Not in the mood to get it on? Say it with sheets! These Screw Me, Silly/Dream On . . . Pillowcases ($24) from Etsy seller Crumbsonthesheets use fancy embroidery to communicate your true desires. I love that "screw me, silly" could be read as "screw me silly" without the comma. Either way, some nights, sleep wins.
My mom recently gave me these embroidered pillowcases. I have a special place in my heart for embroidered pillowcases, since my mother and aunties are great embroiderers. Do you have embroidered pillowcases in your home?

When it comes to carting home candy, children have a lot of options — plastic bags and containers, even noise-making plush handled pumpkins or cardboard carriers. But for moms and dads that want to save money and have their wee ones get more mileage out of their treat sacks, use pillowcases. They hold more trinkets and sweets than the other options and can be slipped under your tot's head to lull them to sleep.
John Robshaw, who uses traditional printing, dying and weaving techniques to create his beautiful textiles, just opened an online storefront. I've seen his wonderful rouge floral quilts everywhere lately, including on Design*Sponge's bed. His e-commerce site sells bedding, duvets, shams, quilts, throws, pillows, pillowcases, sheets, tablecloths, crib sets, and even clothing. The inventory is still in its pre-order phase now, but most items are expected to ship by next week. I personally would love to have one of his patterned throw pillows for my solid-colored sofa. Wish list!
