Giving The Bedroom A Spring Lift

In winter I love the cozy, rustic look of our black bear ensemble, but, with the arrival of spring, I felt that it was time for something new...something cool and more suitable for summer. 


1950's Reproduction Chenille Bedspread
When I saw this I knew it was the perfect thing! 💗

This 1930's Waterfall bedroom set belonged to my great aunt, Tootsie. When she passed away my mother inherited the set and, when both of my parents were gone, of course, it came to me. 

As a child, I always remember seeing this set of furniture in Tootsie's bedroom. The bed always had some pretty chenille bedspread on it and a set of collie dogs like this one.

After my mother inherited the set, she always talked of getting a pretty chenille bedspread for the bed, but never did. When I saw this one, offered through Vermont Country Store, I decided to go for it! 


1950's Reproduction Chenille Bedspread
I love spring flowers and wanted something pretty and pink to tie in with the sage green walls. My mother always wanted a chenille bedspread and Tootsie always had one (or more) during my growing up years. This bedspread just seemed to fit all the way around, so, I ordered it!

To round it out, I purchased a set of white sheets and a pair of rose-printed pillow shams for our top set of pillows.

(And since this was only the second or third set of bedding that we've purchased in 30+ years of marriage and since it wasn't going on a credit card, I didn't feel too bad about it, either!). 😆

How about you? What spring lifts are you giving the rooms in your home? 🌷

Until next time...

  1. Your bedroom with the lovely chenille bedspread felt like a step back into time. I could almost smell the fresh lilac scented air coming in an open window. I looked for a Collie dog on your bed, too. The collie was cute. Was the one you showed the one your aunt used to display on the bed. This is my favorite style of decorating - homey.

    1. Thanks, Susie! I know! My cousin came up last night and when I showed him the room he said the same thing. Said he felt like he had stepped back in time or was in a "Tootsie museum" or something! LOL! And I do have lilacs blooming in my yard, but not near my bedroom window. What a great idea! I think I'll plant a new lilac nearby! As for the collie dog, no, it's not one of my aunt's. It's just one I found online that was like it. I posted the link to the seller, but I think that it's already sold. I should look for one though! :) Thanks so much for stopping in and commenting! You just made my day! Blessings for a Happy Easter! <3

  5. Ha-ha! I bet my old cat (19 years old) would like it, too, but I'm not letting him near it! LOL! Blessings for a Happy Resurrection Weekend! <3
