Sneaky Peekies of a Bedroom Makeover and Farmer’s Market Love

No…it is not my granddaughter’s space…still working on it . . .a slow process.

It is “MY” bedroom . . .

~ ~ while in Atlanta for the Haven Conference, Kim and I went to Pottery Barn . . .

~ ~ ~ ~ no surprise on that!

I found bedding that was on super clearance.

I have had it for a while; however, I needed to find some coordinating fabric for pillows.


So my friend Linda to the rescue…making the euro shams and 2 pillows for me.


There are a couple of additions in the room from HomeGoods.

My friend Sherri took a pic of us….

We filled every inch of the van with 18 large mums and countless pumpkins.

  4. It looks gorgeous! I am so envious of your decor – there is too much wildlife around here for plants/pumpkins/other edibles to be left out front overnight. I need some fake stuff that looks good!!!

  25. Hi Shirley,
    Your bed is beautifully layered! And look at all your autumnal goodies!! Cannot wait to see your porch decorated. Enjoy this last weekend of summer.
    Cheers from DC,

  26. Looking fabulous, Shirley!

    I picked up a pumpkin or two yesterday at a local stand, while we were house hunting. It is funny how things work out. I think we may have found a house with a back porch. Still debating! The hunt is fun, whether or not.

    The link party sounds great!

  27. Wow! You’re on a roll! LOVE the pumpkins. I don’t have any real pumpkin yet, just leftover faux ones from last year…and no mums. Guess I’d better get busy.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  31. I love your new bedding Shirley, such pretty colors! I wish we had a PB outlet nearby, you always find the best deals there. Can’t wait to see all the changes around your house and especially your porch all decorated for fall. I had so much fun at the Farmer’s Market with you and thank you so much for showing me how to stack the pumpkins, I had no clue how to do that or how to choose the pumpkins. I finished up our porch yesterday just in time for fall.
