~**In My Room**~

Hi all, I hope everyone is having a great week!
Before I show you all my room, I just have to say that you blogger girls truly ROCK!! You are the most supportive women I have ever known in my life, I am so blessed to have you all as my friends!!
Okay, so yesterday i was telling you all I needed to re-do the room a little because the pinks I had originally wanted to add to the room just did not work for me, so back to my trusty whites, creams, and gray-blues with small touches of pink thanks to the roses. {from Trader Joe's of course:)} 

I love this mirror shot! I have always wanted to do a mirror shot, but needless to say it never worked out!~until now

The vintage green screen door I'm thinking of moving somewhere else. What do you think, move or keep?

This is a great vintage trunk I got in Northern California. It's great for storage. I got the fabulous vintage french basket from Country Roads. Of course!!

Another mirror shot.

A closer look of my vintage windows. Look at that yummy blue paint popping through. Old skeleton keys hanging from the window latch.

Can you tell, I'm loving how my photos look in the polaroid frame.

Well, room's all done. I hope you liked the photos.

On another note, I am so excited how my new blog is going. I have some amazing women that will be featured at"The Vintage Inspired Home". I can't believe who just agreed to join in. I'll give you a hint later.

 Also, I'm linking up with the lovely Debra from "Common Ground" for her Vintage Inspiration Friday.
Stop by and check out all of the vintage yumminess.
Have a great day all.

  8. Your room is awesome and I love all the whites! With your little ones how to you keep it so nice and white? I know with my little grandkids around so much that I'm thankful a lot of my house is done in the old country primitive furniture. You can't hurt that!

  22. Love love love your room. To answer our question, I think I'd try moving the shutter to see if it didn't maybe open up that corner a bit. You can always move it back! Husbands are used to that, right?

  23. Oops! I said "shutter" and what I meant was "screen door"! Attention to detail... :-)


  24. Your room is truly amazing. I love the windows and your bedding is just fabulous. Lucky you girlfriend!

  25. Gorgeous! Don't change a thing...by the way, where did you get that fabulous roll pillow? I'm in love with that!
