~Show & Tell~

Hi Everyone!
This is my first time to do Show & Tell so I'm going to give it a shot:) BTW Kelli at http://kellishouse.blogspot.com/ hosts this every Friday so if you want to join in on the fun visit her blog she always has some interesting posts, recipes and projects for you to try! Kelli's idea for this week was the master bedroom, mine is still not decorated to my liking so I'm going to share my guestroom. The patriotic quilt my daughter gave me for my birthday one year and I've always loved it and imagine my surprise when I opened my latest issue of Country Sampler and saw one like it used on a owners bed, of course she had the matching pillowshams which I wish I had but I instead bought these pillowcases on ebay, loved the extra long length of them. The nightstand I found at a yard sale, painted white, for $15.00 and then I painted it black:) On the pegrack, to the right is an old, blue, baby Amish dress and the sign I made that says Herbs & Thyme ,the patriotic angel doll I found for $3.00. The lamp is like one I just fell in love with at one time in a prim catalog but to expensive for me so.....I found the lamp part at Walmart already black and the lampshade I already had, you can't tell by the light but it is a barnred check. Oh, and the repro 1940's clock radio that I just love! Well, I've had fun doing this and I hope all of you enjoyed it, hopefully I'll be able to post the master bedroom soon. Have a great weekend!!!


  1. Welcome to show and tell. You did a great job posting and your room would be wonderful for any guest.
    Stop by for a visit sometime.

  2. Your guestroom is great! I love Americana themes! Great first Show and Tell post!

  3. Does the radio work? Or just for show? I love the vintage look. Great job on the decor...and fantastic 1st show n tell.

    There is an open invitation to stop by and view my show n tell project this week. Hope to see you there if you haven't dropped by already.

  4. What a lovely little guest room. I love what you have done. I really like it all but I am always attracted to trash to treasure finds. I love the nightstand.
    Thanks for sharing it.

  5. I have the same quilt in my quest bedroom with matching shams. I also seen it in the country sampler this month. :) I love all your little accents in your room. I'm sure any guest feels right at home there. Have a great weekend!

  6. Thank you for sharing! I love your guestroom! Have a great weekend!

    anyone would enjoy staying there.
    Hope you stop by my blog and
    say HI!

  8. I really enjoy the glimpes into your home you share, I have saved some pictures to use for my "wish lists" and hope you don't mind...but your home is really beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Have a great weekend.

  9. I love your guest room!! I have a throw quilt like your quilt in my guest room and I love it!!! Hope you are having a great weekend!~Wendy

  10. Looks like a very cozy and homey guest room that anyone would enjoy staying in!

  11. I think it looks great - even without the matching shams. I figure prim woman in the old days wouldn't have had everything matchy matchy anyway.

    Thanks for sharing!

    hugs, Linda

  12. It is a very lovely guest room. Its looks very comfortable and inviting. I am surprised if your guests will ever want to leave!:)
    I also LOVE the magazine, Country Sampler. I pour over its pages every month. I want to advertise in it, but just haven't done it yet....

  13. I love that bedroom! I loved it when you posted it on CS! I love the way you have the bed angled in the corner and I just love everything about it! The pillow shams not matching makes it even better for me!

    I just love Americana!

  14. Your guestromms is awesome. I love the quilt.
