privvy to toilets

Good morning.  You know how I am privvy to toilets, errrrr- outhouses.  I miss my own Mrs. Jones, and am anxious to see pictures of her new place of honor  in New Berlin Illinois.  My, my- Mrs. Jones does get around...
 We have been busy painting and renovating, adding a new bathroom for the meditative soakings that I miss so much.  We're still not quite done with the overhaul, but soon- VERY SOON I will be immersed in the elegance of an old clawfoot tub I've obtained.  Tubs are the one thing in the bathroom that need no code name for they have no shameful, embarressing attributes like their partner accessory- the toilet.
Why shouldn't we praise the throne?  After all- it is of daily necessity and as nostaligic as the outhouse, many royal and historical figures had volumes written of their great and mighty deeds on earth, and often when reading in depth of certain characters- their bathrooms are mentioned.  Such a personal icon- the toilet.  With that said and taken into context-( with no outhouse in sight) I have decided to make mine spectacular, stupendous and smile inducing.





I may not be in the lap of luxury, but by golly I'd hold my seat up to Cleopatra's throne any day!


A thoughtful, talented and wonderfully quirky artist from the great state of California made this here object of fine art just for yours truly!  Should you decide to add a little luster to your life, check out Sonya's wares at:


With that said, food for thought-mermaid mindset and all...be well.  Take care!  And may you never take  your "seat" for granted again...

What a great idea for potty training kids! Why should toilets be dull and boring? A long time ago I did a post about the college my husband and I used to attend, SIU in Carbondale, Illinois, and provided a link to someone's collection of pics of the men's rooms on campus. I thought it was hilarious. Not so sure the PR people on campus would agree, though.
