The other purchase for the Bungalow was a joint effort between my mom and dad and me. We visited a silk factory in Shanghai and learned about how silk warms make silk and how the factory manufactures 100% silk comforters and duvets. It was actually very interesting!
We were told if we wanted to purchase silk goods, this would be the place to do it. Sure, you can find silks in the markets, but you can never be sure they are the highest quality and 100% silk. So I purchased a silk comforter for Mike and me and mom and dad bought the duvet for a Christmas gift (Christmas in July!). I looked around and immediately picked out the one below. How about that for a keen eye? I can't believe how well it matched our existing bedroom accessories!
Thanks mom and dad! And Merry Christmas!
Not to shabby when you see the before and after:
I'm so thankful to Mike for helping me paint the room. Now, we have to tackle the stairway (yikes). This is why I bought him an 8-foot ladder for his birthday!

I promise to write more on here more frequently. I've been a bad blogger this summer.
