Change Up For Sweet Spring Dreams








Fortunately all you need to change the mood of a bedroom is to change the bedding! I've put on a flowery quilt to celebrate the beginning of spring.



I've mixed a few lacy vintage linens in with a few more recent touches. The quilt is an old purchase from Pinecone Hill, and the Euro shams and throw pillow you may recognize from Rachel Ashwell.




No matter what colors you use as a base, white is always going to crisp things up for a nice fresh feeling. Here I am using a couple of mis-matched pure linen vintage pillow slips with hand worked lace edging.





A set of plain linen pillowcases, and another vintage crocheted pair stand by for when I want to freshen everything up without changing the whole bed.



Ready for sweet spring dreams. . . .







































It's time to take in a bit of spring air and hang the laundry on the line.
Delicious!

Have a great day!
Jacqueline

Jacqueline: I can smell the fresh lavender smell of your bedclothes hanging on the line. And how beautifully white and crisp are the linens, but I especially love the picture and the candle sconces over the bed. I can't tell you enough, without appearing to be a stalker, how I enjoy your posts..Judy

the vintage embroidered pillow cases are just gorgeous!! I made a flower girl dress out of a very similar pillow case for my grand-daughter to wear in a wedding. She had so many compliments on it. Sweet post!

Oh it's so pretty and romantic... i love your floral quilted blanket, and the heavenly white linens... and what you did with the oval frame over the bed with the other oval picture is so unique and sweet. That really grabbed my eye...

Hi Jacqueline,
This post is so dreamy. I cannot resist looking at such lovely linens and longing for more. I think that your bed looks beautiful. The only thing about lovely linens is that someone is going to hop in that comfy bed and mess them up!

hugs

I can almost see white sheer curtains billowing into your bedroom. What a pretty look for spring!

Hanging bedding outside to dry is one of my favorite perks of spring. Mmm, I love the smell!

That is just breathtaking! My linens only look that good fresh from their packaging. You've inspired my to get the starch out and start ironing right now - and that's NEVER happened before - lovely blog AND miracle worker - you're a genius!

Now I know just what I will be doing today! My florals go away for spring and summer and the white chenille comes out! It reminds me of spending summers on the cape at my Nana's!

Changing the bedding does transform an entire bedroom. And making it all a bit lighter for the change of seasons certainly lifts the spirits! Lovely linens, beautifully captured by your painterly eye.
