Bedroom Makeover >>>

 After my crazy room redo the other day (turning my sewing room into James music room) I woke up the next morning wanting to do it all over again.  So I spent the entire next day rearranging our bedroom.  It was mostly a matter of just putting the furniture in different places, but it made such a difference in my spirit when I walk into our room.  And it made it so much bigger!  It always amazes me, no matter how many times I move things around, the difference it can make.  I have always been a re-arranger, I just love it.  Now our bedroom feels like a cozy little nook that makes me just want to curl up under the blankets and read under my twinkles.  I think twinkles were the biggest thing our home was missing.  I always had them everywhere in our old house.  I moved my mom's big dreamcatcher over our bed to catch our bad dreams.

This is James and Bella's side of the bed.  I moved in James old bookshelf (although all the books on it are mine).  And now his robot painting really stands out!  I also brought in one of my daddies pottery vases he made, and put two similar feathers and a peacock feather in it.  And my new vintage kitty planter that was gifted to me by a friend.

My corner of the bed now has my huge photo collage I made for my mom's funeral.  It was up on my dresser before and I couldnt really see the photos.  So now I can lay in bed and look at her before I go to sleep each night.  

 I just had to share this sweet guy.  He has been eating outside our front window alot lately.  Most deer run off as soon as they even think somebody is around, this one, is a bit nervous you can tell, but goes along his business.  I snapped this photo of him from inside looking out the window at him.  He could see me, but not hear me or smell me, I think he was a bit confused :)

Today is going to be an awesome day!  Ill tell you why later.


  1. Oh... my... gosh. Such a lovely bedroom!!! Also, that deer is adorable. (I love deers!!! I want a little collection of deer figurines, hehe.)

    Also, wahoo! Congrats, Kait!!!

  2. Wow super cozy indeed! After Christmas I'm hoping to redo my bedroom as well when my husband isn't around. It's the main room that should look the best but sadly since we never bring people into the room it's the least decorated. So sad.
    I really do like your string of lights! Cute!

  3. The word I think of for this is soothing. I don't know if it's the color combination or your easy way of sharing along with it. I just always feel soothed and put at ease when I come here.

    I love that you can see your Mom's pictures every night as you go to sleep. Great room redo!

  4. I absolutely love that deer!! So gorgeous, you are incredibly lucky to live so closely to such beautiful creatures.

    PS I love your huge dreamcatcher!

  5. Gorgeous room! I absolutely love that robot painting! And the deer - wow! What a great picture and so cool he let you get close enough to take it - I know how skiddish they are!

  6. the room looks great!! holy moly that photo of the deer is breath taking, it's really beautiful!

  7. I am definitely a re-arranger too. It would be impossible to move everything in my room right now, but when I moved everything to where it is now I just about double my floor space. I still don't get it!

    And I cannot get over this deer photo. It is stunning. You really took it through your window? Gah! It's just gorgeous! I could totally picture this hanging on my wall one day. I saw your re-stocked bookmarks and postcards on Ruche--maybe one day there will be a print of this deer for sale? (Wishful thinking!) ; ]

  8. The deer picture is lovely. Perfect expression! xxx

  16. Love the room! I have always wanted to put up Christmas Lights in my room myself, but there is no room for them with the way its organized now. Maybe I'll do a little revamp myself!
