A Glittering Sunday Selections

This is a blingy sort of post and the headline perhaps oversells the post as being bigger and better than what it is. I bet River's Sunday Selections is more sensible and interesting though less glitzy.

What is with all this glittery soft furnishings in our large department store? Is it fashionable? Or is about to be fashionable? Looks scratchy to me. I'll pass.





Snoskred was unwell and we haven't seen nor heard from her for a time. I hope things are ok with her and just in case she sees this post, here are some pineapples for her. Apparently pineapples are addictive, as R told me I have looked at pineapples before. I don't remember, but I do blame Snoskred if I have looked at pineapples in the past. I seem to recall she paid about $6 for one. These in sparkling black, gold and silver in a small shop were marked $29 each. Now which is rough end of the pineapple?

  1. I agree with you about the blingy bed linen. Nup. Beds should be comfortable. Like shoes. Another age thing I suppose...

    1. EC, comfort is a priority for both. Oddly or not, this becomes increasingly important as the years march on.

    2. Age has nothing to do with it, beds should be comfortable. Comfort trumps style every time.

  2. Yep pineapples are all the GO as are foxes I have noticed. I am not into either but glad to see someone else snaps pics when they are out shopping.

    1. Foxes hey Carol. I will need to keep a lookout for them. Quite a lot of my photo snapping is just for blog fodder.

  4. Those are some fancy pineapples, but the glittery bedding I can do without.

    1. Strayer, I suppose some people might like the glitz but it really is not practical.

  5. Both ends of the pineapple are rough.
    And glitter and scratchy stuff on bedclothes not nice at all.

    1. Merle, I remember my mother making me wear woolen pants once and I hated them because they prickled. I can't stand anything like that.

  6. I love the pineapples, of course. ;)

    I am doing a lot better, just trying to get a routine happening at the moment. I will try to write a post this week! ;)

  7. When I read your title, I thought you were going to be showing Christmas decorations. I don't like the idea of glittery bedlinens, not at all. I don't even like shiny satin for bedlinens. I do like silk though and have a (cheap) patchwork silk quilt. It's covered by a crappy cheap quilt though, because Angel sleeps and drools on the bed and I don't want the silk ruined.
    I like the pineapples and I've thought of getting one, but I don't think it would sit well with everything else I have; you know, the mish-mash of assorted, unrelated 'stuff'.

    1. River, one of our cats, Thomas, was a shocking drooler. Any sign of a stroke and away he would go. No, I can't imagine a glitzy pineapple in your place.

  8. I'm so cheap I look for a doona that I can turn over to use both sides. My cat wouldn't touch a cheap cover but would shred a glittery one to ribbons. The last one I bought I hated sleeping under it so much I took it to pieces and cut a dress out of it, waste not, want not.
    Pineapples were a symbol of wealth, usual reason, only the wealthy could afford them and in America they are often on gate posts as a symbol of welcome.

    1. Jah Teh, as I am so hot, I still haven't used the doona this year, just a doubled sheet. The dress must be interesting. Yes, pineapples are featured in building entrances etc.

  9. Pineapples seem to be a common subject for home furnishings, perhaps more so than any other fruit. I wonder why??

    1. Ad Rad, I suppose they are rather an unusual fruit. Read Jah Teh's comment above and realise that they have history.

  10. The pineapple looks looks ok, but I wouldn't choose one for my house. Don't care for glitter fabrics, too uncomfortable I expect when leaning/laying on..

    1. Quite so Margaret. I just think of sequins and sandpaper.

  11. If the colours are mainly earth, beach or watery tones, they are pretty neutral. In such a room there would be nothing wrong with jazzing it all up with some glitz and glitter. The bed looks super.

    1. Hels, always a sale at Myer if you are thinking of glitzing up your bedroom. Just pull it down before getting into bed.
