Hello, hello, hello! Today was filled with getting a fund raiser (for mission trip) going and following the national Bible Bee with our live stream cast! It is so amazing to see all the young people compete! Their hard work for such a worthy cause is just am.az.ing! We had a few blogging friends who competed and many who attended. Make sure to check it out!
SO, today we have a unique post to share with you- a tour of our (Rebekah and my) room's decor!
Charlotte from The Boyer Family Singers did a post of her own room not too long ago and I requested if I could use her wonderful idea for a post of our own. She is so sweet to comply with us! You can view her post here. It was so fun to see what she did to make her space her own style. I am sure you will fall in love with their beautiful blog, glorious photography, and lovely writing! Make sure to give them a follow!
Rebekah and I worked up from the studs to have our room- dry-walling, painting, wall-papering, trimming, and yes, even our horrendous pink carpet. :) Up till about three years ago, all five of us kids were in one room! We are currently on our second addition. Our home was one of a row of migrant houses in the 30's. My Dad has lived here for 22 years- we have never moved...just kept adding on to our once 550 square foot home! :)
But, don't worry, I am just going to show you what we have done till now- in our room. I am sure if we make any changes we will send them your way!
So take this tour with us as we show you all our put together, uncluttered, style of vintage antiqueiness! :)
Then of course the things up top, brushes/comb, plain bobby pins, my Burt's Bees everything and a few antique necessities, shoe hook, talcum powder, perfume, etc...
which I neglected to take a photo of. Oops.
This is our closet door. I added a few delicate baby/doll clothes to our all-ready wonderful (free!) door.
I put an old tablet in the window part of our door- we write 'to do' lists or the events of the day on it.
An old pitcher with our umbrellas that are too old and tattered to be used. Among other things.
Note how I tacked a tin teapot to look like it was watering the roses.
And Daisy, my sewing machine. :)
Note how we put things behind the chair-rail. And more dried plants. :)
Note the crock.
Note the 'ring' of keys.
Note the tin.
Well, I've got a long day tomorrow and since these pictures took SO long to upload I better hit the hay!
Hopefully we can squeeze in some time for the rest of the Bible Bee tomorrow!
I hope you all liked this post and got a few ideas!
Thanks again Charlotte for having such a fun idea and allowing us to use it! Many blessings to you dear!
