I've been spending some of the hot afternoons
up in my bedroom
(We only have A/C up here~
that is a move up from the "old days"!
as my older kids will attest to...
These old houses can get
up to 90 degrees in the upstairs-
How did they do it
without electricity and area fans?
I digress... I've been doing some past due spring cleaning
and, you know what that leads to...
decorating~I just can't help it!
We haven't done anything in here for quite awhile
so I'm wanting to fluff a bit
and finish up some things.
So I thought I'd show what it looks like right now.
This burgundy dress is a guinne sax
(if you know what that is-we know what age you are!)
I actually wore it to one of my high school dances-
of course, my date was dear hubby!
That tells how sentimental I am
and how I connect *memories* and *things*
The loveseat in the corner
was in my grandmother's house
for as long as I can remember.
She was way ahead of the times, don'tcha think?
We put the bathtub in the room
to be more like a bed and breakfast.
You can tell by the faucet
how many times I have used it:)
My 1/2 bath
the mirror harp we have put in 3 different houses.
We just buy an unfinished oak cabinet base
and then stain it to match.
But I'm thinkin' white paint!
This chandlelier was a surprise present
from my sweet husband.
I came home one day from shopping;
He had painted it & installed it.
Wasn't that sweet?
