Up In Smoke, The Aftermath

Many of you will remember our near miss to an apartment fire from the end of December and my much mourned loss of nice sheets and comforter. After much shopping and even the purchase and return of a comforter found wanting, I have FINALLY done it. I found Comforter Charming.

It is beautiful isn't it? All maroon and gold and green. It matches the curtains just right and the nice green throw rug we have too. It didn't cost an arm and a leg and it is honestly, my most favorite comforter set I have ever owned. (smiling with satisfaction) Yay for JC Pennys!

And, even more, I replaced my wonderful high thread count sheets, courtesy of a sale at Kohls.

Gold damask. Very pretty, no?

And our little culprit?

Still as handsome and as innocent as ever. He has no idea about the furor and tears he caused. As for me, it incident is over, my stuff is replaced, so I am happy. And much to Bald Man's delight, I am even motivated to actually make the bed every day. It just looks so pretty when it is made.

Beautiful picture of the Little Man and your lovely new comforter. And I think we have the same sheets in dark red!

Nice bed. And the young model is just so good looking!

Look at the innocent smile!!! How could anyone be angry with this little angel? *giggle*

Congrats on the linens! I love the color scheme & can relate to making the bed more often when there's new sheets!

I got a really puffy, light blue comforter on sale last winter. Daisy the Terrier just loves jumping up on it with her sandy little paws and grinding her face into the comforter to clean the goo out of her eyes! Fortunately, there's a laundromat with really big machines not far from here.

Oh, I'm so happy to read this post, Jo! I felt sooo badly for you when I read about this last year. I LOVE the damask-stripe sheets, I have very similar ones at home!
