The other day I was sitting out under the pergola. I glanced over at our pondless waterfall and noticed that a Robin had landed on one of the rocks.
The next thing I knew the cute thing started taking a bath.
It was so fun to watch as he splashed around and totally covered himself in water.
Then he hopped back up on the rock and began drying himself. He would puff up and shake and then rub his head over his breast. I just kept snap, snap, snapping pics. Dummy me, afterwards I thought, “why didn’t I video it”. It really was so fun to watch
It was clear to me that this little birdie enjoys his bath as much as this gal does.
Yes, I take a bubble every night. Just seems to relax me and I sleep much better.
I thought I would share my birdie bath with you. Now, it wouldn’t be a birdie bath without a few birdie items. These two small windows are above the mirror.
They are filled with a few vintage and new treasures. My framed nest, a cute white pitcher, sweet tins with birds and French graphics, a few vintage bottles, and one old talcum powder tin.
These are housed on the ledge at the back of my jetted tub.
I bought this garland one Christmas to hang over the tub. I hung glittery stars down from it. I decided that I liked it so much that I ended up leaving it up.
I found the heart mirror turned tray at the D.I. I filled it with thrift items. The old shaker holds baby powder, a blondes best friend. the miniature turquoise manicure set I bought at an estate sale. I thought it was so cute. Blue Waltz perfume brings back memories. I remember walking to Ben Franklins to buy me a bottle when I was in 6th grade.
Doesn’t this look so old fashioned?
In the commode room I have a shelf with more treasures. An old curling iron and bobbies. A girls gotta look her best.
The darling little wire birdcage I bought at a gift shop in WI. It’s just mini and I have it hanging from my towel bar.
This birdcage sits on the floor by the toilet. Always planned on hanging from a hook in the corner of the room. Ah, that was over 2 years ago. lol!
My friend, Ann gave me this cute bird filled with bath salts.
Décor on top of cabinets.
Instead of curtains, a simple postcard valance.
I know that’s a whole lot of bird items. Like my 11 year old grand daughter, Jordyn said, “Grandma, if you have a theme you go all out”. Gotta admit, the girl knows what she’s talkin about.
I will be sharing my birdie bath with:
