A touch of pink

Happy Friday, my beloved readers!
During our weekly stitch’n’bitch, dear L
and I were uber-productive. I took a break from my baby quilts
and bibbity bobbity bibs
to work on a home-decor item.
On a whim, I decided wanted to create some new art for
our shared my chocolate brown and white bathroom. I needed to cover up a very unsightly jacuzzi dial …
Two hours later, the whole wall was transformed … for free! Using an old wooden frame — which I painted pink — a canvas, some ribbon, gems, an angel figurine, and some wedding towels — lovingly arranged by L — we made this …
Once that wall was done, L and I were inspired to keep the renos going! I think it was a pink-and-chocolate-brown high.
So I dug around in my crafty drawers, and found a make-your-own-nightlight kit that I bought ages ago and never used. A little chocolate brown
leather — rescued from an old bag — and pink
ribbon, and I had a new nightlight!
Eager to keep going, I grabbed some leftover Juicy Couture printed ribbon — which I saved after unwrapping my Christmas robe from Little Sis — and tied it around some matching towels by the tub.
Pink, hearts, ribbon, gems … it is a girly overload, and I adore it. Thank God Darling Husband has his own bathroom.
*UPDATE: When I went into the bathroom this morning, it was SO CHEERY to see the pretty pink art on the walls! Success!
