A Blank Page
I'm happy to say that, despite my Decorating ADD, the bedroom re-design project is coming along swimmingly. One of the first things on my checklist was to find a new, white bedspread.
I wish I could say that I searched high and low for this one, but it pretty much fell into my lap. Or, fell from a shelf onto my head as I was reaching for it at Marshalls.
I really love the crisp, white color and the bonus adorable stitching. Here's a close up so you can see a little better:
See? Cute as all get out. Now I really feel like the "Blank Canvas" is just waiting for a beautiful infusion of color. I am itching to get sewing!
I must share though, that this was not one of my proudest "thrifty" moments. I bought the bedspread from Marshalls for around $60 (good deal, right? Think again...), and then yesterday I happened upon an entire duvet set for only $24.99 at good ol' Tarjay. Seriously? It definitely made my heart a little sad. Just goes to show you that it's always best to shop around!
I feel it pertinent to note though, that I did make up for this lack in thriftiness by scoring a 100% cashmere sweater for $4.99 at GW the next day. Phew.
