Tom and Kyle returned from Mexico safe and sound. They had a great time viewing Mayan ruins, scuba diving and just hanging out. Tom brought me back some goodies including this. It's a hand painted ceramic sink. We decided that we are going to redo our bathroom.
We do rent our place so we've been avoiding a bathroom makeover. We are going to stay here at least a couple more years since our rent is low & it allows us to save money. The bathroom is the only room that we absolutely despise. We can scrub & scrub it but, it never really looks good. Our building is prewar and it has some lovely original features like moldings, hardwood floors with mahogany trim and even pretty glass door knobs. Our bathroom is also prewar with the original tiles which are crumbling and the bathtub isn't so great either. We are going to have someone resurface our bathtub and tiles. We'll paint it ourselves, put in a new floor and medicine cabinet and a new vanity. The pretty Mexican sink will be the centerpiece of that vanity and will inspire the rest of the decor. We would like it to be colorful with a slight tropical feel. I'll keep you posted on the progress.
In other news, while Tom was away on his Mexican vacation, I was in pretty Brookfield Connecticut for 5 days getting certified in this. It was hard work but well worth it. What a treat it was to spend almost all of my time using my creativity. And now I can offer these fab new services in my business.
If you find yourself with nothing to do this holiday weekend or the weather in your neck of the woods is less than perfect than check out this movie. It's the most entertaining one we've seen so far this year. It features a great ensemble cast including Steve Carell, Toni Collette and Alan Arkin and great new talent, too (the kids rock!). It's definitely quirky, fun, touching and laugh out loud funny.
