A Day Out With My Mom (And Progress on My Bathroom)
Yesterday, Mom and I went out to for her Mother's Day gift - lunch out and some shopping. I took her to a restaurant she had never been to, on the Susquehanna river, John Wright Restaurant. The day was warm and pleasant, and we sat on the patio at a table with an umbrella and a view!
We had a delicious lunch and good conversation, and as we were preparing to head out to shop, it started to rain.
The first place we went was Tollbooth Antiques in Columbia. With the rain, the humidity was high, and while it wasn't a hot day, that humidity was something, and Tollbooth has no air conditioning! It is located in an old warehouse!
I found this treasure -
It is a heavy, high quality mirror, and is likely going in the hall bathroom. It is on the mantel for now but I may move if from there as it's not hung and I'm worried it will slide and fall. This mirror is going to have to be hung properly, due to the weight of it, and not in my usual whack a nail up and hang stuff. This will require Tim's great skills, and so I have to wait and be patient!
Don't you think it will look amazing though, with my white painted vanity, blue and white shower curtain and these -
I think my Mom thinks hanging plates in my bathroom is 'weird', though she didn't say so, exactly. She said, "I wouldn't have thought to hang plates in the bathroom." Then I said, "I know! Don't they look great though?" She didn't comment! ha ha! It's all good though, I have confidence in my design choices! I love them in there! Cheryl mentioned either here in a comment or on Instagram, that the shower curtain reminded her of Williamsburg! I think so too, and I love it there, and that is why I thought this mirror would look great in there, too, even though it's not perhaps exactly Federal Style.
I'm enjoying the process of decorating this hall bathroom and not rushing to 'put stuff on the walls,' as is my usual pattern.
So what are you up to this week?
