I don't get a lot of company. That might be because it's hard to find the bed in the guest room. The bed is usually just a repository of
junk er, wonderful vintage finds.
But I cleaned off the bed so I could show off this pretty pastel quilt that my Mom made for me. Most of my house is darker colors, but my guest room and craft room are lighter and brighter. My pillow shams were made from vintage table clothes by Betty. My dolls were made by my Grandma many years ago.
Of course, all those "wonderful vintage finds" had to go somewhere. How about here.
Actually that's only part of the stuff that was piled on the bed.
There's lace to sort.
The wisk brooms and letters are going to the antique mall.
On a different subject- this ISN'T junk...look what I got in the mail.
My own little watercolor Christmas card from Karla. I just love the combination of the single sparkly ornament in the nest.
We spent Christmas day at Karla's Cottage with Sugarwings
and a very expectant Twinkle. ( I borrowed these pictures from Karla)
Sugarwings favorite new saying is "I'm not crazy anymore". Her mom thinks it's a variation of "I'm not a BABY anymore". My husband really liked it- so now he won't stop saying "I'm not crazy anymore"...but it might make ME crazy.
Karla had a Christmas present for me in this great box.
These beautiful, "sparklier than seen here" earrings. Karla's sister bought all Karla's sisters earrings, and Karla thought I needed sister earrings, too. How sweet is that? She also gave me one of my favorite china stencils buttons packaged on an old button card.
The stencil button inspired me to write a little post about china buttons on the Button Floozies Blog. Check it out if you like buttons, too.
