We don't subscribe to the neat bed look in our house. We all have doonas and whilst we try and straighten and smooth them each morning, it's not a high priority. I know my mum said a while ago that in years gone by it was a measure of how a woman kept house, a source of gossip "you know the beds weren't made!", so I'm making myself a potential target by not "dressing" this photo more.

Ella's bed is only a 3/4 bed and the quilt is a full single size, but we love the look of it draped casually over just the same.

your quilt is really beautiful - what a treasure!

{we don't make up our beds either - in fact, we don't even smooth the doonas ... so, this 'housewife' won't be spreading any gossip for certain!}

No worries about the bad-making. The quilt is lovely and that is what we see.
