This is my almost done bedroom. By that I mean just a little more painting of the stripes around the walls. I changed my mind at the last minute and I want the stripes all the way up to the ceiling.

I love all the pillows. I have been picking them up everywhere over the last few years. I love that they all go together but none really match.

I have a large bedroom and wanted to make it a little bit cozier. So day I was laying in bed and looking at the beams above and got this idea to make a canopy. So I used tension rods for the curtains and they fit perfect between the beans. Now that is what I call LUCK. I love the way it turned out. I also have a mini chandelier hanging above my bed. Great for reading at night.

I found this night stand in Pacifica 2 years ago . I loved the colors when I bought it and now it looks great in my NEW bedroom. The prints above it I found in Stockbridge MA. On vacation last year.

My dresser I love. I bought this bedroom set about 20 yrs and still love it. The stripes in my room I first saw in a little tea shop in Pleasanton. It's called The English Rose Tea Shop. My friend and I went in for tea and I fell in love with the paint color and the stripe. So here it is. The owner was so nice to give me the paint color. If you are ever in Pleasanton stop in for tea and you will see what I mean. Plus it's fun.

I'm always changing the look of my dresser. This week it's roses and teacups next week who knows. I also found this lamp at Marshalls and it matched the ones on my night stand from a garage sale. Now that is luck

The old window above is from my friends Sharon's Mom's home. I am trying to get really good at painting roses, almost there, but for now it is a rose stencil. I think it turned out great. The rocking chair is from my husbands grandmother. We have had this for at least 39 yrs.

And this is another project that is almost done. I really didn't like the brick in my NEW room. Soooo I am covering it with bead board. All we have left to do is the top. Weather has not been that great to glue some boards together. Should be done soon. I will take the after picture.

I love this mantle scarf. I have had this for so many years. The Rose picture is my friends Sharon's. She had no place in her home for it and I have it on loan. I think I have had it for about 10 yrs. I'm sure some day she will find the perfect spot for it (hope not). I love it above the fireplace.

and finely we have a little porch off our bedroom. I love looking out onto our garden when everything is in bloom. My husband and I sit out there quite often during the summer.

What an inspired idea! That turned out wonderful! Love all the lace you use--I used to have some wonderful lace curtains, why oh why did I give them away? Sure wish I had them back now! Your pictures are wonderful and I love all your creative ideas. Kay
