Powder Room Update

Since going back to work, I haven’t had much time or energy to do anything. I’m tired, the house is a disaster, and I don’t think the boys have eaten anything but canned soup and cereal for dinner over the past three months. I finally got a chance to spend a few minutes in the downstairs powder room.

I have been in love with this antique receipt file ever since I saw it on our last visit to Heritage Village.

When I saw that Pottery Barn was selling a replica as an Advent Holiday Card Calendar, I knew I had to have it.

I had the perfect spot for it in the powder room.

It ties in perfectly with the vintage theme I have going on in there.

I’ll tweak the items that I have on display over time… But I just LOVE it!

I also “updated” the photos I have in my frames.

These were very small family photos, maybe 2 x 3, that I blew up to an 8 x 10 size.

I am guesstimating that they were taken sometime in the late twenties or early thirties.

Someone decided that they were going to hand colorize the photos… One of the children? My Great Grandfather?

They didn’t do the best job, but I think they’re charming.

At least I found a few minutes for fun stuff. Have a great week!
