Good Afternoon Friends!! It turned cold here overnight in South Carolina. The sun is shining though so it is a beautiful day.
I am posting some more pictures of the house. You are proably bored by now at my attempt of decorating.

The guest bedroom!!

For some reason I did not get a full shot of the bedroom. But I think by the photos I did post you will get the jest of the style of the bedroom. I love the pale colors and spring like feeling it projects!

These little pale blue and white figurines, I have collected over the years at yard sales. They are depictions of family life. I just love them.

A close up of the ladies I have sitting on the dresser.

I just love this little bunny. I have her sitting on a little ivory heart stool. I found both at yard sales.

I love the green frame on this Rose print. Of course I bought this at a yard sale as well.

This rose print is another yard sale find! It hangs over the little white heart table.

My hubby bought this picture for me right before we were married. It has a pine frame and matches the other pine furniture in that room. Also I do not have a headboard for that bed, so the big picture kind of functions as a head board. A real head board is on my list of things to get or look for at Yard Sales.

This is a close up of the guest room bedding. All the little pillows I had for several years now, I don't remember where I got them. The comforter is a Jacqueline Smith from K-Mart. I am getting impressed with the quality of K-Marts home section.

This is the only window the room has. I bought the ivory drapes at Target. I made the Valance.

This little pine night stand matches the dresser. The lamp is a Good Will find. All the rest of the stuff are yard sale finds!

I love this little shabby chic cabinet. I bought it at Ole Time Pottery! The lamp on top is a Goodwill Find. Of course I had my little yard sale pink doll and the sheep bank.

You have seen me in the past post this pine dresser I have had in the guest room. I did change the decorations on the top.

A close up of my little heart table.

This little country heart table I have had for years. I know the country heart thing is out of date,but I still like mine! The Roses I bought at Ole Time Pottery. The vase they are in came from a mothers day flower bouquet sent to me by daughter. Of course I had to keep my little sheep. I think it is so cute.

The Dining Room!

My china hutch. My country rose china is in the bottom. I got most of my crystal suff and odd and end china in the hutch part!

This bronzie like plate holder thingie I found at a yard sale. I paid a dollar for it. The plate is a mother's plate that was given to me by my children years ago. It matches my Old Country Rose Chine,by Royal Albert or Dalton, I am not sure which,LOL.

The picture on this wall I bought at Big Lots. The lamp is a left over from my husbands house before we were married.

I bought this clock at Ross's. I really like how it looks!

The Dining Room! I found the beige drapes at a yard sale. The Valances came from Target!


  1. Susan,
    Your house is lovely! Anyone would love being a guest in your guest room.
    The dining room and kitchen is lovely too! You have done a lovely job decorating.

  2. Hi Susan,
    Your home is so pretty and you have done so much since I last could stop by for a visit. I love all your treasures and you find the best items at yard sales. I need to shop with you girlfriend.

    Thank you for your visit and get well wishes. Sorry I did not post about it, but sent a few emails while I was in the hospital. I may have not had your email handy to send you my updates. I had chest pain so they had to rule out heart problems. All is good with that, but have esophagus issues or gall bladder. Both are being tested in the next 2 weeks.

    Good luck in my giveaway.
    Have fun decorating sweets, everything looks gorgeous!
    Bless you, Celestina Marie XO

  14. Enjoyed the tour of your lovely home. I know you are so happy to be in it. The dresser in your guest room is gorgeous! Any thoughts on painting it white too? You may be apprehensive like me. But it does look like you've done some other white pieces in there.

  15. Your house is so bright - I love all the sunlight! I'm a new follower!

  16. Hi Susan,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog. I see you have grandchildren in Okinawa; my son was stationed there for a while when in the Air Force.
    Hopefully they are far enough away from all the nuclear issues. How frightened you must be for them! I'll add them to my prayers.
    Love the dresser in your guest room!
    That's a stunning piece!

  17. Hi Susan! What a beautiful home you have. I must say, I am VERY impressed with the bedroom valance that you made. It's lovely! You must get so much light with those big windows! We are having COLD weather here in the northeast again.. down in the 30's ... brrrr. Have a great weekend!... Donna

  18. Hi Susan,
    I love your art work and Dining room!! How pretty everything is... your home looks wonderful.

    Have a great weekend,

  19. I think you're doing a wonderful job decorating. I love your dining room and kitchen!

    Keep warm!

  20. Hi Susan!
    Oh your guest room and dining room look lovely! So many beautiful and sweet touches! And that KMart spread is preally pretty! I haven't been to Kmart in quiet awhile. I will have to check them out! okay, now I have to play catchup and check out your kitchen post! Oh, and next week will be my very first linky party "Thrifty Things Friday". if you get a chance, I would love to have you linkup. You always have wonderful thrift finds!

  21. I enjoyed the tour of your lovely home. The guest room is very pretty. You certainly found some treasures and the yard sales. The lamps from Goodwill are pretty too. I usually don't have that kind of luck at our thrift stores but I don't have a good eye for that either. I am always amazed at what people find at yard sales and the thrift stores. I have a cousin that can go to the Dollar store and walk out was some amazing things and I can go in there and never see them. I guess I need more practice! LOL!
    Have a great weekend.

  22. Susan, Your home is looking so pretty and cozy! I love all of the pretty rose prints you have and the guest bedroom is so inviting! I love being thrifty too, it is amazing how much money you can save! Happy Pink Saturday sweet friend.

  23. Hello sweet Susan! I agree with you, we are very blessed to have our Sweet Pea, she is so precious! :) I was so delighted when Patty made her that little blanket..such a lovely gesture!
    Your home is just beautiful, I know you have to be so excited to be decorating and having fun with it all. I too decorate from yard sales, goodwill and other inexpensive can make so many cute things out of other people's stuff! lol
    Have a great day
    missy :)
