nesting

My new bedding came in the mail today!

anthropologie oh to dream bedding

Isn't it lovely?  It's so cozy.

Just in case you're wondering, the pillow with the girl's face is from Vintage Jane.  My mom got it for me.  She knows me so well.  I made the other two small pillows.

I had to go to Bed, Bath, and Beyond to get Euro-sized pillows for my new pillowcases.  They are enormous!  And they come in verrrry slippery plastic packaging, which made carrying two of them nearly impossible.  Whose brilliant idea was that?  They slid right out of my arms three or four times.  One of those times was on the escalator, and I could just visualize how ridiculous I must have looked, which made me laugh even more.  Not my finest moment, perhaps, but highly amusing.

I've also been admiring these flowers in my room.

I love, love, love pink and yellow flowers.  My favorite bouquet I've ever received was made up of peachy-pink and pale yellow roses, with lovely little pink curlicues coming through them.  My parents gave it to me, it must have been after a school play or a chorus concert.  They were so wonderful about that, they brought me flowers after every dance recital, every vocal performance, and every school play.    Even when I graduated FIT with my Associate's degree, my mom gave me a beautiful yellow corsage to wear during the ceremony.

What's your favorite flower?
