I like the pretty rose-strewn coverlet shown here on the cover of the current issue of Bedrooms and Baths (from the editors of Romantic Homes). It reminded me a little bit of the coverlet on our guest room bed:
It's a vintage quilted coverlet I purchased on eBay quite a few years ago, with gorgeous roses and ribbons and polka-dots. As you can see, nothing on the bed matches - but I like it that way:
When I found a linen dust ruffle at a thrift store in the same color pink as the roses on the coverlet, I decided they needed to be together:
It is more of a blanket or a throw, really - not QUITE big enough to be a bedspread, but it just barely makes it, and covers the sides of the mattress. Works for me!
And it's SO pretty!
The best part about my guest bed is when someone comes to visit and sleeps on it. Last night my sister Lori was in that room - and Tina is coming next week!
P.S. Today marks my 2 year anniversary as a blogger. I'm happy to say that it's still fun for me - and I surely am grateful to all of you who read this little blog!
