Linens part 2 by Victoria
I did want to clarify a few things from my linens post the other day.
1) The coverlet that I picked up out of the "trash" was in a very nice neighborhood and I actually know the very clean lady that lives in the house. Just wanted to make sure you all know I'm not picking up nasty things out of the garbage and putting them on my bed. :)
2) My Goodwill doesn't typically have a lot of great items but after a dr's appt in a different part of town, I found a GW and they had all sorts of really great things. I have found, as many of you have, that you have to go often (weekly usually) and I check the linen bin each time I go. Most days I come away with nothing but sometimes I strike gold!
After my Dr appt I found this lovely pillow sham to use in my Sweet Girl's room. Again, hot water and I felt like it was good to go!
It added some interest and broke up the matchy matchy I had going on in here.
Now, I have always steered clear of pillows from GW because HOW do you wash them (unless of course they have a zipper cover)? I recently broke away from this trend when I spotted two of these darling round blue pillows and they were 1/2 off! What I did was look them over really well and sniff them. They looked extremely clean and smelled good and so I bought them. I put them in the dryer and also put them out in the sun for a couple of days before bringing them in.
I had to throw in a shot of the "spring" banner I bought at GW. It has lots of luscious glitter and the colors go perfectly in Sweet Girl's room! It was originally from Target and $9.99. I think I did pay $2.52 for it.
If anyone ever spies a little "George Monkey" in his pj's we need another one!!!!! I'll gladly pay you for it and shipping.
I love this room and the fact that most of her bedding was bought on clearance at Target as they discontinued this part of their Shabby Chic line. I had help from lots of family members who spied things on clearance at their Targets and picked up items for me. To see more of Sweet Girl's room and how the bedding has evolved go here. For part one go here.
