Le Bain, LaVaTorY

                            
Thank you Cindy from My romantic Home for your Show and Tell Fridayhttp://www.panacheinteriors-online.co.uk/catalog/images/STN018.jpgOk.... so this week is the letter L!~ Every Thursday Jenny Matlock hosts Alphabet Thursday.  And although you may think my letter L is LAME this week, I have been  a bit LAZY when it comes to blogging.  I however, have LINKED up with everyone and their Mothers LITERALLY this week, and thought I would do the same with this alphabet post.  I will be featuring our Le Bains.....what is a Le Bain? Well guess what I googled it and could not find it anywhere? Yet I see these bath signs all over the place....so if anyone has the correct definition, please share.  I did see Le Sbain...but still not right?  So I will go on to LAVATORY....A bathroom; a washroom; A toilet
en.wiktionary.org/wiki/lavatory Ok that I found, you get the gist.  Featuring  our Le Bain  facilities below....thanks so much for dropping by, and please check out the other hosts link ups...they are really fun!~Starting with Le Master Bath.....
Next Le Bain is my very small Guest Bath...you will notice I like to keep Le Flow of my Le Bains, I also love to collect crosses, and find decorating with them very unique to our style and Le Flow of the rest of our home. 


We love Spanish Art and are very influenced by the beautiful art and colors

Paper art purchased in Arizona and my hubby made the frame
                        
And to end this segment of the Le Bain....if you are ever at a loss what to do with old Le toilets...here are some creative ideas for you
http://www.rednecks.info/pictures/redneck-garden.jpg 
http://www.emailajoke.com/images/ver4/funny_pics/general/Redneck-grill.jpg 
Now this last idea was very creative, I would spray paint it.

Thanks everyone for viewing my post. 
P.S.  I did not feature my boys Le Bain, as it is Not Le Clean!~
Thank you to the lovely hosts below.  P.S. I have a special giveaway, check it out on my first post!~

Deb, cute post of your le bains. That does mean bath in French. Yours are so pretty. So glad you made me laugh. I am sitting here with my finger in a glass of ice water. I burned it on the lawn mower. It instantly turned white, ouch!!

Bain is indeed bath or bathe, as in salle de bain being bathroom. Of course, I think yours need to be called something much grander given how wonderful they are! Stunning pictures too as always.

So clever! I like your crosses, we have several of them as well, Hubby also collects them. I think it is important to have things in your house that have meaning, the spainish art is lovely! I am so glad that my listening post "struck a cord with you" even though you probably could write a book on being a good listener!

Your post on trash to treasure was SO inspiring & helpful. I just found out last night that our son wants to have the rehearsal dinner at our house in Aug. around the pool, so I sure need to do some sprucing up in the back yard this year!
