A Very Improper Bathroom Redo
Did you do a gift registry when you got married? I did one. I clearly remember carefully selecting perfectly matching towel bars, hand towel rings, and toilet paper holders.
I picked soap holders, and very proper little trashcans.
The thought that one is not required to dress a house in perfectly matching items from an acceptable house wears store never even occurred to me!!
I remember a great many silly opinions I had a new house keeper.
I distinctly remember throwing a fit about all the white walls in my first house.
I bet you can't guess what color every single blessed wall in this house is going to get painted?!
I would have turned up my nose at much of the thrift store "this and that" that now I love to scatter about the house.
To put a kitchen run in the bathroom would have been totally unacceptable.
One must do what what is acceptable to do!
The problem with acceptable ... it's just so bland.
I would hate to know what I would have thought of this house, if I had seen it back then.
It's funny time can change you isn't it?
The lesson I'm learning in this house? Look at what it can be, not at what it is! That is how God looks at me, and I am ever so grateful.
