Where we lay our heads

Kelly's Korner is hosting "Show us where you live" and today features master bedrooms. I thought I would play along this week since our bedroom is one of my favorite rooms in our little house.

So, come on in to our bedroom!
This is from the door, looking into our room.

I just changed out the bedspread yesterday too, thus another reason why I wanted to play along this week!
Believe it or not, this bedspread set came from my mom. She wanted me to sell it and I decided I'd keep it. I'm not too crazy about it, but I do like the change and it was "FREE.99" as I like to call it.
I doubt it can stay white/cream color for long with Ava's sippy cups and yogurt fingers!
Here is a closer pic of the bed and Aaron's side.

This is the picture that you see above our headboard. It was Ava at 11 months. I just love this picture!!

Another picture of Aaron's side and a view into our bathroom.

That glider was from when Ava was born and Aaron got to pick it out. It's leather and the color of our house for the most part. It went in our living room since it DID NOT match her room at all. Then, as toys started taking over, we moved the glider in here. Sometimes Aaron likes to escape back here and watch Survivor or The Apprentice in that chair.

Here is our dresser/mirror and hutch. On the left is our engagement picture and our wedding guests signed it. It's a keeper for sure.

On the dresser are pictures in glass/jeweled frames. I love those frames a ton and try to buy any I see that I just HAVE to HAVE when they are 50% off at Hobby Lobby.
This is our filing cabinet on that back wall as well (for lack of space in my house it goes here and it matches our furniture okay). I have some special keepsakes on this cabinet.

The candle is a memory candle and it burned on our wedding day as a tangent object to signify my dad's "presence" although he was absent. It reads, "In Loving Memory. This light shines as a symbol of a life and love remembered. Bob McCaslin"
He died when I was 15 and it was so hard for me to imagine him not walking me down the aisle. This candle meant so much, although it is just a candle. I hope to always have that candle. It had a fancy ribbon tied in the middle.
Guess who took that off and misplaced it?? The other is a photo album of Ava's birth. It doesn't match my room at all. It matches hers and I hope to one day put it in her room when I know she won't destroy it to shreds.
This is my side of bed. WE ARE ADDICTED to the humidifier's white noise. Can't sleep without it. And yes, it's an eyesore in that room. But I don't really care.

The picture up is of me in my wedding dress. I've heard that once you have children you should take all your wedding pictures down and replace them with family and chilren pics. But we plan to move soon anyway, and we only got married 4 years ago so we still have time in my eyes.
And I like to break the rules. If there really is such a rule. Has anyone else heard that before??
Thanks for taking a peak into our room! It was fun to share.


  1. Your bedroom is very pretty! I love the comforter and I love that bed!!

    What a sweet pic of Ava above your bed. She is a cute pie for sure.

    I haven't heard that re: replace wedding pics with kid pics thing. I always heard to only put pics of you and your spouse in your bedroom. I don't even know where I heard it! I have just always done it.

    I love Hobby Lobby's 1/2 price sales...I can always find something fun on sale there!

  2. I haven't heard that rule either! I do think its funny when you can tell that someone just got married because they have tons of wedding stuff out on display. Your bridal pic looks great!

  3. I love how you have alot of things in your room that are special to you and as far as the wedding picture goes I think your master should mainly be about you and your spouse anyways so I think it's fitting. :)

  4. Love that bed!


  5. I have NEVER heard that whole wedding- kid picture bit. We still have wedding pics up, too! :) Love your room.

  6. GIRL!!! I love your room, it's beautiful, just like you!! Girl, your hot, love that wedding photo!! I love the colors in your room and your bed, will you come help me?! We have such similar tastes!! Love, love your room!!

  7. Oh, I forgot to say that we have that same humidifer too! :)

  8. I love your room! Have you had any luck selling your house? I haven't been on twitter in forever... I just don't have time these days with my job! :)

  9. I've never heard of that rule- keep it up!! Your room is lovely!

  10. You room is very nice! I really like the linens and for free!!! I am wondering if you could dye the set to a shade you like better and would match sippy cup spills? You can do so much with Rit dye!

    bee blessed

  11. Your bed is gorgeous! And that pic of Miss Ava is the CUTEST!

  12. Love this room and love the colors in your blog...makes me want to change to the same colors......

    Great blog....Happy Saturday!
    I have a Christmas ornament giveaway on my holiday bog that ends Sunday night....

  13. Ashley, I have ALWAYS intended to participate in the showcase your life series and never ever do...maybe I'll get organized someday and LOVE seeing your room. Our wedding pictures will always be hanging...because I want to remember what a happy day it was and that indeed I once was fit and in shape. :)


SheShe Made
My photo
Ft. Worth, Texas
After having my girly girl in April of 08, and spending oodles of money on one of a kind boutique, monogrammed clothing (with hairbows to match), I decided it was time to learn this trade myself before I went broke! I learned how to sew, embroider, and make hairbows in a matter of 3 months. What started as a hobby has turned into a dream come true. I quit my job as a teacher and now work from home when the little one sleeps. My life as a mommy and a boutique clothing designer/manufacturer/monogrammer is truly the best of both worlds!! I have big dreams for the future of my family and the future of SheShe Made. Thanks for joining me as I blog about the journey. Let me know if there is a bow or outfit you'd like custom made for you! Email me at and thanks for stopping by!
