Ahhh. NEW BEDDING

Don't you just love a pretty bed? It just makes me all giddy inside. If I can keep my kids from climbing up on the bed and messing it up I am more then giddy.....I am ecstatic! The problem....this beautiful red bedding is TOO HOT! I was throwing it off halfway through the night and the temperature hasn't even hit the summer highs! I had no choice....this beautiful red "winter bedding" needed packing up and I was now on the hunt for "summer bedding"


I really wanted to go with the quilted look. I searched for a month and finally found the perfect set on overstock.com. Me, being the indecisive person I am, had to get approval from a couple of my sisters and by the time I decided to order it....only one day later....it was out of stock. SO SAD. The hunt began again and I found something that was a little "out there" but could be cool. Too bad I forgot to take a photo before returning it. Why did I return it......because it looking like the the Brady Bunch showed up to decorate. The quilt was a lot brighter and UGLIER then it looked online! NO GO! Again I began to search and finally found this. I love it! The only down side.....they were sold out of king size pillow shams and some of the matching throw pillows but I was sick of shopping and decided to just deal with it. My next project......retexture and paint my walls. I am sick of the crackled look and the green doesn't match the new bedding anyway. Good thing it is summer and I have so much time on my hands!

wrong color green....right now the wall is a greenish brown crackle. This green is brighter. I am going to paint it a creamy, butter kind of color with a tan glaze on top. That way it looks good with both sets!!! SO FUN

I really like it!!!! It looks very summery! Weird to see it on Mom's bed but...oh well. Wish you could come repaint my room. I'm sick of the green color in there. I need something different.

I'm with Kate, take the time you have and come paint more of my house! Pretty bedding! I too LOVE a beautiful bed. But, with Dylan, mine NEVER stays that way, so most of the time I don't even bother!
