You all know I op shop, car boot and all around treasure hunt, a lot. You all know I love my vintage and retro finds and even when it comes to modern day items, I tend to try and thrift it first before looking for it retail.
One of the things that has been on my list to purchase has been a doona cover (others might call it quilt cover). The tricky thing is I've been looking for a king sized one. I don't know about you, and where you op shop but king size sets are near on impossible to find. Let alone it be something that appeals to my vintage loving retro aesthetics, because the reality is there were no king size beds thirty odd years ago. So limited the search down king size and it appealing to my retro tastes is a bit of an ask.
But when you have got gorgeous friends like I do there are always extra eyes out looking for you. I received I picture text message the other week and I instantly got excited. Strings got pulled and it was put away for me until I could get into the shop.
Now I have a fabulous doona cover that has a bit of retro appeal to it and that compliments my FABULOUS green true retro blanket. What's more is that Master V loves it too and we're now more excited to see how our bedroom comes together when the painting is finished and feature wall done. If ever we can get around to more painting at present, life is just so busy.....we'll get there though.
