Of bedsheets, of being in bed and fabrics

This is is the place I love every monday morning...every morning in fact, since winter quietly settled in....Yes, my bed !

If you ever visit Andalusia in winter and stay in a rural or traditional house, you will love the sunny hours in the morning but you will also discover that calefacion (heating) is most often non existent and this can be a drawback. I've got used to it now and do as people do here, keeping warm with a portable gas heater and a small electrical one in the bathroom. A friend made me laugh the other day, she was just coming back from a quick trip to France and didn't feel like coming back because all the places she went to had central heating and she just hated the idea of going back to her big cold house.

at least there is sunshine in my bedroom in the morning so it gives me the kick I need to get up, otherwise believe me comes 11 and you will still find me in my bed like a marquise waiting in vain for her chocolat.... This reminds me of a very interesting document I saw on Arte, a long time ago, about people who just love their bed and enjoy an horizontal life. Most of the people interviewed lived in Germany and had a busy professional life. I specifically remember this family who had an enormous Chinese bed in their living room where they watched TV, read, invited friends to have tea and chat and had dinner sometimes. This lifestyle is quite tempting to me but I would be afraid to turn rapidly into a fat loukoum. And to be honest, because I'm convinced, I'm a naturally born lazy person so in order to compensate, I want to be busy and make things all the time.

Last saturday, I took my friend Lyn to Tejidos Alberto, surely the best fabric shop in Granada and got some embroidered tulle and heavy dupion silk to make more collars.

I thought you would like to see the work in progress...
I like sewing while watching a movie. We saw Gosford Park this week end, I had tea and petits choux à la crème, Monchéri had beer and crisps. I kept being nervous all the time, he'd spill his beer on the expensive silk and in the end, it's me who dropped some cream on my work but no harm done.

I think I made a new friend at the fabric shop, señor Antonio. He gave me the exact composition of each fabric I bought, the pleated one is 100% silk. I love its paper wrapping which keeps it permanently pleated. Then, there is a very heavy ivory silk called mikado. I couldn't resist the embroidered ivory tulle. I only bought 25 cms of each as I don't need much material to make collars still they are very expensive fabrics but so beautiful. El señor Antonio was intrigued and asked me : ¿pero, que vas a hacer con todo eso? I told him, I'd show him when I'm finished. Actually next time, I'll take my camera with me and take a photo of el señor Antonio. I think you'll like him too and the shop of course.



would you say I'm in a bridal mood ?

ps: as we came out of the shop, I was so excited to possess all these ethereal beauties (I love fabrics to death you see), I told Lyn : know what ? this is even better than sex ! To which she answered, if they only they knew !

OHHH heavenly gorgeous! I would DIE in that shop! Lovely choices.
When I lived without heat in London I carried a hot water bottle everywhere. If I did not have one I would carry a soda bottle full of hot tea, available at any corner shop. You are lucky to have glorious sunshine! Sunshine suits you!

The fabrics are so beautiful.

I like the idea of a gigantic bed in the center of the living room!

Love Gosford Park and its music, too. Isn't Maggie Smith a stitch?

Such wonderful fabrics!
Such a wonderful bed!
I went up to the fabric district in New York today and bought some luscious velvet to cover the day bed.
I wanted to buy the contents of the shop.

Lalita that is my weakness textiles. I love your sheets, anyone would hate to leave such lovely bed. As for calecfacion, I cannot stand it. While I lived in Madrid I would not use it. My friends thought I was crazy. But I hate walking into an artificially heated room. I love your choice of fabric for your ruffs.

What is the homepage of this shop?
I want some Spanish bedsheets for my little feria house in Spain but do not get them in our area since it all seems to be global (chinese) sh..

These are so beautiful! I love them Lala! The colors, combinations . . . everything.

I have just found out about a wonderful ribbon shop here (I love ribbon, as I'm sure you could tell ;-) and can't wait to go get some more trims. I want some pale, pale pearl-grey violet ribbon . . .

Relyn said...

Not sure about the sex part, but they are lovely fabrics. Really, really gorgeous. I can hardly wait to see them finished. You create such beauty.

A Cuban In London said...

Yes, I noticed that the first time I went to Granada, no heating. Your bed looks gorgeous. Beautiful post.

Greetings from London.

What beautiful silks and laces!

Your bed sounds warm and cozy!

Sara said...

Wow, Lala, this post is pure poetry...delicious and sensual and beautiful....I am right there with you as you describe and show us those incredible fabrics!

Little by little in the U.S. we keep losing fabric stores and it is so sad to me. In our area we do have decorator textile shops but for clothing we have 2 chain stores that carry middle to low end fabrics. It's just not the same. You are so lucky to have access to such a shop.

When we were young the velvet manufacturer was just an hour away and we could purchase the fabric at amazingly low prices. It was so warm to have a velveteen robe during the winter. For warmth, a velveteen robe is all you need.
