New Bed!

As I type this, I am lounging on my new bed.  Well, techincally it's not a new bed, only new bedding, but feels like a new bed.  I wanted something super fluffy and soft and I'm halfway there.  I also wanted something to coordinate with my super cool framed print hanging over my bed (framed by yours truely).  I found a great deal on a 500 thread count down comforter at TJ Maxx for $50.  500 thread count!  Down comforter!  I couldn't find a duvet cover that I liked at a price I was comfortable with and I can't have a bare white dry clean only item on my bed with two cats in the house so I found a micro fleece grey blanket for $23 at Target to cover the whole bed.  Man is it cozy!  I also found a couple of decorative pillows (filled with feathers) on clearance at Target for 10 bucks each.  The other half of my bed make over will include the perfect duvet cover, a set of new sheets and a feather bed/matress cover.

I think that Chai approves of the progress so far.

I love it.  Feels like a grown up bed.

Today I also took some recycling to the center and dropped off some items to the Salvation Army.  Looking forward to ringing in the new year free of old stuff.
