Ooooo, I love me some new followers! Hey, wait a minute, it's not the weekend. I know that, duh. (And I'm not green. And you're prolly not orange. Well, unless you're an Ompa Loompa.)

And welcome to the 11 new anonymous followers and the 80 new subscribers! Can't tell you how much I appreciate your visits here:) And please do leave me a comment sometime to introduce yourself ...I'm kooky, but pretty nice most days. Except when I have to delete links from the Mi4M party. Oy.
As for questions, I had tons regarding the bedding and such in these pictures from this post:
Many of it was clearanced or found at TJMarshalls (can never remember which one), but I added links if they're still available.
The paint: Reflection by Devine Paints (in her Tide Pools Collection)
Floral and Stripe quilted sham: found at TJMarshalls (it was a long time ago, and I was never able to find more than just this one.)
Pale Aqua floral quilted sham: Walmart here (BHGardens)
Tan plaid: TJMarshalls (actually a bedskirt from Ralph Lauren's Prairie Plains Collection, still found on EBAY HERE)
Aqua stripe blanket: 4 yards of HEAVY fabric from JoAnn's (it was clearanced out 9 months or so ago, so not sure it's still available, might have been Christopher Lowell.)
Tan and Floral Pillows: Fabric from Hancock's (no identification, and it was on the flat fold table, got it back in the winter)
Shirred Pillow: I got nuthin' Can't remember. Maybe Target's Simply Shabby Chic?
Pale Aqua Quilt: TJMarshalls (it's over 3 years old)
I've also had many emails about my home situation, and though it's been a pretty emotional roller coaster ride, we're doing a little better each day. Working on home projects, blogging and homeschooling have helped to keep life ticking away and bring welcome breaks from the chaos. I will write a brief post soon with a bit more detail, but for now, thank you SO MUCH for your care and concern for my family.
And this weeks FaVoRiTe CoMmEnT came from GRAMS regarding my distressed dresser:
Okie doke. I think that about covers it. Don't forget to get your BLUE & BROWN ever-lovin' projects ready for the shindig on the 22nd...and feel free to add the button to your sidebar to help advertise. The code thingy is up in my sidebar....fiddle dee dee.
