the lovely fabric floral bag in the above photo (for sale @ messy karen's Etsy shop along w/others - this bag is available for $8) - arrived from messy karen one day in my mail by surpirse! there's a lot of, let's say... my favorite collection of pam's favorite stuff within this special corner of my bathroom! as soon as i saw it i knew where it would live for a little while . . . as i like to move stuff around . . . it's been there since late spring. i love to hang beautiful & interesting stuff all over the house but especially enjoy decorating knobs & any hooks, etc. . this umbrella decoration was sold as a yard/garden ornament & is made of cast iron - really heavy - i loved it in my bathroom & hang stuff off it all the time. holidays are often expressed there as well - just a little something to bring the holiday into the bath!
messy karen, she is such a sweety, that even thou i didn't win any of frequent her give-a-ways, she decided i was deserving of a gift anyway! she loaded it w/wonderful goodies . . . candies, cool pencil w/a gem tip w/hand made case, cookies made from scratch, an x-tra bag, starbuck's gum, & an organic sweetner - wow, yes all in her wonderful gift bag! i have alrady passed on the x-tra bag to an old friend who recently was @ the house for a BBQ. she had complimented the one hanging in the bathroom earlier & later i gave her my x-tra! she LOVED it & i LOVE mine toooooo! thanks again messy karen xxoo.
