Every so often, I am sure my spouse is abducted by aliens-

Weird stuff comes out of his mouth!

We just got the uber deluxe mattress that the dog has to use the ottoman to get on (and we put it next to the bed) every night. Since we are moving, and since DH wants new everything, I figured new linens were in order. So I ordered bedspreads-one for us, and one for the guest room. They came in today. He didn't like either-and they are attractive. He said they looked too Holiday Inn! Let's hope I can afford return postage!

I ordered an extra bedspread for the MIL summer palace, and guess which one he wants?? I swear to GOD it's a test!!!

Huh. Did you hit him on the back of the head to bring him back to his senses? I like the lighter green one, in the first photo.

Where in the world did you find a bedspread? All I can find are those comforters. Not my choice in the summer. My bedspreads are barely alive anymore.
Charlies taste in bedding runs to quilted tops and ruffled bottoms. Surprise these are the sort of spreads his Mom always hand. No ruffles on my bed thank you :-)

The question here is DO YOU LIKE THEM? If so, then what's the problem. I wouldn't return them just because HE doesn't like them.
You are the one who wanted them in the first place and you will be the one making the bed and laundering it so what's the reason to return them?

The last set we bought was a special order because HE didn't like any of the pre-made ones.
Therefore we ended up paying an enormous amount for the set. That's fine though because I can remind him of why we spent so much on the set whenever he complains about my spending.

But...after all things are said, you buy the set you can both agree upon. You both may have to compromise a little. Sometimes that takes time.

I actually like the bedspreads, I thought he wanted to be over the top with the comforter sets. I am very concerned about returns, tho. If it costs more than 30% of price, I may just keep them!!!

Keep them both. However, I LOVE that pale seafoam green ensemble. I have never been in a Holiday Inn with a set up like that, and I have been to a lot of them! (snicker)

Hey, I just noticed that the font for your comment section is HUGE. Did you do that just for us old-timers?

Hmmm...a GUY picked out the bedspread? Must take him back to some happy childhood memory. ;-}

How about solid sheets and an awesome quilt on top? Lots of interesting textures & colors are possible.


one does wonder about men folk sometimes...but like i said, a guy who likes dogs can't be all bad!
