Confession: I read in the loo.
I know for a fact that in this part of the universe that I live in, people do find it “unholy” to read in the loo, hence the confession.
Now, since I have made the confession I feel at peace to finish this post.
For my birthday last year SSM had gifted me with a lovely bouquet of orchids and lilies – Oh, how I love lilies. The flowers were beautifully arranged in a rectangular wooden case.
With days the flowers wilted but the case stayed. And I put it away behind a cupboard.
It lay there all this while alone and forlorn till today morning when I suddenly had a ‘eureka’ moment.
And this is what happened.
Loo reading is fun and I have always wished for a bookshelf in my bathroom. I have known that, that would be a little too much for ask for. But just a tiny little place to keep just a book or two has been a craving for long.
And now I had my bookshelf right here in front of my eyes. I chiseled off the bits of fiber glass that was stuck on it and stuck a bit of 'Winnie the pooh' wallpaper to cover up the blemishes on the case. I then fixed it up in the bathroom with some strong double sided tape.
It’s perfect to hold a couple of regular sized books and it looks wonderful.
Well now that I had a shelf, I wanted to do it up a bit. So I got a old of a jar, filled it with potpourri, sprinkled some sandal wood oil in it, covered it with a pretty looking cloth and fastened it up with a jute thread.
There it is now adorning my bookshelf and the bookshelf adorning my bathroom.
And there you go.... Doesn't it all look just awesome -The shelf, the jar and the book?
Also, stomach upsets do not seem too bad anymore. K
