The Guest Room Bath Changes and Day 99

While I was doing some things in the Guest Room Bath,

I realized that I did not show you some of the Guest Room Bath changes

that were done a few months ago! Better late than never!

I realized that, when I was removing many personal sized soap, shampoos, etc.

from 2 drawers in the vanity,

to accomplish my 99 items for donation or trash.

How to Create a Guest Bath Concierge

How to create a guest bath concierge?

why you use the Lady Baltimore, an NQV (Not Quite Vintage) overnight vanity suitcase/train case.

It was something that I always wanted as a child.

You know, for those sleepovers.

However, I never had one and usually placed my clothes in a tote bag

that was most likely made by my mom.

Simply Spring in the Guest Room

I have been busy “springifying” each room in my house . .

~ ~ and now the guest room is dressed for Spring.

Guest Room/Tole Trays

The first thing I did to “Springify” the room was to add these tole trays. .

~ ~ of great floral colors. . .

~ ~ ~ ~ they replaced my trio of fabric framed art.

Guest Room/Tole Trays

I really love how the tole trays blend so well with the bed frame and chandy.

Silver room plaque

So come on in and welcome to the “Housepitality Suite” !!

Guest Room

This room will be filled with company this weekend . .

~ ~ and we can all use a bit of Spring!

Guest Room Blanket Chest

Placed a Spring vignette on the blanket chest at the foot of the bed.

Filled the basket with things to read . . .

The vintage glove form is a gift from my sweet friend, Kristen.

Guest Room Night Stand

Yard Sale Treasures…and off and running to the Southern Bloggers Conference!!

Before I hit the road for a 40 minute drive to Raleigh…

… help coordinate and participate in the Southern Bloggers Conference

I want to share with you some treasures that I found:


A rattan tray table, a tole tray, a vintage paint by numbers painting, and two wall baskets!

All for a grand total of $13.00 !!!

Now I must say that the wicker wall baskets were free…from a friend that was moving…

…..she said it was an enticement to visit her…and I will be next week.

I found these treasures several weeks ago…

…..our neighborhood had a neighborhood-wide yard sale.


Our covenants mandate that we are not able to have individual yard sales.

…..only two neighborhood-wide yard sales a year.

In September over 40 homes “set up shop”….and I cruised the neighborhood…looking for treasures….

…..and I think I did very well!

I love the rattan/wicker tray table, but did not quite like the stain…

… I bought some Krylon paint.


You can see the leaves that have just started to fall…


I like the white finish….but did you notice something?….My hubby certainly did!

I forgot to lay a cloth on the ground….ooops!!….I was in a hurry!…


I was in a hurry as I still had to pack and do some prep for the Southern Bloggers Conference…


I placed the very newly painted table in the guest room….

Where Suzy from Worthing Court is staying in for the night…

… we will be leaving very early in the morning to go to the conference.


I like the table there…next to the chair…for cute bath items…




I love the way it turned out…and love the price tag of $4.00 from the yard sale….


Hope you like it and my guests too!!

I will be joining:

Kari, Laura J., Laura P., and Linda for the Krylon Paint Party!!
