I don't think I've mentioned my favorite color in quite a long while. Well, I scored a pretty fabulous Robin's egg blue and florals quilt a couple of days ago, and I am so happy with how well it compliments my growing collection, that I had to interrupt my (seemingly never-ending) series on fall entertaining,
Let me back up a bit. For my last birthday, my Mom made me a beautiful quilt. I got to pick out the colors and fabric, (My favorite Robin's egg blue, with creams and shades of corals, pinks, and greens.) and then she worked her sewing magic.
Isn't it incredible?!
I then found a cute pillow on etsy that was a nice companion piece to my old Marshall's quilt...
..and I have been keeping my eyeballs peeled for more quilts and pillows in prints that could round things out against my white slipcovered sofa, and neutrals in my living/dining rooms.
Fast forward to this week, and I stumbled upon a quilt in much the same colors in an Antique shop. The price was great, but I'm on a watch-what-you-spend budget these days, and I had to debate a good long five minutes before I decided the regret I would feel would outweigh the budget pinch for the next couple weeks. (I can make my spendy hair and face products last a bit longer by using less, or adding a few drops of water to them, right?)
I think I made the right decision, because everytime I look at the new old quilt, I smile.
