A little post-moving indulgence...


The only thing I've ever purchased from Wiliams-Sonoma Home is a set of black and white chinoiserie dessert plates that I scored at a Pottery Barn outlet outside Austin. As much as I adore WSHome's general aesthetic, its prices tend to make my very price-conscious husband hyperventilate. So generally I just do a little virtual window shopping, admire all the prettiness, and then surf on over to Pottery Barn to see if it has something similar.

But not today. Today, I decided to indulge myself and buy my own housewarming present. I couldn't help but give in to this lovely bedding's siren song -- with its pagodas, geometric scrolls and lovely colonial blue, it was practically screaming "AVERILL! BUY ME!!"

And so I did. Hopefully, by the time they arrive the new master bedroom will be in good enough shape for a few photos.

Good for you! A little present shopping for yourself is healthy! And I can't wait to see photos of it in your new home! So pretty!

That sheet set is incredible! I'm sure they are well made, and will hold up to their price tag. Besides, you deserve it! ;)

SO beautiful! These are screaming my name too... (but my wallet is also screaming). I didn't even know that WS did bedding.

They are beautiful, Averill! I'm glad you splurged! I look forward to pictures of them on your bed. Every woman deserves to purchase one house-warming gift for herself.
