Just A Little Guest Room Love...

Another project for the B&B guest room.  I am just plugging away on projects for this room, as I have never had a room designated just for a guest room.  I have shared a guest room with my craft room, but with the new house I have a real guest room and a real craft room.  So today's project is just a little guest room love...





I started with a left over piece of a beautiful flour sack I purchased in a pack from Fleet Farm, they are inexpensive and beautiful!  I hand cut out 2 hearts and on one piece I sewed on 4 different pieces of lace... I LOVE lace! Then added a few buttons in the colors of the new quilt for the bed.  Putting right sides together I sewed around the heart, leaving a small opening for turning and stuffing.  I then snipped small cuts around the heart before turning it right side out, also remember to snip the point off, but be careful not to cut into the thread.  She has a beautiful point on her, but the pictures don't show it very good... wished I would have seen that earlier!  And then I stuffed it, and hand stitched the edge closed.





 I tied a bow made with silk ribbon I received on a present some time ago...I never throw anything beautiful away!  I added a small strand of white pearls under the bow and then sewed them onto the heart.  My heart is about 8" wide by about 7" high.  And she is beautiful!  One more project done for the new room and it will be making it's reveal soon...




Just wanted to share how much my Aero Garden (this one is petunia's) has grown from a week or so back when I first showed it to you.  I have had to raise the top almost to the top height...as the plant grows you don't want the light too close and burn the plants.  I think I'll be seeing some buds soon...

When I was a teenager, my neighbor made me a sweet little heart shaped pillow like this.
I always save my ribbons, too. It can always be used somewhere!

Isn't it fun decorating a room? Coming up with those little touches that make it feel like home? The heart is so precious and anyone would love seeing that in their room. Thanks for sharing!

It's so nice to have a guest room all to its own. Your touches are lovely.
