Take a Tour!

Sonny painted the last room yesterday .... unless I can convince him to paint my stamp room.  I just don't know if I want to move everything - again - to paint!  He's not real anxious to paint anymore either.  Maybe I'll just wait a few months!!   The pink bedrooms turned out really pretty.  Here are a few pictures of one of the guest rooms.  It is my vintage room.  I have a lot of things from my grandmother's house - really old stuff!

This dressing table was my grandmother's.  Around the mirror and on the old hat stand are old hats from my Great Aunt Love.  She owned her own hat shop in Charlotte back in the 40s.  On the dressing table are long kid gloves, a comb and mirror set, an old camera, pictures of my mom as a baby and my grandmother when she was young.  On the right side is a pin-up calendar from 1946.  I will be posting pictures from it soon.

This is a baby gown that my grandmother made for me.  I hung it on the wall.  The trim on it matches the pink walls.

Me painting the saying on the wall.  It was a Decorative sticker that I had applied to the wall a few years ago.  When we painted, it got covered up, so I had to paint over it.

An old mirror from a dressing table - not sure who's it was.  Hanging on one side is a mink collar from a coat of my Great Aunts.  On the other side is an old fan from a funeral home - back in the day.   The beds were in my grandmother's room.  In between them is an old trunk that I use for a table between the beds. 
The lamp is new.  But do you notice the pink ribbon trim?  It is the pleated ribbon from the Stampin' Up Mini Catalog!  It is not just for card making!  Love it!
These are two pictures that I found at M's - I thought they added that vintage look to the room!
Hope you enjoyed the tour of my guest room!  Now Sonny & I are off to the movies.  Enjoy your weekend!

Getting Organized is a Messy Business!

 Well, today was not such a great day for us Steeler fans.  Our football season is over.  We played Denver today (think, Tim Tebow praying) for the wildcard playoff game and lost in overtime.  The Steelers really didn't deserve to win considering the way they played today.  I really didn't think we'd go very far in the playoffs this season but was sure hoping we'd get at least one more game.  So, I have packed up all my Steeler gear until next year.  Now I will have to cheer on another team I suppose.

I guess now I will have more time to clean out my stamp room instead of watching football.  I started yesterday and it is so over-whelming, I find myself standing in the room and scratching my head!  Sonny keeps poking his head in and laughing at me.  He has offered to get his shovel for me so I can shovel a path (or maybe shovel some stuff in the garbage!)  I have filled up 2 garbage bags though!  It's hard to tell but I have made a little progress.  But I have a long way to go!  I can't even see my desk it is so covered with stuff.  Here are a few pictures I took tonight.  Hopefully, next week this time, I can post some pictures that look much better!

This is my desk!

I even have things stacked in the hall!

I can barely get to my chair much less find the tv controller!
I do have a card to share with you that I did last week before I started the reorganizing!  It uses goodies from the Occasions Mini Catalog - the stamp, Take It to Heart, pleated satin ribbon, some Twitterpated DSP and the Adorning Accents Embossing Folder (pg 7).

I stamped the heart with White ink and embossed it.  I love this stamp!

Hope your week is a good one!
