Tattle Tale Tuesday

Today's tattle tale is about Mom. Mom has a fetish. Actually, mom has 2 fetishes. The first is post it notes. Mom LOVES colored post it notes. Absolutely loves them. She buys her own set of all the wild colors and keeps them hidden in the back of her desk so no one "borrows" them. Mom's co-worker knows that to touch these is a "hanging offense." Ha ha See, here they are.

The other fetish mom has is sheets! Mom LOVES colored sheets. The brighter the better.


These two are Isaac Mizrahi sheets that mom bought at Tar-get. They are nice and crisp to sleep on. (300 thread count)

These are mom's two favorite sets of sheets.


This set mom found in Massachusetts. They did not have the queen set at mom's store here in town.

This is mom's least favorite set. They are okay.


Mom bought these because they are "retro". Auntie doesn't like them because they are retro. Mom thinks Auntie is funny.

This is the set mom found at Linen's N Things on Thursday, shopping with Auntie. They had this and a green set. Maybe mom should have bought the green set, as now she has three sets of blue sheets, but she couldn't decide at the time. Auntie thinks mom is crazy to have 6 sets of sheets. Mom told the people at work that and mom's co-worker has 9 sets and her boss has 8 sets. Mom doesn't feel so bad now.

How many sets of sheets do your beans have?

We just have boring sheets - no sense talking about them. ;-)

But my mom has a thing for post-it notes also. She loves the ones that come in different shades of yellow and orange!

Those are great-looking, colourful sheets! :)

We think our humans have four sets of sheets, but they are all boring - just plain blue in colour.

I think MomBean has three sets and the little beans have 2 sets each.

Are you going to do the Q? :)

As far as fetishes go, pretty tame!

And I love the new "retro" set!!! Far out, baby!

Rachel said...

hmmm...I find myself pretty boring in this department. We have TWO sets of sheets - both white. One has a damask embossed type pattern and one is the hotel collection from Crate and Barrel with the black piping around the edges. What I do have a passion for is THROW PILLOWS!! Maybe I should take pictures of all my pillows...hmmmmm....

Roxy,
Your mom is the coolest. I love that she collects post it notes and sheets. I am lost for hours in office supply stores and stores like tj maxx and linens and things because i wander around touching all of the cool supplies and sheet sets. When Fred comes with me, he just knows I will be doing that and to be patient. He looks for olive oil when I am shopping. :)
We have 3 sheet sets. One of them is the exact bright pink IM striped set that you have! I need more sheets!

I think your Mom has more sheets than anyone I know - possibly more than everyone I know put together. My People have two sets of sheets, but they just use one of them. Woman says they were expensive sheets, so they just wash them often and put them back on the bed.

I have bright blue, bright purple (both match a striped duvet set), baby blue, beige (and these two match another duvet set!) and chocolate brown (to match the 3rd duvet set) and I want more!! I love the striped sets but the problem with me is, I love the matching duvet or quilt that goes with it! lol

I love colored stickie notes too! I have hot pink, orange and green!!

Momma has a thing for post-it notes, too. She works with all guys so she always has wild color ones so that no one uses them.

We like the pink and orange stripey sheets. They are very very cool!

Love,
Tazo
