Hallway Bathroom - Georgianna Lane Photography

This post is a continuation of my last post on our hallway bathroom.  This time
around I am sharing the artwork that I have on the wall in the bathroom.

If you have never heard of Georgianna Lane...well, where have you been?  LOL!
I am absolutely hooked on her work.  She is a professional photographer and
takes the most amazing snapshots that you have ever seen.  Here is a link
to her fabulous Etsy shop...and no, she doesn't know I'm doing this!  ;)

These pictures are not the greatest quality due to having no natural light
in the room so bear with me!  You'll get the idea I hope!

I have purchased several pictures from "G" over the years and bought six
of them awhile back to go in my bathroom.  I wanted a clean, pretty look
so I framed them in these simple clip frames with glass fronts.

This one is gorgeous - you can't go wrong with roses!

This is one of my favorites!  I love this statue and I was silly enough to recently
pass up a statue like this one in one of my favorite Etsy shops.  DUMB!

I love these two as well...sorry about the glare on these two!  The above one
is of a gorgeous pink chandelier and you may have noticed this one floating
around on Pinterest and all over the web.  It's such a beautiful photograph.
Now you know where you can get one for yourself!

Isn't that vintage typewriter photo delicious!  Love it!

This is a spectacular picture as well and if my memory serves me correctly, I
believe that it is taken at Monet's estate in France.  Luckily for us, one of
Georgianna's favorite places to photograph in the world is Paris!  Her
collection of Paris and French photographs is quite extensive!  She has a
second Etsy shop that is filled with Paris photographs plus other photographs
from around the world.  Here is the link for you...

Here is the last one that I will show you of a spectacular rose tree!

If you want to see more of Georgianna's beautiful photograhy or have some
of them for your own home, then be sure to click on the links in this post to
visit both of her shops.  Tell her I sent you, or not, LOL!, but just make sure
that you run over there to see them for yourself!

  I promise that you'll be hooked!

Until next time,


Our Hallway Bathroom

I've been MIA these past few weeks...over three to be exact!  I always say
 that I only blog when I am inspired...it must be cabin fever...I haven't felt like
 blogging or working at all.  It seems as though spring may be on the way soon
though.  A glimpse of a few teeny tulips tops peeking out of the ground outside
of my front window gave me the little burst of cheer that I so desperately
needed!  Hasn't this been a long, cold winter...I sure think so!

Today I am going to share some pictures of our hallway bathroom.  Now I must
warn you that these pictures are NOT the best quality.  There is absolutely no
natural light in this room and if I use the flash then it's really a total disaster
so bear me with me, they are kind of yellow and sad..but you'll get the idea!

This bathroom has been painted several times.  It was white when I first moved in, then I painted it a cottage yellow, then it had wallpaper border along the top...it has changed many times.  Guess what...it's now back to white and I absolutely LOVE it!  Sometimes my decor takes a roundabout and ends up back where I started in the first place!  Life is like that!

So now it looks all fresh and clean!  I am looking at this picture above and I'm
wondering why I never have towels hanging there.  I always have a hand towel,
but never towels on that towel bar...hmmmm.  Anyway, that cute rose print on
the wall is from Ikea.  It is heavy paper that is stretched over a wooden frame.
I quite like it and I think that it only cost seven or eight dollars.  A real bargain!
The layered white ruffled shower curtain is from Victorian Trading Company.
They always have the prettiest accessories for your home.

These three pieces were picked up from Tai Pan Trading Company.  They are
supposed to be perfume decanters and the center one is a little holder of some
sort.  I love the aged mercury glass look and the little crown and rhinestone
accents.  They were really inexpensive...about four dollars each!

I admit it, I am abit of a statue nut!  I just can't resist a pretty, vintage statue!
This one was picked up at an auction several years ago and I remember that it
was really inexpensive...probably around $25 or so.

See, I told you...another statue, and on the same countertop no less.  It's really
quite ridiculous!  I do love this one though!  The hand painted rose flower bucket
is going to be coming up for sale really soon so watch my shop for it.  It is really
adorable and was painted years ago by Kim Ryan of Paris Rags.  She is a great artist!

I also love this perfume bottle!  It is one of those very large department
store sample bottles.  I have it filled with colored water.

Here is a better shot of the maiden statue.  Isn't she lovely!

These antique soap advertisement cards are perfect for a bathroom.

Here is another one...so adorable!

I hope you enjoyed my little tour.  My next post will continue on and I'll
show you the artwork on my bathroom walls.  They are by talented
photographer, Georgianna Lane Fine Art Photography...her work is spectacular!

Stay tuned!
