Frugal Friday~

Welcome to this week's edition of Frugal Friday!

My internet is back up!  Hooray!  My phone still has a cracked screen...but I got some of the apps to work again.  I'm trying to hold out until my next upgrade, wish me luck.

But since my tech-y woes are not the reason you're reading this, let's get on to the good stuff!

For my Frugal Round-up this week I have some wonderfully rustic pretties to share!

First up, I love the pretty rustic kitchen shelves shared by So Much Better With Age.  They offer the perfect contrast to the clean and sleek white subway back splash in her lovely kitchen.

Master Bedroom Spruce-Up: Sources~

When I posted about my master bedroom spruce-up a couple of days ago, I promised that I would follow up with sources on the furniture and other bedding.  So I'm back to do just that.




As I mentioned in my previous post, the duvet and matching shams are from  Crane & Canopy

Master Bedroom Spruce-Up~

I felt like it was about time that I dedicate a little bit of energy to making my master bedroom a prettier place to be.  Rather than tackling rooms from start to finish, I've kind of been working on them piecemeal ever since we moved into Hydeaway Cottage.  

And although there are still a few things on my list of to-do's in the master bedroom, at least I can cross some off.

You may recall, if you saw my Christmas House Tour, that my master bedroom looked like this...

BEFORE

It was pretty...and I liked it.  But after I removed the Christmas red tartan, and took down the winter horse print, the room lacked color.

But here it is today...


AFTER


And there you have it.  Pop!  Bam!  - color in the master bedroom!  

I was approached a few months back to see if I'd be willing to try out a duvet cover from Crane & Canopy.  I had actually had my eye on this blue duvet, the Noe duvet, for a while.  So I jumped at the chance.  It also comes in a pretty gray, and I'll be honest, I did consider the gray, but I really wanted to bring some color into the room, and so I chose the blue.
