~ Waking Up in Sun Shine ~

This is our Master Bedroom, a very light and airy room that just fills itself with sun shine every morning. How could anyone wake up in a bad mood. We have a king size bed in the room that is so warm and cozy with the down comforter. The window slider goes out to the back yard and pool. Wonderful for those late night swims.
Gary made the head board for me last Christmas. This head board gave us more room since the head board is mounted onto the wall.
There is crown molding all around the room and molding around all windows. I tried to keep this room very simple without to much clutter, since I tend to keep adding nick nacks all around the house (all the time).
The picture above the bed is a Charles Peterson. Look close and you will see ghost like images. I thought this was a fun picture looking into the mirror and seeing the bed on the opposite side of the room. One of my favorite chairs to rest in and read a magazine.
This painting is above my dresser and was painted by Dwight Hickman or better known as (Dobby Gillis)
I love this pillow it reminds me of a soft cotton nightgown.
I made this white afghan years ago, I just can't say enough good things about Red Heart Yarn it really has passed the test of time.

A closer look at the beautiful lace of the curtains. And of course there just has to be a little red in every room.

Elizabeth you have a dreamy room! It's simply charming. I can't think of a more "comfi" place to relax, then go jump in the pool. Very tasty! Thanks so much for you comment on my blog. I miss my twins terribly so my thoughts are with them this year. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas. I love visiting your blog. I haven't much time anymore, but when things settle down I will be around much more!
