My new bedroom!

So I finally have gotten settled into my new place in Brooklyn!
I have been getting used to biking to the L and taking the subway 20 minutes into Manhattan to get to class. It is nice to get on my bike every day, perhaps sometime I will even make it over the Williamsburg bridge...until then, subway.

These are just a few pictures of my new room. The entire thing doesn't feel quite ready yet, so I am only showing a few little bits!

There was a big deliberation over mum and I went to every TJ Maxx and Marshalls in the bay state area it seemed, to find the perfect one. We couldn't choose between the tiny rosebud comforter, and the cottage rose quilt, so it was her idea to use them both. She's a smartie.

The crocheted and lace pillows were collected from various antique stores.

I couldn't believe when I found this (working!) typewriter on the side of the road! Someone had tried to sell it at a yardsale, but when they closed up shop around 3:00 pm, it went out to the road.
The wallpapered chest of drawers came from the Brimfield Antique Show. I spotted it in this one woman's booth, and went back and forth to it about four times before I realized how my heart would break if it didn't come home with me. $20 seemed pretty steep to me for such a thing, but I had to have it! 

You'll also notice the adorable little postcards my boyfriend has been sending me. His blog is HERE. Lots of drawings and vintage photographs.

Also, thanks so much to my three international buyers! There are still some lovely things left in the shop, and I don't want to restock until I sell most of it all, so keep shopping :)
