About a week ago, I packed away my "summer" bedding and decided it was time to add some fall back to the bedroom. I pulled out the chocolate brown bedding set that I bought last year at Macys. Last year, I loved it. This year, every morning when I made my bed last week, it just felt wrong to me. It pulled me down.
On Saturday, my husband came in the room while I was making the bed. I told him that the bedspread was depressing to me this year. Expecting him to roll his eyes and look at me like I was crazy, I was very surprised when he said, "me too". My husband had an opinion about a bedspread, this doesn't happen. Maybe the fact that we've had some months of "darkness" around our house, or maybe the beautiful quilts we got from his mother that don't fit any beds in our house are part of the feeling. Whatever it was, I told him that I really felt more in the mood for a light colored, cozy quilt on our bed. Less than an hour later, we happened to stop at Cracker Barrel for their front porch sale (I didn't buy anything). I went in to look at the Halloween decorations and saw a display of beautiful quilts. I didn't even know that Cracker Barrel sold quilts! Needless to say, my bed now has a different look that makes us both feel good when we walk in the room.
I am joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch for Met Monday.
Please stop in and say hello to our hostess.
