I think we’ve known each other long enough for me to invite you into my bedroom don’t you? I mean, jessh, I have been blogging since August, we are well past the “get to know you” stage. =)
I just thought I would share some pictures of it so you know that my WHOLE house isn’t packed full of folk art bits and bobs. I do have ONE room in the house that is sparsely decorated with soft, soothing colors. It’s quite a contrast to how I decorate my “living” areas.
This is a pic of the mantle my Dad made for me the first year the BG and I were married. The mirror I made out of an old picture frame I found at a salvage junk shop and had the glass cut to fit. I have pretty frilly white curtains , but for some reason I still haven’t hung them up since we moved here. Gotta do that. And the candlelier I got at a garden shop a few years ago and used to hang from my pergola in my garden. It usually has candles in it LOL and a “scarf” from the wire it’s hanging from, guess I have some work to do in there!!
Here is the bed where all the “Magic” happens LOL!!!! There are 3, yes three feather beds on that baby, a down comforter AND a warm cozy quilt.
And here is where my clothes and all the stuff that makes me smell good live:
So this weekend I think I will be giving this room it’s Christmas makeover- stay tuned for pics.
Of course I need to put a binding on this quilt that I got back from the quilters yesterday first! This is a Thimbleberries Christmas top that my friend Penny gave me. I think she didn’t like the fabric in the middle?? Or maybe she just gave it to me because I liked it, she is like that! Sweet girl I am tellin’ ya. Anyway, it’s going on my kitchen table as soon as I bind it. I think is looks like old fashioned Christmas. Makes me feel like stringing some popcorn and cranberries right now!!
Later Gators! Melissa
