Quick Bathroom Update

When I shared our Valentine’s Day scavenger hunt,  did you see the two empty glass vases on the bathroom wall?

Those vases have been hanging on that wall ever since the failed attempt to use them in the kitchen last September.  And can you believe it, they hung on this bathroom wall for the last 6 months with never a flower in them??Empty no more, and it’s about damn time.  I popped some colorful and generous stems of Alstromeria into them before Friday’s dinner party.


I love the simple teardrop shape of these CB2 Teardrop vases, and their small size makes it easy to add them to an otherwise useless wall.   And isn’t it great how a simple handful of stems adds so much color and life to a previously boring wall?  Even better, I get to change this “art” up every few weeks.  If I grab greenery from my yard, it doesn’t have to cost a thing!

And finally, it’s like a two-for-one deal . . . or should I say 4-for-2 . . . because the vases and their contents are reflected in the mirror above the sink.

Hooray for the finishing of long-overdue projects!

And in other news, can you believe it’s already March?  Geez, I don’t know where the time goes.

    I love the shape of the vases as well, Jane. I can’t believe it’s March either! My son will be one year old in April! (cue sobbing) Just kidding. Having Petey made me realize how fast time really flies.

    Simple touches really can have a big impact. And I have a bouquet of the same stuff on my dining table right now.

    I am just reading this post. LOVE these vases!!!! Wow!
    P.S. Any ideas for sprucing up a loong windowsill in an upstairs hallway?  Sill is at about chest- level, and I don’t want to put up curtains.  I’m thinking maybe flowers and/or candles, but it doesn’t quite look right.

      I wonder if you could find an old window and kind of DIY a stained-glass effect using tissue paper and ModPodge, and that way you could cover part of it (like resting the window frame on the windowsill and also add an artistic effect?

      I’m not a huge fan of flowers on windowsills because they can easily get too busy looking…and for some reason when i read your question I immediately thought of a stained glass piece or something.

      Maybe one of those long candle holders that holds a bunch of candles in different heights in a row?

    I love this idea. How did you get it to stay on the wall?
