AM I BLUE? YES I AM !



The dark colors are gone, and the Spring Blue colors are in!  
The blue Priscilla curtains, bedding and pillows all washed, fluffed, filled with the freshness of Spring ~ (even if I am a few weeks early).  Some paintings can be hung up, down or sideways. The frame I wanted to use was designed with wire to hang sideways and I didn't want to take the time to redo it ~ So "Love Comes Softly" is hanging on it's side, but I still think it looks nice.




The corner on my side of the bed holds my Spring Hat Box, the white pitcher of blue flowers,on a little embroidery scarf from the thrift shop, and the Teddy Bear has been in our bedroom for many many years.  It was given to  my dearest when he was in the hospital for his 5-bypasses (1996) and is a reminder how good God is with these bonus years.



Now you will have to click on the picture to see the details of the stuffed animals on the bed that belong to me.  The bunny rabbit I've had for many years, and the little teddy bear in the jeans was a gift from my grandson Elijah when he was about 6, he's now 17 and it's never left my bed.  And the little white dog looking out the window...is stuffed alright, but not with stuffing.  That's Molly, she likes that the new curtains leave the window wide open!  The dark sheers that were up before were hard to see through.

Can't wait to crawl in that bed tonight with clean blue sheets, and a new light weight down comforter under the spread.

I also changed the bathroom to blues...but that a little private for the blog!! HaHa

    1. Thanks Terra. I have three sets of bedding I've accumulated over the years. Two are spring, one winter..so I decide each Spring if I want to go blue, or use my old fashion quit bed spread. Blue won out this year.

  2. Everything looks so pretty, Wanda. I especially love the curtains. The rabbit and teddy bear are precious treasures but MOLLY is my FAVORITE! She likes her new "look out." Your painting shows up very well hanging over the bed. Have a good evening.

    1. Mildred, isn't Molly a hoot. She loves that corner of the bed, but was tickled today when I changed curtains and she could really see out!!

      I think the painting worked well with the color theme.

  3. Your bedroom looks beautiful, Wanda! You have me in the spring mood! The stuffed animals are so sweet, I saved some of my kid's cuties and then later gave them all away except 1 "special" one. I love your curtains, I miss having pretty tie backs. And Molly is a doll.

    I change my bedroom out a few times a year. Not sure what I'll do this spring.

    Happy Saturday!

    XO,
    Jane

  5. I love clean sheets too.
    And Molly looking out the window is just too cute. What do you think she sees out there?
    Sofie likes to look out the windows and give people walking down the road a good barking-at.

    1. I didn't see Molly until I uploaded the picture. She's not in the first one. She must have jumped up when I wasn't looking.
      She see people and barks too. Her entertainment.

  6. Ha. You're so funny! I remember you putting up the fall decor when summer was only half over. But with blooming and flowering trees out there, I can see how you would feel like spring! We're getting more snow tonight!

    1. Say it isn't so...Was in really in the middle of summer. I'm terrible...I guess I get bored easily and need a change. HaHa
      I do love the doves that come to eat and drink in the back yard.

    1. I took the electric blanket off, and added my new lightweight down comforter. I sure hope it's warm enough for my dearest. I sleep warm and he sleeps cold, but the down is warm. Looking forward to those clean crisp sheets.

    1. Thanks! I've had this bedding for years, and it had held up surprisingly well. It's quite a change from my dark brown bedding in winter. I was ready for the change and especially like the light with the open curtains.

  9. I does feel a bit like helping spring along, doesn't it, to make some indoors changes to lighter colours this time of year!

    1. Yes, it does. And if I recall you had some pretty yellow curtains in your kitchen. Color does make a difference.

    1. Well, mine too. Maybe because I love the ocean, and I love the sky....and I think God's favorite color is blue cause He used it the most!!!

    1. If you count Molly...Ha Ha.

      When I woke up this morning it was delightful to see the sun coming through the curtains and the fresh feeling in the room.
