the work bench is sizzlin' ... 
if you follow along on facebook,
or pinterest 
that's been my new buzz phrase as of late.
yesterday, this little number rolled off the
workbench ...
can you say
'my new favorite'?

old mirror frame was painted and stained ...
mirror ... I oxidized, gunk-ed up and then
a stencil was applied.

one of my pin boards 
  this old farm house
has only one little ole' bathroom ...
I sit and dream some of my evenings away
swooning over these luxurious
sites, offering tubs and sinks that
literally can make one drool!

talk to me
are you a bath kind of gal?

nothing better on a cold winter's night
than a tub full of bubbles in the
salle de bains

hope your weekend is
just keen!

be inspired

It's beautiful, my friend. I'm more of a shower kinda girl, but a good soak with candles sounds wonderful.

We have to get SueAnn's address! ;-). My kingdom for a hot tub, especially after shoveling snow. Love the mirror.

Joy, this is so beautiful! I love the distressing! Yes, I am a bath girl, bubbles, please! Only, our master bath only has a shower. Bummer. There is a tub in the bathroom that my daughter and grandkids use, but I normally don't go in there - it isn't pretty! I'd love to have a big soaking tub! Hugs, Leena

We also have only one in a 1940 cottage that was built to house workers for an army aminition plant. We recently downsized to this little bungolow and we are loving it ...and we do have an old huge tub. We are remodeling so I'm collecting photos to share soon on my neglected blog. You are truly a inspiration to me, God bless!

A beautiful reflection of crusty beauty, love taking hot relaxing baths, candles lit, music, and lots of inspiration running through my head. Your mirror will do just that, it will inspire the purchaser to relax in a bath while admiring the French brocante piece that graces beauty in there private space.

Inspiring piece joy, another one of your creations to love.

Happy February month of hugs, hearts, and kisses.

100% baths. I have to use the kids' bathroom, because the master only has a shower. You've inspired me with this one!
