Different Looks....

Hi Girls....

Many of you may remember that earlier this summer, I finally got rid of my old waterbed that I had for close to 25 years and I bought myself a new bed (boy, what an expensive summer this girl has been having. First the bed, which was actually planned into my budget, and then a new computer which wasn't).

Thought I would share with you two different looks for my bed. I first started with my Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Duvet covered quilt which I totally love....

However, after having this heavier cover on my bed for several weeks, I came to the realization that it was way too warm to use during the hot summer months, so I switched to a lighter weight quilt in a soft pastel patchwork pattern. This quilt is one I have had for several years and which I purchased from JCPenney.

I just love the looks of the bed dressed both ways and with the winter months soon to be upon us, I am sure I will be switching back to the heavier Shabby Chic duvet covered quilt before too long as that one will keep me nice and toasty during those long cold winter nights.

Which looks is your favorite??

Thanks for stopping by for a visit today. Come back again soon!!

They are both so pretty. I would have to say I like the Duvet best also very much like the quilt. It is nice to be able to switch with the seasons.
