What does a Garden Gnome do when she is not gardening, in the kitchen or doing genealogy? Well the answer might just surprise you so read the entries to find out more. This blog focuses on everything we do to make our house a home. There will be a strong emphasis on home energy efficiency and do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. At the same time there will also be crafts, knitting and crocheting projects along with any other little tips we do to create that down to earth, I want to be here home. Please enjoy your visit :)

We bought matching bed-in-a-bag sets for the vacation home and brought another home.  To this point we never really had a need for this type of thing.  Quite frankly they reminded of the highly co-ordinated look of most motel rooms.  A bed-in-a-bag comes set comes with fitted and flat sheets, pillowcases, pillow shams, bed skirt and comforter.  Everything is colour/pattern co-ordinated for a nice finished look.  Some bed-in-a-bag sets have co-ordinating items and accents that can be bought separately for a complete room look.  The prices are more than reasonable especially for what you get, starting at $19.95 for twin size and up.  You can get as plain or as fancy as you want.  The nice thing is with the low prices you could easily have a different look for each season!
