The first thing I wanted to do was make some changes in my bedroom. I thought I would show you what I did to my bedside area first. Of course my sister looked at it and said, "I thought you were making fall changes to your room" Duh, I didn't mean I was stringing pumpkin cutouts across the ceiling. Seriously!!
What I did do was put away the summery quilt and replace the pink flower dishes.
I moved my wonderful old ironstone pitcher from the top of my bedside table to the bottom shelf.
It is rather large and was taking up a lot of space. I replaced it with this adorable French style phone from the 1970s that I found a couple of weeks ago at an auction. I think it is perfect with the mid century lamp.
I couldn't decide what to do with my little pink milking stool that was sitting by my chair. I found something at a yard sale last week that I wanted to replace it with (I'll show that another time). I eventually decided just to place it behind the chair and stack some of my books on it. (yes, those are cords. It's real life)
I really wanted to change up what was displayed on the top of the hanging shelf. I had just kind of thrown up some roses plates and an old print, but I wasn't feeling the love for it. I think I just wanted it to be simpler. So I started with an old framed photo and added some antique bottles, books, and a sweet bird.
Of course I still have my mom's baby clothes displayed and just because I wanted a touch of color, whimsy, and to still keep a bit of summer I added a blue straw hat.
I think I am starting to feel the simple and serene love for fall.
