Dear John...

I've decided to take you on a bit of a tour of the little farm house. Today the bathroom, our dear john. Please excuse my play on words. Let's blame it on stress.

When we put a contract on this house we heard a lot of grumblings about the fact that it only had one bathroom. Of course we'd prefer another one. Who wouldn't? But I love my little bathroom. It has hardwood floors just like the rest of the house. The color scheme is a sort of sage green with brown accents. Oh, and here you can see the original old doors that are throughout the entire house, along with the old knobs.

A little touch of Fall. Mom brought me these on Saturday. I believe they came from Dollar General.

Here is the new print that I bought at Goodwill last week for $3. I grabbed it because I liked the frame, but then I realized it was a good fit for this room.

Here is the old attic door. I always see these old openings and don't know how anyone ever fit. Thank goodness we now have a bigger door with a pull down ladder in the hallway. The metal adornment is another old Goodwill find- $1.25.

I wish I was in there right now taking a relaxing bubble bath! Well, that is something to look forward to today.

That is such a cute bathroom! I love the way you decorate and I wish I had a thrift store where I could find stuff like that. I never find really good finds but then again maybe I wasn't looking the way you do.

Yeah, yes, oui, si senor...send me any and all fabric scraps...I am addicted you know...like a crack fiend. LOL...bag for you for doing so!!! I may include some Lindt chocolate truffles for your trouble too!

Have a great day.

You have SUCH a great eye Kim! I love the little lamp on the back of the toilet seat too! And you just inspired me to look forward to a nice long soak this evening too. It's a rainy day in Portland today--just the kind of day for it!

Are those GLASS doorknobs?? To die for.

Did you make your valance? It's absolutely beautiful.

We only have one bathroom. It's tough sometimes, but we make do.

I love your bathroom! Our home is very old and I still love things like glass doorknobs and wood floors, old tile and the little bits and pieces you find of the past like attic openings. My bath has a "fuse" box in it and a very old gas heater. I love it!

Glad you shared your John with us!

Love your bathroom! I had to laugh when I saw the Cetaphil lotion...I have the same bottle on the table behind me!

You did a great job decorating! Hope your day is great!
