~Bedroom Makeover~Recent Finds!!

Hello Everyone...I know it has been a while since my last post. I just can't blog as much as I would love too! So today I thought that I would share with you what I have been working on!
My bedroom makeover...No more pink pillows, floral bedspread, pink vintage accessories, fake flowers, so no more shabby chic pink! I have always loved more of an antique french Victorian look anyway. There are so many inspiring blogs out there to encourage you to find your style!
Well, I have found mine. I love most things Victorian and ornate in design. Silver trays, ornate
antique frames, silver trophy's, antique garden treasures, rhinestone jewelry, and dress forms!
Paris trophy on a sliver tray, Thinking of replacing these purple flowers with
some pretty white roses...just thinking...

No more pink floral hats hanging over my headboard.
This antique crocheted tablecloth looks much prettier!!

Just one of my favorite recent finds on Etsy.com is this wonderful
burlap pillow cover...Love It!!

Out with all the pastel McCoy pottery, Kept just the white pieces,
I brought in all my vintage cake toppers from my dining room,
I love how they look behind glass doors! Pretty!
Some recent finds...a vintage style crown for my favorite dress form, and
a wonderful old rusty iron plant stand, I just added tea-stained roses!
Here are some before pictures from the past year....
I am so loving the new look....out with the old and in with the new!! No more hats, just about sold them all, just a few more to
list on eBay. Let me know if you collect them. I am selling
most of them for only 20.00-25.00 each. They are really pretty!
I hope you all have enjoyed this mini makeover...I am
in the process of redoing the master bathroom. Stay tuned...
Wishing you all a wonderful new year!! Thanks for stopping by!!
