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...
