Summer Bedding ~ Grandmother's Chenille Bedspread

On sticky, summer nights, after baths and showers are done, how refreshing it is to fall into a bed that is cool and light. My grandmother’s yellow, chenille bedspread, along with some crisp, white linens, make a perfect pair for my guest bedroom.

What sweet comfort in the hot summertime.


Linking up with the lovely Claudia for


  1. What a treasure to have! Sure does look cozy and comfy...

  2. Hello Dear Dayle...I love chenille. It's a lovely material. Your grandma's spread is perfectly charming. Susan

  3. I have such fond memories of chenille bedspreads as there was one on the bed at the lake cottage where we stayed when I was a kid. I've always wanted one but never did get one. Lucky you.

  4. I like everything about that room.

  5. Good Morning Dayle, I would love to be a visitor to your home and stay in your guest room as it is so beautiful.
    It is so lovely that you have your grandmother's chenille bedspread to cherish as it fits perfectly into the room.
    I love freshly washed cotton sheets which have then been ironed and placed on the bed as it always reminds me of my grandmother's home.
    I have enjoyed my visit Dayle and I have become a new follower.
    When you have the time, it will be lovely if you visited me at Ivy, Phyllis and Me! as you would be made most welcome.
    Best Wishes

  6. oops, I am so sorry, I forgot to mention that I found you at Claudia's lovely blog, My Favourite Thing.

  7. So pretty-- you must not have dogs on the bed!! Tee hee...

  8. Can I reserve a date?
    I know I could drift off to sleep, like being on a cloud.

  9. Definitely looks inviting! Happy summer hosting! :)

  10. I agree...summertime, we put all the comforters, extra decorator pillows and anything heavy in the closet. I like a very light spread and I ADORE the old fashioned look of NO DESIGNER "stuff" on my beds....I want mine just like the ones I grew up with....:)

  11. How great for you to have your grandmother's chenille spread! I am blessed to have my mother's off-white one that looks almost the same as yours. I have had it stored away and now, since I've seen yours I may just get it out and use it in my little quest room.


  12. Reminds me of the white one that my mom had when I was growing up....

  13. Gosh, I love chenille bedspreads and that one is a beauty! Brings back great memories.

    Thanks so much for joining in this week!


  14. Why is it chenille bedspreads remind us of our grandmothers? I sure wish one of my grandmother's had survived.

  15. I love old chenille bedspreads. It is so hard to find them still in good condition, though :)
