Ready for Guests

Sewing is still in progress for the Special Olympics, so I thought I’d share how I’ve organized our guest bathroom. Who knows when you might want to visit me?

There’s not a window in the guest bathroom upstairs, but I still think it has lots of lovely soft light. There’s nothing extraordinarily fancy about this bath; however, it feels quiet and calm to me.

I stenciled very simple fern leaves on each cabinet door.

On one end of the countertop by the tub and shower are bottles of bubble bath, hand soap, and lotion that I’ve made using herbal recipes.

Underneath one of the sinks, the cabinet holds everything imaginable a guest might need in the form of toiletries and other amenities—from new toothbrushes and toothpaste to cotton balls and even a rolling massager.

On one side of the cabinet under the other sink are towels and washcloths, including some I’ve knitted.

I printed one of my husband’s photographs on canvas of golden Aspen leaves and framed it for the wall over the towel rack.

Want to come visit me? Your bathroom is ready for you.

Oh my goodness. I would dearly love to come visit you! You are so thoughtful in every area of life, I bet everyone who knows you just loves you. BTW, I mean to comment on your tax organization - it is great! I am going to show it to my husband. You are welcome to come visit us in Wisconsin though we have no guest bedroom or bath. :-(

Oh. My. How beautifully enticing Ms. Moon! I'd love to come visit -- not only for your beautiful bathroom, but to view your fabulous organization skills in real life. Your tax files are amazing -- a sweet contrast to my pile of junk!

I should have visited that bathroom this week! We ran around all week and I didn't see you. We found a nice guitar for Buddy Budderson's 18th birthday on Speedway Blvd... I'm quite excited about it! Next time - until then,

Miss Saucy

When do you want me to arrive?
It is so appealling, but I wouldn't want to touch anything and mess it up. I'm sure I would just sit there and admire everything.
Love the fern pattern on everything.
Just beautiful June......

You may have opened Pandora's Box.
You'll have company lined up down the sidewalk. They'll have to take-a-number.

We do have to get together the next time we go to Phoenix.

Love the detail with your guest amenities.

Check my blog. Just got it up.
