Good day my sweets! Happy Monday to you. I have been feathering the nest. Quite literally actually, as in I have added a bunch of feathers to my
Look at this bedroom decorations update, my Juju hats have found a new home:
That bare wall over my reclaimed wood headboard was a sore point for a long time. This is the focal point of the bedroom, straight across from the door in which you enter, or look in. The headboard was doing a good job at providing some interest, but that wall was just too big for the headboard alone. Now it has some company and I think they go well together.
All those neutral colors together make me smile and happy. And I think the bedroom is the best place to smile and feel happy ;-)
I got some new bedding too. Did you spot it? I found it a couple of months ago. I really did not need any more duvet covers. I’ve got duvet covers spilling out of the linen closet as it is. But this one stuck to my fingers anyway.
It was dirt cheap, so that kind of helped to talk to my conscience… (and get that raised eyebrow of my Love down again)
But most of all it was flannel. I haven’t had any flannel bedding since I was a little kid. I had missed it
I remember my flannel sheet from childhood vividly. It was yellow, with flowers all over it. I loved it dearly. I loved it all the more the longer I had slept in it. When I think back I can still recall that feeling of disappointment when I went to bed and my mom had changed the sheets… The horror! My sweet, soft, velvety flannel sheet was in the wash and I had to survive sleeping with cotton. LOL
Clearly as a child I had not learned to appreciate the allure of clean sheets….
I do now! Especially when they are clean flannel sheets….
These are roses from the garden. Frost is predicted here, so I snipped all the last ones off real quick. That bush just kept making flowers, not as lush and bountiful as in summer but still, there were roses to be enjoyed until January.
I know these ones won’t last that long, but boy, do they look nice on my nightstand.
I am so happy with this little bedroom update. It is finally feeling like it is coming together, and I might actually finish it soon.
Then again, I am already plotting a rather intensive makeover too….
Ah well, it is keeping me off the streets….
Too bad it is only Monday morning, I feel like crawling back in…..
So what have you planned for this week? A little bedroom decorating in your future too?
And do you have flannel sheets memories?
