Day 3 - Simple Decorations

On Monday I was visiting Kimba@A Soft Place To Land and her post was about decorating your potty of all things - lol. But, as soon as I saw it I thought "Kimba's a genius!!" Almost every day within my home someone is yelling out "I need tissue!" So, Kimba's idea simplified my world and added a cute touch to my very bare bathroom.

We took a wicker basket, added some colorful ribbon and our toilet paper found a new home. No one will have to yell out anymore and that makes me Extremely Happy!

Thank You Kimba!!!

The beautiful Jamie@Starshyne Productions asks:
What do you wish to savor?

I'll be traveling home to New Orleans next week, so
I wish to savor the home cooking of my family.
There are many great new things I've tried since moving to Texas,
but NOTHING compares to the food of the Bayou.

Red Beans & Rice, Gumbo, Crawfish Etouffe, Smothered Okra, Blackened Catfish.
And for my sweet tooth - Pecan Candy, Snowballs, and of course King Cake.


  1. Have a wonderful time in the loving arms of family and 'home'!

    As Our Tabitha wishes for herself, so I lovingly and with intention wish for her also.

    I'll be waiting for all the stories you come back with after your visit!

    I smiled when I saw your bathroom solution...I've been doing that for a few years now -- a lovely wicker basket on the tank lid...now if I could just teach these boys of mine to add more tissue to the basket when they've taken out the last roll!! lol!!
