pottery barn duvet for sale...

Happy Thursday, girls!

I hope you are all warm and cozy today. It is frreeeeezzzzing here, so think of me today if you are one of my warm-climate friends!! Or, feel free to call me up and invite me down for a visit!

Today I am working on the "Urban Plains"bedroom. I plan on giving you a sneak peek next week, but while I am thinking of it I thought I would offer an orphan duvet up for sale, just in case any of you were pining for this one when it sold out from Pottery Barn.

It was part of the "Farmhouse Collection" that launched last January.

You can see it in the photo is the blue chambray duvet shown folded over the quilt.

This is the catalog it was first featured if you are like me...and have a stack of their catalogs that date back to somewhere around 1999, you can turn to page 5 in this one and have a look.

It is King Size, and I snagged it for one heck of a deal on clearance earlier this year. I had no plans for it, but for $60 I knew I had to grab it "just in case" it worked in one of the bedrooms in my home. Well, now that rooms and color schemes are coming is not going to work afterall, so thought maybe someone out there could give it a new home.

It may have been a return, or a display...I don't know. I just know it was after this one had sold out, I was walking through one day...and there she was sitting alone in the clearance corner, not in its original package. So it may not be 100% perfect, but I asked before I purchased it...and the girl that sold it to me told me if it is flawed, they cannot sell it in the store, it goes to their outlet. I unfolded it to check it over, and it looks good to me!

So, if someone out there would like it...send me an email!

$ shipping...and its yours!

UPDATE: Woohoo! The duvet has a new home! A great-big THANK YOU to Brenda!
I am off to get to work...we had a bit of a color change to the white walls in the guest room I am working on. "Snow White" was just too cold...but "Chantilly Lace" by Benjamin Moore did the trick! It is my new favorite white! Warm, but doesn't have a "cream" cast to it...but still a nice bright white. I recommend it to anyone out there looking for the perfect shade of white for their walls or furniture!


  1. Oh it's so pretty!
    How cool would it be if that was really my top secret side. I would be one happy girl :)
    Hope your staying warm!

  2. Thank goodness for your post! I picked up a duvet at the Goodwill Outlet and was going to cut it up for curtains without ever looking for a tag to see who made it. I saw your posting and the duvet looked familiar so I ran and grabbed mine and sure enough it's a Pottery Barn! Guess I won't be using it for extra fabric now!

  3. Wish you had some of those gorgeous quilts! ;)



  5. Chantilly Lace is my favorite white!! It is the perfect white, imo! Have a nice weekend Miss Mary! :) I know.. so darn cold here.. blah.

  6. Oh, yes, I have stacks of catalogs. You just never know when you might need to look back :) Love Pottery Barn Quilts! Hope she finds a good home.

    "Chantilly Lace" I'll remember that.I'm always looking for warm whites. Thanks!

    Hope you're keeping warm!

  8. mary, i may steal your idea, i have a red quilt and shams that have done nothing but sit on the end of the bed and i want to sell them, maybe i'll blog about it! glad you found a home for them! suz

  9. LOL! Oh stack of PB catalogs are stored in numerous wicker boxes in various rooms of the house! What is it about those that we just can't get ourselves to throw them away? Just seems wrong! lol! Thanks for the tip on the BM color, too. That's good to know!

    xoxo laurie

  10. Beautiful quilt. Glad it found a new home. I happened to use Chantilly lace in our new half bath. It was a quick pick for the painters (no sample just the fan deck) and I lucked out and I loved it!

  11. I was just about to email you about the quilt and I see it's on its way to a good home. I'm looking for one in that blue. I'm new to your blog and enjoying reading your new and older posts and catching up a bit. It's good to know of a good white. I've written down Chantilly Lace to try. There are so many whites!

  12. Hi Mary~ Just got my package from you today!;) LOVE the necklace you suprised me with!! Thanks soooo much my friend! And I am loving the green glass bottles I bought from you!! HUGS,Rachel

  13. I DO have a stack of those catalogs dating back to who-knows-when. The one you featured is my favorite because I am a newbie quilter and used those quilts on the cover as inspiration as well as the fact that I love farmhouse style. LOVE it. Also, found your blog through A Country Farmhouse and love the simple, lovely design of it.
