A Peek Inside My Guest Bedroom

A few pictures of my guest bedroom.  I have a "travel theme" in here.  Plus it's a spot to display some of my heirlooms.  I also like lots of pillows, as you can see!

The painted nightstand belonged to my grandpa.  He used to have it next to his favorite chair and always kept a magnifying glass in it.  So I keep a magnifying glass in there, too. I'm pretty sentimental that way!

Five Dollar Desk


While out thrifting a week ago I scored this cute little school desk for $5! It just needed a little cleaning. I already had the now I have the whole ensemble!  I dressed it up with a darling old school book that came from my great-aunt's home.   Then I added a few other books, an old flag, ruler, and some cute little children's games! 

Oops, sorry about the shadow!


Here's the cover of that cute little reader.


My kids came home from school and liked it, too!

Springing Back to Blogging

 The last few months have been so busy...I had to put blogging on hold.  Hopefully now I can get back to blogging now and then!  I sure do enjoy reading other blogs and seeing all the wonderfully talented and creative people out there! I'm posting a few new pics from in my house...just random!  Leave me a message to say hi ~ I'd love to hear from whoever reads my blog!
