Cozy, Snuggly Bed

When it starts to get cold in Vermont, everyone comes out of the woodwork and wants to talk about their bedding. Maybe because in the Summer the last thing we want to do is be covered by our sheets and blankets, yet when the weather turns, we turn for those covers!

I’ll tell you what’s on my bed, year round. We sleep on Libeco Linen Sheets in the Summer, and at the turn of the weather this year I put on Coyuchi’s Cloud Brushed Flannel sheets. There’s a reason they’re one of Oprah’s Favorite Things. They are heeeeeavenly and so warm, don’t pill, they stay put on the bed and don’t get all mushed up in the middle. They wash so well are so nice and thick. These may be on my bed until July, haha!

Next layer is a staple on our bed, year-round. Traditions Linens Louisa Coverlet. When I tell you I’m obsessed with this, I’ve never been more serious in my life, lol. This blanket, well, Coverlet is the best. It’s machine washable, holds up to my kids, my dog and my big burly husband. It still looks brand new after numerous washes and plenty of dryer time. I LOVE this thing; and they come in 5 colors - White, Linen, Ivory, Charcoal, and Mist. I’d say they are included in probably 75% of the special orders for Bedding we do in the store.

Next layer is our Duvet. I have an All Year Weight Synthetic Down Duvet on our bed now. It’s the 'base level’ of our supplier’s Duvets and I’ve been so beyond impressed with this Duvet. I remember one time a lady coming in the store whom had just purchased one of their Siberian White Goose Down Duvets. We had a store full of people and when I asked her how she was liking it, she responded “well, I have a problem”, and I thought “oh no!!" She responded with “I never want to get out of bed!” Phew! The Duvets truly give you the lightness you desire with the warmth you crave. And the Baffled Box Construction on all of their blankets keep all of the fill in place.

It’s almost Thanksgiving!!!! My fave time of year is at our fingertips! The hustle and bustle, the lights going up all over our quaint little town and the ever falling snow just makes everything so wonderful. I have lots of family coming to our house for Thanksgiving - I LOVE cooking cooking - all. day. long. If you follow me on Instagram, you hear that alot :)

We’re having a special sale for Black Friday this year - buy 1 Dash & Albert Rug; get another 1 at 50% off! Perfect time to spruce up your home for all the company that will be arriving. Off to make Tacos for my family - Happy Tuesday folks!!

Today was an iconic, traditional fall day here in Vermont - what is fall like where you live? People are going crazy for our little town this weekend, there must’ve been 25 people at the Covered Bridge near our house today. Crazy! Yes, we get to drive over that quaint little bridge everyday, peeps! They look at you in awe as you drive over the bridge while they’re snapping away. Driving down Main Street there was a crowd in front of the Church next door to us, yes, a crowd. It truly makes me feel super special that I get to call this place home. I’ve known for 15 years now that I love it here, but every year at this time I “fall” just a little more in love :) No but really, if you haven’t visited Vermont in the fall - it is a MUST. There is no other place I rather be this time of year! Ask me again in February….and well, I’ll probably say “take me to the beach!!!”.

We spent today at a soccer tournament, and then we had a Thanksgiving dinner at my family’s house. A little early? Maybe. But why not? Tomorrow we have flag football and that is it. I will be home doing laundry after that and sorting our winter clothes for the upcoming season. What fits, what will get donated and what will get handed down….it’s a job I dread every year, but it must get done!

I’m thinking of baking an apple pie tomorrow too….Sundays are perfect for cooking, and as the weather gets colder I cook more and more. Follow along on Instagram to see the end result!

Happy Fall, y’all!!
