My Garden Bedroom

Hello Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a pleasant Monday.

The weather here has been nothing short of glorious and I couldn't resist a bit of fun yesterday afternoon we were loading all of the goodies to go to my clients home
(You might remember me sharing her bedroom plans with you a short while ago. )

we decided to do a fun little photo shoot of sorts right here in our backyard!

My husband played along and actually set up the bed in my garden before he disassembled it and placed it on the trailer.
So....I thought I would share some of the pictures I took of the bed in my garden!

I have always wanted to do this!
And this was the perfect opportunity!

I will be at her home for the next few days.
And will share some photos of the completed room when I get finished.
In the meantime...
I hope you enjoy my garden bedroom!

Also, As you can see...
Mandy with AlaParisienne Designs has completed my blogs new do!
I love it and when I return will be adding stuff to the pages she gave me in my menu bar.
Enjoy the next few days...
When I return,
I will finally be posting about my trip to Rebecca's! And my precious new friends amazing store I stopped at on my way!
She has the most amazing store right here in Indiana...and right down the road from me!
Is that not to good to be true?
She has also agreed to participate in our French Flea Market!
The Lord is so Good!
Here are a few pictures of her precious store!

Damask Designs

She is only open by appointment and for  little events...which makes each visit all the more special

The entire store is filled the most amazing wonderments!

All of my favorite things...
wrapped up like a present ...

In a dreamy little cottage...
on an old country road! (sigh!)
Pure Bliss!
