Minialmist Guest Room

We all know I love and embrace color but this year I  decided to make my guest room a little more relaxing and welcoming.

First I worked on the guest bath that is attached to the guest room.

I have really enjoyed the white and it looks so fresh and clean.

I changed all the bedding to white and finally found some white covering for the bedside table as well. On the table I have a few books that I think guests will enjoy....Being Dead is No Excuse and The Majorettes are Back in Town.  During the Easter season I have a Quaker Easter Egg displayed and proclaims, He is Risen.

I finally painted the chest that was in this room. It had been a barn yard red and I had a rather splashy canvas above it.   Time for a change.

I found this cute farm house tray at Dollar General for just $5. I added a picture of Marvin and Mina, along with one of my favorite plates. The ceramic Cocker Spaniels are just too cute. I collect ceramic dogs of all sorts and you will find them all over my home.  Who would not like to indulge in a Miss Marple story before heading off to dreamland? My Country is one of the old school books that I have collected over the years.

I also have a luggage table in the room.

And on the luggage table is a notebook for our next guest, Margaret. Landon and I were doing some shopping when we saw a blue notebook with an owl on it. I picked it up for Kendall who LOVES owls. Landon picked this one up and reminded me that Margaret might enjoy this notebook. Landon is always looking out for his ladies.:)

Now that I have completed my guest room, I am thinking of my next project. We have quite a few things on the list.

How pretty and easy to keep nice too. I love the little dogs and those old books. I noticed a Miss Marple movie is on Saturday night on TCM! We love those books and movies! Hugs!

It all looks lovely. Sometimes we are just ready for a change. I didn't get a chance to comment yesterday on those beautiful girls. Kendall is definitely growing up. Time to step up the prayers. I wouldn't want to be the parent these days.
