A bed of roses...

The last time I showed you our bedroom, the bed itself was a rumpled mess (thanks to our Baby!!). I promised to share pictures when the bed is made and, as usual, Baby insisted on being in the photos (she's such a little ham!)

I have a couple of different coverlets or quilts for the bed and this is one of my favorites. Who can resist lush pink roses against a robin's egg blue background? Baby and I certainly can't!

The back set of pillows are covered with white eyelet shams...

... and the front pillows sport vintage Battenburg lace shams...

...with beautifully embroidered rosebuds.

A small accent pillow with roses and pink pom pom trim (from a little girl's department) sits between all the other pillows.

With it's 'sweet dreams' message, bluebird, and pink roses, I decided to indulge the 'little girl' in me.

I thought this photo of Baby was hilarious. To me, it looks like she is climbing out of a (non-existent) hole in the center of the bed!

So after all of the bed-making chores are done....

... it's time to relax and enjoy the long overdue delicious spring breeze coming in through the open bedroom window!

In my next post I'll share some thoughts we've been throwing around  about how to give this "stuck in the 80's, half colonial/primitive, half shabby cottage" bedroom a much-needed facelift!

I'm linking up to My Romantic Home's Show & Tell Friday. Be sure to stop by and see what everyone is sharing this week!

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

What a beautiful bed, Donna! Love that comforter! So very pretty with the lace slips. I had to laugh at the photo of Baby crawling out of her pretend hole. It DID look like that! Can hardly wait to see what you do with the rest of the room, my friend! :)

Your bed is beautiful but it was Sweet Kitty who brought me running over here! I also have a precious b&w kitty. Yes...always on the bed if I want to do something. :)

I love the bedding! I really would like a more cottage feel in our bedroom but I'm not sure my husband would jive with it. Baby seems very content. My cat's are loving the open windows too.

See you next week-end?

Your bedding is absolutely gorgeous! Love the crispy eyelet and the Battenburg lace.

That picture of Baby is pretty funny! She's a doll.

Have a great day!

Lovely bedding! Thanks for stopping by my little blog! Maggie is a terrier mix we think. We adopted her from an animal shelter.
