Bloomin' Bathroom

I added these a while ago to my bathroom, but I guess I have never posted pictures up of them. This is one of my favorite quotes from growing up. My mom gave me this framed Mary Englebreit picture to go in my room while I was growing up. Every year this quote seems to take on more and more meaning. Luckily, and somewhat patiently, I have finally learned to bloom wherever I am planted. I love really bright, happy colors--so of course when I get the chance to decorate my OWN bathroom (that's right, my husband has his own and it is WON-DER-FUL!!), I just had to use these decorations.

This is just a little wood plaque I made to go on my shelf. I just cut out some letters with my cricut, and modge-podge'd it all together. I added black rub-on lettering to finish the quote.

I downloaded pictures of flowers off the internet and printed them out through Wally-world. I spray painted some cheap frames to match everything else.

I found these really cute Gerbera daisy wall stickers at the dollar store. There were like 20 to a package, so I put them on everything. As seen above.

Flowers, flowers, everywhere. I think I'm ready for Spring to come.

I told you I put those flowers everywhere.

Everywhere. I mod podge'd them onto a dollar store candle.

And some clippy-on sunflowers got attached to my laundry basket and to some towels tied together.

This is not in my bathroom, but it is just one more thing I didn't post yet. This is the vinyl over my kitchen. I cut it out using my Cricut as well. Pretty handy, isn't it?

Goodwill Makeover

This is just a little dollar diddy I found at Goodwill. I had extra material from this tablecloth that I had made for my kitchen table (pics of that later) and I thought it might look cute replacing the corkboard middle of this shelf. It will now hang above my table, finally making my front kitchen and my living room match.
