About this time last year I did a post about the Christmas Tour of Homes I attended in Madison. You can read about it here.There was a bedroom in one of the homes that I fell in Love with. Since then I have tried to make mine as much like it as I possibly can. Here is two pictures of my inspiration.
I just love this look! I may not get it to the exact look, but I'm trying.
It may take awhile! Here is how far I've gotten. Oh! And the reason for this post. Yesterday I spent the day with my sister. She called to tell me that I owed her a visit since I was at her house with another sister while she was on a trip up the eastern coast last month. It is over a two hour drive to her home on Lake Sinclair, but it is always worth the trip. Her husband owns a Gold and Silver and Antique Store. Even though it's been open several years, I had never been to it. After lunch we drove over and while there I eyed an antique phone that I've been looking for since last November. My sister took it off the self and said "Merry Christmas, it's yours".
Love her, she is so generous, but so is her husband, he told me it belonged to an elderly lady that had to move in with her daughter her husband died. It was hers as a little girl.
Here it is!
I will cherish it always!
One more item to check off my list to furnish my master bedroom to look like the Madison room.
There are two plates on the wall, I do have another to make it three and still have the one on the table, do you think it needs it?
HAVE A BLESSED DAY!
