I don't know about you, but I just love this song - isn't it great for Halloween? The name is "This is Halloween" from the soundtrack of Nightmare before Christmas. Booooooo to you!
So we bought a new bed a while ago and we hung swinglamps on each side of the bed. But I couldn't decide what fabric to use for the shades - so they hung there without anything covering them until Roger finally said, "can we cover these with something, they are kind of bright!" Well you know I HAD to do something! I looked and looked in my "stash" of fabrics and couldn't come up with any floral that would go with our new quilt. Then it hit me - GO WHITE! So here is one of the shades - Made from a white linen-like fabric,are ruffled and attached at the top but hang loose at the bottom for that draped look. Plain and simple and they look great in our room - now I have to finish decorating the rest of the room!
I plan on putting two more blue & white plates beside the one in the center above the bed. We painted the room a very light blue, and I fell in love with this quilt from PINE CONE HILL. I used an old white chenelle bedspread that I cut to make curtains to drape at the window; and bought two panels of white, very light curtains with pom-poms. These and the chenelle really does look good together too! Now I must finish the rest of the room. I would like to add some color for an accent, and was thinking about a red or raspberry. What do you think? I would love some suggestions!
Roger and I are in the process of painting my shop right now and my hands have white paint spattered on them that I cannot get off very easily! YUK! We are trying to complete the job before the really cold weather sets in. Hopefully we will have a few days above 70 degrees. I will show y'all a picture when it is completed - but don't hold your breath, it may only be done next spring!
Wishing you all a HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Don't eat too much candy or scare too many children!
