If you suggest it....I WILL buy it!

I ordered this ruffle duvet from Urban Outfitters and as most on-line shopping sites do once you've added something to your cart ....they show you a teaser of what you "might also like"....

.....the matching shams perhaps?

....the coordinating and oh-so-tempting laundry tote?

It's a marketing technique that's rarely lost on me....so into my cart they went as I secretly hoped for more "suggestions". But that was it, and really, that was enough!

Oh that is so cute! All of it. I especially am impressed with that laundry tote. It's adorable.I would have grabbed them all too.

Oh, such dreamy ruffles. I've often fallen for the 'you might also like' technique. They know what we like - who are we to argue?
Great finds!

Too funny, I was just looking at this set today in an upscale consignment shop today. Thinking about getting it it was 69.99, however im thinking it might drive me insane tryin to keep the ruffles straight....LOL, im just a touch OCD.

That's pretty, but I liked the Home Goods bedspread better. BTW, I've been to every HG in our area & no luck on finding one. :(
Your kitchen is looking amazing! What a difference paint makes. Your hubby is a sweetie for making your wish come true.
