Okay, so I haven't been the best blogger lately, and I apologize. My husband just returned from a long diving trip on the other side of the globe, and the Labor Day weekend involved a family reunion that required travel. Plus, I've been busy doing some stuff 'round here. Here are some sneak peeks of what I've been up to . . .

First, the bathroom at my husband's office was in desperate need of a facelift. So, while he was away and over the long weekend this happened:
Getting a new penny round tile floor, fixtures and a paint job made a world of difference. Here's the before:
The tile and fixtures were really dated, and, yes, that is a shower in a dental office bathroom. Let me explain that my husband's office is in a cute little neighborhood that is mainly comprised of old houses converted into businesses. He doesn't own the building so we didn't want to do major demolition, nor could we afford to totally gut the bathroom. This was more of a cosmetic job. They actually use the "shower" for storage, but I wanted to camouflage it, thus the louvered door.

Here's another shot of the tile:
And the before:
I must admit, I am in love with the black penny rounds. With so much foot traffic, I think the dark tile will hide dirt a lot better than the creamy white floor tile which always looked grimy to me even after a good cleaning. I will share better photos later that aren't taken with my iPhone, but this at least gives you an idea.

Some other stuff, included a mirror I found for a client at a local antique mall . . . 
I know I look lovely with my glasses on and hair pulled back. I'm keepin' it real.

And a horn bowl from World Market . . .
They've got a great selection of horn bowls right now. I'll reveal which one we chose later when her space is complete. 

Oh, and of course, I found a little something for myself there too . . .
Isn't this hammered metal bowl cool? I love the black and gold combo (duh), and it so reminded me of Tom Dixon's Beat Light:

If I were ambitious, maybe I could convert the bowl into a pendant light? But, I'm kind of digging it as just a bowl right now.

Hope all is well in your world. I promise to be back sooner rather than later next time.
