And the results of your input are...

I bought the duvet cover and 3 shams (king bed)!! And it will all arrive next Thursday.
Your comments were really helpful and helped me make my mind up.
Thanks for taking the time. You're all so sweet!
I'm going to try several red rugs on the carpet and see how it looks.
I like to change our bedroom with the seasons and all of my other duvet covers have a touch of light blue in them. I'll just play it step-by-step and see what it looks like.
I had an email from 2Peas this morning and look at the cute chipboard house they were advertising. Of course they were all sold out. However, a quick 'Google' and I found them in lots of online scrapping shops.
I ordered 3 houses. I might spray paint one red, one light green, and one the darker green in the fabric.
I'd like them hung on the wall vertically.

The above photo of the fabric was on my blog yesterday, but I wanted to remind you of the print.
I also thought of a green pillow with trees (free motion quilting) all over it, or just several trees, or one tree... with one small red bird on it. I already have plain red pillows.
It would be fun to make a light green house-shaped pillow and do some embroidery work on it.

I love this kind of project and it's such fun sharing with you creative gals.

We're off to the hospital... Boyd gets his cast on his leg today.

Love you all and your wonderful ideas!!

You go, Girl! Excellent decision. The accessories you're getting with be perfect. I can't wait to see your finished room. But, since my first interest is your dollhouse, I want to see more dollhouse stuff. lol
I keep seeing blue and white dishes for your dollhouse - have you found the ones you want for it?

Your creativity is just so inspiring! I just can't wait to see what you do with houses and quilts. Now what creative thing could you do with Boyds cast is the big question LOL! Take care Joni!
