I mentioned in my last post that Dixie the Doxie doesn't sleep with me. Here is one of the reasons why.
I have been wanting new bedding for ages. The last new set we had was when Nick and I got married 8 and a half years ago. I loved it at the time, but my taste has changed and that old set was looking a little rough.
I absolutely love this. I take so much time making my bed every morning so it looks just like the photo on the cover of the package. Okay, it doesn't look just like the photo. I'm afraid I'm just not that good at arranging the pillows and my sheets are wrinkly. I'm not ironing sheets.
This little pillow came from our Spouses' Club's gift shop. I love it and I think it goes wonderfully with the new bedding.
Right before Nick left, we bought new dining room furniture. We have been looking at furniture for years...literally. I can never find anything I like. I know I frustrate the poor man to pieces, but, seriously, I have to love it if I'm going to spend a chunk of money..right?
We found this set. And I love it. Truly.
The china cabinet has lights in it. I rarely turn them on, but they are there if I want to.
This little buffet is one of my favorite pieces. I love the lines on it. If I ever have a dining room too small for all the pieces, I could easily use this as a console somewhere.
This table is fabulous. It's big and heavy and so grown up. I have six chairs now and two on order. There is actually another leaf that can go into the middle of this table so it can be really big. I have always wanted something I could put all my kids around. This is almost big enough!
This piece sits on my buffet. My friend Shelly made it and I love it! I do fancy myself the queen, and since the Engineers have a castle as their logo, I think it fits! I want a sign with this on it too. I will probably hang it in my kitchen.
I'm probably maxed out on new stuff for a while. Although, I must admit, when Nick is deployed I participate in a little more retail therapy than usual. Well, I'll be maxed out right after I find new window treatments for the bedroom. That's what that extra deployment money is for, right?
