Let the Sun Shine In!

I found a pair of the most cheerful vintage bedspreads a couple weeks ago. They are new vintage - tops are quilted and skirts are full and flowy. They flaunt the biggest, brightest sunflowers - just so fresh! I could not wait to freshen them up with a spin in the washer and dryer and get them on my Great Grandmother's bed at the cottage.

After Great Grandpa died and she got too old to stay by herself, she would alternate back and forth going to spend time with her children and had a twin bed at each house. It is iron and I believe it used to be black, but my sister-in-law painted it a creamy white. I use it in the spare room at the cottage and model my twin size spreads on it. The spread looks so cute on it, I want to keep it, but if you have ever been to the cottage, you know that I have WAY too many bedspreads for that bed alone. I will be selling bedspreads til the cows come home. LOL!!

These are listed in my shop.
Hope you guys have a blessed week!! Thanks for stopping in!!

There is something to be said of style that inspire as seen through the eyes of one with a cultivated perception, unfortunately I’m not the one best able to say it but I’ll say this. You my dear have an eye for the divine. I will follow with interest and appreciation.
