Remember that Eiderdown.......

Remember the Eiderdown I got from e-bay? Well here it is on the bed. The cat couldn't resist having her picture taken.
She looks really evil in this pic, but she's only yawning. I love my new eiderdown, but so does the cat which is a worry, as she's not fussy where she sharpens her claws, even though she has two cat scratchers upstairs. Also the paw prints and furs a worry, as they aren't the easiest things to clean, but I suppose whats the point of having something lovely if you can't enjoy it.

Our bed is on its last legs and we are in need of a new one, and we need new bedding, which I'm saving up for, as I'm torn between a Cath Kidston set and a Laura Ashley set, both of which are not cheap. So if anyone knows of any pretty rose bedding that's cheaper can you let me know!
I also have plans to re-jig the cushions and make a new one or two, as well as having a bash at covering our bedside lamps.
Peg Rail update........ Its had its second coat, but will need another. xxxxx

Our cats love eiderdowns and we have two eiderdowns awaiting repairs to prove it! I'm such a softie I like to see them making themselves cosy, though!
Cath K bedding is cheaper by at least a third at the outlet stores...

Look forward to seeing that pegrail!!!
The eiderdown is gorgeous, just keep an eye on Moggie!!
As to bedding, Dunelm Mill have a lovely, pretty, rosy range of bedding called "Marianne" I have the duvet cover, and white and red mini polka dot fitted sheet. It's gorgeous, and a lot cheaper than CK & LA. If there isn't a Dunelm Mill near you, I would expect they'd have a website, so you could have a look, and most places do mail order.

Have fun : )

Have you looked on the ike website? I am sure I saw roses on a duvet there? I could be wrong but it is worth a look

Thecraftytrundler said...

This is the range, I mentioned earlier,it's gorgeous!!

It's certainly worth a look, and I've had mine almost a year now, and know it washes well.

That wasn't too long a wait for your eiderdown :)
Its lovely :)
I'm keeping an eye out for one - well 2 actually but thats me I always push my luck!!! The ones I see are usually burgundy 70'sesque rather than shabby chic sadly!!!
BHS sometimes do some flowery pretty bedding??
