My new bathroom

I love my tub, it is just the right size, set here in this cozy little alcove it is a thing of beauty in my eyes. It still has a ways to go as far as decoration goes but this is my start. I don't have any before pictures but I think the end results is the most important, don't you? In the right corner is a darling corner shelf I got from one of my favorite places," Shabby Cottage" she has the most darling things and they are all recycled, and put to reuse. This corner shelf holds my soaps, bubble bath, bath crystals, and just some cute things.

This cute little wicker number was a garage sale purchase, and is perfect for towels in the bottom and bath powder and candles, and such on top.
A bit of a closer view of the corner shelf. It is so perfect, and I had looked so hard to find it, and I am really happy with it.
The picture that is leaning on the wainscoating is one of mine and it will just lean there untill I find something I really like to hang on the wall. I hate to make holes in a new wall. Speaking of the wainscoating, it is super, I have never had a room with it before and it is just perfect for this little tub room.

I have always, and forever wanted a bathroom big enough for furniture, now I have it. My slipper chair is in need of recovering but I draped it with some old linens and it will do for now. Won't you look at the silver feet on the tub, just too lovely.
If you look behind the chair you can see some of the detail of the door molding and the floor trim. You can't see the floor real good but it is tile and it has pink glass embeded into where some of the tiles meet but not visable in this pic. I could only post 5 pictures so I tried to get the best ones.
I must say this is the crowing touch, who doesn't like chandeliers, this little beauty is hanging right above my tub.
This part of the remodeled master bath was the brainchild of an old friend and he did a good job, on it. His idea was the best of all of the 4 or 5 other contractors. This is just one part of the master bath I will post more at another time.

Last of the Roses

I am so sad to say good bye to my roses. I may get a few more blooms but not the abundance of summer. This is Graham Thomas, it is a beautiful yellow rose that blooms thru out the summer into fall. I have 2 of the above Graham Thomas rose bushes.

Pink and delicate, I don't know what the name of this one is, it was in the orphan bin at the nursery. You buy it at a discount and take your chances as to what it will be. This one was a winner.

Rigours and constant, this rose blooms and blooms and blooms. It has hundreds at a time. I lost the name of it as all my name tags faded in the sun I think it is Reine something. I have several others but these are still going and I hope they will for a couple of weeks yet.
To all who love their roses, and I know few who don't I give you a quote " I would rather have roses in my garden than diamonds on my neck"Emma Godman, I am not sure about the last name, but that is exactly how I feel. TTFN
