15 july

the bathroom sink

when we moved here to this rather tiny island

our home was empty

only the incredible view of the Atlantic Ocean just outside the windows

and we knew upon seeing this place that it was to be ours

the bathroom is painted a kind of periwinkle blue

and the old porcelain freestanding sink is chipped and cracked

I fell in love with it upon first sight

  I grace it with a tiny vase of sweetheart roses and a stem of hydrangea

 I would rather wash my hands and brush my teeth

at my old, chipped, white porcelain sink

than those that are gilded with gold

for kings and queens

Why are we so moved 

to acquire more and more and more


Philippians 4:11
Not that I speak in respect of want: 
for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, 
therewith to be content.

I would like to extend an open invitation to join me 
for my first ever link-up meme
Tuesday Afternoon
your post can be about anything that gives one pause
to enjoy the simple beauty of 
Tuesday Afternoon
I look forward to seeing you

  1. Great photo, and I love the idea of combining flowers and soap.

  2. Oooh, what it is about women that I can read about a quaint old bathroom sink with an ocean view and be nodding "yes".
    I so get that. Sweet post. Thank you for sharing. Happy to be neighboring you today at Coffee for Your Heart. :)
    ~ Best to you ~

  5. Your lovely bathroom reflects the heart of this blog - a spirit of simplicity :) Looking forward to linking up with you in the future on "Tuesday Afternoons."

  6. What a great and relaxing post! I'm right there with you, I'd rather have a chipped old sink with a great view than one made for kings and queens. :)

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the gentle night to you.
Moon and stars pour their healing light on you
