A Little Bit of Blue

Actually ... more than just a little bit ... of blue
When we moved back home after retiring and in this house, I wanted a County look and blue was my love. Not so true anymore, but this, I have to live with.  I also thought every wall needed wallpaper.

The antique painting of pink roses came from an Estate Sale many years ago. 

Reflections in a 36" round mirror that belonged to my Mom and Dad, also, thrifted.  It was used as a platter for my wedding cake because my brother, the baker, could not find anything else big enough.  He made a cake into an alter, including an isle for the eleven wedding party figures. It had little bowls of flowers on each side of the alter with little birds sitting around the bowl. 

Could the sparkles around the lights be magic angel dust ?
      Information about the oak mantel shelf  is written below.

Everything that you are seeing came for an Estate Sale, garage sale or a Thrift store. 

This lamp with fringed shade, is our night light for this master bathroom. This is the surround area of the built-in bathtub. 

This started out to be an Easter post, but this new computer has my editing program messed up, so much delay. 

Hope you had a happy Easter though. 

Some of the prisms have hand-painted, one-stroke roses, bought off eBay from the artist. 

The mantel shelf is off a sideboard and I moved it around all over the U.S. forever, storing it under the bed. Yep, it is big.  Finally, back home, our son made it into a mantel self, using fragments from a Church podium for the brackets, also collected and moved around for years. 
(can't really see them in the photos.)

Hope you enjoyed being in our master bathroom.

Thanks for stopping by.
Wishing you many Blessings.

  1. I love your round mirror and chandelier. I too had a lot of country blue but not wallpaper. But my steel siding is Wedgwood blue. I love your shelf vignette too.

  2. I don't blame you for not wanting to remove the wallpaper. When we bought our house we had 5 rooms of it to get rid of. You can always paint over it.

  3. I think I had that same wallpaper, or very close to it, in my dining room at one time. Every bit of that room is filled with interesting, pretty things. Thanks for sharing!

  4. I am so glad you are back! Blue wallpaper and all - I had this same wallpaper in several shades of blue. I have vanquished it in all but my husband's study. Love the bird lamp and the other treasures. I hope you have some great photos of that wedding cake.

  5. As bloggers I suppose it's a good thing that our tastes change over time, but when it comes to wallpaper - I so regret some of the wallpapers that I have installed in my life that I will (hopefully) never go there again!! lol

    You have such lovely pieces - that mirror is particularly beautiful! Thank you for the tour!

    Have a happy week!


  6. Now, I think that blue wallpaper is beautiful...Wallpaper and I don't get along very goes up GOOD...but comes down in jibblets...
