Surprise, surprise...it's raining again here.
I took a run this morning to my one of my favorite places on earth, Pottery Barn.
It was the last day of their friends and family discount and a wonderful blogger (who I love to pieces ~ you know who you are and thanks ever so much again!) mailed me a coupon!
Hubby and I have been in there quite a few times recently wandering around looking for a way to spend the rewards we earned for buying our new sofa
We don't need another piece of furniture, rug, mirror or other big ticket item.
Of course, I could find a way to use it up on the things I love best like dishes, serveware etc.
But who wants to waste it away?
After much deliberation and knowing I could combine it with the 20% F&F deal, I decided to use it on new bedding for our bedroom.
I bought our last duvet, shams and toss pillows from Pottery Barn about 7 years ago and they are just now starting to show some well earned wear and tear.
Seven years ago the children were only 10 & 2 ~ young enough to reak havoc on everything.
For the past year, our adorable, little Brussels Griffon has made our bed her bed and honestly I don't mind the extra laundering since she is just so darn snuggly at night.
Point being, Pottery Barn might not have the most inexpensive bedding out there, but it is well worth the price.
Everything is always easy to care for and launder at home.
To me, I look at it as an investment of sorts.
You might spend a little more, but when something lasts a long time it is well worth it.
Like these boots I am wearing today.
I was strolling through Marshall's with my mom a long, long time ago when I spotted them.
Coach boots for what seemed like a song.
I grabbed these and another pair in brown suede.
Mom was shocked that I was splashing out on two pairs when one pair alone seemed like a splurge.
"Mom, I know it seems like a lot, but I will have these boots forever!"
And I have.
Have you made an investment in something that you know will stand the test of time?
