A Few Bathroom Additions


I am still working on my red,black, and white guest bathroom. I already showed you the Paris calendar prints I framed and hung in there. I hotglued some fabric to a placemat and put in on the countertop to sit things on. I have had the Paris hot balloon for awhile. I bought the wooden bunny at a yard sale and the spindle base at Goodwill. The spindle was the body of a patriotic angel painted red, white, and blue with stars on it. I painted it black and screwed the bunny to the top. I love how it turned out!!! Kind of looks like a bunny weathervane. I ordered the mongrammed shower curtain from Ballards Designs. I absolutely love their stuff! I have only ordered two things from them. I like to look at their catalog and get ideas and try to think of ways to copy their stuff in a cheap way.

We had a pretty busy weekend. My husband is still putting in new windows in our house. He did the living room, dining room, and office this weekend. He only has two rooms to go. It is so nice to have new windows - no mildew and no paint flaking off! I am so glad we finally decided to do it. Hope y'all have a great Monday!

I love the monogrammed shower curtain. Our "guest" bath is a host to frogs and dragonflies. When the kiddos grow up, I'm hoping to change to something like what you've done. Beautiful!

Very nice! We have all new windows too. Most of them were put in last year, and we finished them up this year. Makes you feel really good about saving energy, and they look so nice!

I am so wanting new windows but we have 16 windows in our 110 year old house. 12 that are 6 feet tall. I don't want to begin to think about the price of them. Your shower curtain is so cute!

I love the rabbit and the damask. And I always love a monogram!

I love Ballard too. Wish I could afford their stuff! I didn't make the Dream thing. I bought it at Marshalls on clearance and hung it over our bed. Wouldn't be hard to make though. Mimi

Hi Angie,
I really like what you are doing in your bathroom. Everything ties together so nicely! Love the bunny! I have bunnies all over my house too! I just found out today that bunny toile is coming in brown now...they are discontinuing the green! I.Love.Brown. Another color I am trying to incorporate! :o) When my office is painted brown, it will sure add the touch I am aiming for.
Have a wonderful day!
Sincerely ~ Tricia Anne
