Roots Mine . . .
yep it is a great topic because I was planning to share my bedroom for Show and Tell so sit back and enjoy first my 5 minutes . .
Roots . . . when I think about roots the first thing that popped into my head was flowers and planting. I know you probably think well that is silly. But just this week I got to dig in the dirt with a few flowers. This has been my first time in about 3 years. And I so missed it.
I missed having flowers around my house and yard. My neighbor upstairs has the prettiest patio and I get to see her plants. And she is so sweet there is even a pot at the bottom of the stairs that I walk by everyday.
So yes flower roots was my first thought. Then my second thought was my roots where I came from and where I am. I am rooted in Christ. I am rooted in Christ because he knew me before I knew me. He knew me way back when I was 9 years old and he started calling me softly.
I am rooted in my family. And my family is rooted in Christ also. Jesus Christ called my Cowboy way back when he was a teenager.
And as I think of my ancestory roots I think different thoughts. I think of sadness. I think of questions about my grandparents and great grandparents. And even my parents and Cowboys.
And I pray that their roots began with Christ. Stop

My Bedroom reveal . . . Part One The Sneak Peak
Today I am sharing my bed. Last week I gave you a little hint about it. We had it custom made way back in about '98 I think. We had moved into our house and were ready to start decorating.
We were a little ahead of our time then and we lived in a neighborhood and not on a ranch so we kind of didn't fit in. But our Roots are in Texas and we are Cowboys and Girls at heart.
Here's our bed . . .
Call me weird I just don't like old ice boxes. This piece was originally in the den in the big house so it was kind of banished. But since all the down sizing it has been everywhere. In our main living area for one. I have finally gotten to bansih it to the bedroom. I am so happy.
Here's one last shot of the layers of throws that are normally on the bed. Now remember the first photo way at the top with the quilt blocks. And, the blue strip in the Pottery Barn pillows. Well all this is changing.
Yep the next time I show the bed I'll have all the new linens. The quilt finished and I'll share the story behind it. And a tour of the rest of the room.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour. Please come back soon. Actually would you come back tomorrow because I have something Huge. Yes I said Huge.
It really, really is Huge. It is about quilts. It is about shopping.
And it is really Huge
