Ooh Allison-what great photos!! I especially love the ones of your bookshelves, they look fabulous! I would love to curl up in one of your cosy armchairs and flick through all your lovely home magazines and mystery novels!! And, I have to say again that your bedroom is scrumptious-I love your colour combination, I would never have thought of choosing those colours, but they work so well don't they!! Duck egg blue is one of my favourite colours too.

I am so pleased that you love your new job,you must be so relieved that you made the right move! And the shorter journey makes it even better!!
Have a gorgeous (now much more work-related stressfree!!) weekend!!

Thanks for the peek (very inspiring)
Good to hear the new job is going well. Change can be hard but sometimes so worth it :0)


Thanks for sharing your home with us again. Your bedroom looks so restful -- I love the colors. And I'm a bookshelf "nut" so I enjoyed everything single thing on yours. My dream house will have a library room and the shelves will be full of wonderful books and things.

I'm glad your new job is going well and that it was a good change for you. I have wondered how you were doing. I made a similar positive change nearly two years ago and often wonder why I didn't do it much sooner.

I'll visit again soon. I check in often. Enjoy your laptop.


I love to see bookshelves filled with books and pretty things. A house without books is a dull house in my opinion! And congratulations on your new job; it's a scary thing leaving what you know. Although I love my current job I have been thinking that maybe it's time to move on, I do feel a little undervalued at times. No rush but I'll keep an eye on what else is out there. Glad to hear your job change was a good one.


Glad your new job is going so well. YAY!!
Love seeing all of your wonderful things. Your shelves look great!
I posted my bed too!
Have a great Sunday!


I love your duvet or ? on the bed! Is that brown too? WHERE did you get it? I al in love with toile and just adore the stripes on it!


I'm so very pleased that you are hapy in your new job.


Your bedroom is lovely! I am inspired by your bookshelves. My magazines are getting a little out of control right now so your post is the inspiration I needed. I feel a before and after project coming up for my blog! Glad your new job is going great and that you are not spending as much time on the road. Your area in the metro is getting pretty bad.


I feel relieved for you!
I was waiting for that typewriter to appear in your photos, and it finally did :) Yesterday was my lucky day and because of you I spent $15! It even has the ribbon in it. Sooo heavy! But can you believe that price? I am going to insert an old letter which isn't typed but in old love letter written from a woman to a man...a marriage proposal!


I am so happy to hear your job is going well. I had been watching for an update on it.
As usual, your pics are so pretty!


Good for your job! It's great when it works out. My new job is a great one...the hardest I have ever worked, but I am compensated well for it. Your photos are great. My bed is hardly ever made. Maybe when I get the room painted and the dust ruffle on, it will be better? Have a great week!


Your bedroom really is stunning! And you are right, it is so easy to get "stuck" in our ways, change can be good!!

Glad you love the new job!!!!!!


I am so, so happy for you. It is so wonderful that you found something you really like and have been able to shut out that not so great job experience. I love your bed and bookcases and the color combinations you use throughout your home. It certainly is cozy!

the feathered nest

Glad you're happy with your new job. It makes a huge difference. Love your bedroom! I have black & white toile on mine and my walls are robins egg blue. So we have similar looks!

Your bookselves look great. I'd love to have build ins. Very pretty. Love your bedroom colors.
Happy 4th.


I always have a hard time with bookcases, mine always look cluttered. Thanks for the photos-it has inspired me to work on mine. LOVE the Nancy Drew books-I always loved her friend Honey.


Allie, it's always fun to see pics of your bedroom & other areas of your home. You have such great taste in everything. Love those built-ins...I have built-in envy & would love some of those too. You have them accessorized so pretty.

Congrats on loving your new job too...that's great news!

You have gorgeous built-ins. They must be so much fun to arrange and rearrange!

Southern Heart

Allison, your room is so pretty, and has so many lovely touches. I love your bookcases (you're so organized, too!).

I'm so glad to hear that you are much happier with your new job! That's the best news I've heard all week!



Hi Allie - enjoyed seeing pics of your lovely rooms again. I'm so happy that the new job is working out so well for you, you deserve to be happy and stress free.
Hope you will have time to visit me and share the pics of the recent trip to Canada - I had such a fun time as you will see!
Stay happy - best wishes,


I love your bookcase! So cozy and homey. I always wanted a built-in bookcase but settled for a couple floor to ceiling ones from Costco. I wanted to paint them white.... and your's shows me how great they might just look! Thanks. Nancy
