Spring has come to our Bedroom

Spring has come to our bedroom!  I decorated our bedroom around a beautiful quilt that belonged to my mother.  The quilt has shades of lavender, white, and green in it.

I used vintage pillow cases...peacocks and gingham checks!

The embroidery work on these pillow cases is just gorgeous!

The quilt is very  "puffy"....

It has hearts down the sides.

I made a spring arrangement in a vintage pitcher and bowl set....
I used silk flowers in pink and shades of lavender...

I added some cute spring bunnies to the vignette...

On the other side of the bed, I made a floral design with spring branches, lilacs,  and lavender.

I have a mother bunny and her babies on the side table.

I added some vintage doilies to the pillow cases.

I love our new bedroom!    Happy Spring!

  9. Many compliments for your blog, it's wonderfull!
    I like how you make your bedroom so "springy"

  10. Penny,
    Just beautiful!! You have so many lovely linen pieces!!

    And purple/lavender is one of my favorite colors. The walls of my bedroom when I lived at home with my parents were a deep shade of lavender.


  11. Me again!! Those chandies on each side of the bed are drop dead gorgeous!!


  12. Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Loved every single detail. SOOOOOO pretty. Fabulous job. Susan

  13. Penny, you have a beautiful home!! so lacy and lovely and your blog is lovely, too. Thanks for linking at What to do weekends! And I'm linking to your party also. How much fun is this??? Your friend, Linda

  14. I can only imagine what sweet dreams this room would inspire! Loving the lavender! Hope you can stop by the enchanted oven to say hi.

  15. Love, love, love that quilt! The purple is divine (says the lady who lives in a lavender house!) and the heart motifs are gorgeous. As the mother of a heart transplant recipient, I have a real "soft spot" for anything with a heart on it !!!!!

    Happy Pink Saturday,

  16. Thanks for another breathtaking view of this wonderful quilt treasure.

  17. such a pretty bedroom, like a fantasy! i don't think i've been by here before but this is a lovely place & i will link up a creation too. happy pink saturday! xo

  18. So lovely to have your mother's quilt. It must be a real treasure for you. Your bedroom is very pretty and I love the little bunnies you have added. We are weeks away from Spring but my bunnies are coming out because I can't wait anymore. Deb (Ontario)

  19. I love the colors. Normally I like a more visually quiet bedroom but yours is eye candy for the soul...

  20. Hum... I never thought of changing out the bedding for the season. But it is a great idea. More ways to use more quilting as I do more quilting. I like the way yours turned out, including all the little touches.

  21. Your room is lovely. I love the colors in the quilt and they do say spring. We could use a little spring decor to brighten up our home especially with the gray days we are having.

  22. Such a beautiful relaxing bedroom! Thank you so much for sharing at Project Inspire{d}!

    Have a wonderful week, Penny.

    Hugs, Mary Beth
