Vintage Grain Sack Pillow & A Favorite Room~

Hi All, hope you had a lovely week and are gearing up for a great weekend.
I've been a bit ill this past week, but felt a bit better today, so I took some photos of my son's room.
I had this vintage grain sack for a couple of years and decide it would look cute as a pillow for my son's room.

I hope my boy's room isn't starting to look too girly, cause I really like it!~ In fact, I think I like it better than mine.

The lamp shade is a floral print, so I just covered it with strips of burlap I sewed elastic strips onto.

I know your all probably tired of seeing these flowers, but I just love them in this vintage coal bucket.

Here's a better shot of the lamp shade I made.

I love their new room because it is super big and they have tons more room now to play. This is just my older son's half of the room. My little one's side was a mess, so that will be for another day.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

And I just wanted to say thank you all  for your continued visit's and support with my blog. Even though I don't respond all of the time to your comments, they do mean the world to me, so thank you!!

  14. danke du liebe für die traumhaften fotos.
    wünsche dir auch ein schönes wochenende.
    herzlichst daniela

  15. Will you adopt me? I want a BR like that too. I can't wait to visit and see the rest of your place! If the Hawaii deal falls through, I might want to look into being your neighbor. I think we need a little change too. BTW thanks for letting me vent today, you're such a great friend! I hope you keep feeling better.


  16. Hi Melinda,
    Love your sons room, you know how much I loved it when you gave up your master for boys room.
    I think white is fine. Do you remember actress Pamela Lee Andersons sons room was all white and beach shabby chic. If I had a young son I would do white, grain sack linens and the big anchor color would be dark grey quilts added and layered to the white bedding :)

    Keep inspiring all that inspires you sweet friend.

  17. Really Nice room,cosy But still with the perfect items tatt makes it boyish and Cool.Perfect actually!
    And of course beautiful pictures:)

  18. Everything is coming together just beautifully Melinda! I just knew that it would :) I love the boys room too, it looks like the perfect place for sweet dreams! The room with the dress forms in it is gorgeous too, you have brought yourself to this new home and your family is blessed for that! Can't wait to see more! t.xoxoo

  19. The room is darling. I wish I could do that in my boys room, but I have a feeling Star Wars and lego is going to push the direction the rooms go in. Oh well, as long as I have my say in the main rooms. I hope you are enjoying your new home.

  20. Oh my goodness I just adore your sons room!!! It is awesome!!

  21. I love, love, love your son's room!
    In fact, I love, love, love your whole blog. Your home is perfectly gorgeous. I love everything about it. Your photos are just beautiful.
    Thank you for visiting my blog, I am your newest follower.


  22. I'm so glad you feel better, Melinda.
    I was ill this past week, as well. Yuck, laying in bed wondering when it would all end. I had so much I wanted to accomplish. Not much you can do when you are sick.
