Sneak peek
Hello dear friends! I've decided to keep my first wall color after all. It is very pretty even though it wasn't what I first wanted and (with a crazy little 1 year old running about) I just don't have what it takes to paint it all over again!
I still have a lot to do before the room is done, though. Like finding pretty bedding and a chandelier. I've been eying this lovely vintage inspired bedding from Pennys.I'd prefer to find an old one, but there are some really gorgeous new chandeliers on Ebay for pretty cheap if you're willing to add all the crystals on yourself! lol! I just might do that.Since I'm not ready to show my room yet, I'll just give you a sneak peek. I've been having fun decorating my fabulous Simply Shabby Chic (found at the Goodwill for $30!) bookshelf with some of my favorite vintage treasures. Here's a little sneak peek of the wall color too, behind this chair! This is my mom's baby dress on an adorable vintage baby hanger. I embellished the glittered "C" with a photo of my sweet mama as a baby.
I love this vintage hanger! My mom gave me two like this and I think they are too pretty to leave in the closet! I added the rhinestone button because I just can't have enough sparkle!
Thanks for coming to visit today!
Michelle xoxo

I love all your pretties. I have a dress my Mom wore when she was a little girl - I also found a vintage children's hangar for it.

Your blog is looking beautiful.

Claudia said...

that should be 'hanger' - oh boy.

Lori said...

Delightful, sugarplum! I understand trying to do something like painting with a munchkin running around. Almost impossible! LOL

Everything is so pretty! I looove the chandelier!

Jill said...

So many pretties... I love it! I fell instantly in love with those vintage style sheets--- so I just bought them for two bedrooms! What color? One set of pink floral, one set of blue floral-- and I ordered a set of the white pillowcases, with a monogram (oooh! I've always wanted to have monogrammed sheets!). I've been wanting vintagey-look sheets forever. Thanks for time-saving tip-off!
Hugs,
Jill

Can't wait to see the final room! All these pictures are so pretty. I love the first picture with the old-fashioned hats. :)

Hi sweet Michelle,
I think your new wall color is very beautiful! I love all of the vintage pretties you have on your Shabby Chic bookcase. You have created a gorgeous vignette on each shelf! I love your mom's beautiful baby dress and the sweet hanger you have it on. You did a beautiful job embellishing the sparkly letter. I love the new bedding at JC Penneys. I know you will find the perfect chandelier! Thank you for sharing your progress! You are doing a wonderful job! Oh, I love the sweet vintage hangers your mom gave you. The bling is the perfect touch. Love, Paula

Your blog looks gorgeous!

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

I love how your room is coming together! Just keep looking and you will find the right chandelier! There is nothing wrong with finding one and then buying the crystals separately..all that counts is the end result! I will be anxious to see the room when it is finished.~Hugs, Patti

Angela said...

Hello Michelle,

Oh, look at all this vintage sweetness. Love it all. I still have my baby book, and it is like the one you have on your shelf only in yellow. You are doing a great job of decorating, and I love the wall color! I don't think it is too dark at all!!

I love your new wall color, but then, it looks a lot like the wall color in my Craft Cottage and once the accessories were up, it didn't seem quite so overwhelming. I hope you will end up enjoying it. You have a beautiful blog and I have marked you as a new favorite. I'll be back to look and read some more.
