I have something new...Sharing with you!

Well it is all coming together... my sweet friend Vicki (vgetts@tx.rr.com)delivered custom pieces today. Let's take a look!
BEFORE: Custom bedding.. I designed it but DID NOT sew it! I had it for 6 years and loved it. I was really ready for a change!

AFTER: Bedding by Waverly from Target. Vickie made the long pillow in the back, swirls with dots. The sweet little white pillow case behind the sham's, I found this week at Goodwill.. $1 for the pair! The little white pillow in front found at the Salvation Thrift Store, love the script.. be sure and read! 3 bucks! The pillow on the window seat - the little sampler found at Goodwill few months back, cost me 50 cents.. because the girl at the counter said... "Now, who would want just this piece of needlework?" Hummmm... ME!! The saying on the wall underneath the mantle... found at Target last week-end on clearance! I am not usually much on wall words but LOML and I say this all the time, so thought I needed it!


Hope you enjoyed the tour! and the new look!
Leave me a comment if you LOVE IT.. AND IF YOU DON'T love it then don't rain on my parade!

Who would be so mean as to rain on your parade? Of course we love it. The patterns are fab.
Can't wait for you to come to Canton and my store in Malakoff.

Valarie,
Did you get the comment I left last night? I hope I didn't rain?
The black and white certainly is you! It looks great and I love the shelf above your bed and your "window"

I love everything about your bedroom. The black with floral bedding is very dramatic and lovely. It makes me want to redo my bedroom.
