Spring in the French Style Guest Room

I have been slowly making some changes in the French style guest room over the last couple of months. It all started with new checked pillows in a beautiful French blue that I found on One Kings Lane. When I saw the photo on OKL the pillows were a small check, but when they arrived I realized that they were not what I ordered, but I kept them anyway. I hate sending stuff back.

The new blue checked pillows prompted me to buy the white quilt  to go along with the euro shams I already had, but wasn't using. I had originally bought them for my room, but they were just too white. Having four beds I kept them anyway since I knew I would use them somewhere. I have a slight thing for pretty bedding. wink

Spring Change Up...... French Country Style

 It's time for our monthly French Country Style Series where I and three other bloggers who love French Country or French style share some decorating ideas. Their links will be at the end of the post.

Since it is spring it is time to change things up a bit  around the house so I changed up the vignette on the tufted ottoman in the great room again. This vignette has a French country feel to it. I just grabbed some things I had on hand and it all works well with the rest of the room.

Saturday Snippets

On this cold Saturday, yes, the cold has temporarily returned again after being 80 a few short days ago, I'm working on a project that I have put off for a bit. 

Two down and four to go!

The 90 Cent Cow and Other Things

I was able to get out last Monday and go to an antique mall that I haven't visited in quite some time. I wasn't really looking for anything in particular, but I did happen to find a few things. I thought I would show you some peeks before I show you how they are being used. 

Y'all know I collect old quilts and I found a couple at good prices. I love the pastels in this one.

New Location and Styling for the Chippy Cabinet

 Did you know that in just ten minutes you can make a change in your home and create a fresh look? If you are a regular reader then you know that I know this all too well. Welcome to our monthly series, 10 Minute Decorating, where I along with three other fabulous bloggers share some quick ideas to get a new look in your home.

A few weeks ago I shared this chippy cabinet from Decor Steals styled in my sun room.

I wanted to place my fiddle leaf fig back in this spot so I found a new home for the cabinet.

Wow Us Wednesdays #214

It's party time again. Hope your week is going well. I know some of you are still experiencing winter, but I wish you could see all the blooming trees here. I drove to my favorite antique mall yesterday and it was such a pretty drive with the pear and cherry trees in full bloom. So hold on spring will be in your area soon.

Since our last party I shared:

Here are some features from last week.

Kammy's husband said he didn't know how to build a mantel. Well, I say he does and you must see what they started with. Check it out at Kammy's Korner.

My Mind Never Stops

Yesterday I shared the brass lamp base sporting its new look and how I had it placed on the buffet in the dining room. All I had was the marble lamp, a vegetable dish and the lamp base on there. Well, I wish I could turn my mind off sometimes. After looking at those three on the buffet it just looked sort of blah to me so after changing up what was on the dining room table I decided to use some of those things on the buffet instead of putting them away and this is what I ended up with.

Guest Bath Progress Update

It's hard to believe this bathroom isn't finished yet, but it's not. Almost though....almost.

The bath and shower kit was supposed to be in last Monday, but it still isn't in. Hopefully soon.

Transforming Old Brass

Several weeks ago I discovered a blogger, who along with her husband, is transforming a ranch house into a French beauty. I love every room that she decorates and she also has a shop full of great items like she displays in her home. This blogger is Cindy at Edith and Evelyn Vintage Interiors

Well, I had to check out her shop and I just happened to order something.

On My Dresser

A couple weeks ago I took y'all shopping with me on St. Simons Island and told y'all I bought something from a cute shop we found.

I specifically bought something you can see in this room. Well, actually a pair of them.
