I’m really stretching it to link this post to Seasonal Sundays. I’m using the reasoning that Spring is a good time for a ride in a hot air balloon. The ceiling over our bathtub is supposed to look like clouds in the sky.
Our new chandelier over the tub reminds me of a hot air balloon floating through the sky.
It was hard to get clear photos, because the sun was really shining through those windows.
I liked the chandelier that was over the tub before, but I love how whimsical the new chandelier feels. The photo below was in my previous bathroom post.
If you read my previous post (years ago) about my bathroom, you’ll already know a little about the window coverings on these windows. I’m going to repeat the story for those who may be new to my bathroom.
That is a painted window shade in the middle window. When I bought it from an antique store (marked lower than most plain window shades-probably because nobody else wanted it), I had no place to hang it, but I thought I could find a place. Five years later, when we moved to a different house, the window shade happened to fit this window. So, the hot air balloon is flying over what (per The Tablescaper) is Venice, Italy. The stained glass pieces in the other two windows were found a couple of years after we had moved into this house. My sweetheart and I went to an antique store, only to find that it was closed. These two stained glass panels were in the window of the store. I told my husband I thought they would fit on these two windows, and that I wanted to measure the windows over the bathtub and come back some day to measure and price those panels. My sweetheart only listens to about one-fourth of what I say. (I can’t really blame him. I talk a LOT!) That Christmas, he gifted me with the stained glass windows. When I opened them, I asked, “oh, you measured, and they will fit?” He said, “no, I thought you told me you knew they would fit!” Fortunately, they did fit.
We refer to our shower as the cave. I did not want to have a shower door to clean, so our shower heads are far enough into the shower that we don’t need a shower door.
Our bathroom is filled with faux views. This is another “window” hanging in our bathroom. We have around the world views from our bathroom windows!
