“Bubbly baths” and pillows…

Now what’s a bathroom without a pillow…

We place benches, and ottomans, and other seating in the bathroom….

Why not a pillow?….

I have always had some type of seating in my bathroom…

…it’s a great place to throw your clothes over the chair…to sit and tie your shoes…to sit and watch your
…grandchild take a “bubbly bath” and make soapy beards..and bubbly castles…

But when the hubster went to sit on the chair and found a pillow…

…he said, “now that’s getting a little too girlie”….Girlie??..I did not know pillows have a gender…

I wonder what he would say, if I put a pillow with the face of Mickey Mantle on the chair….

…he would most likely say, “now that’s a classy pillow…”


Pottery Barn pillow embellished with starfish…talk about “Easy Peasy”….


Sorry, no Mickey Mantle pillow here!!!








So where have you gone Joe DiMaggio..???…If found, you probably would have a place in the chair..

…by the “bubbly bath” tub…With adoring eyes of my hubby, saying, “now that’s a classy pillow”…..

    LOVE the pillow – and the entire bathroom. I love that bathroom so much that I had our master bedroom and bath painted the same color (S?W Silvermist). Love it!

  2. Love the pillow but that chair is fantastic I love the fabric.


  3. Girley pillow or not – I love it. Yea, I really do see pillows as being “she’s” – kinda like “ashtrays and toilets” and such are “he’s.” LOL I know its only two small starfish but it totally changes the look and feel of this pillow. Love this PB pillow, btw.

    Well, I love it on your chair, Shirley! I expect I would get a similar reaction from my husband!

  5. I love it! And your bathroom!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I love it!! and your bathroom!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. What do husbands know about cute throw pillows? And I love the addition of the starfish. It gives it the perfect “I belong near water and there is water in the bathroom” touch …

    Thanks for linking up with us!



  8. For some reason, guys just don’t get pillows. Kinda the same way they don’t understand that there are 1,462 shades of white ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love how you’ve embellished your cushion with the starfish. Just be careful where you sit! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. Shirley,

    I just got back from the dentist and you made me laugh! You and your gender pillow….okay….I am still laughing! Thanks for linking up and this wonderful post!


  10. I totally love your bathroom, so pretty, charming and elegant…and with the great pillow, perfect!! Thanks for coming by…some people don’t like their work to be copied, so hope he doesn’t see it. Although the roses are similar, I also added the hummingbirds myself to it. Enjoy the rest of your week.

  11. What a pretty bathroom…love the tub! The starfish added to the pillow is a cute idea.
    Hugs, Sherry

  12. That’s such a pretty pillow and is perfect in that chair! Your hubby’s comment is so funny. Those must be the little flowers you said you had been working on with your sewing group.

  13. The pillow is very pretty. Our bathroom is way to small for a chair or even a pillow for that matter. My husband jokes he know he is married with all the pillows in our house. I do not even think we have that many.

  14. LOL . . . girly . . . indeed! I love this and your bathroom is just stunning!

  15. Husband always thing we all have too many pillows. It makes the room and your pillow looks charming in your bath.

  16. It may have been easy, but it looks great!!

  17. You have the most beautiful bathroom! If I had a big bathroom like that, I’d add a pretty french style chair and pillow to it too! I really love your tub too! Cute idea to add starfish to the pillow.

  18. Husbands and pretty pillows usually don’t mix well — I just ignore the grumbling. ๐Ÿ™‚ Gorgeous bathroom and that pillow is right at home!

  19. This is my first time visiting your blog and I have to say I have enjoyed it very much. I peeked at several of your posts and found lots of pretty things to admire. The pillow in this post is so cute with the starfish attached. I really like the colors in the room, too. I also love your dining room with it’s sunny color. You have created a lovely cozy home.———Shannon

  20. Shirley I LOVE that pillow and your entire bathroom for that matter! Where did you find the beautiful vanity mirrors??
