mission accomplished!

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,
super quality,
long lasting,
personality suiting

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.
