The Powder Room

The Powder Room

Thought I would share a few pictures of our powder room with you.

The handsome man in the gold oval frame is my paternal grandfather. Who says it is inappropriate to put family pics in the loo?

I have a small collection of beaded purses, not nearly as many as my dear friend Lorena!


I purchased these little button-top baby shoes at an antiques shop in Salado many years ago. The decopauged print was a garage sale find.


My maternal grandmother crocheted the doily & tabletopper that I draped across the towel bar. The heart holds an instant ancestor & a vintage Gibson Girl post card.


My sweet friend Celeste painted the precious little angel tealite holder.


One of my all-time favorite finds, a handpainted plate with a Victorian couple on it.


More angels ~ the oval angel soap is a gift from my sweet friend, Vickie.

My daughter gifted me with the sweet little shelf & teddy bear. I added a tattered heart.

A special tea cup print & Victorian boot print.

An angel crafted by my sister-in-law from a lacy Battenburg napkin.


Click to read the sentiments.

A cross-stitched guest towel on a lacy doily.

A bunny at the base of the sink.


Hugs,
