Glad I waited....

HI, YA'LL.....

This is a CHARTER CLUB DAMASK QUILTED KING COVERLET AND SHAM SET in White,
that I have coveted FOR. EVER.
(photo off the net)

HOWEVER...........
the price was waaaaay over our budget here at SWEET NOTHINGS.
$185.00 plus shipping

I waited for it to go on sale, online at MACY'S, and it DID...
$109.99 plus shipping
and that was STILL to much for my stretched budget.

AND THEN.......
The Ebay Fairy flew into my cottage and whispered,
" (whispering ever so softely) bj, you MUST check out what was just
listed for sale......."
and, I said,
"Why, cute little Ebay Fairy , I am on my way to check it out, right now."

BRAND NEW.....never taken out of original package...
CHARTER CLUB DAMASK QUILTED KING COVERLET AND SHAM SET......
$49.51
plus $12.00 shipping....
I am SOOO thrilled with my silly self for waiting for a better deal to come along.

NOW, it's time to TWEAK.....
I added my vintage RED CHECKED pillows.....♥♥
and my deep RED bed skirt.....
and my beautiful JC PENNEY's
RED and WHITE QUILT....♥ ♥ ♥
....nothing fancy here at Sweet Nothings....just country comfort ...
not a bunch of pillows to take off every single night...
this is much like a bed I had when I was a teenager...oh, no, it wasn't a king size,
but it was pretty.....and it was comfortable.
Comfort THINGS, just like comfort FOODS, are so good for the soul. 
ahhhhhhhhh,
I can't wait to climb into my bed tonight. :))

Nothing wrong with cozy country comfort!

Olive Cooper said...

Got to love the fairies. I also love your red and white checks BJ. I have wanted a Shabby Chic duvet from Target for a while but will not pay $79 for one. I barely ever buy retail. Found a stained one in a thrift store for one dollar and the stain came out with Oxyclean. It is the wrong size for my bed but will use it at the end of the bed. I make do quite well. hugs, olive

Love Of Quilts said...

Ebay can be good to us sometimes, a great fine, happy you found what you wanted.

NanaDiana said...

It is beautiful, bj. What a find. It looks comfortable and pristine! Love your red touches with it. Your place always looks so homey!

Do you know I have never bought anything from eBay? I sold a bunch of stuff (years ago) but I never bought anything. I think I need to do a little investigating! xo Diana

Stacey said...

Beautiful! I can't believe you got such a great deal. :)

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Oh what fun! It's so perfect to wait and get something you want...at the right price! I'm so happy for you! Life if good...as shown in your sweet photos! Hugs!

Beth said...

Beautiful!! You got a great bargain!

Blondie's Journal said...

I love it, BJ, and the deal you got! I am so happy for you! I also love that gorgeous bed you have. Yes, you don't need a lot of pillows to dress this bed up...it looks perfect with your red checked ones and the beautiful quilt! Sweet dreams!

XO,
Jane

BJ, I love it! Once you added those red gingham pillows, it was the icing on the cake. What a deal too...good thing you waited.

Sonya@Beyond the Screen Door said...

What a great find! I have always loved that JCP red & white quilt and it looks amazing with your new coverlet. I love a good deal!

Good things come to them that wait...Beautiful bed. Simply beautiful.

So happy for you that you got such a great deal! The bed looks lovely.

Lea also known as "CiCi" said...

Hats off to you! Way to go! Persistence does pay off sometimes. Your bed is a welcoming site!

Vee said...

It helps to have a team of personal shoppers...or and Ebay fairy or two, doesn't it? What a wonderful look and I know that you'll snuggle well under those covers tonight. The bed does look particularly cute filled with granddaughters.

Ann from On Sutton Place said...

The red and white is just perfect. Love the vintage touches. Fabulous deal too!

Irene said...

What a smart girl to wait. What luck. I think you need to buy a lotto ticket. The photo of your grandgirls on the bed reminded me of my sister and cousins spending the night together and what fun we had as teenagers. I can tell you really love them and enjoy having them over.

Joy@aVintageGreen said...

Ooooh what a great combination of lovely bedding. The grands will remember their time with you forever.

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME/Doublewide Decor said...

I love when that happens....my girlfriend says that is a "God thing"! Enjoy it tonight!!

Kathleen said...

That is a great deal! Enjoy it!

Something Nice and Pretty said...

Great deal on it BJ, it looks wonderful!

Corn in my Coffee-Pot said...

Please don't anybody tell me the Ebay Fairy isn't real. It may scar me for the rest of my life...y'all wouldn't want that would you?

bj, love this bedding. The red check...sends me!

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

What a great deal...mine just came off to get ready for the down comforter for fall! Love the red accents!

Beverly said...

Another proof that good things do come to those who wait. It look fantastic, BJ.

Cranberry Morning said...

Oh I LOVE stories like this! It pays to wait and check around. Good for you!! :-)

Maria @ LSS said...

I love the pillows. Happy RT2.

Mine's here.

On Crooked Creek said...

BJ,
So~o~o glad your waiting paid off!!! I waited too long and someone else walked away with "My Treasure" last week! Your bed looks so inviting...perhaps you could sneak in a nap and not have to wait until evening!!! Sweet dreams at Sweet Nothings!!!
Fondly,
Pat

Audrey said...

hi bj ... the spread looks great with the bed and awesome color combination with the little pop of red. Gotta love a little red. I love spreads that lay flat because comforters are too poofy/fat. Always looking for a nice spread for my Calif.King bed, but never find one I like, so just deal with what I have.
Hugs.

It is all so very BEAUTIFUL!!!! AND you got it on sale so you love it even more!! Amazing what you can find on ebay and I love knowing you have a little 'fairy' whispering in your ear, too!! And I thought I was the only one.....

Ralph said...

Your home, as always, is lovely and full of country charm! The white is brilliant and the pillow covers are a great ruby pattern (gingham?) that makes the room even more lovely!

beccagivens said...

Love the red and white bed ensemble. I want to dive right into it. Very welcoming!!

What a super deal, BJ, and it is so beautiful!! Love how you've decorated the bed. Nothing makes my heart sing like red and white checks...except, maybe black and white ones! I'm so happy that you finally got the bedding of your dreams...Jan
