I hope you are all enjoying the holiday. I decided to put off my usual Sunday chores and do them today. I needed a break from laundry and more laundry so I thought it would be the perfect time for a post about something calming:)
I don't know about all of you, but I love my room. Sadly, I don't get to spend as much time there as I would like, but when I do, I take a deep breath and chill out. I need to remember to do this more often. My room houses a few of my FAVORITE things.
I LOVE this old, chippy blue shutter. And yes, it does sit kind of crooked. I only have one.. I so wish I had two of them. I always feel like it needs to be somewhere in the house where more people can enjoy it too. I haven't found the right space so for now...it's all mine:)
As you may know from many of my posts, I love shells too and I think these look so pretty with the blue shutter in the background.
This piece of furniture is so unique. I love the two drawers at the top. That was the selling point for this piece. The mirror above it is from The Rose Bowl Flea Market. I tried to take a picture without the bed in it, but no can do. My room isn't large.
This is my giant picture wall that I face if I am in my bed. It has so many favorite pictures of my kids and family. They are the first and last things I see each day:)
You may notice the little string that looks like it is coming from the ceiling. Well, that is part of a little TV. It doesn't look pretty, but I have to let the hubby have something. BTW~~ He wants to mount a BIG one to the wall.....my picture wall will be ruined:(( Stay tuned as to what happens. Yikes !
My "sitting " area. I got these two blue chippy chairs and this little table at the RB Flea Market. The chairs were originally bought to go outside, but I loved them too much and wanted to be able to see them all the time. So..here they are.
The print above is special to me!! I bought this print when I was in college and had it in my room. That was a LONG time ago....... It is a picture of France. I love the bike on the front (I like pictures with bikes). I have taken this print to all the places I have lived and now it is right above my bed and I guess is sort of the head board since I don't have one.
It's certainly not in the best frame (not even glass) , but it is exactly the way it has been for many many years and I don't want anything to change about it. My best friend since I was four (Susie) has the same one in her house.
Anyway, I hope you all have a calm space in your home where you can take a deep breath. We all need to remember to that.
I want to welcome all my new followers and thank everyone for the always nice comments. Doing this blog is another thing that calms me and lets me express myself.
