Bohemian Daybed

Lately my style has changed a bit.
I find myself drawn to more bohemian, free-spirited styles. 
I think it may have something to do with Fall being just around the corner,
 I'm in the mood for something new.

I know I've mentioned this before but our sunroom/office is my favorite room in our home.
And when you walk into our home, you're almost always lured into the sunroom by it's sunlight and warm, cozy feel.

I found this awesome Aztec sleeping bag in our camp trailer and knew I had to bring it into our home.
I'm sure it will eventually get put back into the trailer but for now I'm enjoying it on our daybed, surrounded my lots of pillows. I think it all looks so very bohemian. 

This beautiful seashell  mobile came from our last trip to the Oregon Coast.  I've always wanted one of these, so this was my little souvenir I brought back.

 I love it hanging above the daybed.

 I think the colors of the bedding go well with our vacation gallery wall pictures that are above the desk.

I'm happy you stopped by today.

Last Camping trip of the year.

Well I got my wish and we went camping one last time for the year.
I love camping, it's one of my favorite things to do in the summer time.
So being able to go one last time was the ideal way to say goodbye to summer.

 We found us a beautiful little camping spot at Sage Hen Reservoir.
Our campsite was hidden in the trees, but we still had a great view of the water.

Idaho has such pretty mountains.

There is just something so peaceful about being out in nature.

And look! I even spotted a cute little gopher :)

I also came upon this cute little fishing boat.

Which I was tempted to take out for a joyride.

One of my favorite things about camping is taking afternoon naps in the tent trailer.

The campground had lots of trails to go hiking on.

 I also love to go hiking. 
Walking on a dirt trail, surrounded by tress, listening to the sounds of birds while cool breezes cross your face...... its just rejuvenating to the soul.
I think its important to get out into nature every so often.

 But mostly I just like to take lots of pictures of trees.

My Abby however, . . Not a Happy Camper.

We also played a lot of Skip BO. Which this guy here is the champion at.

My boys enjoy camping also.
But what little boy doesn't, right?
The dirt, the water, the tress to hide in. . .  so much fun!

Our cups kept blowing in the wind, so we came up with this brilliant idea.  We tied string onto the trailer and then attached clothes pins to hold our cups.  

We used sharpie markers to color the clothes pins and found them to be much easier then paints.  We then wrote our names on the clothes pins.

It was a fun little craft, my Jax told us 5 times how much fun he thought it was.

And then of course the best part of camping, the campfire and S'mores.

And we were even lucky to be camping under a full moon.

I am so Happy to have been able to go camping one last time.  And now is probably the perfect time to go, the weather is getting cooler which makes for some enjoyable days and cozy nights.

Thanks for stopping by,

Dream Catcher Makeover

Dream On,
Dream On,
Dream until Your Dreams Come True

I love dream catchers, and what they represent.
I found this sad little dream catcher at a yard sale, and new it just needed a little love.

And when I say love, I really mean a bunch of pretty ribbon and seashells. . . .

 And Feathers and Sea glass.

 Which I just simply tied on. 
The feathers are weaved into the lace, and the sea glass has been push snugly into the web.

But now the dream catcher looks so much more Dreamy. It's not so sad anymore.

 I've got it hanging above our bed.

What better place.

Thanks for stopping by,

Free Spirited Living Room

I hope you all had a wonderful labor day yesterday.
We just stuck around home, which was nice, I was able to get a few chores done.
Although, I must admit I'm dying to go camping one last time before it starts to get too cold.  I like Fall, but I always have a hard time saying goodbye to summer. 

So I did a little re-arranging and re-decorating in my living room.

I first moved the couch up against the wall. I really like it here, you can now sit and look out across the room and out the window.

I then hung up my cow skull and a wooden boat wheel clock amongst my "freckled laundry" pictures.
I recently found the clock at a yard sale and I am so smitten with it.

I had fun styling my coffee table. I brought in a few favorite little nic-nac's.
On the shelf below is the drawer of seashells I just blogged about HERE.

On my mantel I brought back the beer bottle candles I made last fall.  I then added a few extra bottles, candles, some feathers and a few shells.
I think it really has that Free Spirited vibe I was going for.

We have a really old tree in our front yard, and in the last wind storm a huge branch came crashing down.  After the neighbor went to town on it with his chainsaw, I decided to keep a log to use as a side table.

I also brought in this bamboo folding table. It use to be black but I recently painted it in white chalk paint.

And then with the new arrangement my white dresser is now across the room, under the window.

It's somewhat of an awkward layout, but change is always good.

I think the whole look of the room is very late summer - early fall looking.... Isn't that what they call Indian Summer?
So ya, lets just say the look of the room is Free Spirited - Indian summer.  I love that!
