i have been wanting to redo our bedroom for forever, but could never quite find anything that would incorporate my motley collection of antiques along with my retro sense of design. well long story short mom and i searched and searched and searched and shopped and shopped and shopped and found NOTHING!!

it was so disappointing and then we looked where i NEVER shop (mom's idea)KMART!! yes we still have kmarts in abilene and found everything i wanted. mom was super supportive of my wild room and helped me put the look all together. (THANKS MOM)

i put the whole room together while jere was at work (including painting) to surprise him. and he LOVED it.

he is the best, but i knew he would like it because i ask him a long time ago when we first married and were looking for bedroom stuff what he liked and if he would have an aversion to something feminine. his response?

him-"will you be sleeping with me in it?"
me- "of course why wouldn't i be?"
him-"as long as you are in it, i don't care if has sesame street on it."

did i mention that i really like him alot?

have a great week,

It looks great! I love the boldness of the wall against the sweetness of the bedding. :)
