New Bed Linens/ Old Bed Linens
I have always been somewhat of a self-professed quilt wh0#e. I am always finding new quilts that I love, but alas I don't often act on my urges. Usually I just love them from afar and sometimes go and visit them in the store. Do you ever do that? Stalk things that you love until someone else buys them and you know they have found a loving home with someone as tasteful as yourself ;)
Sometime last year I fell out of love with my winter quilt ( of course I have a summer quilt too, I know you understand!). I still liked it, but I wanted something moodier, more bohemian, maybe something with more browns and subdued colors. Enter this fall's PB catalog. I spotted the Gianna scalloped quilt and just had to seek her out and see if she was as lovely in person as she was in the catalog. She didn't disappoint. So, since I had a 10% coupon from PB. com, which basically covers the shipping I sent my order for quilt and one decorative sham off into cyberspace. Yesterday she arrived and I am still tweaking. I got the off white chenille shams at Christmas Tree Shop for $2.49 each and like the textural contrast. At PB they had the bed made up with off white pick stitched shams, mine look similar for a lot less. I have a white duvet cover for the down comforter (that resides at the bottom of the bed in colder months) which I hope to dye a camel color or dark Khaki. Maybe a brown throw for the off white slipcovered chair. I'm lovin' it!
Now, I would like to sell my old "Providence" pattern quilt which is currently available at PB. I have the full/queen quilt and two Euro shams. They are used but in very good condition. I have listed them on Craigs List for $95 for the set, but thought one of my readers might be interested as well. Here is the pic from PB.
I have decided to take the "blogging without obligation" pledge and when I have something to say that might be of interest to anyone, I will post. How's that for a compromise?
