A little over a week ago I got the bug to re-arrange my bedroom, and I couldn't be happier about it. For some reason, my bedroom has never felt just right. I have re-arranged it so many times since we have lived here, and now it finally feels right. I had all of my necklaces clustered together on an old wooden piano piece with pegs... which worked really well for storage, but always felt too cluttered. I kept several of my pieces over on it, but spread out my favorite pieces on this other wall, as a part of the design. I love how they all feel like artwork on the walls now.
I love that so many of the pieces in my home have sentimental value. This birdie dish that holds my rings was used in our wedding. My dad built me this very special hope chest when I was younger. It is so well made and I cherish it so much. It is stuffed full of old memories and baby clothes... The lantern I got from my bestie. The antlers were gifts from my brother. The ceramic birdie was from my cousin. The soapstone box was from my uncle. The arched little mirror was the mirror in our bathroom when I was little. The stand up mirror was handed down to me from my aunt. The old wooden shelf that has my bracelets and earrings on my pap made as a plant stand. The deer skull was the first skull I have found with horns, on my parents land. The white vintage macrame owl was a gift from a friend. The amethyst stone bookends were a gift from a friend. The little yellow faceted salt shaker next to my oils was the first antique treasure my mom ever bought when she was a little girl. My pap took her antiquing to give her the bug, and this is what she chose. (And she caught the bug, and passed it on to me.) The black leather macrame windchime was a gift from Sun & Glory, made with woodpecker feathers (which is my birth totem). The dreamcatcher was made for me by Spirit Tribe with my birthstones. The feather pinned to the wall was a special gift from a friend. The Janis Joplin record was my mom's and has been a part of my room or home decor since I swiped it from her when I was a teenager. The adorable wooden sun was my mothers, and I just adore it. The print from Hannah Chloe was painted with my headband as the inspiration. And of course all of the jewelry pieces are very special pieces from so many artisan friends... too many to name. But each one is so special. There is so much magic in this corner!!! (and the twinkle lights just highlight it).
I love how simply moving stuff around in a new way can make everything feel so fresh and re-inspiring! I like to read at night before bed, so when I turn on my twinkle lights and read while James falls asleep next to me, I am just in heaven now. I feel like I have even been sleeping better since the new change. And, it inspires me to re-arrange other areas in my house when I get the time!
