So, last night I was kind of playing around with the slideshow thingy. . .but here are the photos just as photos–with explanations should you care to know.
Victoria’s duvet cover. Pottery Barn Kids. We bought it for the colors and the flowers not knowing it had an Asian theme. With Asian people holding bamboo umbrellas while happily inhabiting pagodas.
Another chair. And what a COMFY CHAIR it IS!!! I HEART THIS CHAIR.
We inherited Tony’s maternal grandmother’s bedroom suite, which came with this lovely end-of-bed stool. Fabric is original circa 1934-ish.
White cotton matelasse bedspread on our bed–Penneys
More from Tony’s grandmother. She loved to buy bed linens to save for later. I think 40+ years counts resoundingly as later. So I pull them from their disentegrating wrapping and use them.
The top of Victoria’s rocking chair–the one we bought before she was born.
A lamp shade. Hobby Lobby.
Mirror–kind of Morocannish for my normal taste, but I LOVE it. It looks like tooled leather. Again with the Hobby Lobby.
Wall texture–half orange peel. Or so they told us.
Victoria’s sheets. Pillowcases and top sheet are ruffled. Shabby Chic. Target. Victoria sleeps in MY maternal grandmother’s bed.
MORE Tony’s g-maw. This is Thad’s bed. The head and foot boards are actually metal and have this metal caning mesh pattern with a single oblong medallion.
Thad’s quilt–chambray–solid top–feather stitch. Wal-Mart online of all places.
The metal caning mesh. This was actually a three-quarter length bed meaning it was too short for a modern mattress. We had to have the rails cut and lengthened to use it.
I like textures. And textiles. I love the smell of 100% cotton sheets straight out of my linen closet, and the PERFECT weight of the comforter I’ve had since my freshman year of college when I throw it over my bed in winter. I enjoy the cool side of the pillow case, and a fresh, fluffy towel.
The little things ya know.
