  3. Oh, my!!! What a WONNNDERFUL WAY to START THE DAY!!!~~~~~~ A+...A+...A+...!!!

    Vicky, I LOVE IT~ SOOOO worth the wait!!! (Hugs n' thanks to yer huz for HIS "timely" help, too!). It just "FEELS" sooo soffft, so warm, so welcoming~~~ you GOT IT down~ PERFECTLY!!!

    AN EXTRA SPECIAL "KUDOS" to you, too, for leaving BREATHING SPACE~~~ we've all been in guestrooms where they're so overly filled w/ "things", that one can hardly BREATHE, let alone find a clear spot to put down one's purse or even a book! Your future guests will THANK YOU, ANNNNND they'll SLEEP BETTER, too!!!
    (And of course, the added touch of the soft, pink flowers is the "icing on the cake"~ feminine & lovely, but NOT offensive to a man!!!)~

    So glad you were SWEET ENOUGH to get it posted today~~~ I can stop holding MY breath now, and maybe my face will now return to a "normal color" by T'Giving dinner tomorrrow!!!

    Enjoy a wonderful, family-filled, lazy & comfy day tomorrow! You've certainly EARNNNNNED it!

    Love n' hugs,
    Linda *

  9. Lovely room! I'd add a blue touch if by the water. A touch, as in pillows, throws, a tapestry in the hallway.

    I'm fond of blue now that I live around water.

  10. Your guest room turned out beautiful! Just like I imagined it would! And never blue! My motto too! ( However, I've had to use it for a boy's room.) Love the bedding, love it all! Tell us sometime where it all came from and how you pulled it all together. Happy Thanksgiving, Delores

  18. Let’s rejoice in the victory of bringing your vision to life, my friend. The headboard makes a powerful statement with its carved architectural relief combined with a palette of subtle colors for ultimate tranquility and that elusive quality of timeless elegance. Not a more beautiful display of decorating that is deeply sought and desired.

  25. Even though I'm no longer able to spend money on home decor I enjoy looking.

    Marcus and I are off to volunteer at our church. My husband is in for a long day at Kmart.

    We had our Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. Marcus and I made the whole dinner. It was my first turkey! And my husband loved it!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  31. Hiya! I came over the other day and couldn't get your site to load . . . I guess you had a lot of visiters. But, I'm back and drooling over your room. So soothing. Simple elegance! And I love the headboard. You know you make a guest room too nice that "they" won't leave. (smile). -s
