This week FLEW. I wasn't sure if I would make our Monday deadline. We just got back from a beautiful reception in which we were able to see many family members we had not seen in years. It was wonderful. I didn't even make it home in time for golden hour and so these images may not be my favorite but they are of my favorite newly acquired clawfoot tub...minus the feet;) Our Aunt and Uncle are moving up north and they decided not to take their clawfoot planter box with them. I offered to take it and they accepted! I have dreamed of having a clawfoot tub since we bought our home 19 years ago. I had a few dream requirements. Hardwood floors (check) fireplace (added) front porch (check) and a clawfoot tub! I can now check off clawfoot tub and while it's not traditionally in our bathroom, it checks off my other dream....bathing under the moon! This weekend we painted her yellow and placed her where I can eventually take a bath under the moon and stars. I have yet to bathe in her but motorcycle man has plans to run a hose from the hot water heater into the tub. I can hardly wait. I know bathing this way will be a lot of work so I don't plan to make a habit of it, however once a month sounds doable and like a lovely treat. It's far from perfect, I scrubbed and scrubbed and it still has some stains but it's clean, good and clean. It has rust spots and the cast iron outside was rusty but the yellow paint gave it new life. I'm really happy with how it came out and I can't wait to soak in it. Below are a few details of this well made, super heavy cast iron addition. I crack myself up because the last really big piece of furniture Aunt Lynn gave us I painted yellow as well! I must love YELLOW. It was the double sided bookcase from her school library. The pretty heart made of twigs also used to belong to Aunt Lynn and Uncle Don. They did a lot of simplifying in their big move and as you can see, we benefited from that. I just want to wrap up by saying, never give up on your dreams no mater how big or small! Next...dutch door! I'm always excited to see what my friend and creative partner Christina is up to:) Go take a peek!
