The Big Crash and New Bedding.

Hello everyone.
 I hope you had a great weekend.
I owe a big apology to those of you that dropped by last week for the Open House party. My laptop crashed on Tuesday evening and I just got it back from the shop yesterday.  Everything is back to normal and I hope to see you at the party this week.
 You know how much I like anything blue and white so you can imagine how deeply I feel in love with this comforter I found on Pinterest. The comforter cover was originally sold at Macy's and Saks Fifth Ave.  After seeing the price of $440 for just the comforter cover I knew my love would go unfulfilled....sigh!



  
Months later while browsing through Joss and Mann I saw the elusive comforter cover for sale.  At the price of $70 for a king I couldn't order it quick enough!  A search on EBay landed me the linen bed skirt at a fraction of the original price.  The bedding has been discontinued so I am still looking for the pillow shams.  I have a beautiful antique linen tablecloth that is the same soft blue color and I may have this made into shams.
When I received the bedding I was thrilled.  It is even more beautiful than pictured and the color is the prettiest shade of soft blue. 
I am so excited to be going home in March for the first time in seven months.  I am taking dad with me and we plan on being there for a few weeks.   Pictures of our bedroom with the new bedding will be posted then. 
Thanks for visiting and have a great week.
xx,
Sherry

The bedding is gorgeous. I so admire you for your dedication and love of your father, to leave your home and spend all this time taking care of him. I know it has been a Blessing for both of you, but I do know it has also been hard at times. God Bless. Hugs, Marty

That is such a bummer to have computer problems, I'm glad it got resolved. I love the color of the bedding, it's so feminine.

Everything about your blog is so elegant and classy! My own style is more country-casual, but reading your posts makes me feel as if I've picked up a very expensive magazine to browse through!
I'm delighted that you are a grandma too! Best wishes!

It must be a relief to go back home, even for a few weeks. I can't wait to see the new bedding, since I have blue in my mind lately. Thank you so much for following me.

Hi Sherry! What gorgeous bedding! I'm glad that you were able to find the comforter cover and bed skirt. I'm sure the shams will show up somewhere. Great deal too! So glad that you'll be taking a trip back home and that your dad will be traveling with you! Hugs, Leena

OMGoodness, that bedding is beautiful! I hope you find the shams. How wonderful that you can bring your dad to your home. I know this must be SO hard. I had my Mom here for 5 years and took care of her but to be away from home would be twice as hard. You are a very good daughter. XO, pinky
