Sprucing things up! Part II Master Bath

We are really sprucing things up here at the blue cottage.... Bet you are wondering why? 

Fall is a time of renewal.... Doing way with the old things in the past for exchange for something new that's more exciting!!   

Our master bath was in need of a paint job. We recently painted the master bedroom here and here so I am still in the process of finishing the master bath and sprucing things up a bit. 

The last time the bathroom had a fresh coat of paint was in 2008 when we were on the Home & Garden Tour... we were also featured in Creative Home shortly after click here to see post... 

If you look at this post I may not go back with so much stuff on the walls- maybe enjoy the paint and the simplicity for a minute or two....  

Here is where I am as of tonight..... 

Loving the freshly painted walls above the bath... I did have picture frames and had my collection of vintage razors hanging in the frames... enjoying simple now...

Thinking of add new bathroom lights across the top of the vanity... Need more of a statement have my eye on a new fixture!

These cabinets were custom built off site in pieces and brought in ... love the crystal knobs.. 

I love beadboard, concrete garden angel is my fav!!  This display is really not worked yet.. bear with me... maybe next week!!

Addicted to vintage apothecary jars and sweet shelves!  

Addicted to chandeliers, I love bling!! You knew that.... if you follow my blog... 

 A magazine rack from goodwill few years back... still love it (looks like i may need to dust!) 

Simply done... my favorite colors... black and white!!

for lots and lots of posts on the blue cottage go here!! 

Thanks for stopping by - share your thoughts!

Sprucing things up!

We have had these white cottage lanterns since the day we moved in 9 years ago..  

I was looking for something carriage style... wanted a brushed pewter finish so I would not have to change out the door hardware. 

Ya like?  Purchased at Lowe's.. they have plenty more for you!!

This afternoon I will be packing up and heading down to East Texas to attend the high school Homecoming Game where my daughter is teaching and my sweet GRANDson is attending middle school. If you all follow my blog you know I have been heartbroken, in the adjustment period without them here in town.  

I miss the daily memories, Thursday night Mimi, laughter, their hugs, the way they call my name "MIMI"... 

See why I miss them? 

Holler back tomorrow!

Parent weekend was great... Took tons of pictures of son Jonathan and friends! We had a blast hanging out at his apartment eating pizza watching football, touring the engineering department, learning all about the SURF grant he is writing and attending the game last night.. HOGS vs Troy! WOO PIG SOOIE!  

LOML and I did have a second to enjoy Lake Fort Smith where we parked the gypsy trailer.. All the other lots were super crowded, we opted for bit more relaxing retreat.  Cool nights, cool mornings perfect place for your first cup of coffee!  We did enjoy a heavy thunderstorm last night, first time we have been in a storm in the trailer...  


beautiful pavillion.. this is where we will have Jonathan's graduation party -- HOG '13! 


Calm water 

Glad to be home!!!
