Ralph Lauren Cossette Floral

Everything I know about bedding, I learned from Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein

Truthfully, I began selling bedding online 13 years ago when bedding was crafted from gorgeous 280 thread count Egyptian Cotton Sateens like Jardiniere, or Guinevere, or Lambert Stripe, or Stone Harbor.

Tommy Hilfiger had Meadowcroft, a stunning Navy Blue that I still see occasionally on some Hollywood movie of yesteryear. I don’t think Calvin Klein has a had another blockbuster Bedding Collection that could beat Bamboo Flower or Anemone.

Ahh, Anemone, with that large floral in perfect lavender on a bluish lavender background. I couldn’t find enough fabric to make all the shams in-demand by that great collection.

While you’re visiting a few collections, I’ll share some stories from those early days that you might like to hear–

Welcome! Hope you browse awhile–

Pretty Print Dishes for the Holiday…or not

I’ve always loved Print Dishes, whether they be florals, paisleys, stripes or swirls. I don’t think I’ve ever had a solid color dish in my house. I love interesting colors and patterns. Ahhh… I should have been an artist. Don’t think that would work because I have no talent in that vein.

But I do love floral plates and platters and cups and saucers. While shopping for more pretty china for the Holiday, I came upon these pretty dishes. Holiday or not– I have to share them.  [Read more…]

The temperatures are dropping and this morning it was chilly here, in the Desert Southwest. Hubby is on the roof disconnecting the swamp cooler so we can fill the house with heat and it will stay inside rather than escape through the cooler. brrrrrrr

I still have light-weight, sateen sheets on our bed and wished I’d had flannel, or better yet WOOL! The water cooler was still on and we awoke to the North Pole in our house.

I’ve seen some lovely bedding sets in all the years I’ve sold bedding on Ebay and a few other Auction Sites.

But I don’t believe I’ve seen any quite as stunning as these sets
by DIAIDI ~~ They are gorgeous and the fabric content sounds like a well made bedset!

I haven’t seen these in person so I can’t attest to all the gorgeous colors and the unique 3-D appearance, but can’t believe they’d be allowed to advertise on Amazon without some sort of approval.

If you’ve owned one of these sets, I’d love to have an Authentic  Review for my readers! Contact me!

I wish I needed a new Bedroom Set, because I’d love to try it myself.  I’ve never had a Bedroom that looked as much like an Oil Painting as this.

What do you think? Let me know!
