Tub Time Continued...


Last post I share several photos of ET and Baby Girl's bahtroom. I mentioned that there was more to tell about the ladybug are hanging above the potty. So, here it the rest of the story. . .



I found the perfect fabric for ET & Baby Girl's shower curtain. It it had frogs and ladybugs on it! I thought how perfect it would be for a shared boy/girl bathroom! Notice that the ladybugs are not your typical fire engine red color. They are more of a rusty red color. As I shopped for some kind of art or accessories that had ladybugs on it, all I could find where fire engine red lady bugs. The muted green frogs were easy to find. One day Daddy was picking ET & Baby Girl up at the church nursery and he noticed lady bug art made out of the children's thumb prints. So, we stole the idea and made our own ladybug art with a rust colored red paint that matched the shower curtain ladybugs perfectly! One frame has ET and Daddy's thumbprints in it and the other frame has mine and Baby Girl's! It was not only the perfect match for the room, but it was also something meaningful to decorate with and one of a kind! The frames the ladybug art are in were on sale for 12.50 each at Hobby Lobby. The lady bug art...priceless!


Girly Stuff asked me on my last post, how I hid the cord on the lamp sitting between the two sinks on the vanity. I have a friend that shortened the cords on all the lamps in my house that are on counters. They are all shortened just enough to where they can be plugged in with little or not slack left once the lamp is set in its place. Notice the little box that the flower arrangement is in to the right of the lamp. That little box was a souvenir I bought in Playa del Carmen. I bought it specifically to put an arrangement in for their bathroom. I love to be able to buy souvenirs that we will use, enjoy, and be reminded of a special place we visited all at the same time.
