My Cottage Bedroom Photos

After the last post on pretty pillowcases, I naturally thought bedroom pictures should follow.
So, here are a few shots of our little cottage bedroom.

The tiger maple decon's bench is from my grandma. Its small size is perfect for this house. Sadly, its missing its claw feet. It only had one when it was passed to my mother and she removed the other and it hasn't been seen since. It still provides stylish storage for the quilts and bedspreads.
This is an older picture of the dresser. If I took a picture of it now, you would see that my hubby has it covered in receipts, cell phones, chargers, pens, pocket knives, fishing schedules, watches, business cards, ...etc. (you get the idea) LOL

Oh, and that gorgeous antique baby portrait is my grandmother. Its tinted with robin's egg blue.

Thanks for touring the bedroom with me. I guess the only room left to see is the craft/sewing room. I'll try to get that straightened up for a photo shoot soon. :)

I have also been completely negligent for not mentioning it sooner, but I was thrilled to be awarded the Brillante Weblog Award by Maria of Lil Birdie Stitches and Jillian from Bella Rosa Antiques. Thank you, girls!


Although I'm sure these ladies have already received this award before, Here's a few of my favorite blogs...

this is my patch said...

Our bedroom is painted in the exact same colour as your beautiful bedroom. There are two sides to our bed, one side which is my other halfs, the untidy side which you can't see from the door, mine is the tidy side, the one in view, thank goodness. Men will be men! I love mixing the old with the new too. x

So, sooo pretty. I wish you were my neighbor. I'd bake you delicious desserts, and then you'd give me free decorating advice.... sigh.

Your room inspired me to add just the sheerest of lace panels for my room. I love how you did different lengths of curtains... intriguing and inspiring!!!

Kelley, the shorter sheers also created perfect little 'nooks' for picture placement and the deacon's bench. :)
