Our Guest Bedroom

        Hello everyone,

   A few days ago I made a few changes
in our guest bedroom.
Nothing major...... just moved the antique
bed so that it is on an angle on the other
side of the room.

Our home is a farmhouse and is almost
    100 years old. It is not fancy but it is 
I am adding a few Christmas touches
to the room. 

A tea tray.....I must be on a 
diet today, no scones!
The wallpaper has been on for
several years now.
I bought the toile wallpaper for
$2 a double roll at Mardens
in Bangor.
The comforter and shams were
a thrift shop find.

You might have noticed my passion
for transferware and toile,

                                                            The handmade bedspread was a $5.
                                                             yard sale find~ I love it!

                                                                 The armoire was turned on an
                                                                  angle also.

Just a few simple changes in our
guest gave the room a whole
new look.

                                               My thoughts and prayers are with the
                                                          people of France and we pray for
                                                          peace throughout the world during
                                                          these tragic times.

                                                                                       Take care,

I can never get enough of your lovely home Carolyn. This is yet another beautiful room. It is just like getting a warm loving hug.

Your guests must never want to leave.

Have a great week.

A lovely room, Carolyn. Love the armoire and the pom-pom curtains. I think a lot of us are praying for France these days. Such a tragedy!

Autumn blessings,

Liebe Carolyn,Paris ist keine 300 km von hier entfernt- der Terror ganz nah, so wie auch die Hoffnung und der große Wille ,sich nicht von diesen Verrückten einschüchtern zu lassen! Die deutschen Fussballer spielen deshalb heute wieder(Sie waren in der Nacht in Paris im Stadion beim Spiel gegen Frankreich,als die Bomben um sie herum hoch gingen)Unser Herz ist voller Trauer mit allen ,aber wir werden uns dem Terror nicht beugen!
Gerne würde ich ein Gast bei Dir sein, Dein Zimmer ist so sehr einladend! Herzlichst Susan aus Deutschland!

The room looks so beautiful and I don't think I would want to leave. I have a teapot just like that.
