BLUE MONDAY


Sally at Smiling Sally is once again hosting Blue Monday. Check out her blog for a plethora of Blue Loveliness!!!


In an effort to spruce up things around here, I have been trying to work on our bedroom. I made a new dust ruffle and some pillows; and also purchased a new summer-weight matelasse spread in a yummy shade of blue.

I discovered that by ordering a full-sized bedspread instead of a king-sized coverlet, it fit our king-sized bed generously and was less money.

I love the raised paisley pattern!

Thanks for stopping by,
Sally

I have the white matilesse coverlets like your blue one in my guest room. They are such a good weight and practical too! Very pretty!

Hi Sally...

Just read your sweet note...thank you for coming by! My friend, I love what you've done to your bedroom!!! I love your new matelasse coverlet and that's got to be the prettiest shade of blue! I was looking at the pretty floral/paisley pattern on it...just beautiful! It's perfect with your new bedskirt and pillows (which I just love!)

Yes...the sun is shining here at my place too...so nice! No mud though...we've had such bad wind up here. I thought we would blow away for several days there...it dried up all of the moisture that we received! I really dislike the wind...it just makes me irritable! hehe!!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday, my friend!
Love ya,
Chari

I went out this morning and found my first red rose bloomed out on my knockout roses...didn't you hear me squeal up there! lol lol I ran back in and grabbed the camera!
