Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!
This week at work we had a baby shower for a coworker expecting a little girl. We were decorating a conference room for the shower and I thought it would be nice to have some pink roses. I brought in this little bouquet holder that I bought at the Alameda Antique Faire many years ago. Then I picked some roses that are growing along the parking lot of my company! There must over 50 of these rose bushes and the roses are starting to dry out so I didn't see any harm in picking a few. Every day when I take my lunch time walk I pass by these and I always want to pick some! I can't believe I finally had the nerve to do it!
I decided to bring the bouquet home and placed it on my bedside table! Amazing what a little pink did in my bedroom! It makes me smile every time I walk in there!
It just adds such a romantic touch!
I wish I could afford to buy fresh flowers for every room in my apartment every week! Now that the rent in Silicon Valley is sky-rocketing, I can barely afford rent so buying flowers every week is a luxury I can no longer justify!
I still haven't decided if I should paint the gold mirror I found awhile back on Craigslist or leave it gold...
Seashells and roses...the perfect combination against my white bedroom! I love the beach cottage look! The Pacific Ocean is a 30 minute drive away but when I'm home I feel like I'm near the ocean!
At night when I go to sleep I can hear the traffic going by and it sounds a little like waves rolling in but you just don't get that sound of the waves crashing as they hit the shore...I still fall asleep every night pretending its the sound of the ocean not the sound of cars! haha!
My bedroom is an ongoing project but I'm finally getting to the look I want. I just wish I could add a crystal chandelier but I'm not allowed to hang anything from the ceiling in my apartment!
