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.

But anyway.

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.


  1. That stitching is gorgeous! I wish all the Marshalls had the same stuff, I would so be there right now! Put the Target duvet set out of your head, $60 is a great deal for something you are going to be using for a long time. Can't wait to see what you decide to do with colors.

  2. Ok, you are right. =) I will stop beating myself over the target duvet.

  3. Hello, my fellow kindred spirit! I love reading your blog and your comments on mine! You are a sweetie! I love the view in your room.

  4. Kristi- I love reading your blog too, thanks for being so encouraging!

  5. What a deal on the sweater! And really, the bedspread isn't a terrible price. You probably ended up with a better quality spread than the cheaper one at Target. (Not that I'm hating on Target. I love Target!)
