So, what's the difference between a comforter and a duvet cover and why should you choose one over the other? Let me break it all down for you.
Comforters are a one-and-done piece, there’s nothing to insert or remove. Just throw it on your bed and go on about your way. Pick something versatile that you can live with for a while since comforters tend to cost more. Comforters can also be more difficult to launder as they are pretty bulky. Make sure your washing machine can handle the size and if not, be prepared to pay for a dry cleaning service or take a trip to the dreaded laundromat.
What is a duvet cover? Think of it as a giant pillow sham that will require a little work. You'll need to start with a plain white duvet or white blanket. The duvet cover will slip over this and button or zip up. The good thing is you can change these covers often if you decide to change up your room. Duvet covers are usually less expensive than comforters. Cleaning your duvet cover is much easier since you just slip it off the duvet and throw it in the washer.
I'm not saying one is better than the other, but maybe one is better for you. If you don't love change and have ample laundering options, perhaps a comforter is the way to go. If you do love change, then maybe try out a duvet cover. If you really have no preference, just flip a coin or buy whatever speaks to you.

Want a unique, affordable, and adorable DIY crib mobile? Read on....
Cut your fabric into 2" wide strips by approximately 24" - 30" long (vary the lengths). Now start tying the strips to the chicken wire around the inner edge of the window frame, alternating your fabrics.
Now attach the stars and flower balls to the inner part of the window. We used jute to tie them to the chicken wire. The final step is to attach an eye-bolt to each corner of the window (we used a bit of wood glue as well for added strength) and then attach your chain to the eye-bolt. Bring all 4 chains up to the middle of the window and attach them to an s hook which you will then attach to your ceiling with the hook of your choice. Your chain length will be determined by your ceiling height and the height you want the mobile to hang above the crib.
*Optional - add a string of fairy or twinkle lights to add a special touch. Either use battery powered or make sure you have an outlet nearby (try to hide the cord).
There you go, a DIY crib mobile that is very unique and affordable! You can use any number of items to hang from the inner part such as small stuffed animals, hearts, cowboy hats, birds, beads, etc. If you make one of your own please send a picture in the comment section below, I'd love to see your version.

If you are looking for a large round mirror, look no more! I absolutely love this mirror. It is so well made and beautiful. I use it in both my bathrooms as the vanity mirror.
This mirror works well with lots of design styles. It is so elegant and has a high end, designer feel to it. The bronze and gold hues are a beautiful mix and really draws the eye in.
It would also look great in a foyer or a dining room.
