If you live on the east coast, are you ready for the hurricane? I am hightailing it to upstate New York this afternoon and have stocked up on wine in a box and Stouffer’s frozen French bread pizza (add some truffle oil and sea salt, and it tastes like a million bucks!), so I am all set. And I have my stash of Alfred Hitchcock films. And a playlist full of songs like “Rock You Like a Hurricane” and “Hurricane” by 30 Seconds to Mars. Weenie wants me to buy a raft or water wings just in case, so stay tuned.
And I plan to cozy up in bed.
Speaking of beds, you should really have fun with your sheets and such. Never, ever buy a head-to-toe look but rather mix and match and have fun with your linens. As Jason likes to say, “Libidinous linens are the way to my heart.” Jason also likes to say, “If the rig’s a rockin’, don’t come a knockin’,” but this is a family-geared blog, so we won’t explore his profound observations on a good bedside manner in this post.
Here’s our bed at Madcap Cottage that we have outfitted with the Suri Flowers bedding from the Martha Stewart Collection for Macy’s along with pillowcases that we picked up in Turkey and India and a bed quilt that we found at a flea market in Kentucky. And we added some custom ikat pillows…
And please note the simple bedside table that we found in Florida and painted black and decoupaged with elephants that we cut out from wallpaper. It’s a lot of look for minimal cash.
Isn’t this a cozy spot to hole up this weekend?
