~A Sunny Summer Morning~

Can you believe it's the last week of August?  Where did the Summer go?  My girls will start back to school in a week, so we are trying to soak up the last bit of sun.  We've had beautiful weather this year and I'm going to miss it since there is a feel of Fall in the air lately.

I've had an abundance of hydrangeas this year and have enjoyed many bouquets in my home.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

I added this lovely weathered and worn crusty iron chandelier above my clawfoot tub a while back.  When we were building our home I wanted one there, but it was against code. This one needs to be rewired so I decided to just leave it and use candles instead.  Love the look it brings to my bathroom and the patina goes so well with my rustic ladder.

I have many shells and pieces of coral in this bathroom which gives it a beachy  feel.

My collection of apothecary bottles mixed with the sea life also resides in this room mostly on this shelf.

Enjoy the last of Summer!

  1. Love your displays and glad someone has plentiful hydrangea blooms. Most I have heard don't. I only had about ten blooms. I think it got too cold plus the snow must have done something to them.
    Glad you liked my misspelled word on instagram. OOPS!

  2. Beautiful! I always love seeing your gorgeous bathroom and that wonderful claw tub. So gorgeous.
    I too am trying to savor every last summer day until fall hits us. This summer has gone too fast.

  3. I love this wonderful bathroom. The post will the basket and hooks...love it !!! blessings, xoxo,Susie

  4. This is so lovely, Kathleen! Your beautiful hydrangea give a glorious pop of summer color...

  5. Your bathroom looks so lovely and I love that claw tub. It is strange how things change in life. When I was little the claw tubs were so out of date, but now they are back in and everyone wants one, including me. HA! HA!

  6. Hey you...looking amazing as always..love the shelf( and everything on it). The summer indeed is all but over..cant say I am sorry..want to put on a pair of funky boots and a scarf and feel a nip in the air!! Hope all is well..xo

  7. Kathleen,
    Love all your coastal touches in your bath and that chandy is wonderful!


  8. Just love the enormous charm of your bathroom...you have so many fabulous things that you have beautifully displayed....

  9. The room is stunning. Love every detail here. I had the same issue with a chandelier I wanted over the tub. I was told it's not up to code and since I needed it to function, I had to move it to the center of the room. I like your candle solution... :-)

  10. It is all so beautiful Kathleen! You gave me an idea on what to make with the rest of the fence boards I have out in the garage. Thanx for partying.

  11. Gorgeous gorgeous and gorgeous, Kathleen! Amazing how quickly the summer flew by. I do enjoy the crisp, cool days of autumn....but am really not looking forward to another long, cold winter, that's for sure. lol

    xoxo laurie

  12. I love how you added the shells and coral to add a beachy feel without the 'beach theme'! It is an inviting space where I'm sure you find time to relax every now and again! Blessings

  13. I love the ladder it just adds something a little special to it. Hope you have a great day!

  14. Beautiful job displaying everything - I love your colors.

  15. Every time I see your bathroom, or even a glimps of it, I fall in love all over again.....
    Every inch of it.

    Have a beautiful holiday weekend.


  16. Such a great space to soak and relax in, Kathleen! I love that tub. I like your idea for the chandelier. I would think it would be against code (for safety reasons anyway, although I don't think I've ever had a ceiling fixture fall) so I like that you are using it and have put candles in it. I'll bet it looks wonderful with the candles lit.

    It sounds like you were a lucky one with your hydrangeas. I've read other bloggers have not had any flowers this year and I only had one of my three bushes flower this year.

  17. The weathered ladder is so pretty and I love the side chair! Beautiful bathroom. From Feathered Nest Friday.

  18. GORGEOUS!!! I can't believe how fast this summer went...back to school on Thursday :-(

  19. En nydelig blogg!
    Jeg likte meg her og følger deg videre!

  20. I've always adored your bathroom Kathleen, but now I love it even more with the addition of the weathered iron chandelier. I can just imagine a soak in the bath with lit candles hanging above - bliss!!
    I'm delighted to be featuring your bathroom at Shabbilicious Friday tomorrow.
    Hugs to you sweetie. Hope all is well in your part of the world. K xx

  21. Beautiful Kathleen! Love that gorgeous chandelier,even though it's not lit...it's still adds beautiful charm! I have a planter in my garden very similar to the one in your bathroom.Hard to believe summer break is over.My daughter has been back for two weeks.

  22. Stunning... and that rustic ladder gets me every time! I need to make one and get the pain of needing yours over with. haha

  23. Such a lovely bath, the chandelier is just the right touch. You always pull things together so beautifully!
