Ascending Butterfly Holidays Buying Guide 2010, Eleventh Giveaway sponsored by:

Even my inner frugalista allows me certain 'luxurious necessities'. I absolutely love high thread count sheets! That doesn't mean I don't do my homework to find the best possible quality at the best possible price. But the higher the thread count, the more I swoon. I like to make my bed an Oasis. And the more welcoming, inviting and comfortable it is, the happier I am.

The words Egyptian Cotton and a thread count of 1,000 or more make we weak in the knees. When I hold that package in my hand I think of the cozy nights, sweet dreams and the promises of deep sleep that 'lie' ahead. (No pun intended, but I just couldn't resist!). What chocolate does for some, sheets do for me! (That doesn't mean I don't like truffles on Valentine's Day!)

My grandmother was very discerning with her sheets, and I learned from her that good sheets, don't PILL, won't tear, and wash like new time and time again. And that's exactly what I've come to expect. I absolutely hate cheapo sheets that pill after coming out the wash!

Tips for Buying Sheets!

Size counts! - Check the Measurements of BOTH your bed and the sheet set you are interested in, remember from manufacturer to manufacturer there are some differences in bed sizes, some beds are a little wider from brand to brand and others are longer, you need to know your exact size before you purchase your new sheets.

What Feel Works For You? - Remember you will spend 8 hours per day or more on your sheets, feel counts. A great way to experiment with finding the feel that is right for you, is to purchase pillowcases in various types to see which one works best for you.

Shrinkage - Many sheets will shrink as much as 7% in the first washing. That's why measuring is so important!

Valentino, it was love at first sight!

For those who desire the finest linens the world has to offer! This Italian import is pure elegance plain and simple. The Valentino collection is made from the finest 100% ELS (Extra Long Staple) Mercerized Egyptian cotton. Woven to a luxurious 1200 Thread Count the result is a feel that's cool, crisp, and heavenly soft.

These sheets were featured on HGTV's "Home Rules" and for good reason!

Here is how they arrived:

The sheets arrived in Luxor Linen's signature packaging, with a custom monogram! I chose my initials! I can't stress enough how much I love this sheet set, the egyptian cotton provides an un-rivaled level of comfort, they have washed quite well and while they are not my first set in the 1,000 thread count range, they are my first 1,200 and they are the first set to arrive in such lovely packaging! And the custom monogram makes a wonderful detail as a personalized, and very memorable gift! These sheets are certainly a great gift for anyone, anytime, but will definitely make a impression under the tree! And even that person on your list who has everything, will very much be pleased with this set!
