Bargain Hunting at DFO...

New Quilt cover hanging in the breeze...

Previously I have written about my little fetish with buying sheets. Well I was in heaven last Sunday... I went to DFO at Jindalee in Brisbane.

There were alot of shops there that I could have spent alot of money in but didn't really want to. There was nothing that I NEEDED...

Well, I went into Adair's and that is just about one of my favourite shop in the whole wide world. I saw this beautiful bed made up with lovely sheets and bedlinen. I had a look at the price of the Queen size quilt cover and pillow cases...

I could not believe my eyes. Being factory seconds but still in excellent condition there were quilt covers reduced from $220.00 to $19.95 each. Pillow cases were $25.00 down to $5.95 each.

Needless to say I had to get two sets. These are pure cotton and have a lovely feel to them as well. I can't believe I got them. I paid for them out of my own spending money off course. I didn't want this to affect our budget and it was something that I needed not what Russell wanted. So I got the two sets, washed them this morning and hung them out. The piccy above shows them swaying in the morning sun this morning.

They have come off the line now and are waiting patiently in the cupboard for when the new mattress comes and then will be put on at that time. I am sooooo happy. :)

Cheers Damaris

PS Next time I will show off my new peg bag that I made up with an old coat hanger and some shade cloth. It works really great...

D,
I am so jealous - I too have a cotton sheet fetish!

My favourite sheets are the ones on my bed at the moment, you have been on them too! 3000 thread count 100% egyptian cotton sheets - like sleeping in silk! Gosh, its heaven! But very expensive - Mum says I will be able to pass my sheets on later in life, but who to?
Huggles,

Yes it was hard to stop at 2 sets. Will be hard to get out in the morning to do the milking :)

Oh Adam, you can always leave your sheets to ME, and sooner rather than later too if you like. :)
