When the weather is cold and the days are short, there is nothing like a good book, a cup of tea, and a fire in the fireplace. Does life get any better? I have read some amazing books over the last few weeks and thought I'd share.

I can't wait for a new trend to come along in home decor. One that has colored paint on the walls. One that has some character and features rooms that celebrate the people that inhabit those walls.

I want this duvet set SO BAD, but at $120 (pretty reasonable, yes!) I can't quite rationalize it, so I thought I'd try to see if I could do a similar design myself using a microfiber duvet set that I received from an amazon.com seller at a discounted price for review. I paid $1.20 for it and received free shipping. I paid another $5.00 or so for the dye, so for under $10.00 I thought I'd give it a shot! Here's what I ended up with.
