Friday Favorites

Today while we were having lunch and watching Gunsmoke (really),

I looked in at my bedroom and thought...

It's a big blank slate right now and obviously I'm not a bed making perfectionist.

What should I do with this room?




And then I thought there are some things I really love about this blank slate already.

Love my print on the wall by Tom Caldwell.


Love these two pillows that I purchased at Laurie Anna's Vintage Home last weekend.

You can be jealous, her store is 45 minutes from my new house.

I will be going there every month.



But I really love this kitty and she loves this spot on the bed.



There's just nothing better than watching Sophie sleep.

Happy Friday everyone. :)

OMG! I would so be in trouble if I lived that close to Laurie Anna's!! The pillows are a wonderful jumping off point for your room.:)

Oh, gosh, Stacey, those pillows are beautiful. I can see an obsession coming on! LOL!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

What a beautiful space! I would inject a bit of color/personality into the space with fabric or paint.

I agree that your kitty is the best thing on your bed! You're lucky to live so close to Laurianna's. You're going to find the neatest stuff. Your pillows are very pretty.

Kitties.. they are my heart ...

And I quite agree, there's just nothing better than watching a kitty cat sleep in their favorite place.

My own sweet Miss Kitty is no longer with us, but I think of her often. Enjoyed seeing your Sophie.

Your bedroom is already lovely in its quiet simplicity. Not sure what else I would do...

BTW, my first time visit. Enjoyed it very much. Thank you.

Wishing you more of those glimpses of heaven in unexpected places.

I like having a peaceful bedroom...a little less stuff so that it's a refuge. Yours is very calming! I'm happy to see you blogging! I read down and saw that you had moved! I'm glad to be catching up with you. I STILL say, Poofing the pillows every time I fluff! Hugs!

OH my gosh we did lose track, didn't we. I shut down my blog for awhile then had to rebuild and let me tell you that was a challenge cuz of all the blogs I followed. So fate has brought us back together again :) I will add you to my blog roll so you will be a constant reminder.

About the bedroom. Girlfriend, you have such a beautiful space to work with with beautiful things. If I was you I would beef up the bed. Maybe some Euro pillows layered with standards then your toss pillows. How about a throw or quilt at the foot of the bed? The lamp is adorable but you could bring in more color by adding a bigger, colorful lamp.

I adore your fabric panels on the windows as well as everything you've done so far. How fun for you to have this canvas to work on!

Big bloggy hugs,
Marla

Just a little something from Judy said...

The touches you added are just right in creating a calming and beautiful looking bedroom. I think it would be dangerous for me to live so close to Laurie Anna's store. Lucky you! Your cat looks so cozy and comfy.
