My Cottage Style Bedroom

Pin It Now!


My Cottage Style Bedroom, originally uploaded by Romantic Home.

Thanks so much to all of you that left such sweet comments on my last post. Blogging has become so much fun for me that I can't imagine not doing it! I never expected to love it so much. It's like a job at times, but it's a job I LOVE. I stress about what I will post about tomorrow, next week, the week after that but I've learned that it just sort of comes to me day by day and I shouldn't worry about it. I've watched my blog go from very few readers to now over 500 a day! I still can't believe that over 500 of you are reading this and that you keep coming back to read this day after day. I also can't believe that I started this blog over two years ago. Time does fly when you are having fun! I started this blog originally as a knitting blog but I never had enough confidence to post pictures of my knitting. I never knew at the time that there were home decorating blogs. How ironic that I named my knitting blog "romantic home" . I'm rambling but I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who keep coming back to read my blog and for all your wonderful comments. Your comments bring me so much joy!

I know I've posted pictures of my bedroom before but since I can't get the pictures of the cute apron I made off of my digital camera and onto my computer to show you I'm posting old pictures of my bedroom. To see my bedroom makeover click here.

As one of the 500, I vote for blurry pictures! I miss you when you don't post. Love, love, love your bedroom pictures. Got to fly... time for school!

Your bedroom is beautiful! Thanks for posting the pictures again. I didn't know you when you first posted them! Can you say where you got the cute cottage sign?

Penny, The cottage sign came from http://www.shabbycottageboutique.com/ I don't see any on her website but you could probably email her if you are interested. She paints them herself.

Such a pretty bedroom, love that hankie valance- and all the neat touches you have done to the room! I got a cute book yesterday and it had a hankie valance like yours and used painted clothespins on it.
Glad you will still be blogging :)

One I'm of your 500 readers and would rather have blurry pictures than no pictures or blogging from you at all.
Your bedroom is simply gorgeous!
I started my blog for my scrapbooking and have shown one page - haven't had too much time to share nor to much time to scrapbook.
I just love this bloggin' thing to and am amazed at the wonderful people I've met through mine.
Love your blog and I'm glad your break wasn't that long.

have a great Wednesday.
Blessings,
Sandy :)

Isn't it funny how our camera have become an extension of our own arms! The really pricey cameras are not a great as they are cracked up to be. Mine was well under a hundred and I love it.
