I, for one have no strictures on how big I like to dream. So, for my *dream house* I like to look at the Horchow Collections
When I was a little girl I had a bedroom sort-of-like-this, but without the canopies--desk and all.
But...I had always wanted one like this,
Of course my parents would not hear of it.
Now, I'm thinking...I could do bedroom #2, but I would have to clear it with DH. I'm sure he will like it, and would not be opposed to it, if I could find some fabric like it in a garage sale...(ha, ha)
Hey, I can dream! You go ahead and dream too.
My whole point of this 'dreamy' post is to make reference to the *new* style of bed spreads.
Had you noticed? A top which covers the mattress, with an attached ruffle. This style is so doable! Quilts would take a lot less time to finish...and I could make more.
In my childhood 'everyone' had this type of bedspread. A one-layer one for summer and a quilted one for winter. But, both with the ruffle....something to consider. Thank you, Horchow, for the inspiration.
Before I forget, I also want to thank Hobby Lobby for not having disgusting, ugly, freaky to little children, decorations in their store.
I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday looking for double pointed bamboo needles, but they were out. However I 'had to' buy some DMC cotton #20 for a project that I have in mind.
So...Thank you Hobby Lobby for not having your store all uglied-up for the door-bell-ringing-by-children-day. (you may have guessed, we don't do 'pagan's holidays')
I'll leave you with this:
"And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you" 2Co 6:16-17
In His hands, ^__^
