pieces of the master

What do people hang above their beds? These are the serious questions that constantly run through my mind.. normal? not sure, but, it's true. I mean, mirrors are always pretty.. photos? a shelf? art?
Well, here's what is above ours..
This PB ledge was one of our first big married couple purchases, after the couch. I really do love it... and I'm so glad I can still say that after 2 years. That's like a decade in "lauren-decor-for-the-house" years. (I get tired of things prettttty quickly - sorry Blake)
 The left holds three stacks of books with varied heights and colors. Most found in Canton. On top you'll find an Ikea plant and pot, a delicious smelling candle, and a bridesmaid gift from one of my bff's Kate.. it's our engagement photo on a wood block (so cool, how does she think of these things??)
 aw, presh. 
I was looking through these photos the other night, and just thought.... my goodness, we look like babies. It's weird how things change in only 2 1/2 years. 
 Above the ledge I added a personal touch and some art. The left - our place-card from our wedding "Mr. and Mrs. Blake Johnson" and the right - some art that we found in our garage when we moved into this house.... I painted the frame white (it looks much happier), and I just love it now.  
 And finally, the right side. A duck and two lanterns. I pretty sure all of these items were found at Marshalls or HomeGoods. I'm a sucker for anything with a cut-out. And Blake would be the duck-lover. It's sort of perfect. 
The end! Dun Dun Duhhhhh!!!! 
PS. while in Houston this weekend, my mom and I scored at a discount fabric store (they were going out of business) with a whole bolt of this olive fabric for 20 bucks... can you imagine the joy???
My loving and talented mother sewed for me these two beautiful euro shams, and I'm in heaven. 
I want... eventually... to add an upholstered headboard, and an all white duvet cover, and the pièce de résistance, a black and white herringbone bolster/lumbar pillow!!! I can see it now.. and it's lovely :)
