All I Meant To Do Was Buy A New Comforter
One thing led to another and now I'm exhausted. I don't care to think how many years my bedroom has been lavendar and white. That includes four different houses with different bedrooms but by gum I was stuck on lavendar and white. Sometime I was brave enough to change a picture or a curtain but it was lavendar or white. One day recently I thought you know I could buy a new comforter for my bed, so I did. Know what color I bought? Not lavendar, not white. Black background with big dots of white, lavendar, purple, and kind of a bright pink. (You know what they say old women can wear purple and dangling earrings if they want) so I bought black with bright dots. Now my lavendar curtain doesn't match my black comforter . When I took it down I notice there is enough dust on the blind to make a whirl wind. Wash the blind, wash the window, buy new black valance curtain. Too long, who wants a black curtain anyway? Package it up to take back. Low and behold I found an old one in a drawer that looks perfect, matches one color of the dots on the comforter. It is even clean so on the rod it goes and on the window. Ever hide boxes under the bed just until next week and next week turns into a year. Those boxes are dusted off and in the garage. Took all those lavendar pictures down and put up a black frame and added some black and white ceramic birds above each top corner. Tomorrow I'm going back to buy a cluster of black round mirrors to arrange behind the bed. Wow! I like it and in a few hours my room went from a little girl to a big girl and the room looks bigger for some reason. The white iron bed was left to me and my deceased husband by his grandmother. The bed is very old because when we were married in 1956 they celebrated their fifth and the bed was second hand when they got it. As I said all I meant to do was buy a new comforter.
