I love it when a plan comes together! I have wanted to redo a little nook in my bathroom for awhile and have been “formulating” ideas for awhile. Along with the formulating included acquisitions. Of course. Always the shopper. I had an idea to turn my little corner of the master bath into my personal beach retreat. I love the beach. I love all things associated with the beach. The sun. The sounds. The birds. The smells . The feel of the sand. My favorite memories are associated with beaches.
So project bathroom redo finally happened this week. Primarily put on hold because I had purchased a decorative boat in Ohio and had to get it back to Iowa which I did last week. Of course I found out that our Hobby Lobby here which is literally out my front door had the exact thing on clearance just like the one in Ohio. I guess my little boat is more well traveled now!
The shells are a collection from years of collecting and represent places that I have most likely forgotten. Some came from our recent trips to South Padre Island, Jacksonville Beach, Wilmington and the Bahamas. When I relax in my tub now I will remember fondly.
I admitted to a fellow blogger that I love all things beach except the water. I blame it on a swim teacher I had when I was little …..one of those experiences that my all too overly sensitive self magnified over the years. I don’t like water on my face. Never have. Face the opposite way in the shower to avoid it. I know it is irrational and ridiculous and as I told my friend I have no plan as of today to overcome that ridiculousness but who knows. Maybe I will grow up and face it someday. There is still time.
So here is my little escape. Do you have one and if so what does it say to you when you are there? Escape? Tranquility? Calm? Memories? Would love to hear.
