Tying up loose ends

Hello Again!

2012 has some big changes on the horizon, so with that, for me, comes organization and de-cluttering home, closet and my mind.

I started and finished some projects that I have been putting off for quite a while. Earlier this winter I painted my bathroom, which had been in dire need of paint since we had a little fire over a year ago. It was a lavender color before, but now, a pinky peach! It's called "Friendship", and I love it. It came out just the way I wanted it too. I think it matches my original buttercup with gold fleck original 50's tile nicely. I found this great 60's peach wicker shelf.

 These adorable chalkware poodles dated 1957 are also a new addition to the bathroom.

I also found earlier this summer these two spaghetti poodle figurines at a thrift store, one is a planter. That sad little plant is hanging on for dear life. The other was just to cute and tiny to pass up.

I never had any intention of having it a poodle themed bathroom, but I guess it just worked out that way.
There are still some improvements that I would like to make, but I like to do things in steps when I have extra money. That way I buy things I really like, rather then things that will work in a pinch.


  1. Poodles are good for a bathroom quite unexpected. I have mermaids which I love but well not unexpected at all..... Love it.

  2. What a lovely bathroom. This looks like my best friends dream (she is obsessed with poodles)! I would love to see some other rooms in your house.
