It seems like it took forever!! The pictures' color is off. I can't seem to figure out why, but after having a behemoth amount of "issues" with my camera.... I will take what I can get. There are still things I want to do in there... like the floor and change out the vanity top, but I am not in any major hurry for that. I would much prefer to work on our bedroom and, of course, the kitchen. Here are some of the pictures we took. It is a miniscule bathroom, so the pictures were a little hard to take, but here they are!! Now if only I could get the almost youngest boy to stop "missing" the toilet.....

I found ideas in almost every blog I read. Rhoda's gave me the idea of hanging something above the shower. Obvious? Yes. However, sometimes the most obvious thing are the ones that I miss.... I know these are almost sad compared to some of the others I have found on here. However, I would just like to point out that... this is my house! As much as I would love to have some of the houses others live in, I am happy with my tiny little house and enjoy making it look far better than when we moved here. Seriously, when we first moved here, the carpet was black and had some sort of goo that would make your shoes stick. Ewww. So, anytime I get something else done, I am completely exhilarated. Especially when you consider that I have 5 kids, I am amazed that I get anything done... EVER!! Yeah for me!! So remember, even if what you are working on isn't totally fancy or expensive or even totally creative or original, if it makes you happy... that is what matters!! Someday I may be as good as some of these women... maybe not. But I know I will always love my house, because it is our home. No matter what, my kids will look back on our house and remember how much time I spent trying to make it more colorful and pretty for them. They may even ask me for advice on decorating some day... hahaha!!! :)

    Now watch it. don't go downgrading your house. You have a beautiful cottage and those are so in style right now. You would be amazed at how many decorating books feature little cottages just like yours. Your bath turned out beautiful and light and cottagey. My favorite!

    Kelly, I love your bath. So much so that I'm wondering if we were separated at birth?! Here's a run down of my favorite parts... the fleur-de-lis towel holders ( I heart fleur-de-lis & I think it's fabulous how you hung them ), the wall color ( what color is it? ), the bird pics ( i fell in love with similar ones at hobby lobby ) and the yellow accents, because yellow is my favorite color! I'm planning to do some cosmetic changes in my small master bath. I might have to bookmark yours for inspiration. So, congrats to ya sister for a job well done!!! :>

    I think your bathroom is just gorgeous. I don't really have a decorating gene at all. Love the color blue and the french touches. Thanks for stopping by my blog!

    Your bathroom came out great looking and I think that considering you have 5 kids it's amazing you get anything non essential done! Very pretty!
