Old french iron bed & 5th bloggiversary giveback!

Update:
Just playing along again in Donna's Funky Junk's SNS (= Saturday Night Special - see also my sidebar button) which has the theme "Window sills" today - so I'll add a phew more shots of my window sill from the same shooting day as the other pictures in this post from when I put the left over iron element from the old french children bed in the window. Oh and btw you are all cordially invited to play along in my 5th bloggiversary giveback at the end of this post!
xoxo~ Carola

**************************************************************************

Oh my I'm such a bad blogger dear readers and friends, I know and that in the month of my 5th bloggiversary *blushes*, I promised you a post with a giveback in September and I really tried hard but it was such a busy month, oh well but at least on the very last day of the month of September I finally got arround to do my long overdue post: 


Before I come to my giveback I'd like to share with you my new sofa! As you can see it really is an old french iron children bed. My mom bought it about 17 years ago during a wonderful vacation we had together in the South of France in my favorite Provence in a brocante shop. And we brought it back home on the rooftop of my old car. My mom then had it in her room decorated with her beautiful antique dolls for some years and when new grandbabies arrived, the dolls went out and the grandchildren went in lol but a few years ago she had to put it down because she needed the space and since then it sat in her basement waiting for a new life. When I got the latest Jeanne d'arc Living magazine I saw a picture of a french iron children bed in it and the bed was used as a sofa, I thought that was a genius idea and I suddenly remebered the bed we bought in France so long ago and asked my mom what had happened with it and she told me that she still has it in the basement and that of course I could have it! So yay! Here it is:


I bought a new thicker baby matress for the bed at IKEA. This matress is very comfortable to sit on and also I kind of like the contrast of the dark blue in my living room after some consideration I decided to paint it white again like it was originally. Seeing that for a sofa the bed needed to be open on one side I was lucky to have a scrolly iron piece left to use for further decoration and I started painting with that part and as always when I paint I spot some more pieces that could need a new life in white so I also quickly painted some candlesticks as you can see in this picture below:



 When the paint was dry and I tested how comfortable it was to sit on it I found out that I would need a warm backside to lean on, otherwise it wouldn't be comfortable enough. The feed sack I bought this Summer at our local flea maket sprang to mind and washed it and filled it with two big cushions and voilá my little iron sofa has a cosy backside :)



 On one hand it is a pity because now I cannot see the beautiful scrolly iron anymore but on the other hand I think it is more important to have a comfortable place to sit.



  If you wonder where I put the spare part of the bed well I tried it out here and there but it definitely looked best in the window and did you notice the new old lace curtain on the curtain rod, well that's another thing my mom had laying around and asked me if I would want it. Yes sure because I always thought the window looked a bit bare but I didn't find the right curtain well until now that is :)


 I also redecorated the window side further with the a plant stand I had outside in the garden and  brought in the house now that the outside season is almost over, I put it in the corner with the shutter on top and the table I had there in the corner I could now use as another couch table in fromt of the window.


I think it really is quite a cosy corner now and I love to spend time here, 



 I picked hydrangea bouquets to dry them and decorate for fall and I finally found some cream colored pumpkins for my fall decor as well, thanks to my sister who lives in the country side, Here in the city orange and green pumpkins is all you can get. My cousin Stefanie who also lives more in the country even got me some white Baby Boos that she will bring for me to our family reunion this weekend and I'm looking forward to decorate them as soon as I'm back next week.


I gathered acorns - I love acorns! - and put them in that pressed glass bowl. 


Some close ups of the pumpkins I got so far and the scrolly iron piece in the back. 


Well just for good measure I have to throw in another picture of my faux mantle 


 and of my dining room area as well


 Okay let's change the subject. I've not only been busy painting (and of course swapping but more on that later) this month I was also creative and productive once again in my studio, where it was to hot in Summer, but now the temps up there are just right.


 I was so happy when I found these domed round glasses at our local flea this Summer that are so great to put 3 dimensional pieces under, so I started a new line of pendants:

  

  I'm not quite finished yet:

5 years of blogging wow I still can't believe how fast these 5 years past and how lucky I still am to be part of this wonderful blogging community of like minded creative women! So for the giveback in celebration of my 5th bloggiversary and as a thank you I decided to give away two of the pendants above to two of my faithful readers/followers. I'll also add 2 beautiful Fall interior magazines that I bought during a business trip to Amsterdam last week. So that means that two readers will have a chance to win 2 pendants and two interior magazines each. All you have to do to win is leave me a comment on what you think about my blog in the comment section and if you are (or become) a follower you'll get a second chance to win. I'll announce the lucky winners in two weeks time!

Okay I gotta leave you know because work is calling, but I hope to see you again here soon when I share with you not only the winners of my give back, but also the beautiful swap I recently had with my German blogging friend Julia from Vintage with laces,

Until then have a good time everyone and enjoy the cooler temps of autumn!

xoxo~ Carola

P.S. I'm linking up with Kathleen's White Wednesday once again!

YES! Finally, a post from you, lol! I can't complain, because I was away from blogland for two months in the summer ( no internet in the cottage ). But what a lovely post you have come back with! I like the transformation of the French bed, and I LOVE your home! It is so cosy and warm and welcoming. I smiled with pleasure at each and every photo.
Gosh, you were lucky with that fleamarket find, those glass dome thingies are perfect for your creations. I think those pendants have all turned out beautifully.
Oh oh oh, and congratulations on 5 years of blogging, wow, thats an incredible milestone!
Of course I love your blog, otherwise I wouldn't be a follower!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I always enjoy poking around your home while you give a tour...so inspiring.

kathy said...

I love your work and decor. Always look forward to when you post. I wish we had pumpkins like that, but you have motivated me - I could at least put some here and there in the house to THINK its fall (we will be at 100 today in Vegas).

Isisjem said...

I love what you did with the vintage childs bed. You have such a great eye (indoors or out). I found you on Flickr on first but get more an insight into how you work from your blog.

The pendants are great too - particularly like the bee ones. I have a bit of a bee thing at the moment!

Isisjem said...

Oh and of course I follow your blog!

Pattie said...

I want to come to your cottage! It is so inviting! Lovely job! Love the chandelier, too!

Dawn said...

I have loved your place from the beginning! It is always a treat!
My fifth blog-iversary is coming up in November. Can't believe I have been at it this long.

Blessings on you and congratulations in advance to the two who receive your generous gifts.

Jeanne said...

Carola, your home is so beautiful and so interesting too. I always spend a lot of time taking in all the details. What a cozy-lookng home you have! That iron child's bed transformation turned out great. It fits perfectly in the spot you placed it. Your new pendant creations are amazing. The 3-dimensional items under the domed glass is such an unusual idea...I've never seen anything like them. Congratulations on your blog-anniversary! I would love it if you would enter my name in your "giveback."

NanaDiana said...

I am a newer follower and I love your blog. I started blogging this year and wondered if I would be doing this next year..lol I am hooked and think I am in for the long haul.

I love what you did with your children's bed. A friend of mine made one into a porch swing and it is adorable. Amazing what people can make out of old pieces and discards.

Sign me up for your drawing. What fun pieces those are...I am happy to have found you- Hugs- Diana

Ana said...

I find your blog and your home absolutely inviting and welcoming...I couldn´t have so many things around but yours house is so unique and beautiful...it´s a pitty we´re so far away. Congratulations oon your fifth aniversary

LiLi M. said...

Happy fifth blogversary Carola! I do hope that you will keep on blogging for many years. Love your home and all your vintage finds. We have a french girls' bed too, but hubby thinks we don't need it anymore as the girl is 16....hahaha, just give him some time ;-)! I think you did a good job repaint it to its original state. Mmm and I would love to stroll in your mothers' basement! I can remember that you once did a post of your mothers' home which was terrific. It seems to me that she has a treasure room hidden too!
Did you have a good time in the Netherlands? It must have been raining a lot :-(.

Cape Cod Rambling Rose said...

You've posted again, Carola! Your home is SO BEAUTIFUL! I love your French daybed. It makes the perfect sofa, especially with the striped linen. I just love reading your blog and looking at your beautiful home. I've mentioned to you before that I have much German roots. I always daydream of what my grandfather's home might have looked like inside when I look at all your lovely old German & European treasures. ;)

Robin Sanchez said...

I just love your dreamy home and new sofa. So much eye candy to drool over.

What an awesome giveaway. I follow you and would love to win one of your beautiful soldered items.

Paula said...

Dear Carola, How wonderful to see a new post from you! I love the beautiful French baby bed and the wonderful, happy memories you shared about it! I love it painted white and the cushions you bought and made for it. It looks so beautiful in your parlor! It is a perfect fit! The candlestick turned out lovely too! I love the lace curtain your mom gave you. It is perfect for that window! It adds such a romantic soft look, yet does not block your view into your gorgeous garden! I would love to spend time in that room too! Your autumn decorations are beautiful! I love the hydrangeas, acorns and pumpkins! Your mantel and dining room are gorgeous and so welcoming! I see the sparkly banner dearest Madai made!

I love the new pendants you are making! They are beautiful and you are so talented sweet friend!

I think your blog is inspiring, beautiful and cheerful! You have such a sweet sprit, you share your garden, your cottage, your artwork and your heart with us! What a blessing you are!

Love, Paula xoxoxo

oldgreymare said...

Welcome back girlfriend!

Seems like you have been gone for ages and ages. I know all your swaps keep you busy, well, then there is work and gardening. I think we all need to petition for more hours in the day..Oh wait..no way! : D

The cottage looks so inviting and cozy. I think your Mom must have a secret reserve of treasures - she keeps pulling things out for you, like bunnies from a hat.

Happy 5 years my dear. Kudos to you...

How is your Darling Daughter enjoying her new adventure? Mine is thrilled and filming on the streets of NY. I'll send you pics..

BIG hugs

Outofmymind said...

I ADORE the new charms. But I always love coming to visit. You always put a smile on my face. Congrats on 5 years!!!

Deb said...

Congratulations Carola on 5 years of blogging!!! It was my blogs 4th yr anniversary yesterday (I have yet to do a post)...do you know you were the first to leave a comment on my blog :-)I remember how excited I was to see a comment. Boxwood Cottage has always been on my "favourite blog" list.
Your little cottage looks so beautiful all dressed up with pumpkins & your domed glass pendants are amazing! You are so creative.

sandra said...

Carola, I love that gorgeous French iron day bed, and the transformation to white is perfect. How brave are you to paint in your living room?!? I'd have paint on everything! I adore the iron daybed opposite the wicker settee, and that feed sack cushion is beautiful. What a lucky gal you are to be able to raid your Mom's house...the curtains are so pretty across your big window. Looks like your hydrangeas have dried beautifully.
Your newest pendants are fabulous (as are all of your pendants)...what a wonderful giveaway.
Just a totally gorgeous post!
xoxo,
Sandra
p.s. I put your package in the mail today. ;-)

maryk said...

Oh Carola, I am always so delighted to read your blog. Your decorating style is so beautiful. Your pendants are gorgeous. I just became a fan!

Carole~Maynard Greenhouse said...

Oh Carola I was so thrilled to see a post from you. I know how busy you must be. Your blog is always such a treat to visit and you always open up your home and tell us what you've been up to. Love the new daybed. It's like it was made for that space and looks very comfy. Pretty is nice but comfy is more important and it does both.
The new pendants are incredible because it allows you to add a little trinket to each piece.

Oh of course congratulations on 5 yrs. WOW!!! It's quite an accomplishment.....so many give them up because of the time they take up.

Theresa said...

Hello Carola! I am in love with your new sofa! The cushions you made for it are absolutely stunning and look oh so comfortable! I love to see a new post from you, your home always looks so inviting, like one of those places you would never want to leave.
And then you create these lovely domed pendants. They are just beautiful, I would love to win one and would feel so special when I wore it! Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us! Theresa xoxo

Mary Ellen said...

I am always inspired by your beautiful home! Did you join the Best halloween ever swap this year? I was kinda hoping I would get to swap with you....someday!

Penny said...

You have created a beautiful, cozy home. How talented you are! Your pendants are also very beautiful. This time of year is very beautiful in Germany. Fall is such fun there. I hope you enjoy the season! And if chosen, I would absolutely love the magazine and/or the pendant.

Julia - "Vintage with Laces" said...

Congratulations on your 5th bloggiversay, Carola!!! The bed is beautiful and just perfect for your cottage. What a great idea you had to use that feed sack and put pillows inside. I love that there is still a bit of color in your decoration. I find this so much cosier than a pure white interior.
Have a wonderful Sunday and good luck if you go treasure hunting today :-)!
Hugs to you,
Julia

Roberta said...

High Street Cottage said...

Hi Carola, what a pretty bed! I have been looking for a crib to turn to a small sofa for a while. I passed up two at yard sales, as they weren't quite right. And often the price is a bit much. But it's on my list of things to hunt for while thrifting. You did a great job, and the story behind it is what's so nice. Now it has a third go 'round. Well done, I'm your newest follower, and I think I'll be visiting often.

Fabulously french said...

Happy 5th anniversary, I think that the bed looks fab!

Tarnished and Tattered said...

Carola,
Wonderful post! I love your posts because you give us so many amazing photos to gawk at. I blow each one up too so it takes me awhile to get thru the post. I want to see every single detail. The bed is wonderful. I love the look. I contemplated buying a black iron child's daybed from Ikea, do you know the one? I thought it looked so sweet & vintage but finally decided I had no where to put it. Now as for 5 years....WOW. What an accomplishment. Congrats & please enter me in the giveaway. The new dome pendants are beautiful as well. Lisa

Kelly_Deal said...

I'm glad I came across your blog! Your house is gorgeous!

paperbird said...

Happy five year sweet Carola.
Congratulations to you.
I love your pretty little blog and I am always amazed at the beauty that you share, especially in your amazing garden. If you lived here I would hire you as my gardner!!!!! LOL!
I am also so amazed at HOW much you fit in your little home. It is sweet and cozy and I love that you always share your fun and creative ideas :-)

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

What a lucky chickie you are to have that lovely little seat... It looks so cozy! And, the price was sure right.

LOVE your blog...and that you are not a minimalist. I'm not either and it's so nice to find someone who like things full to the brim of loveliness too....

Please throw me into the hat too!

Warm blessings,
Spencer

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Following too.... and I forgot to say how perfectly beautiful your pendants are! WONDERFUL.... I soooo hope to win!

Warm blessings,

June said...

Hi Carola,
I can't even imagine five years of blogging. This is wonderful that you still share your lovely life with all of us. Your home is one of the very first ones that I fell in love with when I first started looking at blogs. It then took me two more years to get up the nerve to have one of my own.
I think all your creations are lovely, and I adore your iron settee. It turned out just beautifully.
hugs to you...

Just a dreamer said...

Drop the new back cushion to lay flat on the bed so that everybody can see the beautiful scroll work and then only put it up when you want to cushion the back for sitting. The white base is not that attractive to begin with. Not nearly as pretty as the cushions you made out of the feed bags.

Terry said...

I found your blog through Funky Junk Interiors! I love your decorating style and your creativity, I'm your newest follower!

Alaina said...

I love the change to the crib. What a beautiful room, I like it all. I am catching up on my white wednesday, have a great weekend.

Lori said...

Just found you at Donna's Funky Junk I. You do the best at layering all your beauties. Cozy indeed. Love the sofa coach. I will be a new follower! PS five years and you still have word verification???

Secret Garden Cottage said...

Love your window sill decorations, Carola... so many pretty things to look at! Your iron daybed turned out fabulous... love the grain sack pillow!
Happy 5 year blogiversary... wow that's a long time! I wonder if I'll still be doing this in five years? I'm already a follower. :)
Have a wonderful weekend!

Liebe Carola!
Herzlichen Glückwunsch zum 5. Blogjubiläum!! Ich lese deinen Blog fast seit dem 1. Tag und immer noch mit der gleichen Freude, wie am Anfang. Du warst auch damals der Grund, dass ich selber mit dem Bloggen begonnen habe.
Deine Fotos sind wie immer wunderschön, dein Boxwoodcottage wird immer schöner. Es sieht so toll aus mit dem vielen Weiß! Und das Eisenbett ist einfach ein Traum. Soetwas würde mir für unser Gästezimmer auch gefallen.
Ich hoffe, ich bin noch nicht zu spät für den Lostopf.

Herzliche Grüße
Daniela!

Komme jetzt erst dazu mir deinen neusten Blogbericht anzuschauen und auch einen Kommentar zu hinterlassen. Allerdings habe ich bei 74 "Mitbewerbern" wohl kaum eine Chance einen deiner schönen Anänger zu erhaschen. Egal, ich schau eh immer sehr gerne bei dir rein und bin stets auf's Neue von deinen kreativen Ideen überrascht.
Deine neue Sitzgelegenheit sieht übrigens fantastisch aus, aber kommst du überhaupt zum sitzen? 'ggg'

LG Lis
