Just starting out

Welcome to my new blog site. I thought I would join the rest of the world and start blogging what is going on in my life.

I stumbled upon Cindy's lovely blog at http://romantichome.blogspot.com/ and quickly fell in love with her whole home. So I decided to try to recreate it as closely as I could.

Since she found most of her things at thrift stores, garage sales and flea markets I know I can't just copy it but rather I have to be thrifty and crafty and find things that can give the appearance of this romantic cottage look.

Today I ventured out to the thrift stores and found a few items I was thrilled with. I spent less then $10 so that was even better! I even found a headboard for only $3.00 but I was to scared to get it as I was thinking I may not be able to paint it up cute. But now that I'm home I can't stop thinking of it and so I'm going back to get it......if it's still there.

I've posted a few photos to share those items with you.

I now have lots of things ready for my new bedroom. I have lace curtains, bird cages, candles and my good friend Sandra is going to let me go through her collection of vintage hankies so I can have a swag up just like Cindy.

So follow along with me and watch my bedroom get transformed.

I'm so honored that you are using my bedroom as your inspiration! That is the nicest compliment I could ever receive!

Welcome to blogging, I hope you find it as fun as I have!
