A Cozy Bedroom

We have been switching things up here at the bungalow. But before we get into that, I thought it would be nice to take a tour of how Mandy's bedroom looked before!
She has a completely different style then mine. A very cozy and warm bedroom.

 Mandy loves her animals, so horses and dogs are plentiful! She had an understate Western/cowboy theme. Warm reds, blues and browns with a pop of rustic wood!

Mandy has been collecting vintage horse pictures for years! I love the collected English gallery wall look. Gallery walls are always a work in progress!

 Isn't the vintage puppy plant adorable? He always makes me smile!

 It is a little hard to see in this picture, but the lower half of the windows have grain sack curtains for privacy during the day. Our houses are so close to each other in this neighborhood that anyone walking up the neighbor's driveway has a bird's eye view into the bedroom!

Yes, that is our pup Kerri over the dresser. It is an art print I made from a picture (aren't computers amazing!)

So there is Mandy's cozy comfortable room BEFORE we switched things up! Stay tuned for the switch!

If you want to see how Mandy's room has changed, here it is in 2014 and in 2013.

Valentine's Flowers and Snow

Today the sun is shinning out of a blue sky, the air is soft and balmy and the snow is dripping! Spring are you around the corner??

Mandy and I took these pictures on Monday when we were out for the afternoon walk. Snow piles everywhere! It felt like all we did last weekend was shovel snow. The total count was over a foot. It has been a few years since we have had this much snow piled up at once.

Kerri and her favorite winter activity, Digging! She loves to dig and dig and then shove her whole face in the hole. We call it snow snorgeling. (Yes, even Kerri has an extensive winter wardrobe!)

But let's not talk about snow, let's talk about

 Mandy went to our favorite garden center today. We always plan a trip in February. Spring fever usually sets in by then and we are longing for the sight of something green and growing! She sent me a few photos. Aren't they lovely!!

I just want to gather them all up and bury my face in them!

Of course, Mandy brought home a few plants including a pink ruffled cyclamen!

Happy Valentine's Day!
Aren't these the cutest things ever!
