Hello! it's been a while, but I thought it time to show a few photos. The pink room, as I call it, and the master bedroom are really the only two rooms I have essentially done on my ongoing project. Work getting in the way lately.
The above charming embroidered cottage Mom picked up at a Thrift store years ago. Isn't it sweet?
My vintage calligraphy pens & a few vintage brushes on top of one of my vintage artists supply boxes. I love how these look in the vintage pottery.
My darling Steiff Gussy cat, Floppy cat and Tiger. I adore these!
Three compo or composite dolls, from the 1930's or 1940's I believe. A little early for a mid century 1950's home, but Mom loved dolls so much, I had to get these darling girls. Wish I'd had these to play with as a kid! Aren't they sweet?
My bed, also a very vintage iron bed with the original excelsior stuffed mattress. I bought this at a Thrift store over 25 years ago.
The comforter is very much like the one I had as a girl. Silky, ruffles, with pink rosebuds. The two King & Queen pillows are pillows Mom bought me back in the early 1970's.
I bought some of my beloved childhood books. The Black Stallion series. I was a typical horse crazy kid. Dawn doll, Little Wooden Doll on the book that came with her, and a little green clay pot I made in grade school.
And the dresser with the ballerina lamps. I adore them! I wasn't a ballerina kind of kid, but I love them now.
That's all for this post, I'll post more tomorrow (fingers crossed). I know some of you have seen this room already, but I have so little to actually show!
I apologize for not even visiting your blogs. I launched a few new businesses and that was it. All my time and effort had to go there. They still are eating my time, but I could not let any more time pass before I updated.
I miss you all terribly and hope to have a bit more time for blogging!
I tried to respond to some of your blogs, but blogger is being a pain and won't let me view them! I hope to check them out soon . . .
