and speaking of winter beds...
I find it a bit difficult to marry an ocean theme
to a winter theme..do you?
but I am so enchanted with water and all that implies
I love shells and beach wood and the endless beauty and mystery of an ocean
and I especially love the calming color of a distant mist
so I knew this room would be perfect for just that sort of thing!
do you remember us water staining these boards one by one?
boy howdy I sure do!
let me take you back
oh no...this is not the beginning...this is the tidied up version of the beginning
do you see over there just where there's a bit of a step up?
when we were taking this old apartment apart...well...we found a
I think about it from time to time
and wish I would have kept it to go with our petrified squirrel we found in the walls
this is the view from the bathroom into the bedroom
after quite a bit of headway
do you remember the issue that our sconces were not measured for a bed?
only a mattress? so we had to get a queen? that really has not been an issue at all, glad to say!
I had these vintage linens for nearly ever
carrying them around with me all over
(this means the entire nation in Texas slang)
so I could match stuff with them
this is the duvet cover for our fluffy down comforter
which is something I insist on for every bed!
(overstock is the best! $2.95 shipping every day!)
these velvet pillows actually go to my sofa..glad I had the sense to keep them
I got my couch long before this bedroom was done!
so back to the winter ocean bedroom
I suppose all oceans also have winter, right?
so in the winter...this is what the bed looks like
ah yes...today...that will change...as the velvets and scruffy stuff will be put away
the sun is out, the air is warming
and the whites and lazy daisy blues
lightweight and summery
are about to make it onto that
wonderful queen size bed
for the season of summer!
