Found a few more things for the queen / king bathroom. Love this bird with crown, and the  metal crown I painted black.  Need another rug and towels.  What else? Hmm....   Any ideas welcome.  I have to keep some pink since my husband and a friend drug the pink 1950's toilet home found curbside in great shape! Need to paint cabinets and lightfixture.  Wish a chandie would go in there but I have a 5 ft. skylight in ceiling.

Fit for a Queen

 Present to me ! Got this from the "Junk Gypsies" . Finally a cool shower curtain. Wonder how "Mr. Shabby Junk" will feel about this?.  Going to look for some rugs and towels now.  I bet Hobby Lobby has something to go with this.

Rest In Peace Daddy

My dad died of lung cancer 9 years ago today.  Here is a sweet photo of him as a child.  Notice the "Coca Cola" sign in background.  I just love this photo of him ,with this cool car and his boots and hat!
