The Quilt's Secret

Seems like there's never enough window covers, huh?  I've started using quilts.  I don't have the time or extra mullah to make anymore curtains and quilts are great for winter time because they make the room snuggly warm.  I put this quilt up a couple of years ago with a staple gun (so elegant) discovering one of my favorite treasures - a hidden or "secret" quilt.  

It was covering another more colorful quilt.  As you can see, during the day it lights up like a stained glass window revealing the "secret quilt."  

I am now converting our "formal dining room" into our  bedroom so that our old bedroom (the size of a closet) can become Logan's nursery.  Since I'm short on funds I have to make do with what I have so I've decided on vintage eclectic (I know, so original, right?).  I found remnants of an old white slip and used them to make tabs for the Secret Quilt.  

Follow me as I transform the room (it may take a while since I have a 10 month old) into our new "master" bedroom.  Please send helpful and encouraging comments my way!

Accidental pic

I was trying to take a pic of the candle and ended up with one of my favorite pics ever.  I just think it's lovely with my friend Janeatte captured by accident in soft candle light.

Fall Foliage and the Forgotten, er, "Secret" Garden

Two friends stand side by side.

I really am going to get around to putting them in the garage and refinishing them.  No . . . really . . . maybe.

Welcome to the jungle.  This used to be a garden.  Now I can't find the path.  I call it my "Secret Garden" that way I can romanticize the obvious fact that I need to find my paths again.  How fitting for my life right now.

I don't know what they're called but everyone loves them so I took a pic.  Here you go everyone!!!
