I have a little quirk in my personality
~I know, shocking! :) ~
call it determination...
call it a dog with a bone...
call it obsession....
(personally I like the first one the best!)
My little quirk is that when I get an idea for something I plan or need to purchase, I must MUST search high and low, left, right and centre for the perfect item.
Perfect for me means:
the absolute best priced,
This problem great affects me when it's time to purchase a new parka for my kids because then
most wind resistant,
a colour that won't show the dirt so fast,
get added to the criteria!
So several months ago I decided to buy a new bed spread for
myself my husband and I. It was over a year ago that I noticed where my quilt had become threadbare, but at the time, I wasn't ready.
(do you wonder if EVERYthing in my life is a really big deal??)
As my birthday approached, I decided that a new quilt would be a good gift for
me my husband to give me,
so the search intensified!
I've never searched so long and hard for anything...
not even a parka!
But today ~finally~ I found what I was looking for
(cut to U2 music)
creamy and heavily quilted coverlet with pretty damask sheets in lilac!
(thankfully my husband is very secure in his masculinity...)
I found the accent pillow first (love!) and it helped build "the look."
The best part is that my treasured afghan from my aunt fits perfectly!
Overall, the look is very B&B, I like to think!
And all those hours (and miles) spent on the hunt?
totally worth it.
