I just got back from the movies-Verrrry unusual for my husband and I to go to a movie alone! We usually see a family movie or wait for the video! But, this time I was "asked" to go see "Valentine's Day"! It was very sweet and full of beautiful people! (Ashton, Topher, Patrick Dempsy, Bradley Cooper, Eric Dane...oh and pretty girls, too) It reminded me of "Love, Actually", which I do like. Hey, it is not going to get the Oscar, but I laughed and smiled and -so it was good in my book. With the coming attractions, they showed many clips of many of my fave movies set to "1,2,3,4," by Plain White Tees. -When Harry met Sally, Enchanted, Say Anything, Princess Bride, 27 Dresses-cute. It is here as an ad.

Now for my room. We painted Phillipsburg Blue by Benjamin Moore a while ago! I love the color and we will put up crown mouldings-eventually. I haven't hung anything-except the one picture over the bed-while I wait to do this room!
I was waiting to get a new mattress to get new bedding, but it is on hold, too. So, on a one day sale at Macy's with a coupon that actually worked (!!!!) I got a new mattress pad, and a down coverlet.
I just put those on the other day and my husband says it feels like we are in a hotel-a good thing. Then I brought home this from Target
becasue I like this.
But on the bed it looked too undone for me....I like things more conservative/simple. The buttons were shiny. It really was ok but I felt it was a younger look than I should have. I saw a white matelasse coverlet at TJMaxx and the shams called "Cecelia" and I liked. I put it on the bed and I think this is it...what do you think? Simple but pretty?
I got these pillow covers at Pottery Barn on a great sale, and was not sure of the color, but maybe I like it now...A little rosey color for now?
(The embroidered pillow is from Hungary from about 1920 from my grandmother-she came here in 1914 right before WW I and was married here in 1917 she either brought it or it was sent to her. I restuffed it)
Here Hooked on Houses said to show your house a little love and her pics were of homes with a touch of red. I am not a red girl, but I think it looks nice with the white and ok with the blue. Then, I could do blue toile pillows for spring?
Do you like this or look for something with a print?
We live on Long Island in New York State. Go 1 hour east-Montauk. Go 1 hour west-NYC. Twenty minutes north-beach and twenty minutes south-beach! That's what we like about LI! I am married 27 years to my college guy and have 3 wonderful children and one somewhat crazy but sweet yellow lab.
