Our New Nest - Bedroom Edition

I've been working on figuring out my new camera's features...what better way than to take pictures of our newly re-decorated home! So this post is the beginning of the "Our New Nest" blog series...


View from the doorway, taken with the Sepia setting...
loving the vintage slat door on the side of the picture!

My favorite magazine, Country Living, sits inside a wire basket that is on top of the burlap runner that I made.

View of our memory wall...pictures and mementos of our Heaven babies sit on the shelves and adorn the walls.

Doorway view in color, although it was taken after dark so I had to use the flash instead of natural light.

Blue pillows that I made...I blogged about them on this post.

A lace curtain hides the clothes hanging up in the closet. I made an old wine bottle into a vase for some of my pothos plants to root in. An "extra" wine glass serves as a tea light holder...nestled on top of wine corks in coffee beans, of course!

Front view of the bed...I love my little birdie pillow!

Wall hanging that I made using an old wooden cupboard door. Grace & Aaron United in Christ was stitched on top of the quilt that we used to have on our bed...I always liked the phrase and wanted to keep it in our bedroom, so I incorporated it into my wall-hanging. The key symbolizes Aaron holding the key to my heart...pretty sappy and sentimental, huh?!!!

Love the bedroom. ......but I absolutely LOVE the birdie pillow. I have to say I think that is my favorite. And I am envious that you made it. (My sewing skills stink!) I have had an infatuation with birds ever since I found out that Ava's name means like a bird. ( How fitting!)
Love

I had forgotten that's what Ava's name means...how special! I'm glad you told me that you like birdie things too...gives me some good ideas of what I can make for you sometime! ;)
