Adding and taking away in our Master Bedroom

The other day I posted about getting some things at Hobby Lobby and I had showed you where I placed some of them.  Today I'll show you a little more.  I replaced some of the pillows on our bed.  The bedding and drapery are Rose Tree, a gift from my husband.  He saw it while he was there on business.  The new pillows came from Hobby Lobby. The monogram on the black pillows are our initials and the one in the middle says Love.  Are you feeling the LOVE? lol

I added the wall sconces to either side of the painting, it came from Kirklands years ago and the sconces came from Ross.  If you enlarge the picture you can see that the detail work on the sconces are the same as on the frame.

We had a t.v. that used to set on the top of our armoire because it was to wide to fit inside it.  We took it to our other house not to long ago.  We had intended to get another one to replace it but, have discovered that not having one in the bedroom is a good thing. So I have more room to decorate that space now.  The topiary  is a recent purchase from Home Goods, I got two but haven't found a permanent home for the other one yet.

Nothing new in the pictures below.  I just like the two wall hangings and wanted to show you guys.  They came from Kirklands back in 2005. The two bunnies I originally got to put on the back porch, but decided since I like looking at them I would bring them indoors.  It's been over 100 degrees for the last 21 days and the extended forecast is calling for more of the same.  So, we don't go out and set on the porch in the evenings right now. 

I took the chair and ottoman out and moved it to the media room. Moved the chair from the guest bedroom into our room and set a table next to it.  It opens up the space quite a bit.  The lamp was a "freebie" when you purchased a Casablanca ceiling fan.  We got it when we lived in our previous home.  The old man and woman was given to me by my dad a few weeks ago.  My mother was a big fan of Home Interiors (just like I was).  But after she passed away dad kept them until he remarried and now I have them.  They fit right in with the rustic look.

The dresser, I must confess is my husbands catch-all.  I started to just take the picture like it was, but I couldn't bring myself to do it.  So, I waited until cleaning day, when I remove everything and put it in the bench at the foot of the bed. So, at least for part of one day I get to see it clean.  Then he comes home, sorts it back out into his piles and I sigh. Okay, tell me I want to know is it just my husband or are ya'lls the same way?  I'm serious, it really drives me nuts!!!

I hope you like the look of my new blog home. It has been a long labor of love, but I like it so much more than my other one and I want to say A BIG THANK YOU FOR FOLLOWING ME again. I'd love to hear what you have to say about it.
