Dresser Top Transformed

This is what I have been waking up to every morning :(
One of my goals for this past week was to get the bedroom tidied up.
It seems to be the place to drop all those odds 'n ends
and it's time they are put away.

I pulled out a runner that my mom x-stitched for me.
I thought it complemented the pillowcases I stitched.

Then I put back on the vintage lamp. 

The picture complements the romance theme I'm trying to go for.

I found this at Winners on clearance and it was just what I had been looking for.
I love the silver bottom.

These potpourri balls were also on clearance at Winners as well.
I love the colors.

So I figured I'd put the two together.

I added a few books of poems and love quotes.

And one of hubby's favorite pictures taken on our wedding day.

And a potpourri burner behind the books.
(another present from my parents)

And a heart shaped tealight holder which I bought at the Dollar Store.

Now, when I wake up in the morning...

This will be what I see.

A much better way to start the day :)

I will be joining Susan at "Between Naps on the Porch" for Metamorphosis Monday


Marty at "A Stroll Through Life" for Tabletop Tuesday

And Gina at "The Shabby Chic Cottage" for Transformation Thursdays
