One of the things I've been able to mark as "done" was finding a new bedspread for our master bedroom. I mentioned the situation to you guys here and showed you some options I had in mind. Well as luck would have it, I found one this weekend! TJMaxx/HomeGoods is typically one of the spots my mom and I always hit up whenever she comes into town. And since it was my sister's first time to visit what I refer to as "heaven on Earth" down here, there was definitely no way around it.
While my mom and sister were shopping in the bath section, I decided to check out the bedspreads to see what they had to offer. Much to my surprise they had one of the bedspreads on my list! It was the first listed on the above mentioned post. But the happy moment ended quickly when I realized it looked much better, and more importantly brighter, online than it did in person. A little deflated, I continued to look at what else they had and ended up finding one I liked even better! And at $59.99, it was also cheaper than any option I'd found online. HomeGoods strikes again! It's a square patterned coverlet by a company called Locama Home Textiles. I tried to see if I could find a link to it online for you guys online, but no luck.
The subtle pattern is just what I wanted, and I think it works well with my other pillows.
The weight is just right too. Not too heavy, like a quilt might be, but still offering enough warmth to compensate for the two fans I have going every night :)
I kept the old duvet folded up at the end of the bed so that it's within reach if I do want some more cover, although I don't think that will happen any time soon with this Florida heat.
In the end, I think I got really lucky with this find, especially since it was the only one in the store. Now I can sleep in peace, a nice cool peace :)
On a side note, I have to share a few cute photos from this weekend. My nephew Cohen came for a visit, so of course loads of picture taking ensued. Here are some of my favorite shots of the little guy.
Look at those feet! He is SUCH a happy baby!
He gets to use the frog towel when he comes to visit Aunt Mallie.
I think he's a fan of my bed too :)
The cutest beach bum I've ever seen :)
I hope you all had a wonderful, long weekend and also took some time to remember why we had it in the first place. A big thanks goes out to my hubby and all of the other men and women who have given their lives or are currently risking them to ensure our freedom.
