Today I thought I would take you on a tour of our bedroom. As you will see, I am crazy about toile, especially blue & white toile! I don't always keep this bedding on our bed. I like to change it out with the seasons. But this is my very favorite look! Our bedroom is quite large, with vaulted ceilings, lots of windows and two skylights, so it really feels light & airy.
I love our bedroom, but there are two things in here (well, mainly two!) that I really don't like: the cedar walls, and the glass block you see to the left of the bed. They are so not me!! To me they scream 1980's! This was my hubby's handiwork, long before I came on the scene! So, I try to ignore/work around it, as best as I can!
I adore vintage embroidered pillow cases, and have collected quite a few over the years at garage sales. Here is a close up of one of my favorites. Imagine all of that work, even hand crocheted edging! My mom made the two bolsters you see here. She incorporated one of my vintage linens on the larger one, and it has the most gorgeous trim! I think it may be tatting.
I love chandeliers! Anything sparkly makes my heart go pitter patter! On the quilt rack you will see a few of my vintage linens, and a very old quilt.
I love shell crafting, and I made this one hanging over our bed. I don't know if shells go with the toile look, but I love it!
More toile loveliness!
In the picture below is a metal/iron wall hanging that I love. I found it at Jo Ann Fabrics, and I added some toile fabric to the back.
In my very first blog post in April, I talked about this clock (with more of my toile!), that I turned into a jewelry cabinet. You can read more about it here
Well, that's the end of the tour! Hope you all have a fantastic weekend, and find some great bargains if you get out & do some garage saling!
I am linking up with Cindy over at My Romantic Home, for Show & Tell Friday.
