Face a Brave New Year…In Bed

Mff…? Um…? Oh. Hi. Sleepy after last night’s party. Too sleepy to be witty.

So while I go back to bed and sleep it off, fill in your own bon mots about this fabulous quilt set I found at Smartbargains.

Antique Chic Quilt Set

This pure cotton set is the perfect thing to snuggle under with its charming Boho patchwork style and oversized dimensions. It comes with one 105″ x 95″ King sized quilt, two 20″ x 36″ King sized shams, and two 16″ x 16″ decorative pillows.

So how much for all that comfort and style? Well, the retail would be $199.99. But if you get it from Smartbargains today, you’ll pay just $74.98! That’s a savings of 62%!

Don’t stop there, though! This weekend only, Smartbargains is having a huge bed and bath sale with savings up to 75% on selected sheets, towels, comforters, and so much more. If Santa or Hanukkah Harry didn’t bring you warm sheets or thick towels, it’s nice to know you can get them without breaking the bank or those New Years resolutions to be more financially responsible.

Nighty night.

How Di-Vine

Even though spring has not yet sprung, I find myself thinking of green things and pretty plants…and then I think of how I kill plants by merely looking at them and turn my mind to representations of the same plants in hopes that mere representations will survive my attentions.

Of course, it’s still cold at night and that makes me think of snuggling up warmly under a warm comforter.

Put those two urges together, and I found just the thing to satisfy both desires at Macy*s.

The Victoria Classics “Camille” 8-Piece Comforter Set features a pattern of scrolling vines and delicate flowers embroidered on a pale green background. The set includes: a comforter, a bedskirt, two standard or king-sized pillowcases, two European shams, and two decorative pillows. Just add the coordinating 300tc sheets and go! Or pick sheets of your own.

Either way, this is a great deal. The original price on the set was $200.00 for the Queen size set or $250.00 for the King size. Right now, though, you can have your choice of either size for a mere $99.99!

Friday Finds Under Fifty: Whites This Winter

It’s a well-known fact that January is a great time to get new linens for your bed, bath, and tabletop. Who am I to argue against refreshing the linen closet at the same time most of us resolve to clean up our acts. So with no further ado, here are some great deals I’ve found on everything you need to spruce up your whites…whether or not they’re actually white.

icon Of course, it never hurts to start with something that’s really white, like these handsome, classic pillowcasesicon from Nordstrom. Not only are they crisp and clean and elegant, they’re comfy to boot. Why? Because they’re 500thread count Pima cotton. Really, the only questions left are whether to get them in Standard or King size, and whether to get them in white or ivory.

The one thing you won’t have any question about is the price! The regular one is $60.00 – $70.00 for a set of two. Right now, though, they’re on sale at $44.90 – $49.90. You can’t go wrong at that price!

The Weather Outside is Frightful…No, Really, It Is

Hailstones! It’s been HAILING! Do. Not. Want.

So since it’s so dratted cold out, of course I went looking for warm dreams.

Found, ‘em, too.

300TC Duck Down Blankets See? Pretty colors. 300 thread count, satin bound, white duck down filled comfy, cozy blankets.

I don’t know about you, but I want to snuggle up in one – or even two! – of these and warm up.

Best of all, you can afford to do just that. Why? Because they’re selling for just $59.99 at Smart Bargains! The regular price is up to $149.99, so that’s a price to warm your heart as well as the rest of you.

Brighten Your Bed

One quick, easy way to chase away the wintertime blahs and update the look of a bedroom is to change out the bedding. Voila! With a new comforter and a pillow or two, the room looks new and cheerful.

Tommy Hilfiger’s Sanibel Island pattern would be a terrific way to combat winter chill and ennui. The pastel stripes, plaid, and butterfly patterns are enough to make anyone think of spring and smile. What’s more, the pieces are reversible for added versatility. The comforter, for instance, has butterflies on one side and stripes on the other.

The set includesicon: comforter, bedskirt, and two pillow shams (one sham in twin size). The set is made of 100% cotton and is machine washable for easy care, too.

How much would you pay for all that? If you said $279.99, then go buy it somewhere at full price. The rest of you can follow me to Overstock.com and get it for only $129.99, a savings of 54%!

As Visions of How to Spend the Other $500.00 Dance Through Your Head

We can all use some new bedding now and again. Most of us can use a high-quality duvet. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t want to slip into a high-thread-count bed and snuggle up. Well, now is your chance to do just that, even if you’ve taken a small hit in the recent economic crises.

This duvet seticon comes complete with two matching shams, all in 800 TC 100% Egyptian cotton. Choose from six attractive and versatile solid colors. I like the blue (shown), but you may prefer sage green, chocolate brown, crisp white, elegant ivory or classic taupe.

Oh, and that five hundred dollars I mentioned in the title? Well, you’ll actually save a little more than that if you order the set from SmartBargains today. See, the original price was $620.00, but it’s available now for the pittance of just $89.99 in your choice of Full/Queen or King size!

I would probably get this gorgeous topaz and chalcedony chokericon for myself ($138.98, retail price $350.00, regular Smart Bargains price $179.99) and then find a really great watch for Mr. Twistie.

Easy, Breezy, Beautiful Bed

We’re moving into a time of year when I want more than anything not to get up in the morning. I want to cuddle under my quilt and ignore the world.

Of course, it can’t be just any old quilt! It must be one that feels warm and snuggly while looking superfantastic. Well I found just such a quilt today and it’s on sale at Pottery Barn!

Ocean Breeze Quilt Just look at that. Cheerful robin’s egg blue and crisp white in a slightly splashy yet elegant design, intricate quilting, comfy fabric with thick batting to keep you warm at night…this quilt has it all.

The pillow shams (alas!) are all gone, but just think of it as an opportunity to be more creative. Imagine this quilt with piles of pure white pillows and sheets, a tumble of orange, or an elegant conglomeration of plum purple and moss green.

Oh, and the price! Originally this quilt would have set you back $229.00, and who could argue against that deal? The good news is you don’t have to haggle now to get it for a mere $129.99! That’s nearly half off, which is never a bad thing.

It’s Never Too Early to Be Superfantastic

The next generation of the superfantastic is already here and growing up. It is our responsibility as people of taste and discernment to raise them correctly, and that means exposing our own kids (and those of our best friends and siblings, etc.) to great style right from the beginning.

That’s why I got so excited when I headed over to Pillows and Throws.Com only to find this adorable crib set by Modern Basics on sale:

Frog Crib Set With its cheerful leaf green color and friendly frogs, it’s just the thing to start off your child appreciating good design and good humor in equal parts. The 280TC cotton sateen fabric will cradle baby in comfort as well as pizzazz, too. After all, the best design is not only fabulous to look at, but delicious to the touch as well.

The set includes: a reversible crib bumper with 9″ ties in 22 places, a reversible crib quilt, crib skirt with 15″ drop tailored with inverted pleats, and a standard sized crib sheet.

Normally, this set would set you back $270.00, but you want the best deal so you can afford to buy baby superfantastic shoes, too! That’s why it’s so exciting to me to find the set on sale for just $215.99! That’s a savings of 20%, which will come in handy when you want to get some extra sheets for the crib.

The good news is they’re on sale, too!

Duvet You Love Me?

As the nights get chillier, I find myself thinking about snuggly bedclothes to keep me warm…particularly on the nights when Mr. Twistie isn’t there to do the job. Well, a little dreaming at Bluefly found me this delicious deal:

Dwell king duvet set - chinios green 'Silhouette' 320TC Egyptian cotton This King size duvet set by Dwell is pretty, isn’t it? Yes, it is. But more than pretty, it’s machine washable 320TC combed Egyptian cotton. The set includes the duvet cover and two matching king size pillow shams.

Best of all, it’s on sale. Originally priced at $300.00, the set can be yours now for a mere $180!

If you need me, I’ll be cozily wrapped in that gorgeous duvet.

Count Threads, Not Sheep!

It’s a truism that the higher the thread count, the softer the sheets…well, these Bordeaux sheets must feel amazing because the thread count is 1,000. Yes, you read that right: 1,000!

Bordeaux 1000tc Sheet Set Imagine sleeping on a cloud. Now imagine the cloud is even softer 100% cotton sateen. Then imagine the cloud comes in your choice of light blue (I’d call it robin’s egg) or soft green (very minty) in a complete set to fit your queen sized bed, and includes extra pillow cases. Mmmm…I could drift off to Dreamland just thinking about that.

But you don’t have to dream because it’s available on sale at Smartbargains.com right now. The original price for the fitted sheet, flat sheet, and four pillow cases was $200.00. Smartbargains was selling it at $99.99, which was a great deal. Now, though, they’ve marked this amazing set down to a mere $69.97!

At that price, you can hire real sheep to be counted if you have trouble falling asleep.
