The Bathroom Re-Do/...and "Sweet Southern Iced Tea"

Gracious..it was difficult to get a good photo of the hallway bathroom today. But I managed to get a few to give you an idea of what the room now looks like.


I love the old fashioned lights..but..I don't think others would like them very much.I like the sort of gypsy type look they have.

Anyhow..I painted the bathroom a pale blue color.

It looks much better than a pale yellow butter color.Of course I'll be putting pretty tea towel up on either side of the vanity too.
------------------
So now I can say that this room is officially "re done" and the only thing it lacks is a couple of pretty tea towels on each towel holder by the sink.
Ta-Dah! :0)
-------------------------
O.k...so..I had someone recently ask about "good ole Southern Iced Tea"
Well..I'm pleased to inform you that "good ole southern iced tea" doesn't entail rocket science..oh no..it's as easy as punch...
Here tis' the recipe for making it:
4-5 bags of Luzianne or Lipton tea
1 cup of sugar
2 quart container
water
2 lemons
-----------
In a small saucepan bring your tea,water and sugar to a quick boil (it will get bubbly looking but you simply want the sugar to dissolve)..remove from heat.
Let steep for about 20 minutes.
Pour into pitcher and slightly squeeze the excess tea from the bags into the pitcher.
Slice the 2 lemons in half and remove seeds then squeeze the lemon juice into the pitcher.
After doing that..slice the lemons thin and just toss the lemon slices into the tea.
Then fill the pitcher with water and stir gently.
A pretty pitcher full of lemon flavored Iced tea.
Serve over ice.
After the tea has a nice flavor blend of tea and lemon..you can remove the lemon slices if you wish and simply get a fresh lemon and just add a slice of lemon to the side of the glass.
But there you have it...It's not too hard to do.
Enjoy!
--------------------------
And if tea isn't your thing..just use those daggum' lemons to make lemonade.:0)
Enjoy!
-----------------------------
Have a great day!
