Revisit ~ Purple, White and Shimmery

Hi everyone!

Today is the day to revisit an old post for Chari's party "Sunday Favorites" and since I am sharing a Christmas post from last year, I am also joining "Seasonal Sunday" And a little redo was involved in this post, I am also joining "Sunday Showcase". I hope you will visit these lovely blogs for lots of fun ideas!

Hi Everyone! I am trying to recover from my hard drive crash earlier this week. But, I wanted to get a Show and Tell Friday post up over at Cindy's Blog, "My Romantic Home".

The following pictures are from our little bathroom that is done a bit shabby chic style in purple and white with teacups. Some of my pictures are a little blurry. Sorry about that.

First up is a little white vase that I got for .50 cents at a second hand store this past summer. As you can see from the first picture, it came with a not so lovely fake flower in it. I dug it out to play around with it with some of my pretty Christmas sparklies I had in my box of Christmas goodies for this bathroom. I didn't buy any new ornaments except the cool crystal ornament hangers.

Troy has been making fun of this vase and flower all week because it has been sitting on the diningroom table. I am tired of hearing "Ooooh Diann, beautiful Big honkin' flower you got there!". I swear I was going to save that flower and give it to him for Christmas! LOL

Anyway, here is the vase and flower

Then I prettied it up for the bathroom. I will probably redo this vase many, many times in the future! LOL

And here are some other random pretty sparklies in this bathroom.
