I've been able to find inexpensive bed covers at a nearby thrift store. Since I like vintage things, I keep an eye out for cool stuff along that line. One of my favorites is old-fashioned chenille bedspreads. I've been able to find a few, and like to switch them out with the seasons. Since it's now June, I'm in summer mode. So here's a nice, cheerful, summer-y chenille bedspread that I just love.
Here's a closeup of the texture, and the pretty pink flowers among the design.
