Bathroom World

We have entered Bathroom World.  It is a daunting, back breaking place!  My poor husbands entire vacation has been consumed this week by our bathroom!  I feel so sorry for him.  But, I keep reminding him how much money we saved by doing it all by ourselves!!  I still have to paint the walls and cabinets, so a reveal will be coming soon.  Right now, let's look at some beautiful bathrooms.  When I looked at all these pictures, I noticed there is a recurring theme...white.  I can't help it!  I love the look!  Enjoy!

Drool worthy shower curtain

How pretty is this fireplace mantle over the tub?  LOOVVEE IT!!!

Loving the floors!  But no wood for me in a bathroom please!

O.k, I love the mirror.  But seriously!!  I would not like to have a huge view of myself every time I got in and got out of the tub!  Nope!  No thank you!


I have a black metal shelf similar to this one up in the attic.  I think I might get it down!

I hope everyone has a safe and fun New Year's Eve!  God bless your New Year!

A Very Sad Day

I am struck almost speechless and my heart aches for a fellow blogger.  Edie, from Life in Grace, has lost her home due to a fire.  Edie blogs about her faith, family and her beautiful eclectic home.  She just recently finished a major renovation on her kitchen and it was stunning to say the least.  Please say a prayer for Edie and her family.  Everyone escaped with no injures, thank the Lord!  I can't even imagine what she and her family are going thru at this very moment.  They literally lost every possession they own.  The good Lord, I know will provide their monetary needs, as well as their emotional needs.

I have read Edie's blog now for 3 years and I have never met her, but I feel as though I know her and her wonderful family.  I pray for peace more than anything right now.  No words can express how truly sorry I am.

The SampleHouse

Oh, how I love The SampleHouse.  Let me count the ways!!  This is the best little shop EVER!!  I can find the most unique gifts at this store.  My family and friends have been coming here for years.

The displays alone will attract your attention.  I could browse this store for hours!

This whimsical pink creation was mesmerizing!  This would just be perfect in Kailey's room!

I love these sparkly houses! 

Look at this great nativity scene!  So different and unique!

How great would this lamp look in a gameroom?

I fell in love with these felt purses!  Lucky for me my mother was there, and she bought me one for Christmas!!

Loving this Christmas tree skirt!

Little Malone, my niece, was such a good little girl.  Not a peep out of her!

I hope everyone is recovering from all the Christmas yummies.  I know my tummy was on the fritz on Christmas day.  I had been eating such rich foods since about Wednesday, my stomach went in to shock and said NO MORE!! 

Now that I feel better, we have an exciting project going on in my neck of the woods!  We are laying new tile in our master bathroom!!!  Yea!  Here is the lowdown :
New Toilet
Laying tile flooring
Painting the walls
Painting the cabinets
Trimming the mirror with molding (if hubby can get to it)

That's a tall order, and we've never laid tile before!!  We will let you know how this goes for us.  Right now, I am off to bed for a good night's rest.  Sleep tight!

Twas the Night

Are you ready!!!?  We have excited children running around here!  My 12 year old I know will come and check several times tonight to see what Santa has brought.  My 10 year old however, will be out like a light.  Hope you all have a good nights rest and have visions of sugar plums dancing in your head.  Whatever that means!

What's Wrong With this Picture?

O.k, seriously?!!  This is one of the display windows at my favorite mall.  Do I think it is funny?  Yes.  However, I find it (my sister will laugh when I say this) very inappropriate.  Do we have to dress Santa up like that?  At least, use Ms. Claus, not Santa?  I'm just saying!!

Just Some Christmas Loveliness


These photos have been in my photo bucket for a while now and I had to share them with you.  Don't they make you just smile?  I had a marathon baking day at my mother's house today and we got a lot done!  We will have another tomorrow with my sister and mother.  Can't wait!
