Bits & Pieces / I Was Featured

I'm sorry that I've been absent for a while, just wanted to let you know that I'm still here...  I'm getting closer to putting my guest room together, here's some bits and pieces I've been working on...

I've never had a proper guest room so I'm starting from scratch with a very small budget... basically what I've got is, what I've got!  This wood cabinet is a blanket chest that my dear sweet Dad made, as well as the wood frame in the background.  He loved to make primitive furniture and now that he is gone, we will treasure them forever!!

Anyway, I'm still here, checking out more sites, finding more inspiration and gathering more idea's...I don't think it'll ever be done, let's just say it evolves as I think all good rooms do, just like life!

Sorry for the dark shot of my sweet lace curtains, this room is so sunshiney, I just could not get a good photo!  See my little candelabra...I need to spray paint it, but don't think I'll wait for Spring, so I guess it's back into the snow bank for me!

I joined my very first Link Party...and I was Featured!  I joined Brag Monday over at The Graphics Fairy and my French Fringed Pillow was can check it out here

Thanks Karen, it was a lot of fun...and good for my soul!

Hope you all have a great weekend, get some rest...and do something FUN!  I have craft day tomorrow with my Cousin and my Sister... I better go pack!

Hi, Pendra! I've just returned to blogland after an absence myself.

Looks like you're really busy but it also looks like it's coming together nicely -- I love your pillow,and your accessories table and lace curtains look charming. It's going to be such a nice and cozy room when you've finished.

Anyway, wanted to say hi!
