I had hinted on this post that we had a master bedroom makeover happening at our house.
The framed baby sweater was worn by Emma and Josie. I covered the lampshade with millinery flowers from a vintage hat and added lace and a faux pearl necklace to the lampshade.
My mother created this amazing wall hanging for my birthday last year.
Our newest bedroom acquisition is this fireplace mantle.
The charming faux logs might be replaced in the future, but I have to admit I think they are rather fun.
The fireplace mantle holds special hand-painted vases from Nanchang China (where we adopted Josie) and a silver coated bird nest and rose blossom.
The pictures next to the mantle were taken four years ago....Josie's first fall home with us.
The oil painting above Chris's dresser was painted by a dear friend and former colleague when Emma was in kindergarten. The camera doesn't do it justice.
Next to my dresser, hangs a wreath that my Mom and I constructed 18 years ago.
This week, we celebrate our 11th year in our current home. Prior to this home, we had purchased my grandparents 1950s brick ranch dwelling. Our home was very different with its vaulted ceiling open floor-plan. It's safe to say that after this summer, Chris has repainted every room from its original "safe" color palate. Happy anniversary house!
