Something New in the Tea Rose Bedroom...Part II

*
*
Hello my friends...I hope you're having a fabulous day!
*
Today, as promised...I am posting a little more of my Tea Rose bedroom. Many of you have seen this room before, however there have been just a couple of small changes that you haven't seen. The Tea Rose bedroom doesn't see many changes because I really do love it just the way it is. You know how it goes...when something works...don't mess with it! Hehe!
*
This room is my step-daughter's bedroom when she is with us and it also serves as our guest room. It's shabby chic...garden chic...and chippy cottage all wrapped into one!
*
Please allow me to show you around the Tea Rose bedroom...
*
A Tea Rose Bedroom

*
*
*
*
One of the newest changes to the Tea Rose bedroom was an addition to the bed linens. A new quilt that I found at JC Penneys...for a look you can click HERE.
*
I found this comforter set at JC Penneys several years ago...it was love at first sight! Penneys called it..."Tea Rose"...thus the name for this sweet bedroom!
*
*
Beside the bed you will find a small writing desk and a comfy old rocking chair. I wrote a little more about these pieces in yesterday's post...if you are interested.
*
A Desk Top Vignette...
*
I know that many of you have already seen this little vignette that resides atop the writing desk...but I can hardly show the Tea Rose bedroom without it!
*
This sweet little teacup lamp was a gift from my dear, sweet friend Gloria from Happy To Be blog. She made it just for the Tea Rose bedroom! It's perfect...don't you think? A couple of little white bunnies keep the teacup lamp company! The bunny jewelry box was a gift from my honey! I just adore the delicate pink roses that embellish the bunnies!!!
*
A New Vignette in the Tea Rose Bedroom...
*
On the opposite side of the room from the writing desk is an old piano.
*
Recently I had very special guests come and stay in the Tea Rose bedroom...Cindy and her husband Dan from Applestone Cottage. Since guests were coming, I decided to freshen up this little vignette on top of the piano by adding a few new items.
*
*
This really is a "girly" room so I hope that Dan didn't mind staying here too much! Hehe!
*
A couple of my porcelain dolls are showcased! The doll in the burgandy dress (on the far end) was a very special Christmas gift from my late father-in-law! I will always cherish her!!! The other doll in the beautiful off-white lace dress was a gift from my step-children! Isn't she lovely?
*
*
This exqusitie glass carousel was my very first Christmas gift from my honey...and it plays music! I just adore it...and I also adore my honey!
*
Do you see the pretty teacup pin cushion? It was a gift from my sweet friend Cindy from Applestone Cottage blog. I tell you what...I have been blessed with so many sweet friends and family...and they all spoil me rotten with such lovely gifts! Hehe!
*
*
Front and center of this piano top vignette is a cherub planter. I used my pedestal cake plate to elevate it...so that it would have more of a presence! The cherub planter is filled with a bouquet of miniature tea roses.
*
I just love my pedestal cake plate...found it at TJ Maxx for a real bargain of $9.99. I wove a light green ribbon through the cut-outs in the plate...sooo very pretty!
*
*
Ohhh myyy...just look at those delicate roses that sit at the feet of the cherub!
*
I have to tell you...these sweet little roses just may be my best find this year! Aren't they gorgeous?
*
They aren't real...and they aren't silk...
*
Would you like to take a guess at what they are made of? Hehe!
*
I found these gorgeous roses at the Dollar Tree...a box of nine for just $1! They are soap flake roses! Yep...can you believe that? They can be floated in a bath...soap! They have a wonderful scent to them as well! I think they look sooo pretty!!! I love the soft pastel colors...pink, lavender, and peach! They also had packages of sagey green and yellow roses...and packages of all white roses!
*
*
*
*
*
Ahhh...another sweet little cherub! She is just to the left of the pedestal cake plate and cherub planter.
*
*
A couple of "artsy" photos!
*
*
Well my friends...I hope you enjoyed the new vignette in the Tea Rose bedroom. It's such a pleasure to have you stop by for a visit today!!!
*
*

*

Chari-Girl, you've got "artsy" down to a science!! :) This bedroom is what first drew me to your blog. I can't imagine its needing anything at all, but I love what you have done. I am envious that you got to have Cindy as a guest! I know that they felt like royalty in that room (even Dan :) The pin cushion is perfect in there. I love your carousel. I love it all!

BonjourRomance said...

Bonjour Chari,
Your Tea Rose Bedroom is lovely. All the rose touches are so inviting. Your honey's carousel fits in perfectly.
Hope your week is off to a great start!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh Chari,
Marti is right! Everything you put together always looks like a dream! You are so talented and Dan even commented on your amazing artistic talent, and the knack you have for putting it all together!
And he loved staying in that girly room! Remember what good sports are hubbies are!! hehe.
Dan read your note and he said, "that Chari is so sweet and has such a good sense of humor"!
Well I'm off to bed. You know me, I'll probably be awake by 5:00 a.m.
Big Hugs,
Cindy

Marilyn said...

I really like your soapy roses! I'm thinking I need a new brain or a few of your cells could just come live in mine to get me going on all the creative ideas you have. Can you spare a few?!! ♥♫

laurie @ bargain hunting said...

Chari, I love seeing the Tea Rose bedroom. How brilliant of you to use those pretty soaps for decor. (I would never have guessed they were soaps!). I already told Cindy that I was jealous that she got to stay in the famous Tea Rose guestroom. laurie

Theresa said...

Oh Chari, I am about to need oxygen because you took my breath away with all of this beauty! I SO love this room and hope someday I can see it with my own eyes:)

Have a blessed day, HUGS!

Polly @ Make Mine Beautiful said...

I just love your whole house, and this room is no exception. Every little detail is simply fabulous. I love that you've used so much color in the room. Wish I could see it in person - that bed looks pretty comfy!

Nellie's Cozy place said...

Hi Chari,

Jamiel said...

Sue said...

This room belongs in Romantic Homes Magazine, Chari! It is adorably pretty. Cindy and hubs were most cozy in it, I'm sure. I have got to start visiting more- things are so hectic this summer, I don't get to visit all my peeps! I can't spend ALL my time on the PC, can I? LOL
hugs, Sue

This room is classic and lovely. I came across your post this afternoon while browsing interior design blogs and the topic of window treatment selection was very interesting to me. It is true that you must dress your windows appropriately to bring out their true beauty.

Hey there excellent blog! Does running a blog like this take a great deal of work?
I have virtually no knowledge of programming however I had
been hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, if you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog
owners please share. I know this is off topic
however I just wanted to ask. Many thanks!
