I have this beautiful vintage cupboard in my main floor bath that was a built-in in its former life. Its like it was made for my current home and as the seasons change, so does its contents. It houses many of my favorite vintage pieces.
The hands on top that might hold rings or other things at Christmas time holds a linen poinsettia, along with a vintage ornament.
Alongside the hands display is a vintage scale. You know me and my scales. They are a love of mine.
A top the vintage scale youll find a brown transferware commode which holds a new, but old looking bottle brush tree. And the sign? Well you always have room for some humor, especially in the bathroom!
Inside the cupboard houses more vintage goodies. Another piece of my transferware this time holds some rock salt to mimic snow and another vintage looking tree. It sits a top another project of mine. The corbal was simply stenciled and a key added. The patina is just natural perfection.
You also find this sweel little glittery deer. Its displaying another little ornament. The picture in the back is entitled Lost in reference to the parable of the lost sheep. And again another piece of transferware.
And of course another scale. You may notice my colorway is pretty neutral. That way I can transition into winter from Christmas with ease.
No detail is spared. Even the latch has a little bobble on it.
Another little bit of bathroom humor. No need for an explanation....
And it all comes together to add a little bit of festivity even in the water closet :-)

If you know me, most of my home is decorated to the 9's for Christmas. Even my main floor bath has been holly-fied. Okay, maybe that's not a word, but anyway. I get so wrapped up in the Christmas spirit, not one room is without Christmas-filled with decorations. And I certainly didn't want the bathroom to feel leftout, now do I?
