I bought a new quilt from Overstock.com. My last one was cream colored also but someone was playing with a ball point pen and you know the ending of that story. Why was that someone playing with a ball point pen while sitting on our bed? I have no idea, but I DO know I love my new quilt.
I also sewed (I mean glued) some ball fringe on my plain old canvas curtains, something I have wanted to do for about 3 years. They give them a little more formal, finished look.
In Abbey's room, I hemmed her cheapy IKEA curtains, and bought a new lamp from Target.
My favorite little project was to hang this beautiful new frame sent to me from The Sprig Framing Company. I love the distressed edges and soft color. At first I put this quote in it:
And then I got back from Seaside and printed out these four pictures I took.
And decided on the path to the beach.
And yes I know that those two choices (the quote and the dreamy Seaside photos) are telling my little brain the opposite message. But for now, I'm going with Seaside.
Here are some more frames from Sprig...beautiful! Bryan is the man behind these frames and began making them after his wife Tracey (of the shop Tiny Sprouts...the tenderest lovely baby clothing) began taking tons of pictures of their son. He began making her the exact kind of frames she wanted but couldn't find, and then everyone else wanted them too...hence the shop.
