Cottage Style Magazine is coming

I wanted to share my excitement, Cottage Style Magazine is coming to shoot our house in a few weeks. I can’t wait!
When Better Homes and Gardens was here last June, I had so much fun watching them behind the scenes (p.s. I heard our kitchen may be in the July issues of BH&G).
Of course, I have a ton of stuff to do, but it’s fun stuff.

For the Love of Jadite Green

Probably my second favorite color in the world is jadite green, I just love it and I think it’s the serene quality it has.
Here are a few examples of the color and the glassware.

Martha Stewart
Paula Dean

I would love to have a collection of Jadite milk glass, who knows maybe one day, but for now I’m just happy using the paint color.

Dream Baths

I hope everyone had a great holiday. It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, but I took a short break to focus on my three ETSY stores.
Most of you know that we have a 1970’s ranch home and it’s pretty much done as far as renovations and decorating goes, except the main bathroom.
This is the hall/main bathroom that guests and myself use and let me tell you it isn't pretty, quite ugly in fact. 
I’ll show the before pictures once we start on the renovation, which I hope will start within the next few months, but I may get vetoed on the starting time.
It’s a typical small bath, so I’m limited on size but that doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty, right?
If I had an unlimited budget meaning I just won the lottery, here are some great baths I would love to have.

Can you tell I love a freestanding tub?
Here are a few choices for my bath.

I love this tub, it’s in my price range and it’s a jetted tub!
cute toilet
who would think a toilet could be cute, but this I think is, I love the molding around the base.

I really want a marble tile floor but I may opt for ceramic if the price isn’t right.
I’m thinking beadboard  for the walls like I did in the dining room and we have a vintage sideboard that my brother gave us, that we will be converting into a sink vanity.
I can’t wait to take a soak in that tub!
