Sunshine on the Dresser

I still love the pillows and colors I have in the Master Bedroom, but I did want to change a few things on the dresser.  I love using family photos, and finding really unusual or ornate frames make them look even more special.

Adding just a touch of spring with the candles and the pretty yellow tulips.  I really like to mix up the frames, I think it adds so much interest.

A spot of sunshine on the dresser.

  1. Very pretty and nice! Are those tulips real?? Simple gorgeous!~~Angela

    1. I thought they looked real too, they are actually from the Dollar Store. Aren't they amazing. Thanks for the gracious comment. Hugs, Marty

  2. You added just the perfect touch with the lovely tulips. They do look amazing! Have a great evening!

  3. I love the mixed frames. More interesting!

  4. Un petit endroit printanier avec ce charmant bouquet de tulipes qui illumine votre commode.
    Gros bisous

  5. I am loving the tulips Marty! Beautiful as usual!!

  6. It looks beautiful! I can't believe those tulips are from the Dollar Tree! Life to the full! Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle

  7. Hi honey
    I loved my vist here tonight. Those tulips are gorgeous. Makes all the difference doesn't it.
    Hope your doing well.

  8. Those tulips are from the DOLLAR STORE???????? Amazig, they look so real! Love the mix of frames too. XO, Pinky

  9. Very pretty Marty! Love those tulips too and your mix of frames.

  10. Marty all your frames look very pretty on your dresser. I collect frames with the jewels in them or what I like to call blingy frames! The tulips are beautiful, I can not believe you got those at the Dollar Store. They look so real!

  11. Yikes! Did I forget to leave my comment. Of course I had to enlarge your wedding photo to see if I remembered you from high school. I have all of my annuals. What a lovely vignette you have created.

  12. I love to have our family photos out too-what a beautiful vignette you have created and what a delightful way to add new interest by changing the frames

  13. It's all so lovely looking. One of your tablescapes on the blog incorporates the bust of a young child, could you tell me where you found it? Thanks! Sally

    1. I left a message on your blog also. I found it at Goodwill. There are no markings on it so I am not sure where it came from.

  14. It's fun to change things out. You do it so well.

  15. I love to decorate with family pictures, too. Your variety in frames is really pretty here. (Of course I have to admit that my favorite part is the vase of yellow tulips. Love that. Happy!)

  16. Your bedside chest is beautiful and the vignette that you've created is really nice. You have found some very pretty ornate frames and the clock fits in perfectly.
    Hugs, Cindy

  17. Sometimes we all need a little sunshine.

  18. Marty,
    Love the PoP of Sunshine tulips on your dresser, dear friend!!!
    The photos in your vignette are adorable!!!

  19. I agree.... matchy-matchy just doesn't give the same feel. After all, whenever you read books about french decorating they always say the main theme is make a home feel like pieces have been collected over time. That each piece has a history. You sure have created that with the top of your dresser!

  20. Beautiful vignette! Like everyone else I am stunned that your tulips are not real since they are so pretty!!! Happy Wednesday!

  21. Your dresser looks lovely, Marty. The assortment of frames and photos really do lend a lot of interest and are so pretty. Your home never seems static or boring. It was great of you to share the new and inspiring look for spring. Thanks so much!

  22. That looks so pretty! I love the pop of yellow.


  23. I love all the shapes of your picture frames. Such a pretty vignette Marty. Thank you for sharing it at What We Accomplished Wednesdays. Have a great weekend!
