It is hard to believe it is already Thursday.
This week is going by so fast!

I have been extremely busy around here, organizing closets, cleaning and sprucing up the house a little bit for the new year.

Last week, I took the master bathroom completely apart, cleaned everything in sight and put it back together again which it took me a good part of my day and in the process of doing that, I rearranged things a little different.

We have such long marble counters in there, I am always looking for a way to make them a little more appealing.

After everything was sparkling clean, I decided to add an old runner folded in half to the center of the counter space
 to add a little color to all that white.

Everything else is the same, I just moved things around and this is what I ended up with.

On the runner I have a basket with my daily skin care, a couple of small towels and a picture of my children that I already had on the counter. We took this picture at a beach in the South of Spain many, many years ago and it is one of my favorites.

 On each side of the left sink I placed my old glass jars and also a glass bowl with some natural dried orbs.

On the right side of the counter, I kept the same glass plate with the candle I already had.

And I moved the tiered basket to the far end corner of the right sink.
I also used just for fun one of the glass containers with the burlap rosette that I made last year to hold our hand soap.

I kept the area by the bathtub the same.

There is several changes we want to make to this bathroom, so may be this year 
we will get brave enough to tackle this project. 

 That's it for today. Moving on to the next room!

Enjoy the rest of your week and see you all soon!

  6. Maria Elena, we are both on the same page. I deep cleaned my master bath Monday and then my sewing room on Tuesday. Still need to do the closets in both. Today I did some service with friends and then went to lunch. Tomorrow I am going to paint an old desk. What's with us? Not a lazy bone in our bodies. lol! I really like the addition of the runner. Gave just a little touch of color. I love the burlap flower on the soap. I want to make some sometime. Maybe in between cleaning. lol!
