Our Half Bathroom Renovation Details

1960's rancher half bath reno. An ugly duckling turned into a swan! Love it. Postcards from the Ridge

When you buy a 1960's ranch home, sometimes there are undesirable relics leftover from the past that come with it. But hopefully, eventually, you can say goodbye to those unwanted remnants and replace them with modern day elements. Such was the case with our ugly duckling half bathroom that we finally updated a few months back after 8 1/2 years of living with it. I'm sharing all of the details today.

Hello, Yellow Tulips

Yellow tulips in a white ironstone pitcher. Postcards from the Ridge.

I love it when there are pretty flowers in the sale bucket at the grocery store, It's such a fun and inexpensive way to brighten up the house. I snagged these tulips yesterday and brought them home and put them in one of my white ironstone pitchers.

Milk Glass and Mini Boxwood Wreaths for Valentine's Day

Pretty milk glass vases with carnations. So simple but so pretty. - Postcards from the Ridge

We've had such a beautiful weekend here. It really makes me want spring to get here quickly! It inspired me to pick up some flowers from the grocery store and pop them into my milk glass vases. Which inspired me to put out a few little valentine's decorations. I'm sharing mostly pictures today because the flowers are so pretty that a wordy post isn't necessary. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words!

It graces the kitchen in multiple ways. And it has even snuck into our coat closet in a very helpful manner. Today I'm sharing some of the red accents in our house along with a collage of the most fun red items anywhere and ideas for using it in your decor.
