~White Wednesday # 120~

We've been hit with some blustery weather lately which makes me want to stay inside and decorate.  So this morning I started some soup in the crockpot and got busy changing a few things in my bedroom.  This room has been so neglected with piles everywhere even though I've envisioned how I'd like it for a while now.

My goal today was to share with you the lovely ruffled prairie style bedspread and pillows that I purchased way back at the beginning of the Summer....sorry it took so long Shellagh.  This has got me started on this room and am now excited to keep working on it.  I will share more photos as things are completed.

I can't tell you enough how much I love them:-)  I think they are a perfect fit for all my other bedroom decor.  The perfect amount of ruffles in a creamy soft fabric......yum!  This is a white rosary I just found sitting on a couple french bibles.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I think it is fitting to feature Shellagh's blog and linen shoppe today...Ticking and Toile.  Some of you may already be familiar with her, but if you are not, I'd advise you to get on over there and check it out:-)  She is a talented seamstress and has  some great stuff for sale.

We met a couple years ago and have stayed in contact and try to get together when time allows.  She has made some great pillows, tablecloth etc... for me and I couldn't be happier with all of them.  Here are a couple pics of her bedroom....love it!

  1. I LOVE your room and your new bed linens. I've admired that style for a while now, and was wondering how comfortable/practical it is? Do you keep a comforter or something under it? The style is lovely.n I've been working since Saturday on some white things
    I'll be posting later today! Thanks for hosting,

  12. Kathleen, I love the side panels of your bedspread. I have always loved that style and was delighted a year ago to find a vintage bedspread with ruffles like that in a violets print. It was so charming! Can't wait to see more of your room and thank you for hosting White Wednesday. ~ xo
