The house we just purchased was owned by an older couple. The wife was a painter and she added little things to almost every room in the house. Like this topiary that you see when you enter the second floor.
Or this dragonfly added over the doorway of the breakfast room leading into the kitchen. She also painted most of the ceilings and many walls, and doors, and trim, a very deep dark blue or brown. It's a major pain trying to cover it up. I may leave a few of her special touches but it's a bit over the top. We are in the process of changing many of the dark walls. We don't want to live in a cave!
This is my fancy new bathtub. Notice how it is out in the open? There are two large windows right next to it too.
And here is the clear glass shower. Can you see the glass door between the bathroom and the bedroom? These people obviously didn't have any hang-ups about nudity. Did I mention they were in their 70's?
Maybe it would be a little different if I didn't have kids, but when I take a bath, I hide behind the shower curtain. Usually the entire family, including both cats, will be in there with me. They just won't stay out. The shower curtain is the only thing keeping me sane! I need to think about this one.
My dad has always been into fish in a major way. When he moved into his apartment several years ago, he put this in my brother's shed. He tells me every time I see him that he wants me to have it. Soooo. Now that we have room, here it is. I will get measurements today and maybe Brenda can tell me how many gallons this thing holds and how heavy it will be. We may have to add extra support for it in the basement.
