Vintage Chenille...


A vintage chenille bedspread in just the right shade of rosy pink for The Divas Boho inspired bedroom.
 
This one, a lucky find on eBay for just $15 is uncannily similar to the one I had at her age. It arrived a bit musty and dusty, but a wash, and a fluff in the clothes dryer has restored it to soft loveliness.
 
She loves it, and couldn't believe that 'in those days' someone thoughtfully provided extra length to hide your pillow. Isn't it funny that we don't do this any more and consequently there's a huge market in flash pillow cases and throw cushions.

We actually agree that this look is so neat and pretty by comparison, that we'll now be on the lookout for similar vintage chenille bedspread bargains.

Here's how the Boho Bedroom usually looks....

 
...and...
 
 
...but this is pretty for Winter here...
 
 
  A retro style cushion and boomerang pillow in blue, tying the scheme to her sky blue walls, and beloved heirloom bears and souvenir soft toys at her feet.
 
So sweet and feminine...
