Enjoying Some Free Time

Now that the month of Busy is one day away from being over, I find I have a little more free time. And free time is good! Free time means more projects as well as more time for her:

Isn't she beautiful! I am in love with my niece. :)

Free time also means that I finally *finished* my room. (I'm sure I'll make adjustments and add some things eventually, but this is what I had!)

My "library" that makes me happy. The bookcase was mine as a baby, the lamp was $5 at WalMart!!!

This is the print up close. :) Isn't it silly? from The Black Apple

My teensy bed turned sideways for maximum space. I also think it makes the space seem like a garden library since it's almost like a couch. ;) (All the pillows, shams, and sheets were clearance at some point, mostly from Target)

This cabinet is one of four pieces I got off Craigslist (cabinet, nightstand, desk, file cabinet) for $175!! All in good shape, all IKEA. This friend holds my Real Simple and Better Homes & Gardens magazines and all of my linens are inside the doors.

Another Black Apple print, isn't she cute? I want a red piano!

And my last Black Apple print. I love this one because the girl is so cute and reading (!) to her little friends.
All 3 of my Black Apple prints are in frames from the Dollar Store that I painted with acrylic paints that I bought on clearance from JoAnn awhile back. :)
This is my desk. I love having a real desk - there is so much space to write and do projects. I have a keyboard and mouse tray that needs to be installed, then I'll have even more space! (and I got that chair off Craigslist for $20! I need to recover it, but it's so whimsical!)
This little spot makes my heart happy every time I see it. I don't know why. :) I made the fleur de lis out of construction paper years ago and backed it with some mint and red toile. The lamp shade is from Goodwill, the ribbon was the packaging from my winter quilt. ;) (of which you can only see a corner, but it's a red bow)
Aren't these fellows fun? They're salt and pepper shakers! They came from a vintage shop Thrush and I just love them! I have a small bird theme throughout the room; they remind me of gardens, cottages, and stories. Some of my favorite things!

My room wouldn't be complete without the primary occupant. My faithful reading and snuggling companion, Banjo.
