Bedroom mantle for summer


These hot days are perfect for relaxing. My chaise lounge calls me 
when I want to read but do not want to unmake my bed.


The bedroom is visible from the parlor so I try to keep it made up. 
clearly I am not using the bedroom fireplace in this weather
 but is always nice to look at.


A vintage hat I bought on Etsy for a wedding I attended a
and  was also the wedding planner, accompanies 
a handmade deer box and vintage candlesticks and candle followers.



An etching I created of my son, pillows I made of leftover fabrics
and a huge tapestry pillow fill the corner...


thanks for visiting the homestead,
always appreciate the visit.

I am so grateful and flattered to have my last post featured at the beautiful
blog
thank you Paula!
