I am off to Salem, Massachusetts for Halloween, home of the Haunted Happenings. Now I really don’t like costumes but why not dress up for the occasion. When in Rome, do as the Romans, right?

What I like about my bedding update is the textures. The fabrics have beautiful weaves. The pillows are soft and add warmth. Overall, I feel like I’ve made the area much more cozy.

I’ve added the work of a few friends and a couple personal items (My nephew drew us Gameboys to play with because he’s got limited screen time). The only thing left is that closet door all the way on the right where I’m thinking of hanging a blanket, or something along those lines.
