Corners of my Home

Thank you for the comments on my last post...it's so nice to have someone to share these things with! Thank you Elizabeth, Mrs Scott, and Mrs Staggs for pointing me in the right direction to find a tube turning tool...the next time I get to Joann's I will be sure to check it out.
Today's corner is in the master bath. It's kind of hard to tell because of the lighting, but it's painted Deep Linen G22, one of Martha's Everyday Colors. Most everything else is white except the vintage mirror frame, which I think I am going to paint white. To the right of the sink are some tag sale finds used to hold soap...

I found this little wall cabinet at a flea market in Ohio...it even had the cute little glass knob...

the little bowl on top holds soap...a star fish from Florida...

...this old ironstone pitcher holds toothbrushes and toothpaste...

...and this old commode is handy for hiding unmentionables...

As I went to start this post I noticed it is my 100th post, aaaand as I'm always looking for a good excuse for a give-away, I can't let the opportunity pass by. Anyone who leaves a comment to this post will automatically be entered in a drawing for a little zippered pouch, similar to the one I sent Clarice, here. This pouch is yet unmade so I'm not sure what the fabric will be ~ a pleasant surprise I hope!

  1. Congratulations on your 100th post !!! I love your blog, keep them coming. I love your bathroom too. You know I really like the touch of gold in the mirror. It adds something unexpected to the room. I always like to have one thing that sort of does not match. Kind of like a small punch to a room. Well that is my opinion (like you asked ;-)

  7. I agree with Clarice--I like the gold framed mirror. I'd keep as is. And, as always, your garage sale finds are inspiring me to get out there this weekend!

  8. Debbie, how exciting, your 100th post. Congratulations! I have enjoyed reading each and everyone. I love your bathroom, it is very peaceful looking. I love everything you have in your bathroom but I am most partial to the little cabinet above the toilet!

    And I love the little commode. My mother has a large antique pitcher and bowl set that are very similar, and I've always loved them.

    Congratulations on your 100th post. I recently "discovered" your blog, and I love to check in and see your lovely garden and home, and your sewing projects are inspiring. I agree with the other ladies about the gold mirror; I think it looks just right.

  11. I love the bathroom - so fresh and light. I like all of your neat finds that you've used throughout. I also keep a little covered commode pot (mine is enamelware). I'm joining the chant to keep the mirror gold, though! I've really been enjoying your blog.

    Happy 100th post Debbie! I really like your bathroom which reminds me a little of my own -- mine has very pale yellow walls and everything else is whites. I really like your gold mirror. It adds a "touch of class" and interest to the bath.

  16. I truly enjoyed the pictures of your master bathroom. Especially the ingenius way the counter/vanity was fit. That way you had more useable space, plus a space for your wastebasket. Very creative! Thanks for sharing.

  21. Your bathroom is charming. I love all the little special touches you've added. As soon as I saw the picture I thought the gold edged mirror looked so perfect there. And then I read that you were thinking of painting it white. So, let me add my vote for keeping it gold ;)

  22. So many charming touches Debbie. I really enjoyed seeing them.
    Your bathroom is very pretty. Love that little wall cabinet and the bowl. I use a couple of pieces of old dishes in my bathroom. Actually I use old china and things all over the house! We like so many of the same things. Have you seen the latest issue (Sept)of Country Living (USA)? Lot's of really pretty rooms and ideas in this issue.

  23. What a lovely bathroom, you must feel special when you go in there. I especially like the little wall cabinet, I can just imagine it in my bathroom.I've just noticed this is another give away post. Please don't put my name in it as I already have a beautiful gift from you.

  24. Congrats on your 100th post!!! I found your blog some time ago and check in regularly - you are such an inspiration!

    Oh, and I don´t think you should paint the golden frame white - I do like the way it breaks off from everything else!

  27. Ahh I was good and patient and I have been rewarded with a spectacular Debbie's Corners. :)
    I love the things you use to hold the bathroom odds and ends. I do a little of that also but you gave me lots of other ideas. I love the white on white on linen. Really lovely.

  28. Your powder room looks beautiful... and I think the gold framed mirror adds an elegant touch. I've been reading for a couple of months now but I don't think I've ever commented. You have wonderful decorating ideas. Thanks for taking the time to post.

    100 posts...That's amazing. I started a blog and deleted it as I am too lazy to keep up with it and I am too busy reading other great blogs like yours to deal with one of my own. I love that little shelf that you found in Ohio (which is where I am) and I am totally jealous. Enjoy vacation.
