Dress Up Black & White With Gold & Silver For Fall

I think we all love black and white and there are some stunning rooms out there to inspire us.  I love how my bedroom looks with black and white trimmed drapes and bedding.  It creates the perfect blank canvas to do just about anything.

  I like a little elegance in the bedroom sometimes, so I thought I would show you how to add a little gold and silver to the mix and create a cozy, snuggly fall bedroom.

 Adding these two silver pillows and one fabulous gold one was all I needed to make the bed special.  Simple and elegant.  (If you haven't discovered the fabulous pillow covers at Hobby Lobby, then you need to run.  These silver ones were only $8 each with coupon.)



Aren't the jewels on this pillow stunning.


           I love the detail and that gorgeous ombre velvet is amazing. This was a gift from my daughter, she always finds the most amazing pillows.


 Add in a fur throw for pure luxury.  This one is a faux mink, it is so gorgeous you would definitely think it was real.


  The sun shining in the window is so magical.   How can you not smile when you see all the sparkle and shine on the dresser.


                             You know I love me some gold, sparkle and shine.


Now with the nights getting a little cooler, this just looks like the perfect place to snuggle in for a good nights sleep.


                How do you dress up your black and white?

You can still link up to Inspire Me Tuesday.  We love seeing all of your projects.

344th Inspire MeTuesday

Welcome to the 344th Inspire Me Tuesday.  Boy there was so much to see and so many fabulous tutorials in last weeks links.  I love it when you guys so generously share all the "how-to's" of your fabulous projects and makeovers.  Plenty of pretty fall design to see too.  Here is a small sample, check them all out.

Look at this fabulous place to sit and enjoy some gorgeous fall weather.  Rattlebridge Farm shared a spot that I could just enjoy all day.  I adore her pillows and throw and how wonderful is that scarecrow.


I love her pretty kitchen and the gorgeous counter tablescape that Everyday Living created.  What a fabulous way to start the day.




Here is a step by step tutorial on how to create an impressive floral arrangement.  Celebrate & Decorate does a beginners step by step with tons of pictures.  Free magnolia leaves and some feathers and this stunning arrangement is done.

If you've been coveting one of those Tobacco baskets but don't like the price, Twelve On Main teaches you how to make your own with this step by step tutorial.  I love this idea.


This is one of those times when you need two pictures.  Vintage Refined knocked it way out of the ballpark with this bathroom makeover.
BEFORE


AFTER - be sure to go see everything, so much inspiration to copy for your own bath.

A Real Life Miracle - My Granddaughter's Story

I want to introduce you to an amazing woman and introduce you to the miracle of her life.  If you are new here, I would like to have you meet my granddaughter-in-love - Megan.  She is the gorgeous woman in the middle - in the wheelchair.  She has started a blog to tell the world the story of her life.

Tiny Handed Life


5 years ago she married my grandson -
 Jake, one of the most amazing men in the whole world.  In a series of posts she shares the story of her life with SMA11 ( Spinal Muscular Atrophy type ll ) , her family, marriage and children.




While there are challenges to carry a baby, Megan had her prayers answered.

Three years ago I shared the story of Bronx and his miracle birth.   His lungs were so weak when he was born that he had to be in the NICU for several weeks.  Such a tough little fighter.


Bronx is now the most adoreable young man you will ever meet.  He is personality overload and another Miracle from God.


A year ago he became a big brother to Shai.  They both prove that the Lord has no limit to his Miracles.


The following stories are posts Megan has shared on her blog.  I hope you will read her story and follow her blog.  She is an amazing woman that will touch your heart with her ability to look at life with her cup full to the brim.

Some History

I Deserve Babies Too

Livin' the life in my shoes
