the best clearance I ever did shop...and purchase

A year and a half ago, Husband and I splurged on a lovely bed quilt from Anthropologie.  Because the quilt itself was a splurge, we didn't buy the rest of the set, and made do with the euro shams that I already had from another quilt set that matched pretty darn good. 

But when the heavens open, and you find the rest of your bedding set half-off at Anthro a year and a half later, there is no question in the matter. 

Now, may I present to you the Alhambra bedding set in its entirety...
and 50% of what will be wrapped under my tree...




"Spend 1001 nights warmed by fiery medallions amidst lush foliage. Decorative stitching accents and patchwork-striped shams are trimmed with tall tales and perfect patterns."

Ahhh. 
Some things are worth waiting for,
in the name of a good deal--
especially when it is this lovely.

Merry Christmas to me!

P.S. A handful of the beautiful clothbound penguin classics are on sale!

What are you hoping for this Christmas?

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
