~Sister's House-Part Two~

Margo and David have the "Best" Master Bathroom ever!. It's has a spa tub, T.V, fireplace, shower, double sinks and a potty with a room of it's own. Also lots of storage. With a bathroom like this who needs to go out to a SPA.

I love the ceramic fishes all lined up in a row. The colors are so tropical. Did you see Margo's touch of Orange. (She love's her Orange).
The Master Bedroom to me is very Bohemian. Margo used vinyl stencils on the wardrobe mirror's "Together a great place to be", so very true.
Silk drapes in brown and cream.
The wall medallion Margo made by using a stencil and spackle.
This is a beautiful lamp statue that sits on top of the dresser.

And for love of retro, a lava lamp!.
Margo's Office is a quite place for her, she is working on her Master's degree and spends many, many hours in here. So of course you have to have the things you love surrounding you.
In the Office there is a vintage dresser that Margo painted white and then painted the flowers of course orange with the accents in green. I love this dresser. The flowers remind me of 1970. There I go again aging myself "smiling". Now for the little girl in all of us, there are just some things we cling to from our childhood and my sister loves her troll dolls!
And Gumby!!!! I loved Gumby too.
Margo also collects poodle figurines. Here are just a few.

Now for the Laundry room, another collection of Margo's is her 1950's goldfish. They are all lined up behind the washer and dryer, I hope they don't swim away.. I think they are just the cutest!


Do you remember the 1964 movie "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" with Don Knotts, I know I'm showing my age. But doesn't this little green fish with the top hat remind you of him?. I love this little guy he is just soooo cute!
Until we meet again, keep well and "Remember the days blessings and forget the days troubles"
Hugs and Smile~Elizabeth

Ok , I am going to her house for my bath!! OH so nice!! I had to laugh at the trolls--I think I still have some of those. Everyone was collecting them when I was a kid. I even knitted clothing for them! ha!!

Wow! What a nice place to visit..say..for a weekend? :) Do you think they would mind? I would be quiet as a mouse..:)

Now I'll show my age..I had children that enjoyed that movie very much! I would love to see it again myself. I LOVED Don Knotts.

Ms. Bake-it said...

Oh wow! What an awesome bathroom. I would not want the TV, but love the fireplace! I can see myself soaking in a hot bath with a book and glass of wine with a fire burning... I love the fish collection and I agree, the little green fish with the top hat does indeed remind me of Mr. Limpet! Makes me want to see it again. Too cute.

Thank you for sharing your sister's fabulous house with us!

Beautiful! The spackle stencil thing is the coolest ever. Am going to have to 'borrow' that idea. Of course I will give your sister her props.

Beverly said...

Loved taking the tour of your sisters house. She has quite the touch for an ecclectic decor. I agree, she makes it all come together. Not to age myself either, but much of her decor brings back memories of the era I was married in. Thanks for the tour.

Have a great day!

Your sis' house is so much fun! She's quite eclectic, huh? Me too!
Everything except contemporary, though! That bathroom is cool!

I scrolled back to see what I've missed! Your afghans, blankies, hats and scarves are so LOVELY!! And made with love I'm sure! You have such a sweet, giving heart!
