New Month - New Decorations

Image from Yahoo

It's a new month, and for me, that means some obvious decorating.

It's hard to believe how quickly January has gone, but then all I have to do is look at how much I accomplished and I know where it went. It was a very good month, filled with lots of productive blessings. It just shows me how much I can accomplish when I set my mind to things.

The perfect time for me to change things up is on Saturday morning, after a hearty home made breakfast and a clean kitchen.

I have set time aside to change the sheets and straighten our bedroom. It makes Monday a little less chore heavy. With this being the first Saturday of the month, the timing is perfect to make some changes.

One of my favorite places to decorate and not necessarily obvious, is the bedroom. We make all these beautiful quilts, so why not.

I'm finding some nooks that are helping me to use, not just make and store, some of my projects.

This chair sit in an alcove just outside the attic/bedroom. It's a little corner that would otherwise be wasted. It was the perfect place to put this chair. I covered the seat with a little round tablecloth I made years ago and don't want to give up just yet. 

The pillow was made using one of Jenny's designs. I don't know if it's still available, but she has lots of other beautiful designs. It looked a little bridally and I thought it was perfect for Valentine's. The vintage fabric was from an aunt that passed away many years ago.

And this sweet little bunny was purchased years ago from a little shop that was located in a house not far from Mom's. Unfortunately, it's no longer there. She is the perfect little addition.

I am absolutely thrilled with my first UFO finish of the year and couldn't wait for today to come so that I could get it on the bed !!!!

These were also made a while ago, a perfect addition to my new ensemble, don't you think?

Not sure how I came up with the yoyo pillow, if it was a pattern or something I just thought up using some valentine fabric scraps.

"Bliss" is from Crabapple Hill. Again, I'm not sure if this is still available, but lots of other great designs.

Thanks for stopping by.

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion for ever.

I really like the heart pillow, well both of the pillows, really. They look so good with the quilt, too! Jenny's design, and the way you set things up, is so perfect for that adorable bunny doll. You have such a knack for the feminine. I missed that gene. =)
