Adendum to previous post....

I forgot a couple pictures of my bathroom in my previous post. I'm showing them only because I love, love, love old pictures. I'm not the kind of person to brag about what I have, I just thought you'd like to see them.

This one hangs over the tub. If you enlarge it you can see the bees buzzing around. The cup and saucer were my Great Grandma Balsley's and are very fine, translucent china. My grandsons have taken many baths in the bath tub and have always been very careful. Children will always live up to your expectations, I always say. *Golly! Looking at the picture, maybe there is some room on that wall to hang some more things. Hmmmmmm!!!!!

It's not a jetted tub, but big enough to draw a bubble bath, have a cup of tea, read a book and turn into a prune! My favorite thing to do when I've been working in the yard all day and I hurt all over.

Here's another picture of my bathroom counter. See the picture of the roses? I just love it. I feel so fortunate when I can find treasures like that. Especially when they don't cost much. The little silver clock was a gift from Sweety when I had surgery a few years back.

The plates are Bessie Pease Guttman prints. I collected them years ago. One of them looks like my daughter, Dory, did when she was little. I always told her that they were hers when she had a little girl. Two boys later I still have them!

One other thing I didn't show is the medicine cabinet. Standard track house medicine cabinet and I'd like to replace it one day. Hanging on it is a note our son left us years and years ago when he had been visiting. It just says, "Mom and Dad, I love you, Aaron" It's just a small piece of paper but I never, never take it down. He's deployed right now and it is a constant reminder to me that I have such a great son!

Thanks for visiting and have a wonderful and blessed week!

That Aaron...so sweet he is!

Jean, I am so glad you are sharing your beautiful home! Your collection of pictures are gorgeous! Love the bee one. Is that the one you bought at the estate sale?

BTW, you are going to have to hide the scottie piece in your previous post....it may get stuck in my purse next time I am over.


....the sun is coming out! yeh!!!!

Love all the artwork you have in your bathroom. My large tub mainly gets used by our grand children when they visit. I would also keep the note up probably until the end of time.

I love seeing your beautiful pictures Ms. Jean, and I don't take it as bragging at all. And how fun that you have your note -- what a treasure!
