recover! Thanks for showing us your room. You are a sweetie.
I will be back on board tomorrow for posting as usual…Ness xx
