A seashore Summer vacation!
A seashore Summer vacation!
From sunbathing to relaxing on our balcony with a cup of tea to collecting seashells on the shore, that is where my thoughts are!
But until then I am having fun with my seashore inspired half bathroom.
I spruced things up a bit by changing out the faux flowers, I had roses in a smaller vase there and saw these flowers and the blue bottle at Michael's and thought they would give me more of a seashore wildflower look then the roses did, if that makes sense. I filled the bottle with sand from a previous seashore visit and added a few seashells inside the bottle and around on the vanity.
I just recently added this sweet little antique porcelain fisher boy candle holder to add to the seashore look of the room. See the little grey fish in his hand and the blue cornucopia leading up to the candlestick? I bought this when we went to visit Richard at My Old Historic Home.
Also in the room is this great cabinet...
with lots of fun surprises. The antique seashell washbowl and pitcher would not fit inside so up on top it went. But inside on the top shelf is a matching cup that I found at a different place then the washbowl and pitcher. I was very excited indeed! :)
Upon a closer look at the top shelf, you'll see some antique bottles and tin, shaving mug, souvenir perfume box with two bottles...
and on the far right is one of my recent finds, a little trinket box called a Fairing, they were purchased at Fairs and were very popular during the late 1800's to early 1900's, It's kind of hard to see it, but it's a black haired lady sitting on a gold fence kissing a cupid on a pedestal. So cute I thought.
The liniment bottle with its original label is also a recent find.
On the bottom shelf you'll find some vintage hankies, perfume bottle, silver plated soap box, round stove tile, lady in blue ring box, an embroidered monogrammed sachet and my favorite, Victorian seashell boxes/souvenirs to go with the theme of the bathroom! :)
And on the other wall in this watercolor picture and towel rack with the reflection of the cabinet in the mirror.
I hope you enjoyed your little tour of my seashore inspired half bath. Summer will be here soon, but until then I'm keeping my eyes on the seashore, from right here in my bathroom!
Have a wonderful week and thanks so much for your visit!
