Small Discount; Free Shipping

I waxed-poetic about Pottery Barn’s koi duvet cover.

I know Pottery Barn put this on their Spring cover to attract my attention.

I’ve been keeping my eye on it ever since it came out.

We ordered a king size cover which is plenty long and wide.

My patience was finally rewarded with a 10 per cent discount and free shipping on the same day.

I stuffed it with our summer-weight comforter (which looks a little flat, I know).

A headboard would finish the look.

It brightens up the room and will look even better when I get the headboard in place. (I’m not even nearly ready to start that project.)

We'd been using a dark grey cover all winter -- time for a change.

Charlie was more than a little surprised by my choice because 1.) he thought I didn’t like orange (and I don’t) and 2.) he never knew I had a thing for fish. While I don’t care much for butterflies (worms with wings) or bugs (very unpredictable) I have a penchant for fish which I might go into some day but not now.

What is your penchant? Come on.

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.

    1. Ah, yes, the beasts. I informed Charlie he should eat “not on the new duvet cover”. That’s when he mentioned his surprise at my even having such a thing in such a color with such a print. Oh, well. Jo
