Organic Cotton Bedding – Sassy!

I am completely smitten by this amazing vibrant collection of 100% organic cotton bedding by Amy Butler – she is amazing. And when I say bedding I mean it all – Shams, 400 thread count sheets, Euro Shams, Boudoir pillows (seen below), bed skirts, coverlets and decorative pillows. She uses low-impact dyes that retain their colour, the prices are unbelievably low for the quality and the level of design. This is the whole package folks -Laura Ashley eat your heart out!


This particular collection (one of several to choose from in a plethora eye popping colours) is called “The Dancing Paisley”. She say it’s  “combinations of graceful, fresh paisleys, dainty flowers and large waving leaves in emerald, lime & turquoise that feels like the softest wind blowing through the garden.”
This amazing  Amy Butler Queen Duvet is only $99 US.

I’ve spent a fortune over the years on organic cotton sheets, all the things that touch the skin and look oh so pretty every morning after I make the bed but then again in shambles after my two rascals get in it. I’ve always put off buying a mattress protector mainly because of the cost and I also thought it was not absolutely necessary since I do have an organic cotton mattress and a mattress pad. Lately however I’ve been waking up a bit stuffy and my eyes slightly puffy and a bit sore.  I’ve been putting it down to shear tiredness (being a mom of 2 boys) but I’ve just finished reading the symptoms of dust mites in your bed and they match my symptoms to the letter!!

Dust Mites – the low down.
Dust mites are invisible to the naked eye but there are millions of them living in your mattress and pillows, stuffed animals, clothing, blankets. If not attended to they can contribute greatly to asthma.

Solutions for Dust Mites:
Wash all bedding every 3 to 7 days in the hottest possible water and use a mattress cover and pillow case covers.

Choosing a Mattress Cover:
