New Accessories For The Bdrm.

Since I was totally spoiled and got a fabulous Visa gift certificate for Mother's Day, I just had to go shopping for some things for the bedroom.  I am having a ball totally changing everything.  I am going to use aqua as my accent color, so new accessories is what I'm hunting for.  First up was a trip to Home Goods.  This is my fabulous loot.

Love this pretty green bottle and the rafia wrapped around the neck.  I can see this in so many different vignettes.

Some really pretty soft aqua candles for the bedroom.

Love this pretty aqua bird finial too.

Perfect for the bedroom too, and the antiqued crackle finish is so pretty and such a soft pretty aqua.

How could I possibly pass up this handsome fellow.  He is perfect to add to my dog collection.

I loved the design on the beautiful mercury canister.  The background was hard to photograph to show the color,but it is a beautiful shade of the soft aqua that I am using.

Then it was a stop at Ross for these wonderful pillows, such a beautifully soft aqua and the quilting is lovely.

 They also had these large candles in the perfect aqua color too.

Since I still have a few dollars left, I headed to Hobby Lobby, and found these fabulous lamps.  I think they are just perfect and a great size for the bedroom. 

Well, I spent my whole present, now I still need to find a great night stand and a dresser. 
I am off to hit Hotel Liquidators and a fabulous used Furniture store near the same area.  Hopefully I will find something that will work. 


  1. All fabulous adore the pillows

  2. Love all your finds! The bedroom is looking gorgeous!

  3. Oh my gosh do you know how to shop. These pieces are so pretty. Love the aqua.
    I am thinking I need more of it in my house.
    Honey I hope you have fun shopping at those neat places. Would love to be there with you.
    Have a great weekend

  7. Great haul, everything is so beautiful. I especially love that bird and those lamps! Glad you enjoyed that magic card, there was a lot of spending power there, esp. in the hands of someone who knows how to shop wisely. Good luck finding the perfect nightstand and dresser to display these goodies on.

  8. Lovely! What fun to be able to change your bathroom colors! Glad you enjoyed your shopping spree!

  9. Marty, after I read this post, I went back and read your previous post about your new bedroom. Everything looks great (love that wall color) and I was thinkng that with your new aqua accessories and fancy table lamps beside that headboard, this will look very French Country. Then I noticed on one of the reference blogs above the comments, you had put a post on about a French Country magazine you were looking through and admiring. You posted this almost a year ago to the date, May 25, 2011. A year later, I think you've pretty much accomplished bringing French Country to your bedroom.

  10. love your finds Marty- boy do you know how to shop...
