Girls Room Update: Embroidered Eyelet Sheets & Window Treatment

I've been dying to show you these sweet, widely embroidered eyelet sheets for the girls bed, compliments of my newest sponsor, The Bed and Bath Hut.

But first, let me remind you all to enter my current giveaway...a dress from Shabby Apple.  Enter HERE.

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you all one of the rooms we've, for the most part, completed at the house.  It's Kalyn's and Ashton's room which you can see more of HERE and if you want a real shocker, you can see what it and the rest of this house looked like before we moved in HERE.

The white sheets are 400 thread count and have a deep, eyelet lace embroidery.  They're beautiful, and soooo soft.  I surprised Kalyn and Ashton by having them laundered and on the bed when they returned home from a night at Grandma's and Grandpa's house.
They also come in all of the colors shown below, and for only $59 you get the set (two pillowcases, a flat sheet and a fitted sheet) ... delivered to your door!  No shipping fee!

Isn't the detail in these sheets lovely?   I just love the crisp pop of's so fresh looking.  Eyelet is so dainty.

Here's the bed made up BEFORE, without the eyelet sheets 

And AFTER, with the addition of the eyelet sheets:

The Bed and Bath Hut carries a full range of bed and bath linens ...almost 4,000 different items!  They have comforters, baby bedding, quilts, bed in bag sets, duvets, and 2000 or so sheet sets.
I have my eye on this set of Battenburg sheets for my bed.  

I also made some changes to the window treatment in this room.  The drapes (fabric shower curtains) are hung on an extra rod which hangs on coat hooks rather than traditional drapery hardware.  Above them, in between the hooks, is a matching topper.  Before, and because I just used the first thing I could find that I already had to hang these on (I am impatient), I used a silver rod...we've swapped that out for another one I had and just got unpacked.   It is a perfect match to the gold tones in the leaves of the hooks and window topper.  See the difference.

BEFORE with the silver rod

AFTER with the antiqued gold rod.  Better, don't you agree?

The girls don't have a view outside their window so we also hung an embroidered cotton panel to allow light to flow in. Although my photos are not good, I love the way the sun shines through these light cotton panels, highlighting the embroidered work.

I am still working on the rest of the house and will share more updates soon. 

If you visit please let them know that I sent you over.

I used to lie between cool, clean sheets at night after I'd had a bath, after I had washed my hair and scrubbed my knuckles and finger-nails and teeth. Then I could lie quite still in the dark with my face to the window with the trees in it, and talk to God.

English Cottage Living Room - Before, Partly After & Still a Work in Progress

I am sorry for not posting more pictures of the progress we've made settling into this new (to us) home.   It seems life rushes by so fast and that at times, doing little things, even those that I love and enjoy, often get pushed aside and onto the back shelf of my mind where I tell myself, "I'll get to this later".  Well, it is later and though I don't have as much to share with you as I'd like, I'm going to at least share my favorite spot in our living room.  I promise to show the rest of the room soon but for now the opposite half of the living room has been occupied by my daughters boyfriend who has been staying with us for the past 7 or so weeks until his apartment is ready for him to move into, and so the couch is usually made up for him to sleep on!   Here is a photo of the current living room just as we found it, a small room just off the entry of the house with a nice marble and wood fireplace surround, hard wood floors, beautiful crown mouldi

The History of Johnson Brothers and The Friendly Village Tablescape

Last week, Shawn and I popped into a couple of estate sales and I picked up over 100 pieces of Johnson Brother's The Friendly Village .  I think I may have to hang on to 12 of the dinner plates and use them this year at Thanksgiving but the rest of them, including this 48 piece service for 8, will be you know where. I don't know about you all, but I have had enough of Summer and I am down right ready for the cooler temperatures of Autumn.  I've been doing a lot of rearranging around the house….I'm in one of those zones where I've got a zillion projects going on, even if half of them are just in my mind that I'm contemplating!   We've also been moving kids out and around.  Three of them are out and the three still at home are moving or rearranging their rooms around.    Since I am yearning for Fall, haven't posted any tablescapes in a while and just got these Friendly Village pieces I decided to set the table with them.      Oh great, I

More Traditional Red White & Blue Rooms with Transferware

Decorating with Brown Transferware & $100 GIVEAWAY

Brown was introduced as a transferware color around 1829-30 and is the least expensive of colors to make. Therefore it is fairly common, so far as transferware goes, to find.  It is also one of the most collected colors and it is probably the most versatile of colors in my opinion.  Brown is neutral and looks good with any color scheme from pastels to rich jewel tones, but it is with the ushering in of Autumn that I see it popping up in home decor and vignettes the most.  Though, most of these rooms and vignettes are decorated with brown pieces year round, it just seems the perfect time to share them.  I may have to do another post because there are so, so many more equally beautiful spaces that have incorporated the use of displaying brown transferware  and I can't fit them all here. So, check these lovelies out and then stick around for the giveaway at the bottom of the post. This vignette just stole my heart the first time I saw it.  So many of us have vintage luggage

The Aesthetic Movement and Transferware

What is the Aesthetic Movement? The Aesthetic Movement refers to a period of time in the late 19 th century (1870-1900) which was a backlash to the formal Victorian years.  Artists and writers of the Aesthetic movement period maintained the belief that art should provide refined sensuous pleasure, rather than convey moral or sentimental messages.  They believed that art did not have any didactic purpose; it need only be beautiful.  Japanese art had a great influence on Aestheticism. Aesthetic interiors were often decorated with Japanese prints, screens, fans and other objects. An appreciation of the art of Japan is seen in the work of many Aesthetic artists and designers such as James McNeill Whistler and E.W. Godwin. photo credit Country Living The Aesthetes developed the cult of beauty, which they considered the basic factor in art. They ascertained that life should copy art and considered nature as crude and lacking in design

My English Country Mom Cave

Susan, at Between Naps on the Porch is hosting a Home Goods Mom Cave contest with four lucky winners.  Come on in to my little niche I've carved out of my house.  This is where I work, create, relax, read and chat with friends and family. This is one of my favorite spots in the house to read about one of my favorite subjects...English transferware or poetry, and drink tea.  I often start and end my day right here. Next to the chair is an antique dumbwaiter which holds some decorative items as well as lots of poetry books.  This is the view of the room from the wing back chair.  This cozy room serves as a small living room, although it's not uncommon to have 8 or 9 of the girls in here during family gatherings.  It's usually where we all wind up to have coffee and visit. . On either side of the sofa I display some of my vintage Canine figurines on Spode meat drainers. Above the sofa are some of my favorite paintings.  The one directly over the sofa my Mom pain

Decorating with Blue Transferware and a GIVEAWAY!

   If you haven't already been over to Enchanted Home , you'll want to go over after you finish this post because the wonderful Tina, who authors the incredibly gorgeous blog,  has a great post up about decorating with dishes plus she's hosting a giveaway to my online shop, English Transferware !  Details at the end of the post! I know Tina loves blue and white (just look at her header and you'll know!) and has a collection of her own. In honor of Tina, I've decided to share some of my favorite images of rooms decorated with and often around blue transferware collections.  You can see more rooms decorated with blue transferware on my Pinterest board . To me, Charles Faudree is just about as synonymous with English transferware as he his with French Country Decorating...he seemed to always find a use for it in his incredibly detailed decorating schemes.  Isn't this bedroom charming? I love this next image from Decor Magazine.  Look how the blu
