Guest to Getaway

Filed Under Tablescapes | 13 comments

 Ok, it’s true, I am hooked on Paris and Black and White!


I believe in RE-purposing… My ultra talented, brilliant and creative sister was once again moving and being true to herself… cleaning and tossing. I happened to be lucky enough to catch some of her goodies.

I pulled together a true Guest bath… one where a guest could be taken away, whether it be by “Calgon” or any other bubbly aroma.


Voila`… a Paris themed Guest bath. (Black and White Toile on commode top and seat cover, as well accent on towels) Cute little antique bike– huh?


Little bit of storage never hurt!


Don’t you just adore the Eiffel Tower accents?


Listen intently … can you hear the accordion playing softly in the background?


“Love is in the Air!”My sweet niece is allowing me to experience her falling in love with a  handsome Police officer– thus my heart is all Twidderpated.

Today is TABLE SCAPE THURSDAY, with Susan and the gang… (stop by and see the lovely REAL tablescapes they have all created.) So, borrowing from my Parisian Guest bath, let fantasize on a simple Bistro in Paris.






Oh Dear!!!I forgot to cook….(shoosh not that I ever do.) Oh well… Young couples don’t need food, only Love!

Thank you Susan, for presenting a forum for a dreamer like myself to put her chin in her hand and muse a while.

TTFN~~ Claudia

    Loved the visit to Paris, always a winner in these circles.
    Thanks for stopping by my B-B-Q…but my rooster is missing. Did you see anything? And also I had a bike JUST LIKE the one in your bathroom, hanging in my entry way and it is missing too.  Wonder where everything is going???

    I could stand to ‘lose’ a few things. It is piled up like a junk warehouse in places.

    Looking forward to more visiting. Welcome to blogland.

  4. Ohhhhh…..Claudia….You have really created such a dreamy tablescape! It is so romantic! In guest retreat, the Eiffel Towers are a great touch on the towels–so clever!

    Thank you so much for stopping by Rose Cottage Gardens and Farm! I am so glad you came by for a little visit and hope you come by for some tea on the porch again soon…the peonies are starting to bloom.

    What a great bathroom!  I don’t know which I would love to steal more – the little bicycle or the Monsieur/Madame signs.  Very nice job.

    Very nice 🙂 Black and white is such a classic combination. You’ve really brough some France into your  bathroom and your tablescape 🙂

    I’m impressed with how much decor folks can stuff into a small bathroom or powder room. I know it’s been said before but it’s like walking into a jewel box and nearly always an unexpected treat.
