or a darling teapot.
I can look at this picture and remember the rainy, rainy day when I visited my hometown and there was nothing to do but go through the gift shops, searching for a memento.
Even the half bath downstairs is the same bright asparagus green. But I added some sepia toned prints I took of my hometown lighthouse to give it my own touch. And I really like the cabinet we found that turned the pedestal sink into a vessel style set up.
Now my whole house is not this colorful. I actually have toned it down in the rest of the house. The dining room has colorful accessories, but is otherwise sedate, at least in my book.
I have a traditional china cabinet in here, but it's contents are anything but traditional. This is also where I keep my child sized tea set, so that I'll be ready to hold lollipop tea parties with my grandchildren when they get old enough.
All the colors in my house make it hard to be down hearted, even in the middle of winter. But don't worry, the master bedroom is quite restful in blue and white. Maybe someday I'll show it to you. Since my garden is sound asleep this time of year, I decided to do a few more homemaker type posts in the meantime. After all, my profession these days is Domestic Goddess. That's what my Facebook page says anyway!
