"Unmade" Bed in the Guest room?

I fluffed up my guest room today!  I wanted to try the "un" made bed look that seems to be popular  now!  I ruffled up the comforter, thru in a bunch of pillows, tossed in a few lace dresses, and stirred it all up!!!  How many of you remember the old pole lamps?  The milk glass one in the corner belonged to my grandma, I just love it!



I got this pillow at a yard sale last week-end, $2!!! 

I made this lighted swag and AMOUR sign.  I've got them hanging on a babybed spring.

We  bought this vintage baby bed at a big barn sale in Dryden ,Ny a couple of years ago.

Howard has collected  vintage clocks for a long time.  Here is some of his collection.   The big ones are really heavy!!

Some old clock parts.

Been there, done that... don't  remember! 










Some of the different fabrics on the bed! 

Lots of lace and an old quilt.

This is Carmen, one of my daughters cats!  Our daughter, 2 grandkids, 2 grandcats, and a grand dog are living with us until Oct. when their house is ready!
  I will be joining the following parties:

  30. Who knew I was stylish when I don't make the bed? Okay, I'm stretching the stylish bit cuz it doesn't look that nice!

    Great cornice board over the window/bed.

    Neat old baby bed - especially with the floral arrangement in it.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  31. The entire look is lovely. My favorite is the bedspring. I want one, but I have no space to put one so I guess it is a good thing I haven't found one.

    I think I might be tempted to spend time in the guest room reading and relaxing.

  34. 1st let me say how much I like your blog header, so pretty. My husband and I retired last year, and like you loving every minute of it. My passions are the same as yours. Your "unmade" bed is so pretty, didn't know it was in style, so glad, cause now I can keep mine unmade! I love the bed spring and on the hurt for one. So glad you shared your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – your creativity helped make the party a success! Following you on GFC!
