Which brings me around to....Do you LOVE your bed? You should. I do. Ours is on its last leg and I'm not looking forward to replacing it, but this weekend at our clothing swap I had a tempur-pedic epiphany. My friend Natalie is house-sitting and we had the swap in the lovely lair of a single dude. Right when we got there Natalie ordered us to his bedroom. Get in that bed, she said. OMG was created for such an experience. We are probably over his age limit, but he should be pleased that so many women were moaning in his bed. I'm not even going to google the price (actually I did, it's in the above link...gulp) because the thrift gods stepped in with an almost perfect solution. A fat temper-pedic mattress pad...brand new, king size, thank you Tracy, my thrift scout.
Down comforters, lots of patterns and pillows, a heated mattress pad, vintage wool throws, a candle, some hot tea, a good book, a cold winter night....it all adds up.
To Nestle Down.
P.S. Also, I am TWO cashmere sweaters richer, thanks to the clothing swap. Talk about cozy!
