Yikes! Stripes!



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 d├ęcor 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. . .

Such a pretty bathroom. I would enjoy soaking in a tub like that with such a pretty view. The mannequins are great pieces and I really like all the stripes. Ticking is one of my favourites. Hope you are enjoying some spring weather in your area. It is still cold here but we had a bit of rain and the snowbanks are receding.

I love your bathroom and how you decorate it. It's always so fresh and pretty. It looks like it's a good sized room too. I don't have space for more than the necessities along with the washer and dryer but I like to decorate the surfaces and walls with a beach and vintage theme. We have lots of snow here still and it won't be gone for a few weeks I think. It's been a very long winter. Enjoy your spring days.

Well...aren't you sweet for mentioning my soaps! I wish I had a larger bathroom like yours. You can do so much with it and it always looks great. You know how small mine is, but I hope to change it up someday.
Farmhouse hugs,

Love your vintage ticking! And love that you keep some of your soap in a blue mason jar, I might have to borrow that idea!
We all had Spring fever so bad on Monday, it was 68 here! of course the next day was too cruel as it was back to 36 with a biting wind.....
At lest we got to enjoy our one day!

There is no such thing as too much ticking in my world. Or, men than take the time to notice that kind of change! It looks wonderful.
