Adding a little Romance!

I love having a romantic bedroom with soft soothing colors.

(All of my blog buddies have seen it many times.)

The view out my window is of the beautifully manicured golf course so we chose a headboard that we could see through.

This week, I searched my stash of vintage fabric, lace and trims to create a new pillow for my bed.

I love the way it turned out…all frills and lace!

(a ‘shocking’ peek under the lace!)

I always make pillow covers now because there is NO WAY you can get another throw pillow in my linen closet. It’s quick and easy, too!

Here’s my ‘stash’ that I’ve been collecting.

And how about that vintage button in the center?

It was an old ‘clip on’ earring...

hubby cut the back off and I glued it onto a brooch pin!

Your pillow is very pretty. What a nice stash you have. :)

So pretty, just like you! Your pillow is gorgeous.......well done you. I've always wanted my backyard to look like a golf course, but without the players!!!!!! We've got some beautiful golf courses out here, but I think the people ruin the look....LOL

Hugs,
Meri

Cindy @ Dwellings-The Heart of Your Home said...

Beautiful! Love your bedroom and your sweet pillow, I imagine the view out your window is so pretty. Our master is like our master bath...needs a re-do! Have to get the kitchen finished first. Hopefully will get those plans finalized within the next few months...
Blessings,
Cindy

How very very pretty laces and fabrics. Love your view. Hugs Judy

Vee said...

You were a smart gal to choose a headboard that could be seen through. I doubt that it would have even occurred to me. What a sweet little pillow you created and a great idea for an old earring.

Betsy@My Salvaged Treasures said...

So pretty Diane! I love the use of lace and the vintage clip on earring.

Leovi said...

Wonderful bedroom, sleep in that bed must be a great pleasure!

Laurie said...

I have toooo many, according to my husband!!!!
This was a beautiful creation,I love it, so girly girl and yes romantic! I recognize that beautiful bedroom right away when the photo came up on my reader, I love the bed in front of the window, we can't do that here, we would freeze to death in the winter, we would wake up with icicles on our nose!

Leave It To Davis said...

Seriously....two years ago when my hubby retired, he asked me quite sheepishly if we could get a camouflage comforter. I just didn't think I could bare RUINING our décor with this hideous idea. But, he had given me the run of the house in decorating all those years (38), and I decided it was only right of me to give in. We found a camo quilt we agreed on that wasn't just "hit you in the face" camo, and I found a little lamp that was a tiny fireside (the fire is a night lite) with a deer head hanging over it, and we found a cute camo rug for his side of the bed. I already had olive green curtains, so it all went together like a puzzle that was meant to piece together....and for the past two years, we have both loved it! I'm glad I gave into him. We have 4 throw pillows...two camo and two olive green sweater knit. He is a happy man, which made me a happy woman.

I even gave in and let him put a camo recliner in our living room. :)

LOVE it!! And you can change out the cover with the seasons if you want to. I like the way you used an old earring. How did your husband cut the back off the earring? I've been wondering how to reuse those, without resorting to a huge glob of hot glue.

cucki said...

So pretty..well done x

Teresa said...

That pillow is GORGEOUS! Love it!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

This is just lovely! I love the little see through lace "skirt" and that earring -- well, I'm a vintage jewelry JUNKIE. Wish I could find more of it -- I love using it for embellishments. You did such a great job on this -- you should make and sell these with your purses in your shop.

Ivy and Elephants said...

Your cute pillow is so sweet. I love the pin in the center!
Hugs,
Patti

Olga said...

Cranberry Morning said...

Your bed is so pretty, Diane, and I love the new pillow! You're so creative. I need to do something like that. Actually, I need to do a lot of things and sometimes it's hard to know where to start. lol

Susan said...

What a serene room to go to bed and wake up to! Hey, we're Carolina-bound...sold the house and will be heading there on August 1st! I hope we can finally meet, XOXO

Kim@Snug Harbor said...

That is beautiful - love it. Have a nice weekend. xo

Creations by Marie Antoinette and Edie Marie said...

I absolutely LOVE your bedroom!! And the pillow you made is so perfect for your bedding - which is also wonderful!! I like the colors, very soft and soothing. The only thing I would do is perhaps find an old sheer lacy dresser scarf that you could drape over your headboard on those rainy days when you want a "pretty" to see instead of the raindrops.
It's a real haven that you've created!

Have a fab weekend!
hugs & blessings, Edie Marie

Love the pillow you made. So feminine and pretty.
I just counted nine pillows on my bed and would you believe one of them has a clip on earring and antique postcard attached?

LOVE that pillow, and your bedroom is so light and pretty. What a good idea to choose a headboard that does not block that beautiful light.

It's positively lovely, and the little peek-a-boo skirt is a great touch!

Sue said...

I really like the lace overlay that gives just a peek of the floral pattern below it. Very pretty, Diane!
