I love bathroom pics. That and my bedroom are my 2 favorite rooms in a home! And I would definitely choose deconstructed over slick modern stuff, beautiful!

Good Morning! Well I was just clicking away and came across your beautiful blog! I'm thrilled to have found you - :)
I love this picture - I would take it anyday and never complain about having no counter space!
And, I would take your friend's lake house in a heartbeat - what talent she had.
I can't wait to follow along ~
Have a beautiful Easter.
Sarah :)

I agree, that's why European interiors resonate so much more with me. They get to start out with time worn spaces!!

You are so right there is something about a piece that has a lovely time worn patina that looks as if it could tell a story. I wonder just what that sink would tell us?!! Kathysue
