Sweet Dreams

WOO-HOO, my new bedding arrived while I was in Washington! I ordered this bedding in May. Eight weeks later I hadn't received it yet. After calling the company and being told that they still had not received the fabric from overseas, I canceled the order.
I think someone forgot to do their job!
But now I am happy they messed up......cause I have a beautiful new 10-piece set!

The fabric feels like velveteen and the detailed trim is wonderful.
The pillows are really cute and the whole set is very heavy and well made. I am so excited!!!
My old set was really starting to fall apart. I'm sure we will sleep much better under this pretty bedding.
I have been hunting for a small dress form to hold my soldered necklaces for the Christmas Boutique. Today I was at HomeGoods (one of my most favorite places to shop) and found the perfect piece.
I think I would have liked it better if the body fabric would have been a solid color, but this will work.

Already I am missing my daughter and grandsons (husband too). Running errands, getting a pedicure and dropping off thank you gifts to the two neighbors who collected our mail and took care of our house, made the day fly by. But now the evening is quiet and lonely. I've gone through all my new magazines and even though I have a ton of ironing to do, all I really want is to cuddle up on the couch with my grandsons. I'm envious cause I know Hubby is doing just that!
I will leave you tonight with a picture of Mt. Rainer. This is what we looked at everyday from right outside my daughter's house. I took this the morning we walked Coleman to his first day of first grade. What a spectacular sight!!!
Wishing all of you a relaxing and enjoyable weekend. And remember to take a moment to honor those who were lost and their families of 911.
XOXO Nancy
