The mister and I have been in talks about the bathroom in our bedroom and how we will fix it up. Right now it's pretty "meh". The paint is not at all appealing to me, but it's been tolerable. The countertops are perfectly fine and so is the shower, but it's not very tranquil and that is something I definitely long for. Plus, it doesn't even begin to match our bedroom, as that was the first room we painted. I would love to be able to recreate this bathroom - view included. Although our view is pretty rad if I do say so. It overlooks a meadow and many mornings I have looked out and watched groups of deer frolicking, with their fluffy white tails bobbing up and down. I'm thinking we'll paint the walls the same shade of minty blue green as our bedroom and hang wainscot halfway up the walls. We'll add some shelves and pops of red and voila, the perfect bathroom shall transpire!
Between taking care of Stevie, work and well, taking care of Stevie, there hasn't been much motivation to knit. I've been trying to work on finishing up a last-minute Christmas gift (that obviously didn't really turn out to be a last-minute gift considering it's mid-January practically and it's no where near being done) and still have a lot to do, but when I'm done, I'm thinking this beautiful pattern is my next project. The last hat I knit for myself was definitely a learning project. It was completely unwearable even though it looked good over all.
How chic are these mittens? I love the zipper and I love how warm they are making me feel. They're on sale, too!
I purchased a bar of soap a few months ago from a boutique here in Louisville and I've been loving the way it feels and smells. If you're in the Brooklyn area, check out Saipua - a family-owned soap and flower shop with amazing scents. They're carefully handmade in the store and they have some pretty great packaging too, might I add. If you're not in Brooklyn, the soaps are sold across the US! I have the gardener's soap and I love it, but I really wish I could wash my hands with the coffee mint right about now!
So many of us are experiencing winter today - finally. Since I have the day off, I'm thinking that curling up by the window with a book is the best idea.
Happy Thursday, everyone! What's inspiring you today?
