Featured Bedding Collection: Blue and Green Circus Toile

Thursday, June 9th, 2011

Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, welcome to the greatest show on Earth!  This show is sure to entertain you with amazing acts of superhuman stunts, daring feats, and hilarious hoopla!

It’s the five o’clock hour at our house … behold the feeding frenzy of three small ravenous kids, heroic acts of parental patience, and some of the greatest juggling acts this side of the Mississippi! Okay, pardon the clichés and exaggerations, but bear with me here, I’m building up to something …

This juggling act that accompanies the circus in our house each evening could well be the inspiration behind our featured bedding collection this month: a collection that can make you smile and laugh like the adorable circus animals depicted on this fabulous woven cotton toile design.

Introducing the one, the only, Blue and Green Circus Toile!  Our gorgeous stripe and dot fabrics compliment the patchwork bumper and comforter. Once you feel and touch this incredible fabric you will be hooked, like a circus elephant on peanuts! Muted shades of blues and greens make your decorating options endless with this wonderful collection.

Sound like the perfect bedding set for your budding showstopper?  Then may I direct your attention to center stage where our ringmaster would like to announce (drum roll please) a CONTEST like no other … since our last contest!

How to Enter

Just give us your tips on how to handle the circus-like atmosphere in your home, be it the dinner time ‘juggling act’, the bath time ‘tightrope walk’, the bed time ‘stick your head in the lion’s mouth trick’, or … you get the idea.  Your entry can be funny, helpful, or just plain off the wall.  We’ll pick our favorite and the grand prize will be, of course, a 4-piece Blue and Green Circus Toile bedding set!

Is Green the New Blue or Pink?

Friday, September 5th, 2008

One of my best friends from college just had a baby. In fact, as I write, the baby is only 6 days old. I went over there last night and saw her 8-pound baby boy, who was absolutely beautiful. But I won’t spend my time gushing about how cute the baby was, because as we all know, babies are just that – cute.

What I will gush about is their nursery. It wasn’t the typical baby boy blue. It was a fresh, bright, candy green color. It was such an inviting room, I almost wanted to just stay there. Maybe it’s just me, but I like the movement away from a strictly blue or pink nursery. Breathing some fresh, green air into the nursery is a wonderfully fun idea!
