One of the easiest ways for me to do some “fluffing” around the house is to change out my table linens and bedding. So this weekend I decided to put some new pillow cases and a new sham on our guest bed. Our guest bedroom is pretty small and half of it serves as my office which I haven’t gotten around to doing anything with (it’s hard enough to keep the top of my desk tidy!).

I love embroidery! It’s really something I want to do more of (if I only could squeeze a bit more time out of the day!). I especially love hand embroidered pillowcases. My husband is not so keen on sleeping on them so I reserve them for use in my guest bedroom. We don’t have overnight guests that often so I can foofy that bed as much as I want.
I got that pretty quilted sham behind the embroidered pillows on clearance at Target last month for $3 something! Since it’s just a twin bed I don’t feel like I have to get two of anything, so I’m free to mix and match as much as I want.
This is the only room where I have a more “romantic” style. The other part of this room has pine furniture which needs to be painted white (more projects!)
I was going to show the mess that is our family room as that’s my next big project, but I don’t want to ruin a pretty post! I’ll show them some time this week. Also, some of you may have noticed the Ad Free Blog button on the sidebar. I’m not going to accept any ads or agree to write any posts about products for compensation. I will still accept books from publishers and review them. That’s just a personal choice and no reflection on those of you who do accept ads. Also, I’ve removed my sitemeter. I found that I was looking at it waaay too much 🙂 I want to blog about what interests me (as far as homemaking is concerned) and that’s more than decorating.
To the person who emailed me and anyone else who feels the same, I’m sorry to disappoint any of you that were expecting this blog to be like my former blog (which was all decorating and lots of projects). But I have to keep it fun for myself otherwise why do it – right? Also, the other blog was on Typepad and that blog has been deleted so there’s no way to access previous posts. The only way to see old projects is if I do a new post about them on this blog. Which I have done in the past and I’ll continue to do now and then. Ugh!!
