A bedroom story? I bet I got your attention! Well. . .since February is the month for Valentines. . .I thought I would share a little story about the black and white framed picture from several years ago that John found at a thrift store for a couple of dollars. . .It was a gift for me. . .and I couldn't have been more touched. . .As I pulled the wrapping off, his only words were, "It's you and me at the Greenhow!" Sometimes he can be such a romantic. . .for it WAS a shuttered window just like the one at the Greenhow Store where we often stood and talked. . .Of course we were adults. . .and in 18th century costumes. . .but in those days of forming a lasting love and friendship, we felt young and free and full of wonder. . .
What a precious and treasured gift it was. . .I ran across it while doing my winter cleaning. . .I have a confession. . .I have quit spring cleaning. . .instead I clean during the cold days of winter so I can enjoy the warm weather when it comes along. . .I take it room by room. . .removing everything. . .dusting and scrubbing. . .even vacuuming the walls. . .washing drapes. . . linens. . .nothing is left untouched. . .Along the way, I find decorating possibilities. . .I never know what might pop up. . .but once I found this treasured framed picture, I knew the room decor had to compliment it. . .done quite simply. . .black and white. . .vintage. . .family. . .
It all came together pretty quickly. . .with a less is more attitude. . .
And a sign hung on the wrought iron from an old screen door says it all.
WISHING A HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY TO ALL. . .
REMEMBER THOSE YOU LOVE AND HOW PRECIOUS THEY ARE!!!!
