Sunshine In My Soul Today!

I love chenille!

 It brings such happy memories from childhood to my mind.

 I grew up in South Florida in the Sixties.
 Yes...I am that old! To get to my Grandparents house we traveled old Highway A-1A.

They lived in South Georgia.

 Along the way....
 [way back then].....
 there were touristy stores with beautiful chenille spreads on clotheslines! 

Purple ones with peacocks! 
Pink ones with flowers! Green, yellow and blue ones!

Is it any wonder that I fell in love with colorful textiles!

This week I started preparing our sunroom for Spring.

 During the cooler months I used the red chenille  and R Lauren linens to decorate this room.
If you would care to see how I decorated this room last Fall you can go here to this post.

But, since Spring is approaching I pulled out a buttery soft yellow chenille spread to bring a lot of wonderful sunshine to this favored place.

 Our granddaughters love sleeping in this room!

Added this yellow toile pillow to our white flea market chair.

Some yellow dishes and a mini quilt sewn from 4 inch squares.

I loved the circular pattern of this fabric so much that I hand quilted following the circles.

This adorable lemon teapot was only $1.50!

 Is it any wonder that this room has me remembering happy times? We used to sing a song in the church I grew up in. "There is sunshine in my soul today..."
Hope you have sunshine in your soul today as well!

Have an awesome week!

Blessings, Audrey
