Master Suite Progress

Progress is being made in my master suite redo. This will be the first time in nearly 13 years of marriage we will have a put together room. It always seemed like the other rooms were more important to furnish. So this is long overdue. Here is a sneak peak at what I've finished so far!

My lovely romantic chandelier. I super heart this. You can also see a glimpse of my new color in the background. It is by glidden and called Stone White.

These are two pillows I was in the process of making. They were drying in this photo. They turned out so great. They look super cute on my bed. I finished them into small rectangular pillows.

Still plenty more to accomplish before it is ready for a full reveal. I am calling this phase one. I want to finish everything in the next few weeks. I'm so excited to finally get a grown up bedroom!!

Being Inspired

I'm sitting having a cup of tea, thinking of my love, and being inspired by the color of this ball of yarn. I often look at this yarn and think how much I love everything about it. Crazy I know, cause it is just a ball of yarn.

I am getting ready to paint my bedroom this weekend and found some other inspiration while looking at my sweet friends blog Nora Pearl. The camper she featured had me swooning. I love how these ladies take their little (some not so much) houses on wheels and turn them into something you would never expect! Having a tiny trailer and trying to girly it up as much as possible I get it. When my lemondrop is all set up I want to hang a sign at my campsite for people to stop and take a peak. My dad and I put so much work into making it pretty that its a shame we are the only ones who see it. So after pouring over the photos most of the morning I decided I needed to get on the ball and make my bedroom retreat. I want to surprise my Mr when he gets home. And to think the inspiration started with a camper and a ball of yarn ;)

Dusting Her Off

Starting to put plans on the calendar to take the Lemondrop out. Oh how I have missed her. I feel she has been neglected. There are some modifications that need to be made so that we can use her all summer long. (I need her to have a removable AC unit cause you can't camp past june in the SE without one) My daddy is also going to help me put in an electric fridge instead of the retro icebox I had originally put in. Lesson learned that you also can't keep things cold in an icebox without the actual blocks of ice and I have yet to find a place that sells them, and even with a drain it is a crazy mess when the ice melts.....But oh I just can't wait to get her out!
