This week we got new bedding… ah… I’m a happy girl.
Do you rejoice when you get a new set of sheets or a snazzy new comforter? I have a long history of changing up my bedding…
A set with winter colors and winter weight is always important…
And then when spring rolls around it’s time for a make-over to brighten the room!
And even though I absolutely adore that comforter (which I got for 50% off at Target), I was in the mood for a change when autumn rolled around.
Of course you can’t forget to dress your bed up for the holidays, red is always a good choice.
When I moved in with my husband only two of my comforters fit his gigantic California king bed. The first three shots above were taken at my apartment B.T. (before Tim).
Tim and I have worn out the red silk one you see above with Cooper and Jack on it. And we’ve had the poppy one (pic two) on the bed now for well over a year. We did indulge ourselves with two sets of high thread count sheets, but never bought a new comforter.
Last week the poppys pooped out. The thread keeping the stuffing in place disintegrated and when I took it out of the dryer it was all mangled. I had no hope that I would be able to find anything, even on-line, that would fit my budget, which was pretty much nothing.
And then the advertising on Facebook actually worked for once! I saw a bedding set on sale for $29? Really? It looked legit and the shipping was only $3 so I ordered it. I couldn’t believe it when it came and it was actually as advertised… I don’t know if I actually saved $121 like they say, but it is pretty awesome for $32.
It even works with my poppy pillowcases. I would have taken a picture of it when some of those wrinkles had smoothed out, but by then it would have all sorts of cat gak and dog hair on it so I took my shot when I could. All of you pet people know exactly what I mean.
So that is my random moment of delight for the week. Is it heavenly to sleep in? Absolutely! It’s even easy to throw off at three in the morning when I get one of those dreaded hot flashes. Big wink and a smile.
As always I welcome comments on this or any other part of my blog. I’d love to hear your random moments of delight.
