Working Hard, But Hardly Working...

Well, hello!  It is nice to be back.  I've been working hard as a substitute teacher, but I've been hardly working at Love and Life at Leadora.  However, while I've been away, MacGyver husband did install the chrome shower fixture...




It's looking a little bare without a shower curtain, but that will be coming soon.  I am thinking of buying a white one and sewing on a black ribbon accent or perhaps some white ruffles.  





I just love the shiny chrome.  Since this bathroom has no windows, I am trying to get as much shine as possible.  In fact, my oldest daughter calls this room "jenky" because it has no windows, my son says it has too much white, and my youngest can hardly wait to play waterworks and get water everywhere with the new attached sprayer!   Oh well...thank goodness I'm a substitute teacher and not their interior designer!

  3. Forget the kids, I think the shower would be a lot of fun for anyone. The rainshower head will feel so relaxing and the sprayer will get all that shampoo off in a hurry. I love the idea of ruffles on the shower curtain.

  8. Heather,
    My favorites were the red one and the one with the moon also. Subbing is not the easiest job to do! I was a teacher's assistant for 4 years, 4th and 5th grade and really enjoyed it. My sister is a first grade teacher in the "OC". I'm a shower girl so I love it! How fun to be under that rain head! Looking great, can't wait to see what curtain you choose.

  12. It looks so shiny and pretty! And that's what i need. I have the rainshower part, but I could use the sprayer to get the rest of the soap out of my hair. Best of both worlds.

  13. Hi Heather! Thank you for your sweet visit! Yes, I bought my bunnies at costco years ago too...and they are my favorite Easter decorations! I wondered if any of my blog buddies had them too :) Your new shower head is so cool! I love your idea of a white curtain with ruffles! Ruffles are ultra chic and all the rage!
    Best Wishes and Blessings,
    Amanda

  19. Love the new fixture! I substitute teaching too! Sure can throw off your schedule. For a while I was working every single day. Then it was hit and miss. It's picking up again but I am taking a break until after Spring Break.
    Have a great weekend!

  21. Your bathroom is really coming together. I bet you are just as excited to use it as the kids. A ruffled shower curtain sounds perfect.
    I taught so I can appreciate your schedule! Bless your heart!
    Have a great weekend!
