I finally did it! Two years ago I saw these drapes at Ballard's Designs.
I pondered. I mulled. I debated.
I asked on my blog.
I ordered drapes!
3 years with a window over our head (there is no other spot for the bed).
I know the drapes are covering part of the window. I'm okay with that.
I also hung them up just beneath the ceiling to visually raise the height of the ceiling.
The table was my mother in law's. I think it has to be about 65 years old, but I like the airiness of the piece in front of the window. Only one rocker will stay.. the other has a home elsewhere when the we can decide on the fabric for the new chair in the living room. (totally convoluted I know)
I love this old Howe treadle machine! The shoe plates are some of my favorite pieces and they remind me of a very special lady, who I'd like to be more like! Thanks Gayle.
junk decor pieces are displayed on these shelves in our bedroom. Lots of family pictures (ooh just found out that is bad feng shui. Oh well. And I need to declutter. And we still need new nightstands. And that blasted ceiling fan is history when I can find a ceiling hugger light I like.
I have fabric ordered from Ballard's to recover the neckroll pillow and to accent the smaller embroidered one. My mom crocheted the bedspread. Those pillow slips were part of my mother's dowry. Did you know that bed and table linens usually sported the wife's maiden initials?
Thanks for droppin in.. I appreciate your visit, leave a comment so I can visit you back.
