Spring Cleaning

If you're here from Mrs. G's, welcome!

I had intended to clean out my sewing/crafts room but I made no next to none nada zilch zippo very little insignificant progress on that.

However, the bathroom is done! Twenty-one years ago, our upstairs bath looked like this. (The other baths were worse.)

We stripped off the floral paper and, like an archaeological dig, found another layer underneath. We painted most of the room white and put up some 1989 wallpaper on the main wall. Would you believe, 20 years later I still have no picture of it? Or a picture of the hideous floor? A big chunk of it had been cut out and sloppily put back in again. It used to drive me crazy when I gave the boys baths.

Anyway, I have a thing for new toilets. Water-saving, easy-to-clean toilets. The other toilets in the house had been replaced, so I begged for one last new toilet for Mother's Day. And a new floor.

Here it is, in all it's PEZ decorated glory.

While a bathroom may not be the heart of the home, it is certainly a vital organ!

That looks amazing compared to the first picture of it! Well done!

Oh Mooselet, we did! And there were 2 other bathrooms just as bad, if not worse.
