How are you?
I hope that you all are having a great week so far. I am a little behind on things and spent yesterday trying to catch up with everyone. This weekend was a busy one for me and I wasn't able to visit with you all like I wanted, but I am slowly making my way over to your place. :)
I wanted to thank you all for your wonderful comments about my beachy bedroom! I am enjoying it so much and I can't wait to open those windows and let the warm summer breezes blow through the sheers......ahhhhh!
When I picture a house on the water that is the image that comes to my mind; warm, soft breezes flowing through the house gracefully sweeping the soft sheers enough to see them dance.
COME ON SUMMER!!!!!
I just wanted to quickly show you some little touches around the room before I dive head first into my next project.
Speaking of sheers, here is how I attached the ones on the posts of the bed. It was pretty easy and I didn't even make any holes, which made my hubby happy!
I simply found some thicker gauge wire, thread it through the top of the sheer..
and then wrap it around the top of the post!
On one side of my dresser I have my apothecary jars filled with my treasures from the trips to Florida, Mexico and just some beauties that I found at local shops that I loved.
On the other side of the dresser are some of my favorite photos. My son when I took him to the beach one afternoon when he was about 8 months old, my daughter when she came home from the hospital and two pictures of my trip to Belize on a little island that we snorkeled from called Gilligan's Island!
(no the Professor and Skipper were not there) :)
I also added a mirror to the barnwood frame that I had displayed on my frantel. I was so inspired by Kindra from At Home with K and her door mirror that I HAD to do it!!
A while back I received a little package from one of my dear friends Laurie from Heaven's Walk, sorry Laurie I did not take a picture of the package, I was so excited to open it, I know, bad blogger! But it was so cute and came with a little note and some dried lavender.
Inside where these little beauties that she made.
Aren't they beautiful?
She just started making them too! She is a pro already!! If you have not met Laurie, please stop by and say hi, she has a heart of gold and will welcome you with open arms!
I also recently won this beautiful sign from Anne at Bird/Like. She is so sweet and talented and if you have not met Anne either, please stop by. I love her home and her love for birds shines through! Everything is so beautiful!
So there are a few touches around my room, I am still playing with and rearranging things and Anne gave me the suggestion of putting a mirror in the open area of the frantel to reflect the candle light, make it feel more like a fireplace. I am thinking of doing the method from Kindra on a bigger piece of glass and see how that turns out, I just love the look of the aged mirror.
I also wanted to thank Sharon from Infatuated with Homes and Gardens for sharing an award with me!
Thank you so much Sharon and please stop by her place, there is so much beauty and inspiration there and I am enjoying getting to know her!
Have a wonderful day and I will be back later to share with you my next big project!
Hey guess what?
I am painting again!!!!
