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–

Stunning 3-D Duvet Bedding Sets by DIAIDI

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!

Warm and Comfy Snuggle Throws and Winter Wraps

Comfy Winter Wraps and Throws

When fall was in the “air, my dad use to say this air is “nippy;” Or, “do you feel that nip in the air?”

I wasn’t quite sure what “nip” meant according to Merriam Webster  (or Google if that’s your dictionary of choice as it is mine) but to my Dad it meant winter was coming. In hindsight, I think the “nip” he felt was actually Fall. Dad saw the seasons through Oklahoma eyes, though we’d lived in the desert for many many years.

In the Desert Southwest, seasons flow one into the other with little flair or ado. We don’t trade winter garb for summer suits but wear shorts all year round.

There are no leaves changing colors and floating into a pile of crunchy fun for the little ones. No back-breaking work of raking and bagging or burning them, either. I love that time of year though I don’t get to enjoy it like my father did when he was a young  child in Oklahoma or some folks do in other parts of the country. [Read more...]

A New Setting for the Table this Holiday Season

Square-dinner-ware

I never think much about Dinnerware, Flatware or Silverware until there’s an Holiday on the horizon. Then I fuss and worry and wonder why I haven’t updated all my dining and dinnerware utensils during the last 20 years.

Once retired, it’s a pleasurable meal when I’ve convinced hubby to use Paper Plates.

When I had young children, the spoons always mysteriously disappeared. Of course I realized where they’d gone when we removed the backyard sand-box and found 38 serving spoons buried alive.

Hubby would never admit to it, (so don’t tell him I told you) but it isn’t unusual to find a stash of  good steak knives in his toolbox. [Read more...]
