A darling bedroom.

Hello everyone!  I thought I'd share some pictures of my sweet girl's bedroom.  Not that she sleeps in it or anything, but that's another post.  

I recently re-arranged and re-decorated along with organizing and de-cluttering this space.  

She has two beds in this room.  The twin belonged to my husband when he was a boy, and the double bed was my great-great-grandparents' bed.  They moved to Louisiana from France around the turn of the century.  

I decided to hang plates above both beds to tie them together for a more cohesive look.

This is "Penelope" from Pottery Barn.  I just love birds and so does my sweetie.  

I love the stripes and polka-dots.  

I added this quilt to the foot of the twin bed.  It was my husband's great-grandmother's who sewed it in the 1920s.  This yellow was very popular in the 20's.

This dresser belonged to Caroline's great-great-great grandparents.  It's been re-painted.

These are my no-sew curtains.  Just hot glue.  I loved the fabric.  Found it at Hobby Lobby three years ago. 

I wanted to hang her art and some sentimental pieces so I decided the wall above the TV would be a good spot for a "gallery."

I made her this for her Paris Birthday Party this year.

This was purchased in St. Augustine.  She rode this carousel every day, and I found this painting in a shop that was painted by a local artist. 

My mom and dad bought this print at a gas station when they were expecting their first child (me!) and were still newlyweds.  They colored it together.  
I've saved it all these years. 

I painted this on her wall to match the PB quilt on her bed.  

I painted this when this room used to be a nursery.  I sang this song to her every day and every night as I rocked her to sleep.  
I can't imagine painting over it.  But there is probably going to come the day when she is going to want me to.
