Hello and welcome
to this week's edition of
Hello, Bella Nest folks. I'm Bliss from Bliss Ranch flying in for a spot in Holly's nest. Did you all look at that adorable face behind Bella Nest? Holly is too cute for words, and she is also as sweet as pie. So when she shyly asked me if maybe I might kinda sorta wanna do a guest post it was a no brainer for me- of course I do! Besides I have a fondness for the name Holly.
here and read a post about what's on the back of all the toilets at Bliss Ranch. It's a fun read and I have a nice toilet if I do say so myself.
Our bathroom is split into two areas; vanity-closet area, and tub, shower and twalet. All the woodwork was hand made by my husband. The only thing crazier would be if it was hand made by him from trees on our property. Yup that too. I have already told Bliss Ranch readers that the man has more talent than anyone has a right to possess. Not only did he make the vanity and all the trim, he built the house, hung the mirror, installed the faucets...... well you get the idea, he does it all. Some talent has rubbed off on me but honestly why pick up anything heavy when I have him to do that?
I have an accidental scissor collection. Vintage ones we inherited along with the steri-tool holder when we bought an old building that housed a barber shop.
This old ammo crate is next to the tub. I picked it up at the occasional sales my daughters and I hit every month. I was thinking it would look great at my daughters house, but it ended up in my bathroom. She can't have it now.
That same day at sales I got this very heavy metal ladder. It has moved around my house a few times the last month. For now it leans in my bathroom. The soaps in the glass bowl are made by a company that peddles a bike as power making them - Just Soap. I love the scents, cinnamon, cloves... if you like you can check my post about them here.
Here is another shot of the woodwork in this room. What you can't see are all my bottles of shampoo and conditioner. One of my resolutions this year was to use up all the stuff I have, so I can't show you the shower because it looks like a shelf from the beauty isle at the store, only not neat and tidy. I'm counting the days till I can toss some when they are gone.
Seriously it looks like Rapunzel showers here.
This antique cabinet is a new addition and yes those are Rapunzels hair care cords in the background. I used to have a big jewelry cabinet in this spot to house all the bracelets my kids made me in school, with one drawer for their baby teeth. Neither of those things helped me when I needed a towel, so the jewelry (or lack of) cabinet is now in the closet. Notice on the floor, tucked under the cabinet, the perfect fit for the scale I never ever get on unless I want to ruin my day. Out of sight out of mind.
|I have bottles sitting around, but sure hate dusting them|
This bathroom is bright and sunny and I have a view of two sides of the yard. No shades on the windows either, no one can see in, at least I hope not!
Thank you Holly for having me. Your followers are invited to stop over at Bliss Ranch anytime and say hi. Everyone's welcome at the ranch.
