Where I live....Our Guest Bedroom

Today, Kelly is asking us all to share pictures of our guest bedroom. Our guest bedroom is the first room in the house that I began decorating as soon as we moved in. I knew we would be having lots of visitors and I wanted it to be nice and cozy and have a little bit of the "country girl" side of me in it.

So come on in and take a look...

This is a little dark..but it is looking into the room from the hallway.

My camera was acting this the pictures are a bit wacky...but here is the view of the bedroom as soon as you walk in....I wish I could have gotten an arial view. ha! The bedding I bought on clearance at JCPenny's when they were closing one of their stores near our home!

This room is great as it has really high ceilings! Hubby installed the ceiling fan which has helped cool this room down.

I have these candle holders on both sides of the window...

This cabinet is my favorite! It is hanging on the wall opposite of the bed and above my cedar chest.
This lamp I found online 1/2 off at JCpenny too! I want to find a higher table for it...but for now it sits on a low table by the bed.

Instead of a headboard...I decided to just hang a sign above the bed

This is the view looking towards the entrance from the corner that is right next to the bed.
This is my Granny K's cedar chest that she had in her home.....she stuff it full of quilting items...I have stuffed it full of extra blankets. It is my one keepsake item from her home that I love.
The quilted piece on top I bought last summer while my Mom and I were in Branson waiting on my hubby and Dad to finish golfing. I could spend DAYS down there looking at all their crafts!

This rocking chair was a bargain I found last fall at my hometown fair. I just happened to be walking up the street before the parade and this man had some items sitting out for sale. I paid $30.00 for it! On top of it is the quilt my Grandma B made me....everytime I miss her I wrap myself up in this blanket and it helps me to feel like I am getting a hug from her. I can sometimes even smell her scent on it.

The light switches and plug in outlets all have this type of cover on them.

Straight shot photo of the window....directly behind me while I was taking the picture is two double doors that open to a huge closet...I forgot to take a pic of that!
One last shot....thanks for stopping by!!!

I am working a few hours this morning and taking the rest of the day off to set up for our neighborhood garage sale tomorrow! Have a wonderful Friday!
