Gussy Sews Inspiration Workshop!

we have two bathrooms in our  house. i do love our master bath connected to our bedroom; the shower is my favorite shower in the history of ever. i realize it is quite silly to profess such adoration for a shower, however it has become my little sanctuary in the house. more of my favorite features of "my" bathroom as it is referred to, (our other bathroom is "rory's". note, separate bathrooms, key to happy relationship.) include, the big mirror and two glass vases that hold headbands and other various hair accessories that little miss s and i share.

i'm obsessed with turquoise lately. how much fun would it be to re-do a bathroom in turquoise? rory often makes fun of my penchant for bright colors, but i blame it on the fact i grew up during the 80's. and plus, life is too short to live in black & white.

a few bathrooms i adore:

a few pretty little touches that would be included in my dream turquoise bathroom:

this ruffle shower curtain made my heart skip a beat


these trinket boxes are too precious

i would probably paint them silver and put my jewelry in them for safekeeping!


these two prints from Target are what started this whole daydream
of a turquoise bathroom in the first place
how perfect are they?!

thanks so much to Maggie for starting this inspiration workshop series!
i'm head over heels!
(& apparently over zealous with the use of my exclamation points in this post. ha.)

one little item of business really quick, the Stella & Dot sale is on SALE from now until Monday night. every sale item is an extra 20% off! how exhilarating is this? pick up that piece you've been wanting because once sale items are gone, they will be discontinued and will not be available any longer. Because in our mirror, we see people better than they even see themselves. In our mirror, people look at themselves and say, “Wow.” It is with joy and love that we fulfill our mission to give every woman the means to style her own life. (a little taste of our manifesto)  
my three favorite necklaces are HEREHERE, and HERE. happy shopping and happy thursday!

my sweet rory cleaned the house while i was on a conference call last night.
this girl is taking a (much needed & much deserved) nap.
