Bed Love

Recently a close friend of mine was telling me how she had spent the weekend shopping for bedding for her oldest son who is away at college.  She wanted to tweak his bedroom at home so as to entice him to come and visit once in a while.  He happens to be on Winter Break from Cal at the moment.
He obliged his mother while she enthusiastically pulled together several options to show him.
He patiently waited until she was through with her presentation and then simply said two words,
"think opulent".

Do you think he meant this?

Nice to meet you, Therese!

This bedroom is definitely opulent! And I love the idea you presented earlier about decoupaging designer bags on furniture. Some are so neat, but still, I never use them again.

How nice that he would even know to use the word opulent to describe it . Most boys would say sure that is fine. Or at least that is how it works in my life,he he, Kathysue

This is too funny. I think most college boys' idea of opulent is a frig with a built in keg lol. Have a wonderful week. Kathy

This is still one of my most fave men's shots ever. What a fabulous lot of color, texture, and testosterone!

Hi! I was going to let you know that the website listed on that post ALSO tells you how to make a 3 column blog - just in case you were looking to do that! AND rollover buttons! When I found it I was like...AHHHHH (that's supposed to be angels singing...)
