I love my dreamy bedroom and in the winter the sun shines in low and warms the room.

I want to thank everyone for taking the time to comment on my post about the old quilt. I got so many great suggestions and a few warnings about how to care for old quilts, too. I will remember these. This quilt had been washed before and the stuffing had already ‘clumped’ but it’s good to have the information about the care and handling of old quilts. One thing I know, I don’t think I have the heart to cut it! But I’ll try to do something with it and post it when I do! THANKS girlfriends!!!

Are you having a sun shiny kind of day?

Your heart pillow is just perfect. The girls are home from school today. We had our first major snowstorm last night. Snow continues. Sledding is on the agenda this weekend!

I have the same crochet square pillow in my sunroom. We got snow Wednesday nite into Thursday morning. Just a couple of inches but it stuck. It's cold at night now.
Have fun in the Florida sun.
Hugs,
Susan

The heart pillow is very cute. The room looks pretty with the comfortable chair and pillows with the sun streaming in like that. Thanks for rubbing it in about the warm weather. It is in the 20 degree range here with a light snow. I would be jealous if you weren't so nice!! Get out in the WARM sun and play a round of golf or something while I try to keep from freezing. Heehee------Shannon

Your pillows look so nice and comfy on your bedrooms chair ,the quilt is real pretty if the fabric is to fragile I would use iron on interfacing to make it stronger and then put new batting and tie it and use it ,it will add some color to your chair good luck with it whatever you decide to do.

Love the pillows..especially the Heart one. I am happy that the sun is shining by you..it is cold and wet and nasty here. I knew it wouldn't last long with us having nice weather at the beginning of the week. Check out my sale in my selling blog if you get a chance. I have a few pillows and will be adding a few more soon
Have a great week end and stay warm
Hugs
Nancy

Vicki said...

How sweet that you found a heart pillow this time of year!

Dayle said...

"Sweet" is the perfect adjective for the pillows. I have an ivory colored one like the heart. Love it.

Now I'm off to find that post about an old quilt ... one of my obsessions.

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Flea Market Makeovers said...

Anne said...

Love the slant of sunlight coming into your room, looks so inviting!

The French Hutch said...

We've had lots of rain, now it's beautiful and COLD! I know you must be happy to be in FLORIDA, my son and his family live there and love it. Love the heart pillow, so pretty. Cozy is good even if you're in Florida (I'm green with FL envy). I think the quilt looks great after you rescued it.
Hope your enjoying the weekend.

Birgit said...

Hi Diane,

First of all, thanks so much for leaving comments on my blog. That certainly makes blogging extra special! :)

Are you interested in winning a white cotton T-shirt with a pink heart and the words I ♥ Oktoberfest in size L? Then come over to my blog until Sunday, 22nd January, and leave a comment here . Might be still something for your Zumba class! :) By the way, guess who will go to her first Zumba class later today? Yeah! :)

What about having a look at my Advent and Christmas and getting an impression of Munich's Christmas market ? Moreover, you can see some frosty weather photos and pictures from a walk around my neighborhood on January 1st. Finally, there are photos of New Year's Eve . Of course, comments are welcome -- it's always great to hear what you think!

Have a wonderful 2012,
your blog friend from Munich, Germany,
Birgit
