the guest room
The pillow case ($2.00 from Ross) was my inspiration for this room makeover. Click the pic to enlarge and see the pretty colored roses and ribbon! The $5.00 oops paint was the perfect match to the quilt ($12.00), sheet set ($6.00), throw pillows ($3.00 each) and curtains ($6.00) that I found on clearance at Ross, Target and TJ Max.
A display of Miranda's musical theater memorabililia... she was Dolly in "Hello Dolly" her 8th grade year... her dance/character shoes... and the necklace and wand from her role as the Godmother in "Cinderella" her Senior year.
My collection of soft, silky vintage pillowcases. I recently found the white wicker, rose fabric lined basket for $2.00 at a thrift store. Perfect for my pillowcases. Perfect for the guest room.
I displayed one of my favorite dresses that Miranda wore as a baby on a wire dress form... the doll-size pink wardrobe was found at a thrift store filled with old doll clothes... the round floral picture was ten cents... the crocheted apron for $2.00... and the rose hat box filled with vintage aqua hats for a dollar.
A week from today my sister Ginny comes for a visit! So I keep calling it 'Ginny's room'! We will definitely be breaking in the craft room with plans to sew and scrap and create. That is, when we are not shopping!
