Tuesday’s Treasures

These treasures are from the late seventies and early eighties. Christmas Craft shows became real popular in these years and after our Josh was born I saw this sweet pillow covering that a crafter made. I ordered one for Joshua. When Daniel was born 2 years later I wanted one for him, too. Thankfully the same crafter was at a sale I went to. Sadly when Katie was born I didn’t find anything like these to have made for her. She got plenty of her own treasures and she knows Jesus Loves her, too, so I’m good with the fact that she doesn’t have one of these pillows! If you don’t have a pillow like this rest assured that Jesus loves you, too!!

I pulled these two pillows out at Christmas to add them to the beds set for each of our boys and their wives for their overnight stays. I’m sharing these this week since both our boys celebrated birthdays the last 3 days! They are both in the second half of thirty this year!

I’m linking up with Tom The Backroads Traveler for his Tuesday’s Treasures.

Metamorphosis/Blue Monday ~ Master Bedding

This week I’m combining Metamorphosis Monday with Blue Monday. Our bedding in our Master Bedroom was getting very tired looking and we found a pattern that both Dear and I could live with. Since the new bedding is mostly blue and green it made perfect sense to combine our two Monday events. I appreciate Susan at Between Naps on the Porch and Sally at Smiling Sally for their gracious hosting of these fun events each week.

Before…

A buttery yellow duvet cover and slightly lighter dust ruffle. Green and yellow accent pillows.

After….

When I first started looking for a new fresh look I was really discouraged at what I found especially the prices. I just couldn’t justify spending $249.00 for a Duvet set. We found this April Cornell Duvet Cover with two shams at Home Goods for $34.95. Now that’s what I’m talking about! Then at a different HomeGoods I found an April Cornell green sheet set with pillowcases for $29.95. The dust ruffle was $14.95.

Now I was on the search for some throw pillows to finish off the look. Again I couldn’t justify spending $20.00 to $50.00 a pillow. On Friday I made a special trip to the Ventura Main Street Thrift stores and was so excited to find these three pillows, 2 blue, and one green for $4.95 each. It was like they were just sitting there on the shelf waiting for me.

 

 

We’re enjoying our new fresh looking Master bedding.

To see more Met Monday visit Susan here and to see more Blue Monday visit Sally here.

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Photobucket is holding all my photos I stored with them from 2007-2015 hostage unless I pay them a lot of money. I’m slowly cleaning up many posts from this time period and deleting their ugly grey and black boxes with a ransom request. Such a time consuming bother.
