If I am not sewing, stitching or quilting something gingham..
I am thinking of more ways to use it..
Well my desk needed some TLC and I did not have time
to strip it and paint it gingham so I padded my desk
and added this buffalo plaid.... in gingham of course....
The RIOT BOYS love it and no doubt will enjoy
it till the cooler weather comes and I can paint it in this pattern...
I know, I know- so obsessed, but really spending time in my office
is a highlight of my day, I get to sit here thinking of you...
and work on our plans for the future....
and yes I have a day bed in my office, I never sleep in it
I really use it when I want to draw or read..
and when I have company, they love the whole essence
and funny enough MEN love it too..
My brother in law will find any excuse to come
and spend time with us...he said this room just smells
and feels like a cabin retreat... FRESH AND CLEAN!
And believe it or not it is only 8 x 10 room...
Growing up in boarding schools MY ROOM
which was a closet became my sanctuary.
Ever since, I have always had one room in the house
that was my oasis from it all.
And think about it- if you want to be cozy
what a better place than a day bed, or a comfortable chair
at your desk...
My desk is made from the footboard of sleigh bed
a constant reminder of a beloved who left far too soon!
My cotton lace ruffle on the valance is from my Nanny's bed
skirt. Gingham curtains can only be from RBD gingham collection
and my bed cover is a hand stitched white duvet cover with
embroidered girl holding a berry...
and all of my pillows are special accents..
We are heading out for a few days, will tell you about
it when we return, it is very uplifting, spiritual,
heart warming event...
But you know GINGHAM will be very much in my
thoughts as I have plans to do some stitching en-route...
Design a perfect weekend...
create some memories...
YOU know I am actually excited about
the months ahead....
