I am on the serious countdown to warmth and Mickey now, but thought I would share a great "stumble upon".
If you recall, last summer I bought a new duvet and duvet cover. In the end, I settled for a gorgeous white linen cover from Pottery Barn. But we have a third companion in our bed and sometimes he has mucky prints, despite our best efforts, so most of the time the duvet cover is further covered with another blanket.
I decided that in an ideal world, I would have a second duvet cover and save the white for the warmer and dryer months - May to October. Plus it's always nice to have an alternate when you are laundering the other.
However, I decided to wait and look this summer, or at least wait until after our trip.
Off I trotted last weekend to Target. Our Target only opened in November. Prior to that, I had to go to Maine to shop at Target.
Since it is newly opened, I think I've maybe been in the store twice, since I just haven't been shopping at all. But I was in search of rain ponchos (which they did NOT have so guess I will try WallyMart this weekend) so I stopped in to see if I could get them there.
As I wandered around, I ended up in the bedding section. Imagine my delight when I literally stumbled over a queen size duvet cover and shams set by shabby chic, 100% cotton, for $24 in a clearance bin. Nothing wrong with them, just last season's bedding that they were trying to move before the new stuff comes in.
The floral pattern and colour caught my eye, since of course all I have is snow. If you need snow, by all means call me - I can ship it at excellent rates. So into my cart the set fell and then onto my bed at home:
I guess I may be one of the last non-Target shoppers, but I must say I am impressed with the quality of this line. So if I never get another deal to equal that I will not complain, because a $23 duvet cover set is kind of highway robbery and I sort of ran from the store in case they caught up with me...
Have a great day and stay safe out there!
