Chic Duvets Under $100?!

Thursday, July 22, 2010

I’m a firm believer that nothing can give you bigger bang for your decorating buck than paint and fabric. As a result I’m always on the lookout for inexpensive curtains, pillows, bedding, etc…and I’m constantly painting and re-painting rooms…but I digress.

So imagine my glee (yes, I said “glee”), when I stumbled upon several super cute duvet covers for under $100. Let’s have a look see…

Clover Duvet Cover – F/Q $59


Organic Carved Circles Duvet – F/Q $79


Organic Imperial Duvet – F/Q $79


Winter Berry Duvet – F/Q $59

See what I mean? Happy shopping!

Our Suburban Traveler

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

Hi kids – I thought I’d share some pix from my recent travels with you. I went to Amsterdam for work – yes…Amsterdam…as in The Netherlands. I promise you the experience was far less glamorous than it sounds – but I was grateful to be able to go nonetheless.

I was shocked to discover that they force you to wear wooden shoes there,


but I quickly adjusted once I found out there were at least more size appropriate options (I know…I’m hilarious) :).


But seriously, Amsterdam is a seriously gorgeous city. Here are a few pix for your viewing pleasure. Isn’t the architecture amazing?!

Amsterdam 1


I had a free day the last day I was there, and I was able to get out to the countryside where I saw some seriously fantastic windmills. Like…seriously.




Aww, see the ducks?


And I knew only YOU would appreciate the beautiful of this bicycle. The lettering, the basket, it’s state of casual repose….Perfection.



(that’s goodbye in Dutch – although I’m not saying “goodbye” goodbye…just “until next time”)
