mountain weekend continued...

we hauled up a car load FULL of stuff last weekend including lots of 'artwork' for our bedroom...

i painted the deer head silhouette, and the 'snowshoes' above my nitestand are really a christmas decoration i found on clearance at kohls!

this is my version of a deer head mounted on the wall (taxidermy ain't my thing)

 see the little sled above the closet door? that too was a christmas decoration i got on clearance...on the dresser is a tree (you know how i love a tiny tree!) but you cannot see it very well...it will be moved to a desk i'm hauling up next trip...and it's another after clearance item...

for whatever crazy reason, the former owner of the house put a glass door on our bedroom (really, has he never heard of privacy?)...this door connects directly to the main living room...so i ordered a curtain panel for it and the husband hung it up asap!

this picture i mainly took for reference...the desk is going to go under that window...and i need to find something to hang above the husband's nitestand to compliment the snowshoes above mine...hmmm...

 we are also going to do major work in our 'walk-in' (term used loosely) closet...the currrent setup is just NOT working...this trip the husband took down the main rod that ran the length of the closet (cause if you hang clothes on it, you cannot get into the closet!)...we will only have the 2 stacked rods in the back...we are going to hang a long piece of wood instead and have hooks on it for hanging up my purse, hats, etc...and it's going to be WAY better than it is now...

the closet and bedroom are going to be painted a khaki/tan/beige color this summer...

that was it for this trip...we go back in 2 weeks...i wonder how much stuff i can cram in the car this time?  it will soon be time to swap out all the 'wintry' linens and faux fur pillows for spring/summer weight things!  i see some sewing in my future...

have a GREAT weekend!

I really like the windows that crank out and the shades on them. Love the quilt on your bed...it all looks so comfy and dreamy.

I love your mountain home, everything looks great (of course).

sandy, i like the crank windows too! i open them all the time (even when it's cold outside) to air out the room. we are fortunate to have lots of windows in our bedroom and a window in our bathroom. the shades were the only option we had due to the crank handles...we were going to put in regular plantation blinds but they wouldn't work, the handles got in the way. we went to lowes and came up with the shades...they just push up from the bottom!
