Is it the weekend yet
because I really need to sleep in!
I feel like I have been going
and going and going.
My post title is Strike Two...
If you read yesterday's post
I talked about not really liking
my blue and white dishes
in the black dish cupboard...
Well, Strike Two came about last night.
I told you Mr. Beaux was going away
for the weekend right?
Well, last night he was doing some things
around the house for me before he left.
One of the things on the list
was to help me put on the new bed-skirt
that I had ordered from One King's Lane.
It had come in the mail while I was away.
|One King's Lane|
I was really excited when I saw
it a few weeks ago online.
It is the same fabric as my curtains
and pillow shams that I sewed.
I thought it would be the perfect finishing
touch to the whole room...
It's nothing like the photo online.
It's very seafoam green
not the pretty soft shades of blues
that I thought it would be...
We put the bed back together last night
and I thought that maybe I just needed
to get everything on the bed
before I made a final judgement.
I know that it is hard to tell for sure
by these pictures, but every time
I walk in the room I cringe!
I didn't even bother to iron it
because I knew I would be sending it back!
Of course in the photos
it looks like it's the perfect match.
Maybe I can Photoshop it in real life?
I am not even sure if I can return it.
It might have been final sale!
I will have to call and plead my case
to the wonderful customer service reps
they have working for them.
Well, thank goodness everything else
in life is going well!
Miss Beaux and I have big plans
for the weekend that involve
homemade ice cream!
Now that makes everything better doesn't it?
Until Next Time,
