I wanted to show you what I've done with my bed linens so far. I am making a headboard but I need a little sunny weather to work outside on it. This is my "summer" look with a matelasse quilt. I also have a lovely embroidered white comforter for the winter. I'll show you that when I have the headboard done.
My lovely cushion from Cindy's Etsy store, and a couple of soft cotton cushions (not sure if I'm keeping these).
This picture shows my new white eyelet bed skirt.
Lucy loves her new bed. These are the white cotton pillowcases that I bought from Vinnie's for $1. I can't help but think about the poor lady who crocheted this lovely edge, the hours of work, the fact that they were probably "too good" to ever be used and then her family dumped them without a thought. I hope she knows they are now with someone who appreciates all her care and hard work.
I've put my antique wash tub stand at the foot of bed. Right now there is soft blanket from Chapters but I plan on knitting myself an afghan (someday).
At the top, you see my new European shams with lilac purple edging and purple, blue and green stitching. I love them! They are so comfortable to lean back on while I'm watching TV or on my laptop. The polka dots are my new Kate Spade sheets - so cheery.
A last look before I crawl in....good night!
