Back in Spencer's Room

Happy November!!

A couple of weeks ago, I revealed a project to you that had been going on in
 one of our bedrooms upstairs. This is the room where Spencer stays when he comes home.
He lives on his own and has never called this house home but I still want it to be
just right for him too.

At the time that I first showed you the room, I was waiting on the perfect art work.
And it arrived last week.

Isn't it wonderful?!
We all love it.
I'll confess to trying to find a place downstairs to hang it 
but truly it was meant for this spot.

Maybe someday he'll bring a wife here.
Bet she'd like it too.

What do you think?

I love it! I play that song every year when we read a short biography on Louis Armstrong in class. I am always amazed how many students have never heard it.

That is the PERFECT touch for Spencer's room! I bet he'll love it...and so will that future wife. ;-)

I love it, Stacey! That is one of my all time favorite songs. It always makes me teary but I love hearing it. It makes for a great sign, too.

Kim @ Exquisitely Unremarkable said...

What a really cool sign, Stacey! Don't you love it when you find something you totally love and love to look at? I bet you smile every time you walk by Spencer's room...

That sign found the perfect spot! When we moved cities and two of our sons were 22, many people assumed we would "downsize." I held out for bedrooms for each of them to come home to. I didn't want them to feel squeezed out of our home just because my husband's job took us to another place. I am so glad I held out and they do have their own places when they come.

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow said...

The song's going through my mind now :)

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

Crying here!

My favorite song. My son and I danced to this at his wedding. The marriage didn't last, but it is still my favorite song.

I am going over to the site to check it out.

Spencer's room is definitely welcoming.

Wow I love this picture- that's a real keeper!. I've got the song running through my head now too! It looks great with the metal bed. I trust he will appreciate it and the positive message it gives!

That is a great sign. I love signs that have a nice message like that.

Spencer is one lucky young man.

Perfect for Spencer's room. I've always loved that song. It would be perfect for a guest room too. Great blue and white pillows on the bed too.
Thanks for stopping by my "new" blog, Stacy.

Charming Lucy said...

I love that song. I already pray for my daughter' future husband. I know it is early to think about, but I figure that the more I pray and plan for him, the better he will be when he finds my girl(: Susan

Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes said...

I just love it! I think it would look fantastic in my mudroom. I hope that your son does bring a wife home some day - she is sure to love the sign!

Absolutely gorgeous and perfect Stacey! I love the song and the sign :>)

Its beautiful! And you're right, it's perfect hanging over the bed. I can relate to finding something I love and hanging it all over the house till I find just the right spot!
LOVE your new artwork! Have a great weekend!

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

Beautiful and I love it! what a great size too. I'll go have a look at Between you and me

This sign is incredible! It's one of my favorite songs, and I never thought about it in the form of a sign. Love it!

Hi Stacey! I just found you and needless to say, you are pretty awesome! I love your style! I must know where you purchased that sign, "What a wonderful world", it's my sister's favorite song!

I am writing to you today to get your opinion on my baby...not literally one of my kids, but my baby, new invention Blankillow! It's a blanket in a pillow! Two designs one for home, the other for travel.

Would you ever use it? The Home Blankillow sits on your sofa as a decretive throw pillow. Then you unzip the seam pull out your snuggling poncho blanket and lay on your pillow which is stuffed with relaxing memory foam!

I need your opinion as to whether this is something woman would buy. It was inspired by my sports loving husband that always complained the pretty decretive throw pillows on the sofa are just not comfortable.

Any advice would be great! I can even send you a prototype! :) aka@blankillow.com Email me. We launched on Kickstarter and hit our goal within days of launching so you can still grab one (but I will send you one at no cost...shhh don't tell)!

Here is our video and page :)
