Hummer, Flowers and Bathroom Tweak

We put up the hummingbird feeder last Thursday and they found it. We make the sugar water syrup for them. No red dye as that is very bad for them. It's so awesome to see them!


The white roses above are from a 4th generation rose bush. This is their year. It's just LOADED with roses. Thankful and so enjoying them!




My peonies are blooming and they are AWESOME too! Of course they are my favorite and I'm enjoying them so much!






Tweaking the bathroom shelf and such. I love my lilac colored bathroom. Don't you just LOVE the "fairy" picture. I can't find any information about in on the Internet...This shelf is over the toilet. I have a small bathroom. I would like to add beadboard in the future and take down the shelf. The bathroom also NEEDS a new floor.




These sit on top of the toilet lid in a white wicker tray.




Added to my collection are the lilac colored drape "holders". Aren't they pretty?!

Daughter "INFORMED" me that "they" are having an Open House and Engagement" party on Sunday. I thought the "parents" were to have the engagement party. I'm "holding" my tongue and "going with it". It's also a "potluck". Everyone will bring a dish to share! WHAT!! (Holding my tongue, again!)

Also, if her Dad and his wife come...that will be a story to tell. Her Dad has come alone to other gatherings. "SHE" doesn't like me...and I have said some regretful things that I did apologize for. We'll see! I may need prayers for Sunday! (Holding my tongue, AGAIN!) LOL!!!

That's the plans for the weekend, unless we find an estate sale that we MUST go to. Heard it's going to rain tomorrow so I WON'T have garage sale, part 2 .

Warmly,

deb :)

Love that you decorate your bathroom. Oh honey, the ex's new Mrs, I've had my 'words' with mine also....wedding was not good, she didn't come and she and my daughters Dad contributed nothing...biting my tongue! He did walk her down the aisle and come to the wedding! Oh praying for you! I'm still working on forgiveness!

How did Garage Sale part 1 go? I hated to miss it...

Boy - we (your blog pals) can share some stories about ex's. He died a couple of years ago and that is really not good for the girls so...

Prayers and remember to tell us how it goes...it takes lots of energy to keep quiet. I know.

Such beautiful touches in your bathroom! Just lovely.

Hold your tongue! God with the flow! Potluck??? OK, I'm going to hold my tongue. Is that the purple towel I gave you? Love the humming birds, what fun. Can't wait to see how the weekend turn out!

I need to learn to hold my tounge, NOT a quality I have.
The wind blew my humming bird feeder down. I guess I had better get it back up if I want any humming birds this year.
I will be praying for you this weekend. Go with the flow, and if the flow gets to rough or uncomfortable I am SURE you can find a great sale somewhere!

You roses and lilac bathroom are very pretty!
We just have to let kids do things the way they want to these days... even if it's not what we would choose. My niece had a very crazy wedding/marriage/ reception arrangement that pretty much only she could understand. We just went with it and didn't worry about it. It was her day, after all.
Relationships with Ex's can be really tricky. Hope the weekend goes smoothly.

Marilyn said...

Love the bathroom arrangement....and that you told us you need a new floor. LOL. Funny story about the ex...you made me laugh again.

Such a beautiful bathroom. Lovely collections. Best wishes with your upcoming weekend.

Theresa said...

Hi Deb! Your bathroom is so pretty! I love the fairy print, too. I've never seen one like it before. Good luck this weekend! Sounds like you may need it! Have a nice holiday! Twyla

Scrap for Joy said...

My peonies are beautiful this year, too, although not as many as I usually have. There are so mmany pretty things in your bathroom...I would have to spend a bit of time there taking it all in.
Good luck this weekend. Don't let anyone bring you down to their level...keep your wits and your dignity about you.

Your lilac bathroom is beautiful! I love it AND that fairy print. I have never seen that particular one before. Good luck with the weekend potluck party (I'd be holding my tongue, too)-Hmmm...maybe you SHOULD hold it- LITERALLY...can't talk if you have your tongue between your fingers now, can you? lol xo Diana

boopnut said...

Looking at your photos is like going into a quaint gift shop. I love your bathroom collection!

My Vintage Studio said...

Your bathroom is just too cute.
The flowers are beautiful! You really must have a green thumb.
I reaaly can't give advice on holding your tongue...I always speak my mind. Yes, I get in trouble sometimes.
Sending prayers your way for your Sunday gathering.
XO Sharon

Pink Roses and Teacups said...

Such a pretty bathroom Deb! Love the things you hung on the wall.
I have an EX too, thankfully we get along ok. Her dad and step dad walked her down the isle. He was married 3 more times after me. Guess they found out what he was like the hard way. LOL!

Hello Miss D...hope you are well sweet friend~

You know the girl in the picture with the long dark hair? She looks EXACTLY like my daughter did at that age. I have a small print like it and just adore it. No info on it either! :(

Love your flowers and the birdies...

Potluck???? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm..... Not sure about that but I guess everyone does their OWN THING, right? You are going to continue to grow and grow and bloom and grow. God has a plan!

Love to you~Rebecca

I love lilac! Your bathroom and my guest room are a match made in heaven.

You are correct about the party. I know there are bridal party etiquette books available. :)

Aledia said...

Karen Mary Butterfly said...

That fairy picture is dreamy. Love it. Beautiful flowers...if only I could get over my fear of hummingbirds. :)Always enjoy reading your posts!

Such beautiful touches in the bathroom. Wow your brave sitting on top of the toilet.

Dont you ever think. Bang as the toilet seat wants to take a dive?

Crash bang?

Melinda Cornish said...

I have always got a lot to say too, not always appreciated.

Martha's Favorites said...

Hi: You are so funny. Love the comment on the MIL. I will pray that it gets better for you. Weddings are so stressful. My daughter has a huge wedding. It took a Village to get it together. It all works out in the end. Love the flowers. Blessings, Martha
