Bedroom Changes, Part 2


Lately I've been making some small additions to the dresser area of my master bedroom. The big owly is from the sale room at Anthropologie and I believe he's meant to be a flower pot as he has a huge opening in the back and a little tray underneath. Isn't he cute?


The Adler peace sign hand is a miniature version of this one, and was found at the Matthew Izzo sale I referenced last week. I think it's super-groovy.



Meanwhile, the clutch purses are a small sampling of a rather large collection I have of the vintage variety (the exception is the beaded ikat one by Moyna). More on this another day...


The other day I found a very cool bamboo-framed mirror at my favorite old furniture resale shop, Uhuru. We had been needing something bigger for the dresser, and this Hollywood Regency-feeling piece was the perfect solution. Not to mention it was already painted white, which meant no need to spray paint.



Finally, I got around to hanging some new prints that were gifted to me at Christmas. The goat photos are by Sharon Montrose, and they make me laugh every day.

Did you just frame paper or fabric for the kind of floraly green/blue/brown print that is to the right of the goats? I love that!

looks great! i adore your ceramic owl/flower holder. i'm keeping my eyes peeled for something like that or the ceramic monkey you have but so far no luck.

thanks for sharing the paint colour! i don't think i've seen valspar here...i'll have to look into it.

Better the little peace sign hand and not the giant angry fist!

Is Mr. Sea Lion wearing the animal charm bracelet from J.Crew? I really liked that one!

Thanks so much for your kind comments!

To Amanda, yes, it's just a sheet of gift wrap in an Ikea frame. The Ikea frames are almost the exact same size as a standard sheet of wrap....

To Kay, if I can find a link for the monkey or owl I will send it to you. I know the monkey is made by Two's Company... Oh, and the Valspar paint is from Lowe's. I'll see if I can find a similar color for you from a brand like Benjamin Moore...

And to Wolf, it is totally the J.Crew bracelet!
