The Library

Just a couple of photos of our tiny "library". You know, the "library". There ARE books in there...okay, the *powder room*. No! It is the LOO! Just off the living room, the little spot you go yourself. I wanted to show you the most precious gift I received from our Cassie. Cassie is one of the most generous women, talented, creative, lovely and funny. She also has glorious flea market treasures you can buy via her web space. Stop by and visit her if you have yet to do so. Her sweet Mom has recently been ill so I know Cassie would appreciate your prayers too.
Doesn't this sweet tin make you smile? Grace has named the dog "Princess" so what better spot to place her than next to a painting of a very young Queen Victoria. Doesn't every loo need a painting of a Queen? And a dog named Princess? Thank you so much Cassie. You are a sweetheart!
Isn't this bunny fingertip towel precious? It came from the sweet hands of Kari and Kijsa and if you do not know about their shop and art and *fantabulous* creations, hop straight on over and see! Each piece they make is as delightful as they themselves are! Thank you Kari and Kijsa! Now, unfortunately, I do not have a fireplace in my Loo Library (if there was room, I would so put one in there!) so we are now back in the living room. I wanted you to meet Beau. Beau is a creation from Donna. Is he not scrumptious? Donna has the most delicious site and an *Etsy* site as well. Do hop over to see the wonderful work that she and her husband create! This was a Beau I received just prior to Valentine's day but he is too special to box away until next year. He remains out, in a little nest, wearing his proverbial heart on his sleeve. Dear Beau....dear, dear Donna! It is raining, no, pouring again today. Poor Kipper may soon reach maximum capacity as he refuses to *go* outside. How I wish he could use our library! Tonight we are off to the Schuster Center to see Michael Flatley's "Lord of the Dance". I saw it 4 years ago and it was spellbinding. I am excited to share this with Grace, Mom and 2 of my buddies. Stay well, happy and safe. See you soon....
Love and Hugs, Susie Q

I think you need a 2nd house just for decorating. Because you're good. What an "eye" for the things that go so well together. Love the bunny fingertip towel. Love.

Cherdecor said...

I love your bunny finger tip towel! I ordered wooden eggs and nests from Kari &Kijsa and am looking forward to receiving them soon. I LOVE their art!

I love all the bunnies and that song really made me smile! I don't always have my sound glad I did today.

Thanks for stopping by my little store :-) There will be a little something extra in your box.

Hi Susie Q!!
Sorry it's been so long since I've been by, but I'm sure you understand why. Love your touches of spring and Easter here and there. What a cute song. I'll be humming that all night.

Simply Heart And Home said...

A blessed first day of Spring to you!

Janet said...

Enjoy Michael Flatley tonight! I know you "girls" will have a great time. As Bob says to me when I go out with my friends, "try not to get arrested". Such a funny man ;)

Naturegirl said...

Lovely pieces in your "special librarY" all created by gifted hands! Nice idea to make a little library in the powder room! sunkissed in Arizona NG

Forgive me for not coming by often but when vacationing one gets back from daily outings the body is too tired to sit a the Pc...I visit early in the a.m. before my tour guide awakes.

Melissa said...

I love your loo! I want a small lamp for mine - I think the light makes it cozier at night - but it'll have to be battery operated, as the electrical outlet in that room only works when the light switch is on!

Donna said...

Love all your pretty treasures! I'm off to check the other links now.

Hi Sue :)

First in reply to my post, let me just say that it took 2 other husbands that did not love me to find one that did! LOL

Second... all those treasures are adorable!! I have yet to go over to Kari and Kijsa blog, but I think I will now ;)

Have a great time at the show!!

Big hugs,
Rue :)
