Tree Decorating Ideas

Pinterest to the rescue!!! Love all of these. Which is your favorite?

This makes me think of my childhood. I love all the colours. 🙂

Colorful Christmas tree-

I love how bright this one is….I’m like a moth to a flame when it comes to lights apparently. LOL,

I need a room in my house exactly like this so I can decorate it for Christmas

Love how this Cottage gets a Christmas makeover each year, this year it oozes "French Country Cottage". Get more tips at http://rentaltonic.com/pinterest-for-more-bookings-this-christmas/

Bathroom Musings

It’s not what you think. 😉 Although my best ideas come to me while I am in the shower, these musings are actually about my bathroom. You see, I want to freshen it up. A new coat of paint, maybe some curtains, lights….and this is where the daydream takes off.

This first image has a very similar set up as our downstairs bathroom.  I love how crisp and clean everything looks. Our tile is an off white so I’m not sure how well the blue wall colour would go with it but I love the white and the added touches.

Just the right amount of mint, not too much so that it starts to look like the Lizzie Borden house... a tad lighter for downstairs bath

I am in love with this paint pallet, what do you guys think?

These looks are a little darker but the grey really works with the tan tile and deeper brown. Yet another possibility.

I love the tile & color ... however, I think gray is too cool for a bathroom.  The tile & porcelain already feel cool, you will end up always feeling cold in here.

And of course details matter, so I thought these little touches would be cute. I love the labels on the jars, adds that little extra and still keeps it very clean-looking.

I also love the idea of taking down the towel bars and using these hooks. To be painfully honest, we never use the towel bars anyways. At least this way the towels will be hung rather than slung over the side of the shower.

Framed pictures of kids in the bath??? YES PLEASE!

So how would you describe your bath room? Clean and crisp? Family friendly? What little touches have you added to make it personal?

And, of course, I just had to share this photo with you all. Look at the size of this tub. Can you imagine how much water you would have to use to fill that sucker up? IT’S AWESOME!!! Not really logical but STINKIN AWESOME!

Mint and Marigolds

And the fun just continues. Here are a couple of before pics without the flowers.

We decided to line the path with marigolds and then just sporadically plant various flowers throughout the flowerbed.  Jason got to work at one end while I tried to evenly space out the flowers along the path.

I got a short break when my Vox Box came from Influenster. My fingers were stained black due to the black mulch and dirt but I couldn’t resist opening this baby up and peaking in. Huge review to come on this so stay tuned.

Here are some after pictures. I love the look of having various flowers and colours scattered in no particular order.  Once they fill it I think it will be beautiful.  These pictures were taken three days later, if you look at the grass – you can already see it coming up. Greener lawn here we come!

I also planted a couple in a huge “tea-cup” that sits on our front porch (so cute!). And then I got a bonus plant; my neighbour has a TON of mint growing in her back yard and gave me a couple of plants. Mint leaves in ice water on a scorching hot day will taste heavenly.

We still have more flowers to plant but that is what we have completed so far. What do you guys think? Would you prefer a more uniformed look to your flowerbed or the crazier the better? Let’s discuss over some ice tea with a sprig of mint shall we (seriously I am so stoked about having mint plants!).
