After months and months of periodically looking for a new bed covering to replace the too small one that was about 10+ years old, I finally found THE ONE today at TJ Maxx. I truly don't know why I don't visit that store more often because I love all the housewares.

Even the back is pretty. I took this pic with my cell phone just to send to my daughters and thought I would do a post here with it. I absolutely love this quilt. I realized after I put it on the bed that I have several other items in our room with this same color scheme--robin's egg blue, pink, and lavender. I had to take down the burgundy curtains, of course, so I'll have to replace those. I'm thinking something lacy and white. This quilt goes good in our current room, which has lavender walls but it will also enable us to use different colors in our next house.

Yes, we are still in the process of trying to sell our home and buy a smaller one in town. After 6 months with one Realtor, when our contract was up, we switched to a different one. That was about 2 1/2 weeks ago and we haven't even had a showing yet. We went again today to look at the house we want to buy. The owners called to let us know that they had opened the pool and so we went to look at it. It's nice and the house is still the one we want. I can so see us living there, entertaining there, Nathan playing there. When I dream, it's usually either of Nathan and/or that house. Silly, I know.
