I have happy place in my house I like to go to sometimes when I need a nap, or when I'm feeling down.
There are happy faces everywhere...
There's a friendly little gal that sits on the bed.
It's our vintage toy guest room.
In that room are little reminders from childhood,
when peanut butter came in tin buckets with handles.
There are little creatures with winsome eyes...
I finally have found the vintage quilt I've been watching for ...
for quite a few years. AMAZING, because it's just what
I've wanted, in the right colors and at a decent price.
And I found this one with all the right colors...
in the double wedding ring pattern.
It matches all the toys...and it matches the bed, too.
There's enough of the apple green in it that matches the bed...
And all those lovely intersections that make me woozy...
and if I was a little kid,
my Matchbox cars would be going in circles all over the place.
Isn't it perfect?!
All hand pieced and hand-quilted, in perfect condition,
just a bit of yellowing on the muslin from age.
I love the border pieces with the tiny squares.
There are so many different quilting patterns
that you can see on the back.
Making this red-gingham room an even sunnier place...
And we have had such a run of cloudy days,
and I found a puddle of sunshine,
so I laid on the floor in it curled up like a kitty cat,
but I was snuggled under a quilt as the sun shined on my face. And as the sun moved, I moved with it..
And as Uncle Si on Duck Dynasty says...
I was ... "Happy, happy, happy!"
