{ An Award & A Celebration }

Hey! Look what I got! It's my very first award!

Angie from Sandals and Daisies was kind enough to award it to me. Isn't she so nice?!! Anyway, the rules say that I have to nominate seven blogs. You know that I like to pass along good blogs for you to read anyway, so here is my list:

1. My Romantic Home
2. Just a Girl
3. A Soft Place to Land
4. Nesting Place
5. Notes from A Cottage Industry
6. Sadie Olive ~ le journal
7. The Inspired Room

Whew! That was tough. There are way too many blogs that I love to choose just seven. I do want to talk about the last one on the list. Melissa Michaels has an amazing, I mean AMAZING, blog. If you ever need some decorating inspiration go visit her at...The Inspired Room. You will not be dissapointed. Every post is beautiful! And she is doing something fun next week. She will be having an Inspired Room's Celebration Week & Fall Nesting Kickoff. Check out the details in this post. She will be giving away prizes & posting loads of Fall ideas. I am already getting excited for Fall so, you know I will be looking at her blog every day that week! {Okay, I look at it every day anyway}.

And, finally, here's a picture of my bedroom.

I have been thinking about redoing it for, oh, I don't know, like five years. It really is the last room to get decorated. I am having a hard time figuring out exactly what I want to do in there. I like too many different styles, colors, etc.

Notice how there's nothing hanging above our bed. Hey, we live in earthquake territory here people. So, any ideas for what do you do for that? We also need to redo the master bath. {you don't want to see pictures of that, yikes!} but, I can't decide what I want to do in there either. So I do nothing. Good plan, don't you think?

Congrats on the award....and I am sure that you have already thought of this but what about vinyl lettering above the bed? Atleast you know you wouldn't get hurt an earthquake!!

Very fun to get an award from your friend! Your blog is always fun to read, you can tell you have a great sense of humor!

Angie said...

Hey Jamie!

Have you thought about fabric? Maybe tack some fabric on the wall and use crown molding or trim around it..nailing it onto the wall...that way nothing is gonna fall on your head! We have a sheer tent canopy over our bed and I love it!


Chris said...

Thank you for the award, Jamie! I'm honored, and I'm in love with Melissa too. I call her "the Oprah". I LOVE the color on the walls in your bedroom. What are you going to do? Thoughts?

Kasey said...

I remember you leaving me a comment when i showed pics of my bedroom.
It's a hard room, but it should really be the one you love the most.
If i lived closer, i'd help you in a heart beat!
great pics!

Jamie said...

Chris-I'm not sure what I'm going to do. Help!

and Kasey-why couldn't you live closer so you could help me?

I do have a few pictures I've pulled out of magazines & the internet that seem to have a theme. I will do a post on it soon so I can get ya'll's help on it. Thanks for caring!

Congrats on your award, and me oh my you put me in some might good company! I'm not worthy!

Thanks so much!!! I really am honored that you thought of me!

You could hang a quilt or tapestry of some sort from velcro, that would be pretty and keep you safe in an earthquake! Or, if you bolted a rod into the wall you could make a bed hanging with fabric...

Happy nesting this week!

How sweet of you to pass on your award to me! Thank you! You've put me in some very good company. I'm blushing.

Now onto your bedroom...a while ago I wrote a post about a model home that I toured that used decorative trim on the walls to create lots of interest. One of the photos shows how they did it above a bed.

Here's the post.

You could do something like that and never have to worry about something falling on your head in an earthquake.
