Sunday Scramble/Easter Ponderings, and New Bathroom

Today was Easter Sunday, and what a glorious day it was! I attended church where I watched my oldest son Sean in the Easter drama, and what a proud mama I was to hear him play a guitar solo and sing a solo that gave me goosebumps! Afterward, several people came up to tell me how good they thought he did. Later, my brother joined my sons and I for an Easter dinner, but more about that on Thursday! Here is a sneak preview of something on my Easter tablescape.

Even though it's Easter, it's still Sunday Scramble, the brainchild of Justine at Stupid is as Sister Does. This is where I can present a mish-mash of a post including different subjects.

My first part of this is to show you my new bathroom. I am almost finished decorating my new place, and am happy to say that except for the jumble of boxes and stuff in my garage, the rest of my home does not look like we just moved in, but looks nice and settled in.

I've got to say, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE having a bathroom off my bedroom and all to myself! Since I share a home with two sons (even the dog is a boy), I wanted a very feminine and girly place to call my own. Everything I have in my bathroom is something I already had. I love to put things together in a different manner than I had them before! Here is the result:

Since there are doors on my shower, I didn't need a shower curtain, but the glass doors are so cold looking, so to soften it up, I hung up some lace curtains and strung silk flowers over the top. Now I know that decorators hate fake flowers, but I sure do love those little faux posies!

I decided to dress up my little pink Goodwill basket by stringing silk flowers through the handle and adding a lace doily. Seems a lot of fuss for a little basket that holds TP, but I love it.

To the side of the shower, I have a nice cubby area to hold all my potions and lotions. This bathroom is packed with storage! I am not showing it here, but I also have a linen closet in here.

Across from the "throne" hangs this picture of a beautiful porch. This is the porch of my dreams, and when I have time to "sit," I just love looking at this and pretending I am on the porch.

Below that is a wicker plant stand. I will probably put some different flowers in there eventually.

I am so happy to have a decent sized counter top. I placed a cucumber-melon candle in the corner. On top of that is what is actually a night light, but I like it on the candle. A vintage pink glass is there for water. I've had that guest towel forever.

For my hand towel, I finally put this little floral hook that I got at Goodwill a couple years ago into service.

On the other side of the counter, I have plenty of room for all my beauty products. See, I really do use all of the Tahitian Noni TePoema facial products!

That's all that I have to show you of my bathroom.

Remember this shell sculpture in my boys' bathroom? My oldest said that he really likes it because it reminds him of pooh coiled in the toilet and it serves as inspiration. Whatever! Boys!

When I first showed pics of my new place, I didn't have a good pick of my patio. I just love this space! My fire pit and chairs and grill all fit with plenty of room left over.

There are a few perennials popping up like these pretty daffodils...

...and these lovely hyacinth. I can't wait to plant some more flowers and make this beautiful!

Come back on Thursday for Tablescape Thursday!

Hi Kady! Oh, you've done. Your bathroom is so darling! I'm so proud for you.
Didn't know your son was a musician playing and singing. I know you must have been so proud of him!
Just like a guy with that 'poop' remark! I've a son too! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh I so agree, to have a bathroom to yourself is such a thrill and a delight, especially right off the bedroom. It looks beautiful, and you have done a fabulous job decorating it. Your patio is wonderful. Such a nice area to sit out and relas. Glad you are getting all settled. Hope you had a Happy Easter. Hugs, Marty

Love your bathroom!! Gotta say though that that lovely porch picture is my fav of the whole room. OHH to DayDream of a place like that. Now about that POO... I've seen this and wanted one for my new cottage room I'm working on, Now I'm certain I'll look at it quite differently. LOL Only a boy could come up with that.. I remember my two coming up with so many mind bending remarks.. Aren't they a joy to raise:)
