be the most ignored. MyLove has agreed that if I keep the bedroom somewhat masculine, meaning no frou-frou or flowers,
then he will leave the rest of the home decorating up to me. So with that compromise in mind I have tried to stick with the deeper masculine tones yet at the same time trying to keep it a bit appealing to my feminine eye.
Total score for me because it means this guy below and his friends can all stay in MyLove's

He was so prominently located on our fireplace so I had to spruce him up at times to make him more tolerable. This dude has had more makeovers than anyone in our household! (He was the decorating compromise in the other house as I had to leave him above the fireplace mantel) I do still bring him out of hiding from time to time...like for parties and special occasions. Luckily MyLove is a good sport!
In the meantime I came across these at the Family Dollar Store for $10 each. At such a great price I purchased two of them. I think they will do for now. I like the extra little feminine swirls that they add to the room.

And here it is! I can hear MyLove right now saying, "Tami, do you really have to label my side of the bed?" Why yes I do honey, now just smile and go to sleep! Actually as I write this, I don't think he has even noticed them yet. Or else he is just polite and knows it's best to not say a word about it!

Do you think I have some OCD symmetrical issues!?! Oh well, I like it.
Looking good! And for the final touch I headed over to Tarjay and added this vinyl word kit over the bathroom door..."Always Kiss Me Goodnight"
Well that's my Simple Updates to the Master Bedroom! Notice how I only showed you half of the room, maybe someday I will show you the
messy laundry other side.
Wow! You know what I realized? None of these things were from the side of the road! Imagine that! Any way my point was to also show you how while I do enjoy my "hobby" I don't want you to think my entire house looks like Sanford and Son.
And I leave you with this, the closeup of the picture on the side of my bed. Butterfly took this picture of MyLove and I strolling the beach near our home. I love how it wasn't planned and she just captured us in the moment, wading boots and all!
Happy Treasure Hunting.
