~A Little Bathroom Tweaking~

I have been doing a little tweaking in the master bathroom this week. You know how I like to change things up from time to time. Who am I kidding??? I like to change things up all the time! = ) Take a look at what I have done.

The bathroom is quite large so, I added an old rocking chair that was in the barn. I placed a "sampler" pillow on the chair. I also turned the basket that was on the cabinet on its side and used it as a display area.

I added some old books and placed a candle on the books to give the display some warmth. I then added a sampler. In front of the sampler is an ironstone oval platter with some homespun towels folded up and placed on the platter. Then, in the middle, I added a wooden saltbox house.

Here is a closer picture of the display. I really like how it turned out.

On the vanity I placed three brown beehive crocks in the center and placed a sampler in front of the middle crock. On each side of the sink I filled two crock bowls with rolled up towels.

So, What do you think?

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope that you will continue to come back as often as you can. Do not forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook. I would love for you to stop by there too.

That giant basket gathering is very inspirational! I have to keep my eye out for one at the thrift shop. You have it done up so nicely! I love electric candles inside things. And those little cloths on a plate are such a thoughtful accent. Beautiful. Thanks for sharing.
