Pastel Bedroom Love....And Unique Dreamcatcher Inspiration

I've been working hard on organizing our home for Spring...and something else that I'll share with you in a few weeks and very excited about that is sure to keep me busy for awhile! 
This morning I worked in the bedroom and then
took a petite break to get some fresh air in the garden out back. Everything looks so pretty out there right now, and we have lots of flowers in bloom. It got me thinking that I wanted to spruce up the bedroom with more color in Spring tones.

I started by cutting some of the rich purple flowers out back and adding them to an antique lavender glass pitcher that was in my prop closet for a pop of deeper color. I love to style in threes....so took some cardboard vintage wallpaper containers leftover from candles and filled with vintage millinery that I collect (ok-hoard:-)...
 Something fresh was in order to hang over the bed....fresh and Spring infused...

Once again I turned to my trusted prop area, and used several of my vintage botanical floral prints that are part of a portfolio book I sourced years ago on an antiquing jaunt. The prints are all in plastic sleeves and I want to preserve them, so added some double sided wall mounting tape to the back of each...
Next came one of those ideas that just popped into my head, and I took a couple of embroidery hoops and sandwiched an antique French lace bed cap in between  each of the hoops on both. Once again I collect these and don't want to damage, so this is a great way to display without doing so. A bit of old tulle hangs from one to give it a "dreamcatcher" effect...
Off to the linen cabinet to see what I had and piled on lots of pastel and white...mostly all from Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic and a few other favorites...
 I've got my Spring palette now...in whites with lavender, pale teal and dusty pink. My Shabbyfufu tones...
 Mini British florals, petticoat ruffles and tufting. What could be better?!
 Unstructured and pillow strewn, this will make for a great afternoon nap...
I hope that your week goes smoothly....come over and visit me on my other social media platforms if you can....
xoxo,
Janet
