This is my heaven. The place I go to when I don't feel myself...when I need a bit of down time..
and where I climb every night with my sweet hubby.
Nothing fancy or expensive here. Just things that I've fallen in love with over the years.
Collected one at a time...near & dear to my heart.
The bed itself was purchased many moons ago for $125.00. I love the height of it..I feel like 'The Princess
& The Pea' every time I climb into it. I love the creaking sound it makes
every time hubby rolls over. It's comforting.
I have it piled with bedding new & old...lots of it. I feel safe & secure in it.
The needlepoint above the bed was purchased for $15.00 at an antique store. I felt so sad for it..
nobody wanted it & so it sat for a very long time. I gave it my heart & my home.
The table hubby made. Fits the lamp & remote perfectly.
Roses from our garden sit in an old vase I picked up for $1. It's chippy and very sweet.
The plates I've collected long before decorating with them was 'in'.
When first married I could pick them up for a quarter each. I'd hang them all over the house.
Easy, cheap & they look pretty.
My heart went 'pitter-patter' for the bench. It's wonderfully aged & perfect here.
The cedar chest under the window I built in high school, it holds our adult children's school projects & special Christmas ornies...the bowl on top is the first piece of
old ironstone I ever purchased.
My Dad built the dresser...after finding an expensive hand painted one
I painted my own. I love the way it turned out & will never repaint it.
The old dresser was bought for $35 & given a couple coats of 'Robin's Egg Blue'. My favorite color.
Hardware was changed out for some old glass handles I picked up at a flea market cheap.
The old gesso and wood mirror is the very first purchase I made on ebay years ago when they
Well, that's it...like I said.. nothing fancy but worth a whole lot to me & mine.
I hope you enjoyed the visit.
I'm linking up with these great gals this week.
