I had a very, very good day last week. You know when you find a little treasure and you feel on top of the world? Well, that was last week when I stumbled upon an unexpected "find".
I needed some time out of the house and so I went and did what any self respecting woman would do. I went antiquing! The treasure hunting Gods were smiling down on me. I found something so full of history and whimsy for my bathroom.
You know, this one.

Before I show you what I found...
here are a few of the newest updates to the bathroom. I managed to get the curtain hung up and made this pull back by simply hot gluing a starfish to the fabric tie back and nailed a hook in the wall.
Easy peasy!!

Hanging things are not fun (to me) but I finally faced my fears with this glass shelf and just went for it. I love how it looks as you walk in.

I forgot I owned this old sea bottle that I have had for years and it never had a place that highlighted it's beauty. (Finding it was fun ) My mom gave it to me back when we lived in England. She found it at an antique store there. I guess this antiquing thing runs in my blood.

These were also a fun "find" or should I say major SCORE.
HomeGoods I love you. Both of theses cuties were $3 on clearance!!

Now for the fun part. This was my find at the antique store last week.


To say I love these signs, with all their rusty, chippy charm would be an understatement. I saw them and seriously my heart started to beat a little faster.

I have one more thing to find and then my bathroom is officially done.
I need an old worn out oar. Like this one below.

I WILL find one!
(at the right price)

Happy Monday. Do something that makes you happy today.
