When I wasn't looking ....
Don't you hate it when a tried-n-true product quietly disappears?
Over at L.A.H.S. I attended my share of Home Ec classes -- but never quite grasped the art of becoming an honest-to-goodness Homemaker. Now, I truly admire those whose homes sparkle 24/7 and whose tablescapes change with the seasons .... but "it ain't me, babe."
Aside from the kitchen and bathrooms, were it not for the occasional visitor, the rest of our house might not pass the white glove test on any given Tuesday.
Yes, the occasional visitor! When changing the guest-room bedding last month, I found myself marveling at the sweet feel of those sheets. Despite their old-age, I was impressed enough to go grab a magnifying glass and examine the manufacture tag. Dan River percale.
Hmmm. I need these for the master!
Unfortunately, old man River seems to have faded into obscurity ... taking Lady Pepperell with him. I still enjoy using some of my mother's wonderfully-made Pepperell towels -- but their appearance(!) forbids their going out in public.
Save for a few listings on eBay, it appears Dan River and Lady Pepperell bid their farewells when I wasn't paying attention.
If anyone has a lead on their whereabouts, I'd sure appreciate it!
If not, might anyone recommend like-kind brands -- which don't require a lot of TLC?
