Something New For My Bedroom....

I was happy to get a new headboard for my bed back at the end of April, and I've been meaning to share it here on the's tufted upholstered in a linen ivory color....I love the elegant shape of it!

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!

There's not much space above the bed for anything, so I've displayed some of my vintage plates above my rustic "Always Kiss Me Goodnight" sign.  I've always loved decorating with vintage china. No room in my home is safe from my hanging up a plate....I've even been thinking of putting a few up in the bathroom over the mirrors! I can't help it....when I'm out junkin', pretty plates are just something I'm always drawn to. I've collected them for many years now and I've got stacks.....all colors and sizes...

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 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 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!  

 Well, you know I've been talking about how I've been cleaning out my treasures around here, I've decided to de-stash a few of my plates too, and offer them for sale in my Etsy shop. If you need one or two to add to your collection, Click HERE to visit my shop, where you can check out what I've got available right now.

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 it was $150 for king size with free shipping.

  1. Love your headboard! Wondering how hard it would be to make...

  2. Your bedroom is soft and pretty. Plates are great to decorate with! Love the sign over your bed. I had that saying over mine and when I painted my bedroom/changes colors, I painted over it and I miss it! I have a little canon camera and want a bigger/better one too!

  3. Thank you ladies for stopping by!

    Sue, I don't think it would be that hard of a diy project, let me know if you decide to make one...I'd love to see how it turns out :)

    I can't believe you had the same sign! By the way, maybe we'll both get a new camera soon, although I think your Canon is better than mine...fingers crossed for the both of us! :)

  4. I did buy an old white door - so my husband could mount it on the rails. So far it's acting as a divider outdoors to keep the dog out of the wood pile. My husband needs to embrace my/his diy projects. Do you have a post on that? HaHa! (and you're welcome!)

  5. Lol! I don't have a post on that one Sue...but I do love old doors!
