Starry Night

So I have this dilemma, I always want to keep my bathroom window shade up because I love the natural light while I'm taking a shower...
1
but I don't want to give my neighbors behind my building a free peep show... if you know what I mean.
2
So I came up with an idea to use my star punch to cut out pretty stars all over the shade.
3
Now I can keep my shade down and still have natural light.
4
And surprisingly it looks even prettier and whimsical at night!
5
Who knew the bathroom could be such a magical place?

There's something about bright colors that brings joy. We have a beautiful world, don't we? Thanks for sharing that beauty. I live in the Marshall Islands right now and I love looking at all the bright blues and greens.

Keep up the good work!

Another fan here... coming out of my lurking corner to say that now you've got me thinking how interesting it would be to change the colour of the bulb every now and again and check its effect with this lovely curtain.

I was having stupid jealous worries over love things and there was an intense dark cloud gathering on top of my head, but looking through your latest posts made it vanish away like there was never a sign of it. Sun shines and so do you, thanks so much for this life-galoring blog and keep up your lovely work girl!

Such a sweet idea, particularly lovely at night.

TaraChameleon said...

this may be a stupid question, but what is your window shade made out of? surely its not made out of fabric is it?

Lia said...

i'm new to your blog and now i have so many things i have to do: leave cute notes around, buy a bubble machine, etc.

its awesome.
