My hubby and I bought our first house earlier this year and have slowly been working on de-80s-ing the rooms. The house has two bathrooms, which means we each get our own, which means I could do whatever I wanted with mine! I wanted a vintage peach theme and, to make it old-timey-feeling, I embroidered and cross stitched all of the art for the walls.

I used the letters from Subversive Cross Stitch for this piece. The frame is 5x7:


This is from an Aunt Martha's transfer. The frame is 8x10:


And this little cutie is something I found online, but can't for the life of me find it again! I think I found it on a blog or a flickr group. The frame is 8x10:


The whole bathroom post is at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=278813.0 in case anyone is interested in checking it out. (Hope the cross-posting of the wall art photos is cool. If not, just get the switch out on me.  Wink)

Thanks for looking! I love the homey feel they give my bathroom. I'm going to start working on some things for my dining room soon.  Smiley

I like this series and the way they carry the theme but in different ways.
I'm curious as to how they may withstand the moisture from the bathroom.
But I like them!

That must have been where I found it! I was pretty sure I got it from the vintage embroidery pattern group on flickr, but when I went to look it up again, it was gone. Nice to know I'm not going batty.  Wink

Thanks again for the nice comments, guys.  Smiley
