I have gotten one more room done with my spring cleaning. I wish I could take better pictures in this room, but I never can. I have a Canon point and shoot and I always get the windows like this no matter what time of the day it is. If anyone knows how I can avoid it please let me know. One of these days I would love to have a dslr to use.
This room has been painted three times since we have lived here. First it was white, than purple, and now blue. When I picked out the blue for this room it was suppose to be lighter and the store said it would when it dried. I could have painted it again, but I was just too darn tired and said I could live with it for a few years.
The sheers in here are just like the ones in our other bedroom. I liked them so much I just bought more for this room. In this picture I pulled the shades down hoping for a better picture, not so it seems. The quilt is store bought, but I did make the pillows.
This is my cozy little corner where I sit and read sometimes. There was a window here and we just closed it up when we put siding on the house a few years ago. I love candleholders and put my blue and white collection in it.
Here is a closer view of them. Now the little tin on top has a few things in it from Ireland a friend sent to me a few years ago, including peat.
I never know what to do with those ugly phones we have now adays. So I just put in on a candleholder. Remember when some of us was very young and they had the prettiest phones. I remember when My Mom bought a blue princess phone for the house. I loved it and it was the only phone in the whole house too.
One of the things I loved about this house was his and her closets. They may be small, but they are nice. You can tell mine is the one with the heart on the door knob.
The chest and dresser are the first set we ever bought and they are over 37 years old. I painted them white a few years ago. I took the mirror off and stored it in the attic. The bed broke years ago and we bought a new one about 15 years ago.
It is a good thing I took this picture. I did not know how close my jewelry box was to the edge. I would hate for it to fall and everything spill out.
Now I need to spring clean the Living room. I will not be posting it because it is basically the same as I posted last fall. You can see it on my side bar.
