Spring is the time for rebirth and new beginnings.
After some trying month, lots of medical tests
and care, I am feeling much better.
And so I am also starting a new cycle of rebirth,
of new beginnings.
A heartfelt thanks goes out to all my blogger friends
for their well -wishes and patience.
Thank you all for not giving up on me and checking
in from time to time.
And as this little birdie is ready to nest again.......
so am I.

Because I seldom do things half way,
I thought why not start nesting with a very
BIG project, our downstairs bathroom !!!!!
As you can see, it was definitely stuck
in the sixties......all yellow etc., yack!
We made do for many (way too many) years.

So I thought I share the process.
This is the beginning of a wonderful endeavor.
I have been dreaming about this for so long.

Our wonderful plumber and carpenter at work
tearing it all apart.
They have a lot ahead of them, while I day dream
of things to come.
There are many issues to overcome,
a fairly low ceiling, the right drainage, and expanding
the new tub in to the garage.

So, I will take you on a journey and hope
that you will enjoy the end result, which
I will share with you in the coming weeks.

Here is to nesting and a wonderful Spring
to you all !

God bless,


  1. It's nice to see you blogging again...can't wait to see the progress in the bathroom. take care..;j

    As a fan of your blog I was delighted to find a new entry.
    I am so happy that you are feeling better. We were thinking about you all the time!!!
    It is weird to see the bathroom like this. Knowing you, I am sure that it will look fantastic once it is finished. I can hardly wait to see the bathroom when it is completed.
    Thank you for sharing this exciting project with us. Even though I am living so far away, thanks to your blog I am always able to partake in your life :)
    I wish you a lot of strength for this big project.
    I love you. Many many hugs and kisses.
    Your Steppchen

  3. Lovely to see you back and that Spring is on the way for you.
    I'm looking forward to seeing the new bathroom.
    We continue to work on our old, old house - we're making the lounge at the moment - a huge job.

    Love to you.

  6. Hello Evi, so glad to see and hear from you, I was beginning to worry, wanting to send good wishes and lots of love so you would get better soon! It will be Spring soon, and that project will keep you busy for sure. I loved redoing our bathroom but it was nice when it was all done, can't wait to see your new room!

  7. Hi Evi,
    I am glad you are feeling better, you must be, to take on such a remodel. It will make you feel even better when it is done. I also have a 60's bathroom, in yellow tiles. The fixtures are white, but old. I dream of a new bath, but like you I will need to put up with it for a while....maybe forever, lol. How fun it will be to decorate your new bath. I look forward to seeing the progress!


  8. So good to see your post. Don't you just know that someone out there would love to have that yellow tub? I'm glad you are better and look forward to seeing the results in the bathroom.

  9. How exciting! Now don't you overdue....she says wagging her finger....
    we want you up and creating and blogging : D

  10. Liebste Evi,
    wie wunderschön, dass es dir wieder besser geht und du voller Zuversicht und Tatendrang in den Frühling starten kannst!!! Das neue Bad wird bestimmt wundervoll.............so große Projekte machen zwar immer sehr viel Arbeit, aber es ist so ein herrliches Gefühl, wenn alles neu und fertig ist....und ich freu mich sehr mit dir und bin riesig gespannt, auf das Ergebnis!!!! Ich wünsch dir eine traumhafte Frühlingszeit.........bei uns ist es einfach himmlisch, die Vögel singen und es ist sooooo warm, der Himmel ist blau und die Blumen blühen.......allerliebste Grüße,

    bis bald, herzlichst Jade

  11. Hi Evi,
    You know, I loved the way your old bathroom was decorated...despite the yellow! I think anything you touch looks beautiful. But now...this is getting exciting...I know the end result will be spectacular! I am so pleased that you are feeling better and I am hoping that the spring will bring new beginnings for all of us! :) Love you, Laura

  12. I am happy to hear you are feeling better. Spring is definitely a time for renewal!

    I think your bathroom, is going to turn out beautiful...you have lovely taste! And it looks so big!!

    Take care Evi!
