A Winter Bath

Since we have been bombarded with fluffy white stuff,
I thought this post would be appropriate.

Some time before Christmas, I got it in my head that red would be a pretty color to introduce into my tiny blue cottage bathroom.  So began the search for a red shower curtain...

My first purchase was a lovely red & white toile curtain.  I loved the curtain, but the deep red with my blue walls just wasn't doing it for me.

It was a cheerful and happy red that I needed.

My second purchase was a red & white polka dotted curtain.  It certainly was cheerful and happy, but man it was just red overload!

One day, in early December, I was shopping in Kohls & spied the cutest snowmen shower curtain.  The snowmen were wearing red scarves.

Hmmm, I thought to myself. 
Perhaps I need to add just a touch of red instead of a full-on blow-out of red.

But wouldn't it be silly to buy a shower curtain just for Christmas?
Do I really want a themed bathroom?   

With closer observation, I noticed the snowmen weren't really Christmas-y snowmen, they were more Winter-y snowmen.  Along with the fact that Winter lasts until March (or April...or May...) in these parts,  I could use it well past Christmas.  Between the sale & coupon, it would only be $12.00 & change, so why not have a little fun?

Come take a look....

Are they cute or what?

Turns out that just a touch of red was the way to go.

My favorite shelf with a touch of snow & a touch of red.
Aaaah, I love it!

Have I ever told you how much I love red & white gingham?

And that, my friends, is my Winter bath!

Thanks for stopping by today.
I appreciate your visit oh so much!


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. When everyone wants winter to go away, you are bathing in it! That's why we love you! That shower curtain is the perfect splash!

  2. Snow,snow and more snow!!
    Hopefully this is the last big one!!
    Love the touches of red!!

  3. Gina - that bathroom is adorable! I cannot imagine anyone not liking gingham in any color, especially red!
    I would love a little snow - real or not. However, maybe, not as much as some of you are getting these days! Stay warm!

  4. I LOVE the touch of red with it! So classic looking.

  5. Your bathroom is great. I love the red bowl on the white shelf. It really pops when it is given prominence.

    I live in southern California so I can't picture winter until April. I am complaining that it is in the 50s lately and I am cold. If I did a blog post on that, I think all the comments would be "shut up and stop complaining".

  6. I love your adorable bathroom. Just a touch of red is what I like too, I like it as an accent not to dominate the room. Perfect shower curtain for the season. xo

  7. Absolutely love it! This is an adorable little room anyway, and the bits of red just look perfect!

  8. What a darling little bathroom that is! I think your snowman shower curtain is adorable and a perfect theme for all the storms on the east coast right now!

  9. Very pretty Gina!! Those snowmen are super cute and I love that shelf!

  10. Cute little snowmen! I love red master bathroom is white beadboard and HaPpY ReD! I'm always drawn to red...gingham too :)

  11. Perfect pops of red, Gina, and the blue in the shower curtain looks wonderful with your paint color! I love it!


  12. We are suppose to get some fluffy white stuff but it's not making me want to make my bathroom cute.


  13. Oh it looks so pretty-just the right amount of red!

  14. Red is my favorite color so of course, I love this! Your bathroom is gorgeous with the blue & white. I do agree that a touch is the best way to go here and you did it beautifully! So hope you enjoy it ~

    Hope you're safe & warm!

  15. Aha, the snowmen with red and shades of blues is perfect, I'm jealous. You couldn't have nailed it better girl. Love your bathroom, so refreshing. Everything on your shelf and other areas is perfect.
    Lots of snow where you live huh? We had lots too until last week then it warmed up, melted the snow and we now have a mud bog in yards. YUK. And a very dirty dogs feet when he comes in. It snowed early this a.m. but by afternoon it was all gone again, more mud. Give me the cold temps and snow please, so much cleaner and a happier dog. We have to keep old towels by doors and get ready to wet them to clean dogs feet and he hates it.
    Love gingham in room also, love gingham anywhere.

  16. I really wish I lived in the northeast so that I could experience some of this winter wonderland :)

  17. Gina, Who doesn't love snowmen? Too too cute and your bath room is just so fresh and sweet. Always nice seeing what you are up to! So creative. Blessings, L

  18. Ahhh your bathroom looks so adorable Gina. I hope that fluffy white stuff is gone, or does not stick around too long.
