It is a dream come true. About 3 years ago, my dad turned our entire basement upside down and inside out to give me this delightful haven to spend my time when I am feeling bad. Here is what I like to call...heaven! :)
The frames above my bed are really 25 cent postcards that Mom and I framed. We are real bargain hunters! My bed frame came from the flea market!
My cute dog Sophie but don't let her fool you! She thinks she is Queen Bee!
My dresser with my pretty little teacups from Anthropologie.
Chair & Ottoman.
My beautiful chair and ottoman. I love the story behind my chair. My mother quit her full-time job so that she could be home to take care of me. My Mom as always said that it may not be a glamorous gift, but God gave her the gift of cleaning and organization. Several years ago, she began cleaning homes for a little extra money but it still gave her the option to be at home when she needed to be. When she began, she said, "Wouldn't it be neat, if I cleaned elderly people's homes, who just can't do it themselves and need help?" Guess what? All of her homes are elderly, who are unhealthy and can't do it themselves anymore. God is amazing isn't He?! Anyway, back to the chair...one of her little ladies is terrible at keeping old junk. Mom saw this old, terribly ugly chair in her spare room and asked her is she wanted to keep it. Mrs. Coshatt explained that she didn't want it anymore but had no way to get it out of her house. So, Mom cleaned her house for free in exchange for the chair! Dad went and picked it up and Mom had it re-upholstered and it was a Christmas present! Neat, huh?
Yes, I have a fireplace in my bedroom! I am a lucky girl!! And there is my good and faithful Teddy. We have been through a lot together.
The view from my bed. I painted the picture in the window.
My window up close.
My favorite spot is my corner book shelf.
I was standing beside my bed when I took the photo to the left. It is a little foyer, type, thing.
My dressing table. It is so nice. It is also a bargain. It came from Big Lots and we
spruced it up with some cute knobs from Anthropologie.
This is what it looks like when you come into my room. Maybe I should I have put this photo first, haha! You can't see them very well but in this photo above the armoire and above my bed, I have two crystal chandeliers. They were my great grandmothers. She got them when they used to collect books of stamps and could purchase items.
My Bathroom!! My favorite!! I took more photos but as you can tell, I am certainly, no photographer and the photos weren't very attractive but that is an actual sink from the 1940's!! I was so happy when we found it! We found it at an estate sale and the nice lady just gave it to me for free! :)
Very bad photo!! But I wanted you to see my shower curtain! It is from Anthropologie...can you tell that I love that store? The basket of toiletries is actually a planter. Like I said, terrible photo but I hope you get the idea!
Do you see the re-occurring theme of Anthropologie? ha! It is my favorite store!
And this is where I daydream and spend my days when I not feeling very well. As you can see, if I am going to be sick, I am doing it in grand style!
