Welcome to Holiday Loot Theme Week, the latest in my highly-entertaining, if gimmicky, series. If you are one of those people who hates to be forced into looking at other people's new stuff, I can only ask you why you are reading this blog in the first place :-)
Since I'm approaching 2009 with an aim to be ever-more conscious about acquisition, I may not be able to continuously bombard you with "this week's new such-and-such". Don't worry, this is not a ban and I have no pre-conceived notions about how it will progress. Point is, I feel the need to maximize my gifties for the eye-candy they are, IMO.
So let's debut with my new Ralph Lauren bedding, courtesy of my parents:
It's a bit hard to tell in this shot but the sheets are sage green and the duvet and some pillows are white. It's the same colour bedding I've had for 10 years, to be honest. But I really like the gentle tone. And it goes well with the walls which are - gasp - vaguely pink. But not ugly, I swear.
Interesting things to note: Those throw pillows are the same ones my parents had on their bed 30 years ago. They're vintage! And the lamps, which come on when you touch any of the metal, were bought 10 years ago at Home Depot. For 10.99 each! Fuck Elle Decor. That's what I say. :-)
