New Linky Party - Favorite Things Friday

Foodie Friday is no more.  

Due to lack of participation, I've decided to dump Foodie Friday.  On the weeks that I didn't go out fishing for linkups, it was only getting around 4 links.  Also, since this isn't really a food blog, it just didn't fit.  

Since I still like the idea of hosting a linky party, I'm starting a new one called Favorite Things Friday.  You can link up anything you want.  Projects, recipes, home decor makeovers, whatevah.  I'll be bringing back my Weekly Faves, but will only "fave" things that were linked up in Friday Faves. 

Some of my favorite things this week have to do with the bedroom makeover we've got going on over here at  the ole' Speckled homestead.  Charles has been busy tearing the nasty carpet out and laying the new pine laminate flooring.  We're He's using the same flooring we he put down in Han's bedroom.  It looks so much better in there already!

Anyway, the look I'm going for in there will be a shabby chic-ish look.  I want either a grayish paint color (Charles said no to light blue, which is what I really wanted) or a light brownish color.  As far as furniture and accessories, I definitely want lots of distressed and chippy stuff going on in there, but I really can't plan much until I get the bedding.  I'm in love with several that PB has right now and I can't decide what I want.  Most likely, the ones that are catalog or internet only will be cast aside for the ones that I can get in the store because I really want to be able to see them in person.  

Here are the ones I'm considering right now.

I'm not posting this because of the quilt on the bed.  I do like it, but I need a duvet cover.  I'm sharing this because I love everything about this whole setup.  Especially that shelf over the bed.

With this one, I could leave the drapes I already have, up and wouldn't need to buy or make new ones.

This one is probably my most favorite.  I just love the blue and gold colors in it.

I guess I need to decide if a want a powder blue like the one above or a dusty blue like this one.

Another blue.  I guess I'm probably going to end up with some sort of blue bedding.  :-)

OK, it's your turn.  What are some of your favorite things?

There's really only one.  Please, please, please link back to the party so that others can join in.  Also, it'd be really nice of you if you could visit a few of the other linkups and leave a nice comment.
