Secluded Garden Office/Bedroom Update

Hi!  Come on in.  I have something to share with you.
This is the Louis day bed (from Ballards) that I have been longing for ever since we did this room last year.  It just places the finishing touch to this Secluded Garden Room.  Now, I never have to come out of my secluded room! Ahh!  Peace and quiet . :) :)  I can recline, nap or watch my favorite DVD's (Phantom of the Opera, Runaway Bride, Mama Mia, Gone With the Wind,) to name a few, especially when Mr. N is watching Westerns and Boxing :)
  I covered the mattress with a twin sheet set from Better Homes & Garden at Wal-mart.  The sheet set was very nice and silky and only $18.00! Matched the curtains beautifully!  I only used the fitted sheet for now.  When we have guests, I will add the flat sheet and comforter.


 Pillows and throw from Ross.  I hope to get a lot more pillows! 

Other side of room.  

Moved my "desk" over to another corner.  TV is on above left wall.  Now, all I need is a Louis chair...it's fun to have something to look for isn't it?  I need a good deal though, have to stay within my budget.

Initial burlap pillow - Ross

Another view.

Ah Louis Louis, Oh, Oh, Away I Go!  :)  :)   French script rug - Ballards.   I think I luv a little French Decor -We We?

Well, I have to feed Mr. N - better get to cooking!   Mac, Ham and Cheese tonight.  Hope you are  having a great week.

Joining Marty for "Inspire Me Tuesday" at http://www.astrollthrulife.net/ - come on over!

Blessings,

Guess What's In The Roses?

Hope you all have a wonderful day.  Let me know if you need a hint?  :)

Pumpkin Spice Frappe Recipe

Hi everyone!  Glad you stopped by.....

Wow!  Our weather here in East Texas is great!  Started out this a.m. in 70's and now in 80's.  This is crazy weather for August down here!  But, not complaining, we are all giving thanks for it.  I can almost feel Fall in the air - Ahhhh!

 Speaking of Fall, wanted to share this Pumpkin Spice Frappe recipe with you.  I haven't tried it yet, but definitely will.  Looks yummy!  These would be great for sitting around a fire outside or in front of a cozy fireplace.
