Everything is in bloom right now and I'm heady with blossom happiness. This is the perfect time for a new spring & summer duvet cover that celebrates the beauty of this season.
For some time I've wanted to give our bed a fresh look so about a month ago I took a trip to the thrift store in search of sheets. I knew I wanted pink flowers and yellow accents. I'm not really a pink person in my decorating "style" but this time around I wanted pretty and feminine and pink fit the bill.
I lucked out. I came home with this sweet vintage pink, yellow and white flower patterned sheet. I paired it with a plain pink sheet, also found at the thrift store, for the underside.
I had to wait a couple weeks longer than planned since our sewing machine was being repaired. But once I started I was done the project in under an hour. And the best thing was I didn't have to use a measuring tape, iron or pins. I love sewing large rectangles!
Both sheets cost me $5.00 total and the yellow pillow I already had. In fact I picked it up at for $2 at the only yard/rummage sale I went to all last summer. I'm really am not a yard sale gal so when I find these treasures I am doubly delighted.
