Bedroom Tweaking

It's the first of March and I have a confession.

Bleary eyed this morning as my foggy brain wrapped itself around the fact that it was the first day of March, I glanced around my room and my eyes settled on this. . .


Ahhh, Yep! Embarrassing enough I still have Christmas decorations in my bedroom.

Muttering to myself things like "unbelievable" and "ridiculous" I vowed somehow - someway I had to carve out a little time today to replace that wintery village.

Truth be told, in January I was loving it so much I wasn't ready to part with it.
Then February arrived and inspiration was playing hide and seek, so I let it slide a little longer.
No longer.  It needed to be dealt with - - today!

Something fast and quick was necessary.
I picked a few favorite items I thought might work together.
After arranging them until I liked the look this is the result.



Vintage clocks.


Empty chippy frames.


A grouping of candles.


Simple and pretty.

Not too shabby for a ten minute project.


I'm still amazed it took me so long!

  5. Love it Robin! Such a nice focal point in your bedroom! I also love your new faceplates for your bathroom. Makes me want to change out all of ours!

  6. oh yeah! I LOVE the empty frames! perfect!

    p.s. you're excused for the decorations still being up because 1) they were white and 2) it is STILL the dead of winter here!

    love what you came up with!

  7. I love what you did with the shelves, very cute! I bet you smile every time you walk in your room and those Christmas decorations are gone and that is in it's place. And only 10 minutes!

    Your shelf looks lovely, I love vintage clocks. You are very creative. Your little houses with the snow were beautiful, but this is very, very pretty.

  9. You are making me want to run out and buy some vintage alarm clocks. Looks very nice. I still have some pine boughs on my kitchen table, so maybe it's time for me to find a spring replacement.

  10. It's so easy to let the wintery Christmas decorations stay up when we're buried under snow, Robin! Tour new design looks wonderful!!

  12. Not shabby at all, Robin! Your vintage clock collection has me envious--they have such character. And the texture of the chippy frames, glass and candles are gorgeous in combination. After seeing your mantel and then a tutorial on building one at another blog, I'm looking at the bare space over my bed and seriously thinking about making one now. Did you make yours or buy it?

    P.S.--You're not the only one with her bottle brush trees and winter houses up well into February! I *just* took mine down on Sunday. I categorize these things as winter decorations, so they stay out for most of winter. Now that it's March, though, I am itching for spring decorations and flowers! :)

  17. I don't blame you one bit for leaving your glittery village up there. It was so beautiful! It looks great now too! That is pretty impressive that you put together such a stunning vignette so quickly!

  18. Looks great...love the frames! And I saw a little Christmas tree still in my bedroom on the dresser yesterday! I guess I'd just forgotten about it!

  25. That looks really great! I love all of your vintage clocks!! I have an old Big Ben, and one night I was winding it up and the spring broke. Luckily I have a handy hubby that was able to fix it. I don't know if I could sleep without its faithful ticking away.
    I hope you have a great day!

  38. Ha! Considering how long it's taken the snow to melt in our area, I would've kept the houses up a little longer! Your clocks are so fun...you DID do a great job for a 10 minute project!
