my new room

does anyone remember this post? yeah, i didn't think so. well, our bedroom has been repainted for quite some time, but i have been reluctant to post about it only because the room still needs some attention. we needed new bedding (read bedding. period.) i have been on the hunt for that oh so perfect vintage quilt for what seems like an eternity. i got very lucky last week at one of the local antique markets. i found this jewel for just $22. i was not sure how it would work in the room and it was a little different than what i had been searching for. but, when i got it home and put in on the bed, it was love. instantly. there are so many fun fabrics and colors...
i mean, look at this scottie! right next to cowboys and an old coffee kettle?
i truly am in love with this quilt. and it makes me so happy to see it in the room. i feel like i finally have some direction for the room. and i love it with my little glimpses original on the table.
yay for me!

Love it--then and now. It was one of those things that immediately upon seeing it on the bed you know that it is the one. Sounds like "love at first sight."
