In the mail
Not too much happening at casa limestone this week but I am waiting for a few goodies in the mail.
First up is a bedding gamble. It was only $15 for both comforter and two pillow cases and I liked the pattern so I had to give it at try. The photo is deceiving since all the reviewers seem to complain that its actually cream rather than white. Since I want cream over white, it convinced me it was worth a shot. I think this must be the cheapest bedding ever! Worse case is that I hate it and I'll use the fabric for another project.
There isn't a Walmart near me so I don't really have that much experience with them. I suppose I should hate them for being an evil empire and all that but I assume my $15 isn't going to make or break this multi-billion dollar behemoth. (I'll admit, Im not entirely a Walmart virgin. Last year I stumbled upon this cast iron bird that worked ever so well for the baby shower I was planning at the time. If they have these little gems, their stuff can't all be crap. Right???) For all those luxe bedding fans, have no fear - if this cheapo bedding works out, I'll be pairing it with some very high thread count sheets and comfy pillows. This is just the dressing on top.
Moving along to something a little less budget friendly, I finally decided to just go for it with the wallpaper for the built-in. I know most prefered the lighter gold option but something was really speaking to me about the darker silver/charcoal pattern.
Another gamble I suppose. What might look great in a 8x10 square, might look aweful lining the entire thing. We'll see it turns out when the roll arrives. It just might
Lastly, I had hoped to get my moving announcements finished this weekend so I could mail them out. After all, it has been a little while since Ive had a permanent address. But that didn't happen so Im still announcement-less. I had all sorts of fun ideas of what was I going to do but as time is wearing on, it looks like its going to be a simple card. When and if I ever get them done, I'll be sure to post a snapshot.
