The binoculars are the newest addition to my dressform.

This is actually my bridal veil. If I thought I could get away with displaying the actual dress, I’d do it, lol.

I have a sentimental attachment to the chest and dresser in my bedroom. They originally belonged to my Grandmother, and have been passed around my family, as needed.

Oh, and there’s my stinky shell from Exuma. What an ordeal to de-stink that thing. When I dug it out of the backyard, it still stunk. I shoved some paper towel inside, and voila! No more stink.

This is an antique book-plate from Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens, illustrated by Arthur Rackham. I have a few of these book plates around the house.

The little rocking chair, and teddy bear, Stinky,” belonged to my Dad. I love having them.

My dresser might look super cluttered, but I actually pared it down a bit. Don’t laugh! For real… I’m working on it.

I still have the rose my son wore for his Communion. I’m such a sap. Sigh…

That’s my husband as a little baby! I can’t believe we’re old enough to have black and white baby pictures. Uggh!

That’s my Grandparents in the little frame.

This Sacred Heart of Jesus print, hung in my Grandmother’s house for as long as I can remember. I’m happy to have it.

I decided to display all the little pins I had stashed away, on “Madame”, my pincushion doll. What good are they gonna do, taking up space in my jewelry box? I still want to get some pretty hat pins for her, but at least now, she has a purpose. For more on her, you can click here.

This is my Fairytale Tree. It’s about two years old, in its current form. I used to put out two big trees at Christmas. One with white lights and one with colored lights. The ornaments on this tree, used to hang on the tree with the colored lights.

Once I decided not to put up the second big tree, I couldn’t stand the thought of my ornaments just sitting in a box, somewhere in storage. I wanted to be able to enjoy them. I decided to keep them out in my bedroom, so I can enjoy the magic, all year-long. It’s a little eccentric, but hey. It works for me.

I call it my Fairytale Tree, because most of the ornaments depict Fairytale Characters. Alice in Wonderland, The Frog Prince, Cinderella, The Blue Fairy, The Little Mermaid, etc..

You’re probably wondering if it gets dusty. So, yes… It gets dusty. I’m constantly dusting it with little makeup brushes. It does require some upkeep. Don’t laugh but… I blow dry the dust off, too. And then every couple of months, I un-decorate it, to give it a thorough cleaning. It’s definitely work, but to me, it’s worth it.

I’ve had these prints in my bedroom since I was a kid.

I’ve filled my mirror with little inspirational quotes and bits of motivation. It’s a good daily reminder.

Now that you’ve seen my bedroom when it’s all cleaned up… This is what it usually looks like. Just keeping it real.

Laundry, Boxes, and in the corner behind the chest is the Orb Pendant Light we couldn’t hang. Wanna make a bet it’ll be sitting there for at least three months? Maybe six! Sheesh!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the tour, and have been inspired by one or two little ideas.

      Thank you! The bedroom is the most fun room to decorate. I don’t have to worry about what anyone else thinks, so I can be a little quirky and fun 🙂

Leave a comment. I'd love to know what you're thinking!
