Mother's Day already?

For Mother's Day I was going to ask for some updates that I had been planning for my little bathroom. But, my husband has decided to do them now because come May he will be knee deep in planting his award winning dahlia garden. So here are the new fixtures. The new cabinet came last year. 

This , however is the star. My little chandelier. It is so perfect for this small bath. I hadn't even thought of a chandy. I was picking out standard, wall mounted lights, and husband mentioned something about a chandelier. I could have kissed him right there in Lowe's. Why I didn't of it myself is a mystery. I was so stuck in a decorating rut....chandeliers for the dining room, wall pendant for the bath. Now I want to put them everywhere!  Now what should I ask for for my birthday.......?

Ooooooooh, Karen, I've loving it! I don't think I could get one in my bathroom though. I just discovered I have an old gold one up in the garage attic that I'm going to repaint and put in the family room!

I adore your chandelier! I need to find one for my studio, would never have thought of Lowe's....thanks for visiting my blog and for leaving a sweet comment.
And yes, a feather tree would definitely qualify as a great "find"!

The chandelier looks wonderful...it matches so well with your new faucets.

Oh it is a little cutie, isn't it? I just love it. Love the faucets too. I have something similar. Love that dark color contrasted with the lighter sink. I love your little floor lamp too. Those flowers are just beautiful.

Hi, Karen! Thanks so much for the visit and for adding me to your bloglist--I thought you were already on mine, and tried to just add you again, and it won't let me! I'll try again later...

Your bathroom is going to be stunning, love the new lighting! What a sweet guy to suggest it.

Karen,
The obvious answer to your birthday gift query is... a chandelier for the master bedroom. With a dimmer, of course.

Your little bath looks so luxurious.

I remade a chandelier for my kitchen table last year. I'm itching to find another one to re-do.

Oh, it looks lovely, and any man who would suggest a chandelier in the bathroom is a keeper!
