I love dresses, anyone who knows me usually sees me in a dress. The little black dress was an inspiration for my room. Red is the color so roses are sprinkled across the bed. The dress form wears one of my favorite dresses. The dress form was a special surprise Christmas gift from my youngest daughter Kate, I love it and it is perfect in the bow window!


I did not paint the gorgeous dresser but I did redo the lamp and make the wall hanging above the bed. The other three bedrooms are more Victorian in keeping with the 1840's home but I went slightly more modern and decidedly feminine!

Once the new ensuite is finished it will be a very romantic retreat! We should love our spaces, our homes to be a reflection of who we are. Everytime I walk into my room it makes me smile!

Have a delightful creative day!

Today is the first Monday of the month which means the Designer Crafts Connection Blog Hop! Today this talented designer group is featuring crafty designs made with school supplies. I always look forward to participating but having recently moved I am still unpacking my craft supplies and getting organized. I am out of the loop for this round but hop over to Julie McGuffee's blog to get hopping! We always have a great give away too!

Speaking of school :) as I smoothly segue here! I just moved into the most beautiful house, a heritage landmark overlooking the river in downtown Fredericton. It is a classic Gothic Revival Style built around 1840 and was purchased in 1870 by the first province born University of New Brunswick president Thomas Harrison. Later Premier McNair who held four terms and was appointed Lt. Govenor lived in the home for forty years. Premier McNair held three degrees from UNB. The home has a rich heritage and is beautiful. I feel like I have lived here forever! I love the Victorian era so I now have an excuse to dress in period outfits! :) More exciting plans are in the works for the place!
