I was so happy when Martha Stewart called! Well, ok she didn’t call, but her people did, and they asked me to create two posts to share some of my favorite things from The Martha Stewart Collection, created for Macy’s for Christmas. Best of all, they gave me so many options that I spent about half a day making my choice for themes and products and I decided on two core themes: Eating and Sleeping. That about sums up the week between Christmas and New Year’s Eve for most of us, right?!?
This is my first post decided to Sleeping but with a twist, a Christmas-y bedroom that doesn’t scream Christmas, but instead is festive enough for now. When I shop, I always look for things that I can keep and enjoy so in January, I can keep everything on my bed except for the little hats pillow and the wreath above the bed, and then I have a look that is understated and clean. I can even fold back the quilt so you only see the stripes, and replace the shams with clean white ones, and create a wreath from fresh eucalyptus over my bed for January and pack this one from Martha away until next year.
Here is my bedding from The Martha Stewart Collection, created for Macy’s. It’s only available for a very limited time, and the sales on these products right now are extremely good, so if you really want to buy something that you see then do it NOW because once it sells out, that’s it! You can also shop these things (and more!) at Macy’s store nearest to you.
AND if you don’t live in North America, Macy’s ships overseas. I got my order within a week, and I’m in Germany! I also appreciated that their was no tax nightmare, things came directly to my door without a trip to the tax office to pick it up. love how Macy’s ships here now, it gives me a chance to have some more typical “American” things in my home that I don’t have access to but have missed.
So now I have a funny little story to tell you about a small robber in my home. He appeared during my mini home photoshoot today. Do you know who it could be?
Why yes, it was my little boy, who turns 5 in only two months (!!!). He came in while I was taking photos and jumped on the bed (such great timing and so much fun some days to work from home, NOT, #momlife) and he quickly grabbed the pillow with the little hats and ran off! The pillow thief! I called out to him, “Where did you take the pillow, Schatzie?”, and he replied, “You aren’t getting it back, I like it!’. So look carefully at the pillow on my bed below because it’s the last time anyone will see it there.
It’s on HIS bed now. #$%*&!
I actually really like it on his bed though AND I really like my room with only the faux fur pillow, it’s more me. Both pillows are cute, but my little boy likes nice things in his room so I can’t say no if he swipes my decor stuff. AND I do like my bed the “new” way below, too. I guess we both win.
What do you think? Do you like the bed with or without the hat cushion? Here it is without, below:
Now it’s time to SHOP THIS LOOK: (but do it NOW because everything is on a super special offer at the moment and once it sells out, that’s it!)
Windowpane Reversible 50" x 60" Classic Sherpa Throw (available in grey or red)
Faux Mongolian Fur 20" Square Decorative Pillow (available in silver or ivory. Please note ivory is really pure white and looks great, for faux fur it looks and feels real and its very soft and cozy, and the fur is on both sides which I love.)

I hope that you enjoyed my first post for Martha Stewart: SLEEPING! Next will be EATING and I’ll show you what I have to share with you next week on Monday.
Have a lovely weekend, more home tours will be on the site Monday. I have 12 more home tours schedule for December, so stay tuned for almost a tour-a-day until New Year’s Eve!
