A quick peek inside my bedroom!

It's always so much fun when you see things you LOVE on a friend's blog!
I went to House Mysteries today and she has made some GORGEOUS jewelry!
My favorite........the Lady of Shallot necklace, of course!

Here are photos of my Lady of Shallot 'dream' room.

And now we've added a chair and lamps!

I have had the Lady of Shallot painting for years
and always wanted to decorate my bedroom around the theme.
I was amazed to find this comforter that I thought was perfect...
and what is it called? Camelot! Of course!

I still have a lot of things I want to add
but I did find this mirror to put on my dresser right next
to my jewelry armoire and I am SO happy with it!

I found it at a thrift store and when I set it down,
I realized I had a reflection of the Lady of Shallot when I took the photo!

This is some metal art called "Cat Tails " that we bought at an art show last year.

I love taking my time and adding things that go with my theme
instead of getting everything all at once.

Thanks for inspiring my post, Denise!

Happy Weekend!!!

What a lovely room and it looks to be a good size as well. It's always fun to decorate, letting things unfold as you go. I've always liked that painting, what a beautiful piece to inspire you.

Hi Diane,

What a beautiful room with a view of the trees. You created beauty and harmony with your colors (your very own painting). I love your new mirror and how special that it reflects your art.
Have fun putting on your finishing touches.

What a beautiful room. I add things a little at a time too because I have such a hard time deciding what I want. I have to absolutely love it or I won't buy it.

Thanks for the shout out. I love the Lady of Shalott, too. Have you heard the song by Loreena McKinnett where she puts the poem to music? One of my favorites. I took nine of my necklace/earrning creations down to Lillo Bella, the new shoe/purse/jewelry shop on State Street in Greensboro! This is the first store to carry my jewelry. Your room looks peaceful and relaxing!

Suzy's Vintage Attic said...

What a beautifully tidy room with al that light flooding in! Our room is full of boxes whilst we continue our decorating. Can't wait until it's all done and like yours feels peaceful.

That bed looks COM-FY! And I love that giant window!
I agree, it's much better to collect, over time, things that you really love rather than just filling a room for the sake of filling it.

Your room is coming along nicely, in fact by adding a chair gives the room more of a cozy feel to it. I know what you mean by getting things for your room at a slower pace. That's where the joy is by coming across something that will fit right into your space. I can't tell you how many times I have found things at yard sales, that I wouldn't even imagine to get until I seen it. Joy Joy joy

You are finding just the perfect pieces for your room. I have a friend who also loves the "Lady of Shallot".
Very lovely.
I have enjoyed my coffee with you this morning. Always nice to catch up. Your paper dolls are charming!
Happy Spring!
Happy April!

Everything looks as if it's coming together nicely. I enjoyed that peek into your bedroom and through your bedroom to the neighborhood charming. I love that cat of nine tails art...unique!

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

Your bedroom is looking wonderful! I love the mirror you found. I can't believe you were out thrifting without me!

Lila Rostenberg said...

What a lovely peaceful room!
Less is more, and the Lady of Shallot becomes a focal point!
