The bedrooms have evolved . . .
From duvets and a pile of pillows
To a matelasse coverlet with the duvet folded every morning at the bottom
And then Friday when I was in Pittsburg,
which is a favorite hunting ground of Friend Sally and I
we went to a new store
And were we impressed!!!!
Sally came home with an wonderful burgundy velvet covered Eastlake rocker
and I came home with a Bates hobnail bedspread
|The needlepoint pillow on the little loveseat is the first piece of needlepoint that I ever did!|
Which I put on the Master bed
I've been thinking that I need to change out the matelasse
And was thinking to change it out with a Bates
(for eons ago, the spread that I used was a Bates
and it was a good look for the room)
I love the old fashioned look of the Bates
And I think it gives the room a more vintage look
Of the three views of the room in this post, this definitely is my favorite!
The spread has roses
As does thew wallpaper in the master bedroom
A couple of needlepoint pillows on the bed to add some color.
It's interesting to see that what's old is new again!
I love Bates spreads
They wear like iron
They wash really well
(and I like washable spreads)
Now . . . .
I'm thinking I need a second --
For the bed in the guest room!
Next time we're in Pittsburg, we'll definitely stop at Serendipity again.
It's a shop full of treasures and there is definitely something for everyone!
It's not a large shop but I really prefer that
Quality over quantity!
