This week my favorite thing is my bedroom. By the time I graduated from college and was able to afford my own furniture (I lived in a furnished apartment for many years), I was almost 30. Taking a page from my mother's life, who had bought her first new bedroom set at the age of 30 (one which she still uses today), I pretty much decided that whatever came home was going to be around for awhile. So I bought exactly what I wanted (I was a successful single working girl at that point, so there was no spouse to exercise veto power).
My bedtime reading pretty much ensures I dream of quilts. Then there is the ric a rack on the chest and dresser:
|Fan from Indonesia|
|My baby and a candle she made|
|Lady Bug box from Kiddo|
|Bull Frog (my guy's)|
There are lots of other things with special memories; our engagement pictures, our wedding announcement, and a big jar of change. A framed scrappy 4 patch pieced shape of TX (it didn't photograph very well or I'd have shown it), a glass Chinese ornament and a more recent photo of kiddo also sit on the chest. It's not fancy, but it's home.
Hop over to Quilting in My Pyjamas to check out this week's assortment of favorite things.
