Elegant Bedding

I’m sure you have heard of BELLA NOTTE LINENS

one of the finest, American made linen distributors in the world.

Well, I had the opportunity to partner with them recently and I am in LOVE!


The packaging is stunning, as well as how the linens feel in your hands…heavy, soft, with such a beautiful flow.


I received the Marguerite Deluxe shams in Winter White and the Linen Whisper Bedskirt.

The bed skirt is quite amazing. It is very simple to add to your bed, without removing the mattress. It comes with pins to attach it to the box springs. I love this! It makes for easy removal as well, for cleaning. You can adjust the length of the skirt to your liking.


I love how the shams and bed skirt contrast our rustic headboard. The colors and details of the shams are beautiful.






And the shams tie on the sides…with lovely, long ties.


If you are perhaps looking to purchase bedding…I definitely recommend BELLA NOTTE LINENS. You’ll find the prices to be more of an investment…but the luxurious quality and longevity of the linens will be worth the money. And you can always purchase one item at a time, and mix the BELLA NOTTE with other bedding. Here, I have a white quilt from TJ Maxx paired with the shams and bedskirt. And I have placed a French vintage sheet from ELSIE GREEN across the end of the bed.


The French crate is from a flea market, and the galvanized bucket is available HERE in my shop.

Oh…and we got a new Julianna pig a few weeks ago! Her name is Basil Bell.

I’ll tell you more about her soon!

Antique Armoire in Country Chic Simplicity

Hey there! It’s finally Friday…has it been a long week for you? It has been a long week here as well…the countdown to the last day of school is on!

I am so excited to share this painting project with you.


I received a package of paints from Country Chic Paint. I chose the color Simplicity, which is a nice crisp white. I’ve always wanted to paint our armoire, and I finally got brave enough. See, this is a really special piece to me. My mom passed away in 2009, and left the armoire to me. I am certain she would have told me to paint it Smile 


I did a minimal amount of sanding before I began painting, just to remove some of the shiny finish. I used a paintbrush provided by Country Chic Paint, and the paint went on smoothly. I love the coverage of the paint.


Here is a before photo:

It is a beautiful piece of furniture, with nice curves and oval mirror. But honestly, it just stuck out like a sore thumb with all of our white.


After two coats of Simplicity, I used a putty knife to distress all of the edges. Some spots I did a heavy distressing.


And lastly, I used the White Wax to cover the top coat. The wax is slightly white-tinted and worked perfectly for a subtle, smooth finish.

Country Chic Paint has step-by-step tutorial videos to watch as a resource before beginning a painting project.


It certainly looks brighter and lighter in our bedroom now! I am so glad I had the opportunity to try Country Chic Paint! If you are considering a painting project to change up your look, I’d suggest trying Country Chic!


Thanks for visiting me here today!

Check back in on Monday…where there will be a FUN GIVEAWAY!

And…enjoy your MOTHER’S DAY!!

Spring Bedroom Makeover

Hi everyone! Are you glad it’s Friday?

I’m so glad you’re visiting here today…I have a “mini-makeover” to share with you!

But first, the winner of our SCRIPTED SIMPLICITY $75 GIVEAWAY is

NIKI from Beauty.in.everyday.living! Congratulations! Thank you to everyone who entered!

Now, let me show you around our master bedroom…


The gorgeous pillow & duvet is from Pom Pom at Home. It’s a beautiful silver grey color. The linen is soft to the touch.


The artwork is a new addition, from Fine Art by Deann...called Run for the Roses. It’s from her latest collection, the floral series. The colors are a stunning. She is amazingly talented. You can find Deann on INSTAGRAM HERE.


If you’re new here, or just popping in for a visit…our headboard is an original. My husband built it from vintage barnwood that we got from deconstructing an old shack on his Aunt’s farm. We used horizontal 2x4s to attach the tongue and groove boards. We wanted to leave the boards at varying heights to add interest.


The crate on the bed came from Canton Trade Days flea market. I turn it upside down, and it makes the perfect bed tray. The vintage bench at the end of the bed was purchased from a little antique shop…and  one of my sweet friends bought it from me, however, it sits here until she picks it up.


The bedding is elegant and flowing…and I love the way it looks against the rustic headboard. The perfect mix of rustic elegance. Pom Pom at Home has an amazing selection of duvets... this one is the Mathilde in Silver. It plays well with our wall color, which is Silver Drop by BEHR.


The gorgeous French canning jars are from ELSIE GREEN House & Home online shop. Our white roses are blooming, and smell divine!


Oh the ruffles! And the velvet ribbon trim adds such a beautiful texture. I did iron the whole duvet before putting it on the bed. But even the wrinkles look good.


The light fixture came from Home Depot a few years ago. And our curtains are from IKEA. I actually cut a throw in half and hung each piece by ribbons from vintage boards. And the little dresser came an antique shop with it’s chippy paint.



Next time, I will show you a painting project I’ve been working on…here is a sneak peek.

Enjoy your weekend!
