Sprucing up

On Labor day I went to Macy's with about a million other people. I was
looking for some clothes to add to my working
wardrobe now that I will be going back to work. But I entered the store
by going through the bedding department and was able to find a new
duvet and some shams that were SO on sale! The duvet was originally $175.00
marked down to $40.00 and the euro shams were marked down to $18.00 from $68.00.
I like the pattern Wildflowers.
It is very different from what I usually pick but it is so soft
and it looks really fresh.
Of course all of this meant that I needed to refresh the room. I had so much fun
doing it and I thought I would share............

I will be getting a feather insert which will make it much more luxurious
I will also purchase a dark fitted sheet to contrast the underside of the duvet.
I also need an
accent pillow so to give you an idea of what I will be looking for
I put a tray there that is close to the
size and shape I would like.

So then I wanted to fix the dresser that has never been the way I wanted it to be....

I was able to turn the mirror the other way which is good for me to be able to see
when I put my jewelry on.

The sweet little bird dish that my sister Kerri gave me used to be used
for soap in the bathroom
but is now where I keep things that I take off after a long day
then at the end of the week I return everything back to the drawer.

As always Georgie was with me every step of the way and nothing was moved
without his approval..............After all it is his room too!

Hi Kim,
I love the duvet and shams! And what a great deal you got on them. All the vignettes in your room are so pretty. I just love that chest by your bed! I am in the middle of a redo on my bedroom and right now I am going without curtains on the windows. Bet the traffic out front is getting a kick out of that.

Hi Georgie, you cutie.

I think that was so cute putting the pretty tray where your pillow will go. Looks great.
