So anyway, I finally got my bed made up, and took photos, so now I can show it to you! I'm only kidding around...most days I do make my bed up.... the whole room looks like a total disaster with my piles of pillows, if I don't!
As you can tell, I like mixing up my bed linens....the tufted bench at the foot of my bed is full of throws, bed skirts, pillow shams and pillow cases in all colors. I get tired of matching bedding sets too quickly ....so I've found that white works best for me as the base for my bedding....that way I can easily change things up with a different bed skirt and pillows, when I want to.
My white quilt and shams came from T.J. Maxx, the tan and white pillow cases are Country Living, the two white embroidered small accent pillows with the ruffles were thrift store finds, the dust ruffle was a thrift store find, and the old needlepoint rose pillow was an Etsy find! I love old embroidery and anything needlepoint!
I don't usually go for much of a decorating theme in my rooms, I have more of a collected over time look and feel, but if it had a theme, I guess this room would be all about roses roses and more roses....this hand painted rose picture was a yard sale find a few years ago (I believe it was $3)....and I'm still lovin' my chandelier....it came from Wayfair and it got put up when I painted my room......
Here's another photo with one of my other favorite needlepoint pillows....I couldn't make up my mind which pillow I liked better! So I thought I'd post this other photo too!
I have a question before I go....maybe someone out there can help me with something. I really do need a new camera.... I've been thinking about getting one for a while now, but to be honest, I am not sure what to buy. The more I research the more confused I get. I want a camera that's easy to use that would give me better quality photos, and for the least amount of money. The camera I'm using is a simple point and shoot Kodak Easy Share. I've had it a several years now and most every photo I take has to be edited to get even a half-way decent picture, and if the room doesn't have much natural lighting, (like the one above and most of my rooms), it's even worse. Many pictures I take do not turn out usable at all. If anyone has any suggestions about a camera that's affordable, that would be better than this one I'm using, please leave me a comment. I'm hoping I'll get a camera sometime soon, maybe at least by Christmas, fingers crossed! Or maybe some wonderful company out there will somehow find me and want to donate me a camera to use here on the blog! I'd surely take it!
Well, thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great week!
P.S. I almost forgot to mention, my headboard came from Walmart.com it was $150 for king size with free shipping.
