More Decorating

Here are a few pictures of my friend Sherry's house. I made the arrangement in the dining room and in the bedroom, they are both done in the acrylic water. They just moved in about a month ago, so I would say she's made alot of progress but still is working on the finishing touches. More pics to come in a later post.

I love this pillow, she got it at Homegoods.
Wow!
This is my bedroom! (when I'm here)

She had the shower curtain made. I love it!

Isn't this cute? I love the clothes pins on the shelf. I thought this might give some of you an idea.

Sherry made this. She is very creative! Another great idea!

She is a great decorator, I hope you enjoyed peeking into her house! Next week I'm going to show you a few more things around my house and I will soon have a blog give away!! Also I start decorating houses for christmas in a few weeks(can you believe it!) so I hope to have some pictures. So keep stopping by, I enjoy meeting you guys! I've made several new friends on here and hope to meet more.

I am so glad to see the beautiful face that goes with those beautiful rooms I've admired for so long on RMS-some of my very favorites. And of course, everybody whose been to RMS is trying to go out and buy draperies like those you hung in your living room. Being sure that you do not want to be just like everyone else, please let me know when you are ready to sell yours! And what fun to know that you live in Ark. (I'm sure no place close to me)since I am in the NE corner of Ark., closer to Memphis and Missouri than anything in Ark., but I sure am proud to call you a fellow Arkansan. Thanks for coming by my blog. I promise, things will get better over there. laurie (bargainhunr)

Twice as Nice said...

It's hard to believe she's only been there about a month. It looks like she has already made it so homey!

Kristens Creations said...

Sherry's fast! She had most of her furniture and accessories already in storage before she even had the house. Her house here in Arkansas is done more in burgandys, reds and golds so this is a change for her. Beleive me, I was shocked too! It's really going to be pretty.

Sherry said...

Kristen I love your blog! I would like to say how much I appreciate all the nice comments about the babies nursery (still working on it) and our home in Texas. We still have several things to do before the babies come because I don't think there will be much time to decorate for a few months afterwards. Thanks Again!! Sherry
