I love the look of  sheers, I put these brown sheers up in the master bath, for fall and winter.

Since spring cleaning the bath, I wanted to lighten it up a bit. I had some white sheers that I had bought last year and decided to replace the brown with them.

Still not satisfied I decided to take the garland down to lighten it up some more.
I am leaning toward keeping the garland  down, as it seems to open up the room. So what do you think, which way do you like the best?
Enjoy your evening,

Both are pretty, but I like the no garland for summer.
What a beautiful big bathroom you have.

Vee March 15, 2011 at 8:16 PM  

I like it minus the garland. It's funny. Not too long ago, I took down all the toppers on mirrors and things. It helps make it look a little fresher. Come fall, you'll be ready to put it back. What a lovely room!

Debbie March 15, 2011 at 8:22 PM  

Sue, your bathroom is more beautiful than most chapels! Gorgeous! I'll take it either way, but without does seem a little less formal and lends the room a feeling of a little more space. :D

GardenofDaisies March 15, 2011 at 8:31 PM  

This is how I decide things like that... I ask if it will mean more cleaning and dusting work for me? LOL!
But that is also why my house doesn't look as pretty as yours does. So don't listen to me!

I really like the look of no garland for the spring....fresh looking:) Beautiful room!

I love the white sheers and like them without the garland. It gives it a light airy fresh look.
Your bathroom is very pretty Sue.
I've been doing Spring cleaning in our bedrooms and baths. Feels so good when it's done.
Take care!

I like them with no garland. It looks much more open and lets in so much more light. I wonder why?
Have a wonderful Wednesday. I have been cleaning inside and out. :) I do feel like Mr. Monk. :)

I love the way you have "feathered your nest" Sue... all of the pics show that y'all's house is homey, and inviting and pretty, too.

as for the garland, Either way looks nice to me, I can see how you might want a change, and if you get to missing it, you could always put it back up. I like the way the other bloggers suggested putting it back in the Fall. You might be ready for another change by then.

Either way it is a LOVELY room!

Texas hugs,

Cheryl March 15, 2011 at 10:45 PM  

I, too, cast my vote with the "no garland for spring and summer" camp. I agree with you that it lightens it up a bit. (But with such a beautiful bathroom, I don't think you can go wrong whatever you decide!)
And I'll bet you'll be ready to put it back up come autumn. :-)

Debbie March 15, 2011 at 10:49 PM  

Oh Sue what a perfectly lovely bathroom. I love the whole look. It is pretty either way, but I am with the others. I like the airy, fresh look with white sheers and no garland. And they are right, you can always put it back up later when you feel like a change. I'd love to go on a tour of your whole home. Soo pretty. HUGS, Debbie

Hi Sue,
thanks for coming by....I think the problem you were having was us!!
We were fooling around with my blog
and I was telling Jimmy I wonder if this is changing when someone is reading it at the time, and he said he didn't think so.....guess we got our answer!! lol
You know I really like it without the garland, even tho it is so pretty,
but it really draws your eye to the pretty pics you have in the center
without it!! and it looks more light and airy.
Hope you have a good day tomorrow hon,
Blessings, Nellie

The garlands are beautiful, Sue.
But I think the room looks softer and more peaceful without them :-)
It's so nice to be able to make changes with the seasons, isn't it!
Either way..you have lovely bathroom!

Janette@Janette's Sage March 16, 2011 at 8:42 AM  

It is beautiful...I like it down, but both are beautiful. What an inviting place, and it is the bathroom. You are getting more cleaning done than I am. Happy Spring!

BECKY March 16, 2011 at 10:13 AM  

Hi sweet Sue!! Everything looks so lovely! {as usual!} I love how it looks without the garland. Just looks so clean and bright and crisp!!

Hope you have a delightful day!!
Love and hugs,

Happy@Home March 16, 2011 at 11:02 AM  

What a pretty bathroom. I definitely prefer the no garland option. It looks so light & airy. I can just picture the fresh spring air gently blowing in.

Elena March 16, 2011 at 12:27 PM  

Your curtains are so beautiful. I like the garlands but I can see how taking them down does lighten them up for summer. A change is always fun!

Debbie March 16, 2011 at 1:44 PM  

I just love the look of it any way you go. The brown is stunning for the colder months. I've never seen brown sheers that I can think of.

The white is perfect for spring and summer. I think you should leave the garland down for a while just to be different and then put it back up the next time you feel all nesty.

Heidi Pocketbook March 16, 2011 at 7:17 PM  

With the garland is my favorite, however either way is very lovely!

I want to follow your new blog, but I can't figure out how as I don't see a "follow" button anywhere!

The Quintessential Magpie March 17, 2011 at 4:47 PM  

Hi, Sue! I have really missed you, my friend.

Let's see... I like it both ways. But if you want lighter, take it down for a bit. When you miss it, put it back up! :-) I think it's good to do seasonal looks in a room. Keep the flowers up for fall and winter. How about that compromise?

I'm checking in to wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day and to let you know I miss you. I hope to be blogging more regularly in the not too distant future, but I am convicted to get all of this work done soon. Then I have company from England in April. YEA!

Hope all is well with you and yours and that you have recovered...


Sheila :-)

Karen March 17, 2011 at 5:14 PM  

Love it both ways..but w/o does lighten it up a bit more..
Beautiful room either way..
have a blessed weekend my friend..

Ms.Daisy March 17, 2011 at 11:19 PM  

Hi Sue,
I really like the garland for your winter look and the fresh look with white for summer without the garland...that's just me! I agree with some other commenters try it for awhile and see which way you like it best!


Susan B March 17, 2011 at 11:40 PM  

Hi Sue,
I really like the look without the garland. The white sheers are very pretty! You have a lovely bathroom. Thank you for sharing! :)

Christine March 18, 2011 at 3:33 PM  

I could stay in your bathroom ALL DAY!
I vote to switch it up every season!

elizabeth March 18, 2011 at 9:56 PM  

I love it simple...I think I have been craving the simple, clean, uncluttered look lately!
Thanks for your kind comment on my simple pleasures post!

Julie Harward March 20, 2011 at 1:11 AM  

I love the change...so pretty! ;D

Nancy March 20, 2011 at 3:34 PM  

Sue, its just beautiful either way. Nancy

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
