A few weeks ago I was flipping through an L.L.Bean catalog and saw these two quilts. I loved both and filed them away for inspiration for future projects. (Like post-move at this point.) I especially love that triangles quilt – it would be perfect way to bust through some of my American Jane fabric stash. It particularly reminds me of this quilt, and looks a tad easier. So guess what my wondering eyes beheld when my mother-in-law showed me the newly decorated bedroom for her 2 youngest boys. Great minds do think alike. And have really good taste.
These are those two boys, my husband’s younger brothers. They are pretty much the perfect uncles because not only do they like to play Wii with the nieces and nephews like most teenage uncles, but they’ll also indulge them in playing “Star Wars” or hunting down bad guys, have squirt gun fights, teach them how to do cannon balls into the pool, and tolerate watching little kid shows. They also make my kids laugh like no one else. We’re so lucky to have them.This is what they looked like when I first met them 12 years ago. Their older brother was pretty cute too.
And because they have a wise and wonderful mother, she lets them add their own decorative touches to the place.
