~Angel Bathroom and Begonias~

Hi Everyone, 
It's a rainy day in Northern California and, I've been inside the house doing a little redo in the guest bathroom.  To See Guest Bathroom  remodel post in April 2010 go to   'Angel Bathroom'


This is my story and I'm sticking to it.  I was raised in Santa Clara Valley. Wonderful climate to grow Tuberous begonias.  Begonias grow even better in the Santa Cruz area on the Pacific coastline. Well, I have tried to grow begonias every summer in our patio for years and, it's either to hot or something...
I was watching Martha Stewart one day and a gardener was showing begonias.  Beautiful begonias, just the kind I would love to grow.  Martha asked her where did she grow her begonias?  She said "In my bathroom" at last the answer to my prayers.  
And now I have begonias growing in my bathroom. 
I'm hopeful this idea will work. 


Since I grow lavender and love angels I used my favorite things in the 2010 remodel bathroom


Out with the Lavender and in with the Yellow Begonias.  I bought a large yellow begonia at Lowe's last weekend and, when I got home and looked at the plant closer I found there were three separate plants in the container. Yip-Skip...  I replanted them and put two in the bathroom and one on the living room coffee table.
I also painted two Terra Cotta angel pots so the yellow plants would really pop in the off-white pots.
I'm also looking for an off-white curtain for the window to accent the new vintage looking lace towels I fell in love with at TM.  When I find the curtain I will share with you another look and, we'll see how the begonias are fairing in the guest bathroom.


I still have the same wall decor, but peach is history.

Begonias love moist soil , and humid air.

I love to accessorize my etagere 


I made some bath salts and I found a darling demitasse cup at the GW for .49 cents.


My dream is to have the begonia cascading down over the shelf and bloom and bloom and bloom. 

~As the angels rest~

My sweet angel night light has a soft gentle glow to help guide my guests during the early morning hours.

Well off I go to do some more crafty things while it's still raining outside.  
I love to make mosaics and this one is great with the bright yellow and the soft off-white details.

  1. Dear Betty..what a perfectly lovely bathroom. The colors are exactly what I am loving this year. I admit to changing from year to year and season to season. You made your own bath crystals?? How wonderful. I have never taken on such a task! And that tiny little cup to go into the jar? Perfection!!
    Have a wonderful rest of the weekend!
