Roses, roses, roses!

I have been freshening up our bedroom..    I added new bedding, changed the vignette on the fireplace, added some flowers to the vintage wedding gown tree, and a few other touches!

I got all the flowers that are on the tree at a yard sales this past week end....

for $3!
There were four long garlands...

H painted the frame on this large picture...
and it hangs on the small wall by our bedroom door.  You can see the hallway cabinet on the right...

We stapled fabric over the oil painting and hung it that a word?    
I didn't do anything different on the chesser...
The fabric that I used on the big picture matches the fabric on the picture over the fireplace.  I did a separate post on the new bedding here.....

Thanks for stopping by...see you later!♥-fridays-link-party-2/


  1. Great find on the Rose Swags, they really add to the Wedding Dress Tree!

  2. You have a gorgeous home!

  3. Wow!!!The wedding tree with the roses is gorgeous ,Penny. Your romantic corners are always a great joy for my eyes. I love the fabric of the frames.

  4. Your home is so pretty Penny... love all the roses you use everywhere... I could get totally lost in your home I think and not want to come out... xoxo Julie Marie

  5. So pretty Penny. It's incredulous to get all those garlands so reasonable. I just priced a little rose bower the other day at my favourite vintage decor shop,$29.95 and it only had 5 roses on it. x

  6. Penny,
    What a fantastic buy on that garland and it is so beautiful but on your wedding dress tree , it is shear perfection, girl!! STUNNING!!
    Love what you did with the pictures and frames!! Great idea!!
    Looking good as always, my friend!!

  9. Oh how clever of you. Where do I start. Covering the painting with fabric and then painting the frame is such a great idea. I think your hallway cabinet deserves a standing ovation. I am clapping.
