Antique Door Headboard {Yay, the black metal thingie is gone!!! }

For Mothers Day my hubby got me the BEST gift EVER! He knows how badly I hated the old headboard that we had on our bed. {Something he had purchased a few months before we met.} I had always talked about finding an old antique door and using that for our headboard, something inexpensive and cheap. Well, guess what he walks in with Mothersday Morning as I am eating a wonderful breakfast that he and my kiddies had prepared!? Yup, an ANTIQUE DOOR!!! YAY! I was so excited! I have the best husband ever:-) Well, we finally got it hung up. I originally wanted to paint it another color, but after much debate I decided on keeping it white, and old looking. Washed it down with a few rags and lots of soap, than took some sandpaper to the doorknob that was caked in white paint, to get the original oil rubbed bronze to shine thru.  Hung it up and TaDA!!!
I LOOOOOOOOOOOVVVVE it! Its so rustic, and lovely. :-)
 Now suddenly all my decor and pillows come more together, to soon create 
my Master bedroom 
Masterpiece:-)

My Favorite things; Spanish sea glass bowl!

Had to share! I found this beauty for $15 at Ross and oh how I LOVE it!! I wasn't intending to buy anything that day, but here I found myself walking out with this beauty! Spanish Sea Glass...so pretty!!! Yes, it even says Made in Spain on the bottom;-) And yes, it is HUGE! {I often imagine how it would look in my white kitchen someday...Mmmm White Kitchen};-)
I am using it as a fruit bowl at the moment {dont you love the half eaten apple...thanks to my 4 yr old}. Anyhow, I was thinking of getting some beautiful dried hydrangeas and putting them in there. What else could I put inside of it? Any ideas??
