The bathroom and bedroom complete the apartment tour.
The kids and I found these shelves at Fred Meyer, in a box. Thank goodness we have them, because the only storage that came in the bathroom is that narrow little shelf beneath the mirror. Cristina's mom Della gave us the lovely shower curtain, towels and rug--lots of stuff we already had ended up matching perfectly, like the silk flower arrangement on the toilet tank. I gave that to Mama back in 1991, when she was in the hospital. The laugh I found somewhere in Jackson, can't remember where, Steinmart maybe. In the bedroom, we used framed prints of rose photos I took at Portland's rose garden as a sort of headboard for Mama's bed. The lamp and family photo collage are straight across from the door to the bedroom. That lamp is from about 1955--Mama's folks gave it to her and Daddy way back then. Mama's dresser is so big; it holds a lot of stuff, as does the dresser which you can see reflected in the dresser's mirror. Mama is so proud of how beautiful her bedroom is. And that I've left her walls alone!
