And Finally! The New Bathroom!
I woke up really early this morning (about an hour after my Boss went to bed, apparently, if Twitter is to be believed) and got all the morning chores done (amazing what you can do waiting for water to boil in a POT on your stove because you have no fast boiling electric Tea Kettle) and thought I might continue with this energy and take the pictures of the new bathroom that I have been promising you.
King Lear the Huge, and Little Queen Mab were all for this. They live up there and are always interested in such things. Or steak bits, hard to say.
I wish I still had a picture of the OLD bathroom. It was dreadful. Kind of pink, with flowers, bad faux Tiffany, a horrible tacky shower and a really cool, tho useless for bathing, Claw Foot bathtub.
That's Lear in his water dish. Bengals LOVE water and it doubles as a small pool for him.
I am not the BEST one at picking colours for things, but I am liking the way this turned out. Mary Housekeeper did the painting of the bathroom, as I am really not the best at such things.
You can see on the shelf of the stand there is a Blow Dryer, that Miss Kitty bought for my house a year ago, so she would have one when she comes to visit and I would be able to use it the other times. Next time she is here, I will get her to teach me how it works. Not sure I GET it, as the two times I tried, other than DRY, it did not improve the appearance of my HAIR in any way, like it does her.
My bathroom, unlike any other room in the house, has TWO heating vent things, neither of which will close. But they look good. Functional or ornamental. Either works for me. It is the warmest room in the Spooky House.
My bathroom has one cupboard. The Victorians were not much on closets, or cupboards. They had Wardrobes for things. Or maybe they didn't have many things. I looked in my cupboard this morning. It seems to have paint in it. Not being that sort of artist, this seems wrong to me. My toiletries are in the Butlers Pantry. Need to work on this one.
The bathtub was the BEST, thing ever to come into this house, and I include myself and the Bengals in that. I can't have candles, simply not safe with all these Leopards, but I do have Bubbles. Best end of the day in the winter I ever came up with.
I still need more art. Can't have original art in a bathroom, so I have to sort of find it. That's a lovely Tasmanian Devil print. Nothing screams bathroom like a Tasmanian Devil.
The old cool, but useless for bathing Claw Foot Tub? Of course one does not dump a tub that cool! The choice seemed clear to me.
Dinning room. With a Skeleton.
Love and Bathrooms,
