Lace and Roses in the Bathroom for Pink Saturday

Thank you to Beverly of howsweetthesound for having Pink Saturday. Please go visit the others for a delightful display of pink! And Happy Pink Saturday to all of you.

This guest bathroom needed something while waiting for the painter to give it its coat of pink paint. I saw this idea over on Myrna's blog the other day and thought I'd try it. Her bathroom is lovelier than mine but it looks a bit better until I can get around to fluffing it up a bit more. I simply took a long scarf, tied it in certain places with pink ribbon and foofed up the bundle of fabric and made a rosette out of each one. Then I put that vintage doily on it because I've been trying to figure out what in the world to do with it! After it's painted pink I'll add some paper roses and more snippets of lace to it I think.

Me, trying to take a picture and getting caught in the mirror.


  1. My Gosh Chickee! Have you been busy or what? If I didn't know better I would say you're in your last trimester and getting ready to pop. You know you have the last big burst of energy. With the heat of summer and you decorating away over there. If you get bored you can come over here and give me a hand. Happy Pink Saturday. Great post as always. Country Love and Hugs, Sherry

  15. Lovely bathroom. It will look wonderful painted!

  16. What a wonderful idea! I have the same light fixture and I've used two kinds of ribbon to tie around each bulb. One is a dotted swiss white ribbon with the wire ends and the other is a white satin ribbon to which I hot glued a pink rose to the end of each ribbon. Blogging is sure a great source for decorative ideas!
