Know what I like the most about our bath? . .It's so versatile. . .It can be dressed up or dressed down. . .It can be made plain and simple or shabby chic frilly. . .It can easily change with the seasons. . .or change every week for that matter. . .With a large room, strategic placement of "necessaries", and a background that doesn't interfere with most themes, the bath lends itself to any number of farmhouse styles. . .rustic. . .simple. . .chic. . .country. . .
It was by way of a subtle suggestion that I recently changed the bath. . .again. . .It's all the Honey's fault. . .(grin). . .At the time I began gathering ticking for the living room, I also pulled out anything that had stripes. . .mainly to find out how big a stash I had. . .The piles ended up being stacked in the bath. . .in various places. . .
"Hey. . .That looks good in there" said the Honey one morning.
"I'm collecting for the living room." . . .I was half listening.
"Oh. . .Okay. But I like it" and he was off to begin his day.
About five minutes later, it dawned on me what he said. . .more so that he noticed at all. . .I went to look for myself. . .began pulling a few items from the piles. . .and Voila!!! . .A new look. . .
Ticking and stripes are a huge decorating statement this Spring. . .Around here it's very hard to find vintage ticking. . .but there's plenty new ticking to be found at fabric stores. . .I'm really glad the Honey made the suggestion. . .
While we're in the bath. . .did you see the post at OUR OLD COUNTRY STORE about OLD TIME FARMHOUSE all natural soaps? . .I used them in the bath décor this winter. . .The room smelled fresh and clean. . .but not over-powering. . .My skin loved them, too. . .You know. . .Mother's Day is coming up. . .These soaps in a basket would make a great gift. . .(hint hint). . .I get no compensation for any sales. . .Only wanted to pass along a true discovery. . .
I certainly hope Spring is coming your way. . .The sun is finally out here and the fields are drying up. . .Won't be long before I venture outdoors to play in the dirt. . .I'm definitely getting a touch of Spring fever. . .Happens every year about this time. . .
