L.L. Bean's home catalog arrived in the mail today. It features this cute, patriotic room on its cover. I'm a sucker for red, white and blue, and if you toss in an anchor, you've got me hooked. So, at first glance, I loved this scenario. But then, a closer inspection revealed a subtle pattern. Is that a tiny whale embroidered into the sheets? Oh my, yes it is! A whale percale! L.L. Bean, I love you for this.
