Our Bathroom at Christmas

                                                                  Today,I gave our old fashioned bathroom
                                                                   some Christmas touches .
                                                         Our home is 95 years old so when
                                                         we changed this room from a small
                                                         bedroom to an ensuite bath several
                                                        years ago we wanted to make it look
                                                        like it was always here so we looked for
                                                        an old cast iron tub and sink.

                                                              Some natural greenery add a
                                                              touch of Christmas.
                                                                  If you noticed the difference
                                                              in color in the two above photos
                                                             it is all about light balance.....the first
                                                             one was on auto balance and the nrxt
                                                             one was on sunny day balance ~giving
                                                             a warm golden look. Not sure which you like
                                                             the best but in this room I like the golden
                                                             light best.
                                                               A bubble bath awaits!
                                                               Candles are glowing!

                                                                     The little details!

                                                       I had a lovely afternoon tea out with some
                                                       good friends so I am later posting but
                                                       I hope you enjoyed some touches of

                                                       Today,I am joining Shabbilicious Friday
                                                        at Shabby Art Boutique.

                                                                       Thank you for visiting,

HI Carolyn! Oh, I love your beautiful bathroom and it does look vintage. You did a great job making it look like it'd always been there. I love the pretty tub and the little shelf above the tub and all of your Christmas touches! Hope you're doing well.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

So wish your bathroom where mine! It's a perfectly charming space to escape to for some pampering.

Just love everything about it right up to the wall paper, and that's saying a lot because I am still not a big fan of paper.
But your rooms wall paper is nudging me in that direction.

See you soon.

That candle-lit cozy adorable iron tub with bubbles is calling out my name, Carolyn! A white comfy bathroom and book, seriously, how do I sign up to stay at The Aiken Bed and Breakfast? You needn't even fix me breakfast, if I could just have a hot cuppa now and then I'd just stay in the bed and bath the entire time. : - )

Such a beautiful bathroom, Carolyn! I love that tub! I think you accomplished your goal of having it look like it was always there.

[sigh]... such a perfect bathroom Carolyn. I remember my grandmother's tub when I was small and how it seemed so big I could swim in it. I'd love to sink into yours and gaze serenely at the beautiful Christmas touches all around me. I'm delighted to be featuring your Christmas bathroom on Shabbilicious Friday tomorrow.
Merry Christmas ~ Kerryanne
