If we would still live in south CA,
this flower would be blooming right now!

But no, we now live in Northern California,  Hubs started the
demolition of  the bathroom of our master bedroom.
This is the 3rd house we own in the USA
it seems we always want a “better” bathroom.

This time it’s because there’s only a small shower
(and leaking!). Hubby is knocking out some walls to make it
a few feet bigger, and turning everything
around . The tub and toilet  and vanity top
with two sinks (normal in the USA) have been
purchased, and looking for cheap floor and wall tiles!

In viewing this image, I thought, oh, there is a DOOR,
after a minute … wait, there’s also a REFLECTION
in the mirror. My hesitation to put a bathroom in my post
instantly disappeared!

This is one of the many bathrooms Hubs remodeled
for his job. Ours will looks just as nice  as this one
(bigger with a personal touch)

Some “blind” doors in Roseville, CA as we call them in the Netherlands, for good
measure. At one time they may have been real doors,
but now they can’t be opened.

Maybe something like this? (this one is not mine)

For some time I’ve been kind of wanting to do a 3-D art project,
like mosaics or soap stone to sculpt.  In the beginning of
marital life, hubs did not know –  what you may read in
the (auto) biographies of artists-  that that is one
of the  markers of an artist. They turn their life
upside down, or move heaven and earth, to get to do their art.

Inconvenience  or customary living is not in their book.
Now he knows it’s futile trying to stop me,
even if I would be “too busy.”

  1. Isn’t it great to have a husband who can DO things? I’m blessed that way as well. It will definitely be worth the temporary inconvenience!


  2. How exciting to be remodeling your bathroom! We did our nearly 4 yrs ago and love it! We too knocked out walls to make our stall bigger than a telephone box.

    Looking forward to seeing the new bathroom images!


  3. The bathroom renovation is a tough job, but soon you can enjoy a bit of daily luxury! That is a peaony? Charming!


  4. Good luck with the bathroom reno. We need to do the same with one of ours….. Thanks for linking up today.


  5. Opps… forgot to enter my information!!

    Best of luck with your bathroom remodel. They are a lot of work (even when you hire others to do the work)! I like your sky shot and also your 3-D art project!!

  7. Hello, it is great your hubby is able to do the bathroom renovations. Contractors cost so much to do work. Love your beautiful sky photo. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead.


  8. Your hubs is my hero. Our upstairs bathroom is in serious need of a new look but I’m torn between doing it myself and paying to have it done. The former is more work than I’m ready for and the latter is more money than I want to spend – oh the dilemma 😀


    1. No need to apologize. Everyone’s barely present during the end and beginning of the year. Hope you had an enjoyable time!
      No doubt it will be done the “right” way, and I’m gladly staying out of it. I already know the design – and room for a tub and two sinks will be a great selling point.


  9. Those hills are wild, I think I’ve seen some in Northern California. They looked like burial mounds at first. I think having a nice bathroom can go a long way to reducing stress and you’re lucky hubby has skills. I’m missing the color of warmer climates right about now but we’re supposed to get snow in the next two days so we’ll see.
