Be my Guest!

This is a small guest room in our home that some of you have seen before but we are getting a bit of sunshine so I thought I would try to get a few pictures in a better light to share today.

You have probably noticed that I love toile and have several different colors of it in our home. I love toile fabric,wallpaper and china.
We did get a dusting of snow last night-our first this winter( well almost winter). Last night I went to the movie Blind Side with a couple of my daughter's and we all really enjoyed it .It is based on a true story and has a good message-if you haven't seen it yet I think you would enjoy it.
Thank you for visiting me,

Caroline, what a sweet room. I, too love the toiles you've chosen in your home. This looks like a perfect room to spend a cold, sunny day recovering from the sniffles. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Carolyn,

Wat a sweet quest bedroom I wish I could come and stay. Especially now with the snow. It must be beautiful on your island. I like toile as well, but don't have it in the house! Did your daughter get settled in her new house?

Your green, guest bedroom is one of the prettiest I've seen. I just did a post on green bedrooms and linked to you and your room.
I have misplaced your email address. I'm so sorry! Could you email me at and we can discuss the giveaway, if you still want to host one?

Have a wonderful week,
