Third Time is the Charm

If you asked my daughter she would tell you I have a problem not just with purchasing purses, but bedspreads as well.

She could probably come up with some fairly good evidence, but she is really WRONG. 

When I find the right one, I stay with it a VERY long time, but finding the right one can be the problem, hence her evidence.

I have not liked the bedding in her bedroom since her high school / college days. IT was bright and happy, but completely worn out from lots of teen girls and the doggies piling on it for long giggly conversations sprinkled with dog hair. 

Towards the end of college I purchased new bedding for the room and it was a beautiful set, but SO wrong for that room.

I made the second purchase which was very similar but darker. You can read all about that here.

One day back in May, I was strolling through Dillards...and there it was... a bright colorful set that I just knew was the one. I succumbed to the purchase. It was on sale after all.

I have loved it!

It will be there for a long time. 

I haven't shared it until now because the room was full all summer of Lindsay and Tyler's stuff.

Here is the one that makes me happy again and fits the room.

I moved the bird picture back above the bed.

I have quit thinking I will move the white bookcases. They will remain there simply because they are full of memories and offer great storage.

Maybe a granddaughter will one day want them and maybe not.

Oh and I moved my landscape picture that has been in my possession forever. My parents purchased it in Germany when I was a baby. 

I have always obsessivley loved it.

My favorite nap place might be in that bed looking at that landscape.

I am happy with the room now.

As for the other bedding, all is not lost. The first purchase after Lindsay's teen years is now in her guest bedroom where it looks great.

The second purchase is headed to the farmhouse where I think it will work well.

Third time really is the charm!

Now, all of my bedrooms have bedding that I love and am quite sure will be there for a very long time.

Nestled in coziness,

  1. I LOVE the bedspread! The colors are so pretty and go great with the room. Have a great week!

  2. It is beautiful Sandy. I just got a new white bedspread set for my guest room and the old one will go to the little house. Like you, once I settle on something, I keep it for a long time.
