~Pillow Talk~

Hello my Dear friends, Boy have I missed you all....THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!! for all your prayers for Len...I am just blowed away by all the kindness I find here with my Blog family...you guys are the best....Len had his Angiogram done and they did have to put in one stint...He says he feels like a new man...I can not Thank God enough for giving me back my husband...
While Len was in the hospital I had to go Retail Therapy shopping don't you hate when that happens ha ha!! I just wanted to share with you my new ruffle pillow I found in Reno at their Home Goods store...I also hit a few other stores and got me some new flats, sheets, Capri pants, tops, jewelry,drapes, stuff for Candace's baby shower, hey I was really stressed lol!! and needed my therapy ha ha!!

I love how it looks on my bed with my 1940 Art Deco bedspread and shams don't you....It's like it was meant to be...

I found this bedspread last year at the Second Sunday swap meet...I just love all the flocking and Chantilly lace on in...that plus the fact that it is over 60 years ago and in wonderful shape...

This is my headboard that is over 9 foot tall...it's from ca.1880 and walnut and burl wood lots of cravings on it...also lot's of dusting ha ha!! And Yes it's only a double size bed...but hey I love to snuggle with Len so it's just great for us ha ha!!
I hope all of you have a GREAT weekend...I know mine is going to be wonderful...God is so good to me....Thank you all again...I really don't know what I would do without you great gals in my life...You Complete me!!
Until next time from my mountain to yours,
Hugs and smiles Glria

Loooove that cute pillow and hope our Home Goods has it also, sugar. But I'm happy Len is going well and hope it continues.

Hello Gloria! Such great news about Len. You have much to be happy about. That pillow is perfect with your beautiful bedspread. And that headboard! What a gorgeous antique!

Barb said...

Hi Gloria,

I am happy that all is going to be well with your hubby. Stints are a little scary (I think)but they make a world of difference.
Love your bed and all the fantastic goodies that accompany it. Retail therapy is necessary quite often-hehe.


Sue said...

Oh, such good news...I'm happy for you both. I hope you are also feeling better. I'm going to look for a pillow like that one at the HomeGoods where my dad lives. I have a feeling I'm going to be a bit stressed and need some retail therapy too. I don't have a frilly thing in my house, but I love that pillow!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Praise God, Gloria! I'm so relieved that Len is going to be okay! YEA! Such wonderful, wonderful news.

Now you concentrate on feeling better, too! I want you healed of that thing that's been pestering you. That's my prayer for you.



Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I am so happy for your husband, Gloria..and I know how relieved you must be. Sounds like he is feeling so much better. That's great for both of you.
You two have had a time of it!
Now...it's time for both of you to get back to your old selves...

How about you? You are progressing??? Not good that you had to worry about Len, OR he about you! Not good at all.
I am just relieved things are looking up...
About those pillows...PURE luxury and beauty!! What an eye you have girl!!!
Hugs and love,

Hi Gloria! Your new pillow is wonderful and looks great with your vintage bedspread! Your headboard is simply gorgeous! I would feel like a princess in that bed! I'm glad to hear that Len's health problems were taken care of. I hope that you are feeling better, too! Have a great weekend!...hugs...Debbie

Susan said...

Hi Gloria. I really am sorry to hear that your husband has been going through so much with his health. I am very relieved to know they were able to take care of it and that he is recovering now. Blessings to you both.

The bed is unbelievably gorgeous. The headboard is so ornate and lovely and the bedding... Gloria, it looks like it must be unbelievably silky soft. The pillow is an excellent addition.

Hope all goes much, much better for your hubby and you can both enjoy the rest of the summer time.


onlymehere said...

So glad it all went well. That bedspread and pillow are gorgeous! You do have an eye for beauty. I have to have a king-sized bed so no one touches me when I sleep, lol!

Madeline's Album said...

So glad to hear that Len is ok. Your shopping trip was a good one. The pillow goes well on your beautiful bed. Have a blessed day. Madeline

Barbara Jean said...

Hi Gloria,
This is all absolutely gorgeous!!

in regard to blogger changes. No, I have not gone over to ask blogger yet.
I am just at the end of my rope emotionally right now, and have to fume over it a bit, and wait till I have a good cleansing cry over life, then I will settle down, and get back at it.
It's just the straw right now. =)

hugs and blessings

Gloria, I am so sorry to hear about the health issues you and Len have been going through. Sounds like Len is doing much better and I hope you are too. Thanks for your visit and sweet comment on my Italian Pottery. I took a look at your wonderful kitchen and I believe you have me beat with your blue collections. Love the bed too.

Diann said...

Hi Gloria!

I am so sorry to hear about Len. But, thrilled to heare feels so much better!

Oh, that pillow is adorable! The Home Goods Store has the best stuff! And I love the bedspread and pillows! And your headboard is amazing!

It was funny when I read the words "chantilly Lace" because that is a song I have been singing to my 2 year old and she knows all the words by heart. Poor kid, all the other kids know all the latest songs and she knows The Big Bopper!

PAT said...

Good news about Len only needing the stent. J does fine with his and yes, he too felt great after having the procedure.

Love your new pillow. Your bed and bedding are gorgeous.

Have a wonderful week!

Unknown said...

I am glad len is ok. This might sound weird but i want to sleep in your bed.. I love that headboard and the whole bed makes me feel like a princess. lol.. I know i am weird. Dont worry i did not mean i wanted to sleep with u guys! lol.

Anonymous said...

I'm so glad to hear Len's doing great and will be around to snuggle with you for a long time. After I got past gooing all over the headboard and spread, I noticed your pillow. It does go fantastic with your royal decor. It sounds like you might be feeling better. I hope so. There's just nothing better than some retail therapy. You know, after painting those cabinets I think I'm in need of some of that therapy too. Take care, sweetie.
