Making it lovely

I LOVE decorating but have been unable to get over the impracticality of it all.  I look around us here in Mexico and see that some, not all, but some are barely able to afford a place to LIVE.  The problem is, this has kept me from embracing my job as homemaker!  Chris is out and about so who’s job is it to make our place homey and restful?  Mine.  No, our house doesn’t need to be decorated perfectly and look AMAZING for it to be homey but there is something to making it lovely.  It’s good for it to be a place we like to just BE sometimes.

I decided when we were in the States visiting that I would pick up some fabric to make pillows and curtains for our living room and also try to make our bedroom a more lovely place.  The bedroom is the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night so it is important to have an orderly, restful and nice bedroom….at least that’s what I believe.

A while back my mom ordered us some new sheets so while we were visiting we kept our eyes open for a good deal on some kind of bedspread and OH we found the PERFECT one.

I haven’t gotten around to fixing up our living room but I finally did our bedroom and now I LOVE it.  I now read books to the girls before bed in there and just enjoy being there.  Our bedroom has often been the dumping zone–ya know–the place I’d throw the pile of clean laundry to fold later and then the box of magazines that need to be gone through and any other usightly mess that I didn’t want in the front room.  Well not now!!

Here's the before.  (realistically)

Okay, this is the before pic using whatever blankets we had to keep us warm.  Not terrible just not LOVELY :)

And here it is now!  Oh so lovely.

It's amazing how much of a difference a simple bedspread, a throw and a pillow makes!

We found the bedspread at Ross for super cheap then my mom got me the fuzzy rug as an extra treat for my feet :)  Chris called it the dead animal.  I think he's just jealous that he doesn't have one for HIS feet :)
