A special corner

When I am sitting/laying in bed, this is my little view if I am not looking out the window...
I bought the large hand-painted jewelry armoire in Pacific Grove, Ca (one of our potential future living destinations) years ago on a whim and I really have loved it.  It has so many compartments for my costume jewelry and I keep two swimsuits and other clothing odds and ends in the lower drawers since I don't have THAT much jewelry.  :)
The sides expand out to hold necklaces, and the top opens up and has a mirror, ring slots, etc.

Next to the armoire are two framed photos that I took of the beach where my older son's college is.  I had them enlarged and put them in simple black frames with cream matting.
The photos remind me of him and make me feel peaceful all at the same time.

I know my photos are not great in this post....I was having a camera issue but younger son has fixed it so from here on out they should be better.
Over Christmas, we also got new lamps for the bedroom which have made a big difference.  Check them out below:
I used the existing lampshades and love the ginger jar bases of these lamps, which also blend with the room's feel better than the old pair did.
Hope winter is almost over for anyone reading!  :)  We are definitely seeing major signs of spring...and summer will follow in a heartbeat surely.

  2. I think it looks very sweet.

  3. I drop a comment each time I especially enjoy a article on a site or I have something to add to the
    discussion. It is triggered by the passion displayed in the
    post I browsed. And on this post "A special corner". I was actually excited enough to leave a comment ;-) I do have 2 questions for you if it's allright. Is it only me or do some of these responses look as if they are coming from brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at other online social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Could you list the complete urls of all your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

  4. What a fun cabinet. I have my jewelry in baskets and hanging on hands in a corner. Pacific Grove is a great "dream destination". We live in southern California, but our daughter is in San Francisco and hopes that we will move to northern California to be near her. Pacific Grove is a possibility.
