Be sure and visit Beverly of How Sweet The Sound... and all the sweet pink-a-licious blogs....thank you, Beverly for hosting this every single Saturday!

We painted our small cottage style bathroom a few days ago....I am so pleased with the pretty light robins eggs blue. It makes me think of the beach, and so I think of it as my beachy blue bathroom. The mirror I have had for over thirty years....I found it in a quaint antique shop up the coast from San Diego. It got a fresh coat of white paint to match all the crown molding, the wrap around shelf and all the rest of the trim in the bath. Of course we chose the hottest day with the highest humidity to do this! lol! The ceiling is done in the new paper that is embossed to look like tin. I love it! Wall paper on the ceiling in the bathroom, you are thinking? Yes! It does very well and painted is quite sturdy...even with the long hot showers.

The fanciful collectible pin cushion, the pretty sachets and the hanger cover can all by found on my EBAY I hope you will stop by for a visit.

I had a lot of enjoyment doing the silk ribbon embroidery over a piece of vintage crocheted doiley for this clothes cover.........It turned out too pretty to hide in the closet, don't you think?

Hope you all have a safe and fun 4th weekend and thank you for visiting today!

What a delight to have your bath in Robin's Egg Blue...I love that color. Such a spa is time to repaint mine, too. I do believe I might wait for fall, tho.
Happy Pink Sat and 4th of July.
I am signing up to follow you! :)

Hi Jil. I love your blog and all the pretty pinks and vintage. How pretty is that clothes cover up you made. I wouldn't be able to keep in the closet either.

Happy 4th of July and may we have many more to celebrate our FREEDOM and to be able to speak freely. I love your card. I love the looks of your paint and know it looks wonderful. You do the most beautiful pincushions and I love your hanger covers and the fact you embroidered the roses and leaves. It gives it a very special touch. Happy pink saturday and happy every saturday,....Pauline

Very lovely hand work and such a pretty bathroom, too. I'm interested in your wallpapered-tin ceiling. I just read a post a few days ago about bead board wallpaper, and it looked good, too. We have real bead board on two bathroom celings, but I am interested in possibly doing another celing in wallpaper. Glad to know you like it.

Happy Pink Saturday Fourth!

Wow - your creations are beautiful! I love the pin cushions and that ribbonwork is beautiful! Love your bathroom. Like Leslie, I am a Michigander - or at least was for 30 years. I have a great fondness for my home state. Happy Pink Saturday!

Susie Jefferson said...

Love the bathroom, and I like the sound of that paper.

The pin cushions etc - far too pretty to use, but they look gorgeous.

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy 4th July (being from the UK, I hadn't realised it was Independence Day...).

She'sSewPretty said...

Your creations are so pretty! And I love your blue bath. I have a mirror just like yours that I have yet to paint. Maybe you've inspired me!
Have a wonderful weekend!
