food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly
hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the
time for home."
~Diane Edith Sitwell (1887-1964)
Anyone who knows me well knows how much I love home and everything to do with it. I love eating dinner as a family, I love sitting in the family room in the evening with a book or a movie, I love coming home after a holiday and the way that everything seems new, I love being surrounded by small treasures collected and loved over the years, I love the quiet corners and the places that reverberate with happy noise, I love the memories that seep into the walls of every room and make home the most beautiful place in the world. I also love the comfort of home and I adore crawling into my bed at night and falling asleep. My cousin sent me a message recently with a link enclosed for Bella Notte Linens. She wrote in the message that every time she looked through their catalogue the photos made her think of me! I of course immediately went to the site to have a peek and what I found is the most gorgeous line of bedding in the entire world! Every piece of linen and lace - every pillow, robe, quilt, and coverlet is absolutely beautiful! No matter what your taste or style is you will find something at Bella Notte to make you swoon. I'm sure that Bella Notte is well known to many of you but I was so entranced by their beautiful photos I had to share some with you in case you have never heard of them! Here are my favorite pictures from their online album (access through their site) showcasing items from this year's collection as well as from two and three years ago. I hope you will visit - you will not be disappointed! I have also done a little sketch in honor of their beautiful linens. Enjoy!
