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?

How does Paul like the flowery bathroom? I think Mark would object loudly! :D

He has his OWN bathroom that is strictly guy colors and guy towels and he can throw stuff on his floor. He doesn't mind my bathroom, because he doesn't use it. Wa-hoo!

you are so talented, I wish I new you did all this when I had my daughter 20 months ago. I would love one of those diaper carriers, I hate taking that huge thing around with me everywhere I go. How much are they?
