LOVE IT WHEN A PLAN COMES TOGETHER!


For several months I've had a plan for some new Spring/Summer bedding.  I've had my old comforters for years and wanted a change.  Looked on line for a white cotton duvet, and saw the price was more than I was willing to pay.  Then on a trip to Sun Thrift, I saw hanging in the back of the quilts and blankets, what looked like a white cotton duvet. I unfolded it, and spread it out as best I could and found the label.  It was a good brand and "Queen" size.  Had one mark which was dirt and I knew would come out with a washing.  Price $9.99.

Needless to say I was excited and strolled over to the sheet section, and found a "queen" white dust ruffle ~ Price $1.99.  Perfect condition.


This morning went to Walmart and found the blue floral sheets and pillowcases.  I wanted white or blue shams but they didn't have what I needed, so I bought "King" pillowcases and tied them with ribbon and like it even better.


I love it when a plan comes together, and I couldn't be happier with my new Spring/Summer look!

Sweet dreams, and a blessed Sunday.

    1. Patience is the name of the game. I've had my thoughts for this look for months. So glad it came together at less that half the price.

    1. Sue, years of small churches, small salaries, and 4 kids, really made me a Thrifty Shopper. I've done it for years and our home has never LOOKED like a Thrift Shop. Sun Thrift is the best ever.

  8. That is just perfect! I don't know how many times I've looked for something specific at the thrift store and it was there. It's like a little reward for trying to be wise and frugal! Your made is made up beautifully and says spring!

    I usually take off our flannel sheets on May 1st....it will be here soon!

    1. That's how I felt when I saw some white hiding behind a bunch of quilts and blankets. It was like a reward..and the dust ruffle on the same trip. I was feeling lucky...HaHa

  9. sometimes everything just clicks and it sure did for you!! It looks lovely!!! I love the blue, so soft and calming,, I have a white quilt on our bed and when our grand daughter comes I have to take it off, lol, she is notorious for running to Nana's bed with a chocolate or pizza face, she loves to pretend she's sleeping under the covers,, so its like musical chairs with my quilt, on and off the bed, lol,
