I couldn't stand to look at my comforter another minute! It was an inexpensive bed in a bag set, that has long since served it's purpose, and Ducey's favorite thing to do is jump into the middle of the bed then roll around until it is a mess!!! Keeping our rambunctious Wheatie in mind while shopping for a new comforter, I have yet to find what I am wanting. Also, do I want to change colors? Paint the room? So until I decide. I decided.to lighten it up and give it a new look for the warmer weather, I put my white matelasse spread on, and folded a spring quilt over the foot of the bed. I bought this quilt several years ago. I loved the colors and detail on it. Greg was never crazy about it....too feminine. I thought I had matching shams, but couldn't find them, so I put a set of pretty slips on the extra pillows, and layered a couple of pillows in similar colors on the bed. I put the soft bear I recently bought on the bed, knowing full well that when Greg saw it he would make a terrible face and I would move her back to my sewing room. I need a new dust ruffle, and now the curtains look bad with the spring colors in there. I am still on a hunt for a new comforter set, so this is temporary. But it sure freshened it up in there. Here is the before.
Okay..maybe not fab..but better than drab.
Sitting here in my bed right now, I am thinking already that I will change the pillow slips from the ones I put on today, to another set I just remembered having that may go even better. And who knows, it might all be changed again next week to something altogether different.
Aftter I changed the bedding, I did something else.
Leaving you with a couple more pictures. Once is of a flag I bought in Temecula on Saturday.
My friend Jae and I went out to see a couple quilt shops, and we had a most perfect day! We went to the quilt shops first, and found all sorts of wonderful things. And then we poked our heads into another dozen or more shops. Had a delicious lunch at a burger place that was listed in Diners, Drive Ins and Dives. And ended at a great little thrift shop where we found even more treasures. It was a great day. Our husbands were camping with their mens softball team so we were footloose and fancy free.
This afternoon Mr. Sweet Life pulled in from his camping trip with the boys.
