A Sneak Pink Preview

I've been off work since Christmas and my designated project for this "end of the year" vacation is a bathroom redo.  It's still a long ways from done, but I couldn't resist a sneak pink preview.
I'm repainting the bathroom based on a shower curtain I got at Target a year ago.

I bought green towels, so that only left pink for repainting the top of the walls.  Here are some pictures of a small corner shelf that is over the toilet and between a window and the mirror.  It's about the only part I have done ~ so much more work left to do ~ but I couldn't resist sharing this part.

 This is a small shelf (maybe 18" long), in a small corner, in a very small bathroom.  I usually keep the jars of cotton balls and Q-tips on this shelf, but couldn't help adding a few vintage Christmas ornaments before the season is gone and I have to pack them away.

I found these vintage ornaments at Scott's Antique Market when it was in town this month and they were only $1 each.  How do you like pink Q-tips with vintage ornaments?  Not a likely combination ~ but it works here.

I found this little mercury glass candle holder half-off after Christmas at World Market for only $1.50.

Found this little shelf years ago at Marshall's and still love it.

Sweet simple details make me smile.

I love the addition of the pint-size aqua Ball jar.

Pink isn't a color I would choose to paint a room, and I had my doubts about my decision after I finished the bathroom, but I realize now that I just love pink and aqua together.

Cindy you know I am a pink girl through and through so can't wait to see the big reveal!! I love what I am seeing already!!

I do hope you are taking some time to rest before having to go back to work. you are amazing with all that you get done!

I am taking a lazy day and haven't done hardly a thing! I always like to take the last day of the year and talk it over with the Lord and journal about it and what I sense He is sharing for my future year that He wants to work on or more like what I want Him to work on me!

Hope you have a wonderful New Year friend!

Hi Cindy,
It all looks delightful, the colours do go well together, I think I'd be tempted to leave those vintage baubles out on show all year long!
Thanks for stopping by my blog, it's great to meet new bloggers!

Looking good so far, Cindy! I just know it's going to be quite lovely when you have the final unveil! Maybe I'll even start on my main bathroom today. My daughter is oh-so-anxious for me to get it back together!

Great minds think (and shop) alike. I featured those same aqua mercury glass candle holders on my blog today. I mixed them with green and taupe in our family room. I LOVE the pink and aqua bathroom. Especially the old ball jar and the vintage ornament. Sweet.
