I love me some old framed prints.
From the 20's.
From the '30's.
From the 40's.
At which point my love comes to a screeching halt.
I had collected quite a few when I lived in Watertown, and needed a place to hang them
in my (now, not so) new condo.
I hung them all over the walls of my guestroom, along with some plates I had knocking about in my
I had found 4 prints years ago that look to me like they come from the 40's.
I hung them on either side of the bed, tucked into the dormer.
This is a weird shot, I was trying to show both sides of the dormer at the same time.
I am not an awesome photographer.....
I am very sad.....
the prints have really cute mats, with a scalloped edge.
And I love the way the plates work off of them.
Over the chair in the back is another print that I think is also from the 40's.
Betsy's decorating rule number 74.....
If there's an empty space on the wall.....
Over by the other chair, the one I plan on replacing with something larger.....
I have more floral prints....
I love it when I find shapes other than square or rectangle.
Round frames are a nice change.
I hung some prints in between the closets doors....
because I had them.....
and because there was an empty spot!!!!!
I'm not sure of the vintage of these babies, I've had them so long, I barely even notice them.....
One thing I made a point of, and something I am partial to......
is that they are all framed in white or a cream color.
I love the old white frames that so many florals have.
On a different point.....
Let me show you guys the view out the window.
It's the nicest view in my home, and I wouldn't have had it if I hadn't added the new dormer.
It looks out over the wooded hills.
Now, ain't that purdy???????.
A big advantage to an iron bed, is if you only have room in front of a window for the bed placement, the headboard doesn't block the light, or view.
The last item I want to share with y'all
(I'm down heah in the south....)
is, the bedskirt.....
I had this skirt made for a different bed, that wasn't as high.
So when I changed the bed to my iron one above, the skirt was too short, and no longer hit the floor.
Well, the fabric was mucho expensivo, so I just used what I had.....
and lo and behold!!!!!
I REALLY LIKED THE LOOK!!!!!
This was years and years and years ago.....
(around 30.....oy oy oy oy oy)
And now, whenever I do a cottagey look,
I make the bedskirt short!!!!!
Even shorter than what I have in the picture above.
I think I have exhausted all that I have to share on this room.
I bet you can't wait to see what I have next up my sleeve!!!!!
