Some Progress!

At the beginning of the year I hinted that I started a master bedroom redo after I redid my closet in black and white. I was all gung ho. Then I got stuck.  So for a couple months my bedroom has been half way black and white and the other half brown and blue. And it has been driving me crazy. 

Today I had a breakthrough. I was downtown all day and decided to stop in TJ’s for a minute when I spotted these! I did a happy dance in the aisle!!

PS – I have been gone all day and am about to leave again, 
but I hope to come by and say hi later tonight! 
Have a great night!


  1. Absolutely love them!! Now you have me wanting to go to TJ Maxx tomorrow!!

  2. Is it sad that I have never been in TJ Maxx before? I just found out there is one about 30 miles away but havent made the trip yet…I live a sheltered small town life what can I say?

  3. TJ's pretty much rocks. Those are fabulous!!!

    These pillows are so pretty. We love TJ Maxx!! We are working on some projects now with yoyos, pillows and such. We just started our blog, stop on by : http://www.thatissovintageohmy.blogspot.com

  5. Oh, I love, love, love each pillow!! I'm a big fan of houndstooth, and black & white in general. I'm so glad the blue & brown trend is phasing into black&white- – it's been a fave of mine since I was a child, believe it or not! lol. Can't wait to see what else you add to your beautiful room.


  6. Those are so cute! I'm thinking of re-doing our bedroom or some room in black and white. I'm jealous!

    Wow, now that is some progress. I love the black pillows on the outside of the bed. I can't wait to see the entire redo. Looks like it will be worth the wait!
    Have a great day!

  8. Can't wait to see it!


  9. Gorgeous Jen, just gorgeous!! I can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve! xxoo

  10. I would have snatched those up too if I had seen them. They match the black and white yo yo quilt I made.

    I posted about my Valentine Party and also my daughter's. It might give you ideas for your next party. However, I think you live close enough to me that you could join in next year. A couple of the girls are moving. :)

    I ~LOVE~ those pillows! This room is going to be AWESOME! Can't wait to see more!

  13. Those pillows are gorgeous! Right now I am trying to decide if I should do my bedroom black and white or just go with a mishmash of colors…I can't make up my mind because my walls are cafe au lait and I just don't know what would look right with them. I look forward to seeing more of what you are doing with your room!

  14. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Sooo great!
