AND NOW FOR A LITTLE WHIMSY . . .

I decided to do something out of the ordinary. I have this advent "calendar" in the shape of a garden shed, that I purchased at Gardener's Supply Company. I bought it not for the advent part of it, but because it's a garden shed "toy"! So, today, I stuck it in the bathroom!
It has a rotating base and it now sits on the toilet paper cupboard (that used to be a cd storage cupboard - those cubbies are just right for t.p.!). Something to play with while on the throne - hee, hee! Here are some close-ups:

(The little sign says "I'm in the garden".)




And, for those of you who are a wee bit curious about what the sign says ~
A close-up of the wallpaper border. I fell in love with the greenhouses and wisteria (the inspiration for the purple paint), and it has chickens for Mister! (He used to have some)

(When I glanced quickly at your post title, I thought it said "And now for a little Whiskey". You had me really interested there!!

But I do love your "whimsy". What a great little garden shed.

I love this little house. You know I am a sucker for anything in miniature. Great idea for the bathroom, gives you something pretty to look at while taking care of business. I also love the border. Such pretty pictures.
Hugs,
