~NEW QUILTED SPREAD MAKES ME SMILE~

Bedspreads are something I seem to keep and keep for years and every time I make the bed I swear I'm going to buy a new one.  YES!  And soon..but I don't.  When I finally say..that's it, I'm getting a new one and go on the hunt for one, I can't find what I want.
 
For one thing, at my ripe old age I still haven't a clue who I am!  (I have GOT to stop saying that because when I'm 80 I'll look back and think how young I was.  I never, ever learn!)
So..as I was saying, it's hard to find what I want. 
I finally chose this one...
 
I finally chose this one..I found it on Amazon.  I have a California King bed so it's always a challenge finding a quilt to fit and though this one was not a California King, after I read the comments on it, I gambled and it worked perfectly! 
I found the afghan (pure white and just beautiful) on ebay and got it for $10!  I love it.  I found it about five years ago, it washes beautifully.  All hand crocheted.  I felt sort of guilty when I won it. 
The roses I found at a thrift store and they are old.  They are made of some sort of neat woody like material. 
I could have done a better job making that bed..heavens!
 
I found this old trunk in my best friends attic when she bought her house.  That was in the late 1960's.  She wasn't into an old rotting trunk at the time..and I was.  Took it home, aired it out in the sun for a few days and wall papered it witha scrap of paper someone gave me.
  It got pretty banged up after my last move and  I need to touch it up.  I probably won't..but I should.

The quilt was very inexpensive and the blocks are no just a print..they are actual quilt blocks. 
The quilting is done in a pretty pattern.  Very generously sized too.
 
Ok...that's enough thrills for you!  :)  Can you tell how well I prepare for picture taking?  Ah well...
 
 
Lov'n hugs,
Mona

  6. I love it!

    I know who Mona is. She is a gentle, sweet, kind lady who never wants to make a ripple and would give you the shirt off her back if she knew you needed. I know, that wasn't what you were talking about. Who says Mona can't be a different lady every day?
    That would be fun.

  9. I remember the quilts we had at home, made by my Mom with her own two hands. When someone/friends got married or had a new baby, my Mom always made them a quilt. I still have 3 of her quilts. This is indeed a beauty and looks so elegant Mona. Great choice for your bedroom.

  11. Your bedroom looks so cozy with your pretty quilt and white crochet afghan on the bed. I like the trunk, too. Everything looks perfect to me. I love handmade quilts and have a few from my grandmas. It got down in the low 20's here night before last. I thought to myself, I'll put the new quilt on the bed. Then it occurred to me that the new quilt is more than 38 years old. We received it as a wedding present. I don't take very many home decor pics for my blog, because there is always something dumb or messy in the way of a good picture and by the time I get it cleaned up or put right, I'm completely out of the mood/time to take the picture.
