My Grandaddy is on the mend! I haven't heard the latest today, but last report was really good and that he was improving and even coming off the ventilator soon! Woo hoo! Thanks for all your prayers and sweet comments - it means so much!! I will keep you posted.
These next pictures for my "Happy Show-n-Tell" is a little area in our bathroom. Because we only (currently, not forever, please Lord!) have one bathroom that the 4 of us share. I wanted to make the bathroom gender friendly in my color choices and to create both a happy place for the boys bathtimes, and an adult enough place for Nathan and I, and our guest of course, to enjoy without feeling like we were visiting a preschool every time we visited the "loo."
I have a little shelf that sits on the wall above our potty (such a better word than toilet don't you think?) were a gather assorted things that I love. Currently there sits a Dollar Tree candle holder, with 3 candles I found on clearance at Dillards that resemble some ones I feel in love with at Anthropologie but just couldn't bear to pay full price for.
Next is a little drawing of a palm tree that Jeanetta drew for me few years ago when I needed a little extra something for this shelf. The bathroom loosely has a "beach" theme and I thought this was a great touch.
The little tea towel came from Tracy in Juneau right after I was married or engaged- It is said to be very old and I love it dearly, perhaps one of my favorite gifts ever!
The clock is just a functional Wal-Mart or Target purchase, but I loved it's vaguely vintage style and it keeps me relatively on time when getting ready! The picture above the shelf is out of a book of vintage children's illustrations I bought when we first moved into this house.
So now you have seen a little spot in my home that makes me smile.
The Word Vases are from the Target $2.50 bin, I love their simple shape and the fact that they have words on them. I love words on things! In the vases are button flowers I made out of new and vintage buttons. All the vintage buttons are from Nathan's maternal grandmothers collection that I sweet talked my way into owning during one of his parents moves. I love that we have some so beautiful and person, right there to look at every morning. Just a small assembly of small things that have all sorts of memories and stories to go along with them!
Finally, today I am happy because I discovered this little gem of a book! Oh how I wished I had come across it 12 months ago, but oh how I happy to have it now!! This book is practical and encouraging - a good mix of personal stories from successful crafters of all kinds, mixed with good tips and common sense!
