I was originally going to wait until my room re-do was finished to share this, but then my duvet was arriving late, so I put of painting and a bunch of stuff. But I just love my quilt so much I caved and just had to share it now. Kantha quilts are made from old sari’s and are hand-stitched together. They’re really quite beautiful and each one is so unique. I’m absolutely in love with this quilt. I’ve wanted a kantha quilt for a while. I received this one c/o HomeSav.
If you’re not sure what HomeSav is, they offer high end home-related products at severely discounted prices! (Kantha quilts normally run around $200+ and right now they have a showcase on with them for $88. I kinda want another.) I’ve had some disappointing shopping experiences online recently, but HomeSav blew me away with their service.
They provide amazing customer service (Shout out to Amanda!), and even though they said it could take up to 3 weeks for my items to arrive it only took about 5 business days. Gold stars all around! I’m so happy with my quilt.. and I think I’m starting to become addicted to sites like HomeSav. Just what my bank account needs ;).
My duvet did arrive yesterday though, (finally! But that’s a whole different story…) so I’m really excited to start my room now that I have everything for it. I have to re-finish an antique desk, my dresser and paint still but I’m going to be sharing all of that as I do it :)

Welp. I had a bunch of recipes I wanted to try out and share, as well as some new outfits. And then I kinda broke my face. So I’ve been in bed all week. Last Wed I fainted at work and landed face first into a metal stand, a plastic box, then the floor and ended up in emergency for the day. Classy. So I’ve been eating mushy food all week and have been dopped up pain killers.
I’ve started to plan out all the rooms I want to re-decorate though, so I thought I’d share some of that. I planned out my bedroom a little while ago and have started making some things for it so here’s some of my inspiration that.
I’ve bought all the stuff to make a dream catcher, but I read that it’s actually bad luck to make yourself or buy yourself a pre made one. You should receive it as a gift, or have some one make it for you. So I’m forcing my crafty friends to make it hahaa. I got a wood K from Michaels for under a dollar, and I’m just going to stain it a little darker. I’ve been collecting frames from Value Village and repainting them. I’m also planning to make some textile heavy pillow covers.
Beth made a really cool skull and antlers out of masking tape and wire, so I want to make some of them too. Though I’m sure hers is going to put mine to shame. I have loads of work to do (including actually repainting my room) but I’m getting really excited. I hope to have it finished by the end of Sept.

Okay, anyone who knows me knows that I have a mug problem. Yeah, you heard me right. Mugs, tea cups, tea pots, dish-ware… it’s a weakness. Just thought I would share some mug eye-candy. Siigh, I want them all.

Man I love decorating shows & looking at home decor. Looking at all this stuff really makes me want to move just so I can redesign a home. But for now, I’ll just have to settle with redesigning my Sim’s home ;). Here’s a little home inspiration for you via Pintrest. All images click through to the pin & source.
