I started on my bedroom this weekend. This was what it originally looked like.
I toyed with the idea of putting a bedspread that had beach stuff on it, but then if I get tired of the beach theme (yeah, right) I would have to get a new spread. Plus most of the ones I found were comforters not quilts and I don't like that. But I was wanting lighter airy colors so I went with the blues of the sky and ocean and the yellow for the sunshine.
I got Allen this quilt to give him for Christmas. But when he got sick and went to the hospital I had a feeling he wouldn't be coming home and he always froze so much so I just gave it to him at the hospital as an early gift.
My friend Janis gave me a warm blanket for Christmas and I put it on the foot of the bed. The blue is perfect with the light blue in the quilt. I throw it on at night for extra warmth. I love it.
Allen owns two really nice kites that he always took to fly at the beach. We have a lot of fond memories with those kites. Once when their was a military base at the beach, we stayed on the end close to the airport on base. A jet was taking off when he was flying his kite and the kite was so high that the jet buzzed it a couple of times. So we bought this sweater one year for my bear, Ted E. I figured this would be the perfect place for him.
I blue up one of my favorite pics of us and put it on his dresser.
I still have more to do and a few other things to pick up, but it is a nice start.
