(in process, but now painted)
The master bathroom has been painted white the entire time we have lived here, so it was only appropriate to welcome in spring with a bit of a face lift and a few new accessories for the necessary room. The picture above is a "before" one of the east window. Indulgent Mocha from Behr over builders' white paint is now its cover. A new clock on another bathroom wall to let us know how long it takes to brush teeth.
And I whipped up a new valence for that east window. Seems it always gets hot in mid morning from that direct sun, so perhaps this fabric will shield some of that sun while taking showers.
Gardening! Our wildflower garden planted last spring is doing nicely, thank you. But the bluebells did not make it over the winter. It was just too darned cold for their survival. But the penstemon did VERY well.
Welcome to my garden with purple and yellow columbines...
honeysuckle that opened up this morning with a heavenly smell...
and welcome also to the prayer garden in the back that is filling in nicely with ground cover, iris, chives, mums and natural tall grasses, along with a few other bulbs.
And then it was time to whip up a few new dishcloths (the eLoomanator and Grandma's Favorite Dishcloth held with triple strands of cotton yarn to make a couple of fiesta potholders.
Sadly, my husband the chef said that three strands of cotton was not enough thickness to keep his hands from a burn. So these fiesta cloths might have to go into the facecloth pile in the closet. Sigh.
For lunch, my favorite chicken salad recipe found here by Emeril. It uses fresh tarragon, of which there is an abundance in the herb area. I use more than Emeril says, and we seem to never have an apple on hand, but it is good enough even without the apple. Next time a picture; this time I forgot to snap a picture of the herbs, and the salad is not yet made.
How are you welcoming June?
