I couldn't help myself. I checked out the linen rack at Goodwill.
After my non-vintage bedspread bust, perhaps a normal person
would know not to even look for another and just give it a rest.
Ha. Like I'm normal. I looked anyway.
What were the odds of there being a cool vintage bedspread sitting on the rack?
Pretty good actually.
She's Pretty. She's soft. She's a Queen.
I think it will be fun to cozy up and read a book on this soft spread.
The reason I'd gone to Goodwill in the first place is that my mom came to visit.
I wanted something vintage-y and homey for her room.
I'd bribed my son to give up his room for the week.
I wanted to transform Boy Sports Room into Homey Mom's Room.
Here's the reality:
Yes, I bribed my 15 year old to sleep on the couch. I paid him $20.I realize it's pathetic to pay your child to give up his room to his visiting grandmother.
But, you have to understand that twenty bucks is a small price to pay to totally avoid any and all complaining that a teenager can do. Worth every penny. AND it got him to clean his room top to bottom including drawers and closets. This is big.
He found an amazing thing- the floor.
I ended up throwing some vintage table cloths over a desk and nightstand to feminine up the room. I had about 4 hours notice to get her room ready. It was a surprise visit!!
On Saturday, mom returned home and my son returned to a Clean Room.
This all has nothing whatsoever to do with finding a chenille bedspread.
Hug your mom!
