It is Saturday! My daisies in the flower bed are now in full bloom. Their little faces greet me
each time I walk out the back door.
Our youngest daughter, husband, and little guy headed back to the midwest, after
spending a week here. We had so much fun!
I miss this little guy's peanut butter covered face. I miss his laughter and his tender heart.
But, distance is a part of our lives at this point, and I have to just appreciate the times
that we do have together...right?
It helps me to have a project to focus on, and this was a simple one that I went for.
Our small powder room received a new coat of paint a few weeks ago. The one wall needed
an updated look. I took one of the rose photos that I had taken of my rose bloom,
and had it enlarged to a poster size, at Costco. The price...$ 6.00, and done in an hour.
I framed it in a dark wood frame that I purchased months ago, at a going out of business
I like the way it makes the wall "pop".
The lamp above the mirror is similar to one at my grandma's house, years ago. It is 15 years
since we moved to this home, and like always, tastes change. Today, I would choose another
design for a lamp, but I still like the way the cut glass offers a soft lighting in the room.
I often place a few fresh flowers in the small vase, on the commode. Flowers always
add to the décor of any room, in my estimation. I also keep a bottle of room fragrance
spray in the powder room, along with extra hand towels.
A year of so, I purchased this pretty container of hand soap at Marshall's Store. I
like how it's flowers and colors tie in with this room, and so I keep refilling it with
more hand soap. I think designers do a great job in creating attractive containers for soap.
By the sink, above the light switch, I hung this faux wreath, on a rose hook that
my daughter gave to me, along with a tiny glass vase, tied with jute. Of course,
I had to place a rose in the vase. That is it. Just a few new touches.
The beauty of the rose though, by itself, is by far the best of all décor I could possibly
add to any room.
Heavy rains are due here all afternoon and evening. With the warm temperatures and the
abundance of rain that we have had lately, I am sure I will be able to keep a rose in the
hanging vase all summer long.
Thanks so much for stopping here. I am not sure why you do, but I sure do appreciate
