New Bathroom Curtains




Happy Spring!!!!



A few meters of Ikea fabric.  




I bought these grommets for a buck a pack!

Template on back of package....how clever!

I taped a string across the center to keep it lined up on the fabric

Placed the string on my mark... and the edge of the template with the edge of the fabric.

Used a sharpie to mark my circles...

And start cutting!

Grommet half inserted

Just push the two together.  They snap closed.  So easy!


My pretty "Wild and In Your Face" shower curtains!  Really adds a punch of color to my fairly neutral room.

My obsession with hand towels.

Another one.

A vignette in my tower cupboard.

A cute little marionette elephant my daughter brought me back from a trip, now has a perfect home.   The bucket which was purchased as a two pack at Ikea, is used to rinse out the tub.  I fell in love with the color.

Some things stay the same like the poop spray!


And a true Mothers Day Picture!
Happy Mothers Day to all you Moms and especially to my  Mom!!
Cheers.

  4. Love those -- I'm a real "color" person, so I think this splash of bright and fun is perfect! I really like the grommet look across the top.

    Sweet baby owls! Our local Lowe's store had a family in their garden center. I guess the mom has been using the same location for several years.

  9. I love grommets, I've seen those packages at my local fabric store, they weren't that cheap though, but for some reason I thought they were not of good quality! You've changed my mind, I might give them a try someday! The fabric is very pretty!
