Awhile back I was in a junk shop (big shock, I'm sure ;) ) and as I was looking through a bunch of blankets and pillows from the 1980s, I came across a chenille bedspread.
It was white with pink, green and yellow accents and my heart skipped a beat.
I'd been looking for the perfect one for my bedroom and this was just too good to be true.
It didn't have a size and it didn't have a price tag.
Would it fit?
How much was it?
With anticipation and hope in my heart, I went up to the shop owner and asked.
She told me it was a queen (Perfect!) and that it was 50 dollars, but because I had purchased some other things before and because there was a couple of tiny holes in it, that I could have it for 25.
I practically threw the money at her and ran out of the shop lol
In reality, I thanked her so much you would have thought she had given me a priceless antique.
Well, maybe it's not an antique, but it is old and besides, it's priceless to me ;)
Before I take it off my bed for the cooler months, I thought I'd show it off.
Sorry about the rumples, but Bubba kept playing around on it, before I took the pictures, and every time I tried to smooth it out, he thought it was a game :)
Here it is kind of smoothed out...
I know no one makes their bed like this anymore, but this is how these covers are supposed to be used.
Besides, I don't really do anything like anyone else, now do I? ;)
See how the design matches up as it goes over the pillows?
I LOVE it!
And so does Bubba ;)
In fact, every time I make my bed in the morning, I'm still doing a little happy dance :)
Have you finally found something you've been looking for recently, that makes your heart skip a beat?
I've been busy catching up with all of you, but it's taking awhile, so please have patience with me.
I will get there.
I promise :)
