Don’t you feel so much better...

....on a Monday when you’ve had a productive & fun weekend?

Friday I had dinner with a friend here

We both went for the bacon cheeseburgers – yum!

Early hours of Saturday I received the news that one of my close friends had given birth to a little girl named Megan Louise, 8.2lb.

I couldn’t resist buying these things for her

I have best of both worlds now buying pink for Megan and blue for my nephew

After deciding my bedroom needing an update I took an (expensive!) visit to Laura Ashley and brought this, this, this, this, AND this

This how it all looks

Sorry for the flash

Now I've loaded these pictures it doesn't show the duvet cover very well. It has a pink top and bottom and the pillows are lined in pink

I’m thinking of getting another set of boxes to sit the other side of my TV – what do you think?

I feel it is resembling a bedroom once again and not just a storage facility for my future home

…. Just don’t look behind the wardrobes!

Yes, these boxes are piled high on either side of the room with "bottom draw" bits and pieces

My fave charity shop had a visit and I was instantly drawn to this wedding dress

I think I’m going to try selling it but if not I’ll use it as a display piece for my friends Bridal Shower I’m hosting next year

Sunday I finally visited a couple of boot sales.

Unfortunately I didn’t find much to bring home apart from this scrapbook

What did you get up to at the weekend?

I love all the pink. The cushions are gorgeous. Congratulations to your friend, I only have nephews so I need a little girl to to dress head to toe in pink like a meringue! I wonder if you can remember what is in all those boxes? When I had my things in storage when I was between houses it was like christmas when I unpacked. I fell off my bike at the weekend X

Laura Ashley is so feminine and pretty. I love your Audrey and Marilyn pics and that cute Betty Boop doll too.
Your room looks great....and I am with the other blogger....can we dig in your boxes LOL
What are boot sales? Is that like a garage sale?

Sherri said...

Victoria, you really found alot of things this past weekend! I love the wedding dress-it is beautiful! Your room is very nicely decorated!

Naughty you saying you didn't find much at your booty on my blog! What a lovely old album - it looks fascinating and I'd enjoy sitting browsing through at all the pages.

Your bedroom is gorgeous. I do like the boxes at the side of your telly, very pretty and very you.

I had to laugh at all those boxes hidden behind your wardrobe. I squash everything under the bed and every bed in my house has stuff packed under it. Put it this way , if any mad murderer broke in there is no way he could hide under my bed!

So glad to see I'm not the only one with boxes stacked to the ceiling...only mine are from a recent move that I haven't unpacked! Icky! I hate packing/unpacking nonsense!

A lovely room Victoria! You have great taste. I love the apron from Suzie! Lucky you! :)
That scrapbook would have been enough for me! It's wonderful.
