A boudoir for all seasons~

Well my blogging friends, I think I have finally completed my all season bedding collection! I just picked up a set that I had been hunting for, it was in JC Penny's years ago for over $400. I had searched the bay off and on, but it still went to high for my frugal self! Finally, yesterday I went to haunt one of my favorite resale shops and as I pulled up I saw it!! It was on the sidewalk with many other sets. I had a 10% off coupon and snagged it for $26!

This will be my spring set me thinks~ but of course I'm putting it on the bed now just to see it! Nova and I went to the laundromat today to wash it up in the big ol' commercial sized washing machine~
He had never been to a laundromat and was quite impressed. It cost a whopping $7.75!!

Of course what he was more impressed with was the snack machine since it's like the one on "Over the Hedge", lol!

Ok, ok... so here's the set, it's called Lucerne~ Gorgeous buttercream background with floral swags and rose bouquets, with a crystal pleated bed skirt.

SO~ that's Lucerne for Spring. Here is my summer quilt, Lucy by Armoire. I found the shams at Home Goods a few years ago on clearance. Didn't really want the quilt.... Until it was no where to be found. Searched and searched and finally found the last one left on the planet. A lucky find as it was not listed by name, I just searched for shabby chic robbin's egg blue. And it was NOT cheap. I choked as I hit the "buy it now" button.

Will have to wait till next summer for pics of that on my bed!
Let's move on to my fall ensemble... which you've already seen in previous posts. The Ralph Lauren Chaps Welbourne~ shown with vintage pink taffeta shams and a round accent pillow that did not come with the set. This was at Kohl's and I searched the net trying to find it cheaper to no avail. I did land it on clearance tho, but it was still steep at 60% off!
Ah, my winter set. My first REAL bedding set ever! Kevin bought it for me for our first Christmas in this house. This is also from Penny's, Romance Tapestry. I don't like matchy-matchy, so I only wanted the shams and the comforter. I use a burgundy bed skirt and draps with it. So rich!

I saw this set at the same resale shop last year for about $30 and it made me sick! I almost bought it for a backup, lol! Yes, I have a bedding fetish.

We recently bought some crown molding for a boudoir project, will post about it soon! Click

You are not alone in the bedding fetish department! I love changing the bedding, curtains, and accessories for the seasons. My husband is happy that I don't change the paint and furniture too!

Luck was with you!! I'm glad you found it! it is beautiful. I'm still searching for that perfect bedding(s) too. Having a Cal-king doesn't help because when I do find the perfect bedding, it's usually a queen. Thanks for sharing. Love the headboard. Scrumptious.

That's pretty! You sure got a great bargain. I love all your bedspreads, but I have to say, Lucy is my fave of them all! I had my own lucky bedding find this weekend. I found two pink chenille pillow shams at Goodwill for one dollar total.

It's always nice to find just what you're looking for, especially after a long search. :)

And that pic of Nova is so cute. :) Kids are always enchanted by vending machines, it's so endearing.

You will have the best dressed bed all year long!!! You have gathered some wonderful sets, and I know will enjoy each one. Your bargains balance out the splurges, so enjoy! Loved seeing Nova's sweet face!

I cannot find where you said where you got the Lucerne comforter. Can you post it here. It's the one with roses on the cream background.
