Start your Nesting!

Winter’s coming, and with it, the urge to create a cozy nest (I keep my heat so low at night to save energy that I need a seriously warm one, too!) Gaiam has some gorgeous new bed linens in their latest catalogue. I haven’t bought new sheets or blankets in years, as I haven’t seen many genuinely pretty and colorful options, but here they are, in 100% organic cotton. Definitely not plain and boring!
