~A little romance in the bathroom ~

A little romantic decor in the powder room is always nice...
Candles....
plants....
Flowers are ALWAYS nice.....
FRESH ones are BEST....
Pretty fauxs are Second BEST....:)

 Pretty perfume bottles on a pretty shelf......
 Pretty words to live by......
NOW,
completely RANDOM.....

 My DIET CRAZED MIND sees THIS in my dreams.....
bwaaaaaaaa   :)
STRAWBERRY box cake mix, adding teaspoon vanilla, cook as directed on box
Creamy Cream Cheese Icing, tinted a romantic PINK 
Soft cream cheese with a little powdered sugar and a little bit of milk,
mixed, with love, until spreadable...
ENJOY a slice with THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE. 
♥ ♥ ♥ 
YA'LL HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND.... 
(I'm getting to spend time with grands, so will see ya on Monday)

Connie said...

Yuuuummmm, girl! I love cake but coconut cream pie is my favorite dessert.

I thought romance started in the bedroom, not the bath. Hmmmmm, I don't think I'll mention this to Love Bunny....

I LOVE the birds on branches candle thingie in the bathroom!

I tried that soup diet ONCE - - - and after all those days of eating that soup till I thought I'd BARF, I only lost a couple of pounds.

So not worth it for ME - - - I decided I can either be skinny again and MISERABLE, or stay the size I now am and be HAPPY. I chose happy.

BUT - - - neither hubs nor myself have been told to lose weight for our health, so there's the difference. I believe you said at the start of all this that it was for your hub's health sake.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Now you need to quit having sweet dreams. Get it? Sweet dreams? You are sugar deprived you poor thing. Enjoy the grands. Mine are coming next weekend.

Vee said...

Stop dreaming about food if at all possible. You'll go crazy. How's the soup going? I bet you've lost weight already.

Lovely images...I see you skipped on back to good old Photoscape. I love them.

Have a grand weekend with the grands!

Marydon said...

Forget all the glitz & glam ... I just baked the Better Than Sex Cake today, yum!, worth every single morsel! But this I've gotta try.
Have a beautiful weekend ~

Happy Pink Saturday BJ Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share today. I love all the little touches you add about your home. I could stroll for hours just looking and dreaming and making notations in my mind for little things I might like to try.

The cake sounds delish, and I am definitely going to give this one a try.

Have a wonderful weekend with the grands sweet friend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

kitty said...

Happy PS, BJ! I loved the special touches in your pretty bathroom, but that cake...I want a bite right now!!!!

Biddy Fraser said...

Oh, that strawberry box cake - looks delicious! I try not to diet - having wasted too much time on that sort of thing when I was younger, but when ever I do try to drop a few pounds I definitely try to avoid lovely cakes. I know it's been said before, but why are all the scrumptious things so full of calories!!?

Mary said...

What a beautiful post, bj. You asked about sugar substitutes. I've never tried to use them but I would certainly think they could be used. There is no baking involved. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Linda Chapman said...

But, of COURSE!!!

Our choice of fragrances are similar.

I'm a shower girl......would you believe Louis Dean is the one who takes long hot bubble baths? I have been known to light candles in there for him sometimes!

Michele said...

that is officially the presttiest bathroom ever! i want it! thanks for your beautiful photos and a happy pink saturday to you. xo

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

forget the flowers! I'll take the cake! HPS BJ. Hope you are having a great weekend with the younguns.

I could get into that cabbage soup. I love low fat soups. That's a good thing about winter...eating all those healthy delicious soups. I put cabbage in several of the soups I make. BUT, I can see me now, telling Bobby G. the only thing he gets for a week is soup. No way...not happening. LOL

Ann said...

It's all very beautiful!

Kelly said...

Mmmm..that cake looks yummy!!!

Sylvia K said...

Lovely shadow shots for the day and I love the candle holder! That cake does indeed look yummy! Hope you're enjoying a great weekend!!

Sylvia

Rita said...

Great minds; I just added a vase with some beautiful silk roses in my bathroom. Wishing you a great weekend. Good luck with that cabbage diet.
Rita

Joan said...

The French Hutch said...

I prefer showers but on occasions love a bath in the tub. When I do out come the candles. Just makes the bath so luxurious. Dear girl, I think you have having visions of "sugarplums." Don't beat yourself up and hang in there!

Ralph said...

The candelabra is my favorite piece here - the feeling is that I see a tree, birds and nests of romantic flame. In a powder room - the charm her is undeniable, a room to visit even if not for necessary reasons. A place to relax of beauty...

Shug said...

Sure do like that cake recipe...I used to make it all the time, but for some reason, it has been a year or so since I've brought out the ol' recipe...
Looks great around your place...stick to that diet!
hugs

Theresa said...

Oh so pretty! Yummy cake, I believe I will have a chunk of that too;). Enjoy your time with the Grands! Hugs

Gypsy Heart said...

I love all your special touches in the bath. I'm with you on all!

I admire you doing the cabbage diet. I just cannot eat the same thing over & over. You are strong ~ I know you're going to rock it!

Love the bathroom BJ. For a minute I thought you were enjoying the cake in the bathtub! Wouldn't that be fun! Happy Pink Saturday.

Designs By Pinky said...

My hubby did the cabbage soup diet once when I was away with girlfriends. He lost 8 lbs. in about 5 days, but then couldn't face another day of SOUP!!!!!!!! I admire you, I don't think I could do it. Hang in there and have fun with the grands!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! XO, Pinky

Gemma Wiseman said...

Lovely touches of ethereal beauty! Like a sweet romance!

chubskulit said...

A romantic setting! Thanks for your contribution to SSS2!

Joy and Shadow, have a blessed Sunday!

Sarah said...

Gorgeous! Don't even think about that strawberry cake. You've got cabbage soup to eat! ;-)

Pondside said...

I don't think there's a room in a house that wouldn't benefit from some 'prettifying'.
Step away from that cake daydream, BJ! Focus on the cabbage - after all, cabbage is vaguely rose-shaped!

Chenille Cottage said...

Such a peaceful setting to soak for a while...and, especially, to the flickering of soft candle light! Calgon....Take me away!
Hugs,

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Gotta chuckle at your "dream"comment. I always say "some women dream about Bruce Willis, me it's cupcakes"... guess that's better than dreaming about work though:@)

Witha said...

Surely a romantic and lovely bathroom you have!

bj Hi!
Love your romantic decor in the powder room. Though I would have to have the candle holder up high so I don't knock it over and burn down the house. I just burned my self on a metal candle holder. I'm clumsy.
