New bathroom!

Over a month ago, I began to work on re-doing our bathroom. For years...nearly twenty I believe....the bath has been decorated with a painted latice work and climbing roses on a beige background. I went for a BIG change and painted it a Laura Ashley color, Apple Green#3, and bright gloss white. The handles on all the cabinets and drawers were removed and replaced with glass knobs I purchased on a recent trip to Snohomish, Washington. The bird hooks and modified toilet paper holder came from Capitola, CA., two years ago. I've been hanging on to them with this project in mind....that's how long I've been pondering this re-do!!
Since my brain doesn't work in a grid pattern ;), my wonderful "measure twice, cut once" hubby, laid the new peel and stick tile for me....thank you honey!! It looks great...don't you think?? So nice and fresh!

Loveseat that I love.....

Ah...loveseat that I love....let me count the ways :)

1.Thou art lovely to look upon.

2. Thou art the correct that burgundy plushness.

3. Thy pillows and cushions are soft and lush, but supportive due to your 56 pocket, ultra high coil density, roboticaly placed, ultrasonically welded seating.

4. Thy size is diminutive, yet adequate, just long enough for me to lounge with feet elevated....oh, the thought of it!

5. Thou art curved and rolled in precisely all the right places...sigh.

6. And lastly, though certainly not least.....the one thing that made me love thee at first sight, ah, thinking of it makes my heart pitter patter......... thou wast, ahem, half price!
