Oh my!



This is more or less how I spent my snowy Sunday. Important things like grocery shopping, buying a bunch of white ranunculus, cooking with kale, dusting out the cobwebs, stitching up my old tattered quilts, and of course ... re-arranging. It seems like every weekend I end up fussing with my bedroom, I think I'm finally getting there though - I've realized the more stuff I cram in - the cozier I feel. This weekend was sort of a big deal though since I'm clearing out all my things from my extra room/closet and moving it all into my teeny tiny bedroom. I feel like I'm living in some sort of fun world right now. There's just floor to ceiling stuff and a little three foot path that goes through my room (this extends for approximately 14 feet).

There are little fragile dresses hanging all around and I've got all sorts of pretty books stacked up and organized by color. My wooden thread collection is complete and spreads itself out perfectly across my windows. I've yet to add my wall hangings - but, I'm trying to save some things for me and Alice's shared studio space (by studio space I mean the spare room in our house that's only down the hall about 12 feet) I'm excited to see how the room will work itself out. We hope to make a few nice spots to take pictures by and hopefully we'll have the ultimate shipping table for our Forest Bound and Thirteen Eighty-Five endeavors. I'm sure one of us will share photos when the room is complete - but for now - here are the newest photos of my room and the chaos that it is:

It's funny - I don't know if you can tell from those pictures that it's all one tiny room! The claustrophobic ... *ahem - I mean cozy feeling doesn't really come across as well as it does in real life.  

Today was another snowy day and Alice was sweet enough to help me with some etsy photos - it was nice to have a clean room as the backdrop! Much cozier to be inside then outside in the white fluff!!

Now I'm off to bed - I've been sick for the past two weeks and I feel a relapse coming on - the dreaded 'hard to swallow soar throat' business!! I hope I wake up feeling better in the morning!!!

I have a "thing" for old vintage chairs, and I love yours.

Get lots of rest, drink lots of green tea and hope you feel better soon!

vintageveggie said...

Francesca said...

diana - thank you! I found it in my gram's attic! It's always a little too big for whatever space I put it in, but I always insist on keeping it around! And thanks for the warm wishes too!

ann - it is! I've just been so lazy about finishing the listing!!

vintageveggie: thank so much!!!

Love that cozy room, it reminds me lots of the rooms in "Interior Alchemy" by Rebecca Purcel. Have you read it? Such cool style.

Feel better :)

your room is so lovely and charming! reminds me of Beatrix Potter's room.

Alyssa said...

I'm so jealous of your room! Your old furniture is so beautiful, especially the dresser?desk? in the first shot.
I hope you feel better! I just got over one myself.

Hannah said...

Oh my is just about right! You have the most wonderful room I have ever seen. That first picture is just wonderful! I'll be moving from horrible student accommodation to a bigger flat come September and I hope to have collected enough pieces over the summer to give my room a similar feel!

Such lovely pictures! I love your closet pic :o)

I was wondering if it would be ok for me to put a picture or two of you on my blog? I am going to a Great Gatsby wedding in June, and I am currently searching for a dress to wear. Your two yellow dresses are so gorgeous, I wanted to put the pictures of them on my blog to share what Im looking for. You can leave me a comment or email me. Thanks so much Francesca!

Quincy :o)

your bedroom is the most beautiful place i have ever seen!! i love the thread collection above the window, and the pink chair, and the lamps, and everything else!

Emlyn said...

your bedroom reminds me of my aunt and uncles house -it is jam packed with beautiful and old curiosities in neutral colors. I love the effect in your room, so cozy.

don't drink the punch said...

i love your bedroom! i just moved into a new apartment and have been focusing on the kitchen and living room. i'm such a nester/pack rat, i think you've inspired me to share pictures of my apartment, which my sister calls "a curio shop" and get started on making my room cozy.

My rooms have always been incredibly tiny and cluttered. If I keep it clean, it's cosy. If not, it's just horribly messy! I love these photos!

Oh geez! I was just at the new--or rather, it moved into there--vintage/antique store in our area and they had that heart chair! I sat it and wanted it something awful! I knew I had seen it somewhere before :D
