Bedroom Redo

If you have followed by blog for any amount of time, you know all about my daughter's HOT PINK bedroom.

Yes, it was HOT, HOT PINK!
Well, she moved out 2 months ago and I got to have the biggest room in my house back!!!
It's now MY bedroom.

Primer, Primer and Paint and the room is now a grayish/blue with brown accents and a beige accent wall for relief from all that blue.

She did int' like the closet doors so she used black curtains to cover the closet. Well, can't find the doors so I bought 2 brown table cloths and turned them into my new closet "doors".
Love the look and how it gives just more impact on that wall.

I also am in love with New Orleans... so, I tried to find pictures in a book, but instead, searched the Internet and printed off some black and whites of the great city and hung them in frames that use to house vintage handkerchiefs.

My daughters unused clarinet hangs all the wall to emphasize New Orleans Jazz.. Wreaths I made and my collection of hand mirrors on the other wall.

Happy, Happy, Happy describes how I am with the way my new bedroom turned out!

Craft Fairs and White elephant tables

I love craft fairs...not so much for buying the craft items, but for getting ideas and seeing what people have come up with for sale! It's a big business here in the Lewiston/Auburn area in Maine.. and yesterday was the cream of the crop.
I started at the Church by the Lake craft fair. Then headed off to the Gingerbread craft fair, 6th Street Congregational, Holy Trinity and Jillson's Christmas on the Farm. Whew!! A busy day , but the things I like best are the "Hidden Treasures" or White Elephant tables.

I found these goodies for under 2.00... how fantastic is that?!!!! It's the most wonderful time of the year!!!

I also am aware this is my 199th post... a giveway should be coming up soon!! Have a great day and Enjoy the beginning of the work week!
