It’s been so long since I posted, that WordPress gone done changed their uploader thingy. I had, in all truth, planned to write a lovely Christmas post here tonight seeing as how it’s, ya know, Christmas and all. And it finally dipped below 72 degrees in south-east Texas, so we can recognize temperature-wise that it is not, in fact, spring. The frost even got my vinca last night.
Anyway–it has taken me nigh unto all the time I had for blogging to figure out the new doin’s with the media device. Therefore, enjoy these photos from two Augusts ago.
Consider them the appetizer.
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.
*Update* Victoria no longer sleeps in my maternal grandmother’s bed. She decided she wanted more room in her bedroom, and so we put THAT bed in the craft room which gave HER substantially more room and me substantially less. HOWEVER. It works and has been great. Except now Victoria is 5’5 1/2″ and wants “more room” in the bed department rather than in the bedroom department. *sigh*
