It’s time to join Barb once again at her blog, Grits and Glamour for a little What’s on Your Wall Wednesday fun. It’s a great day to peek in each other’s homes and get ideas for walls. What one person doesn’t think of ~~ someone else does, right?
Today let’s step inside my guest bathroom. We have very high ceilings in here 10 or 11 feet and to complicate matters there is one of those fun but dreaded ledges. Those pesky ledges add fun and a certain element when decorated, but am I the only one that finds them to be a real challenge?
My theme revolved around this old “vintage” map of the

This belonged to my dear, fun father in law. When both of my in laws
passed away and we were going through the household, Emily (dd #2) put her
claims to this map. You see it wasn’t just any map, it was a
framed map with colorful pins marking different cities across our
fine United States. My father in law was a corporate pilot for a small
company and he placed a pin to show all the places in the United States
where he had actually flown the company plane.
I’m sure some pins have fallen out, but it really is a nice keepsake.
Well, like a few other things, dd#2 hasn’t taken this map with her yet, so it is in my home. It has been stored in the attic for several years and I decided it was time to display this family keepsake.
I love this dark brown leather case that seemed to speak “travel”.

And I had this old vintage camera ~~~~~
The globe was a gift I gave to Mr. Brown Socks one of the first
Christmases after we were married. Probably around 1971. It is very outdated by now, but doesn’t that add to the charm and interest? It’s fun for someone who is into geography like Mr. Brown Socks
and dd#2 to take a look and tell the rest of us this country IS no longer or has
been renamed or whatever they come up with. I wish I were smarter!
Of course any decent silk plant lady must add some greenery to finish off a look.
On another wall, I have a picture that was actually taken in Washington, N.C. It’s on Main Street. This is the town where my dear mother grew up. It is a waterfront town. I love “little Washington” as it is called and I think the fall leaves portray this street beautifully. It also just happens to match my shower curtain.

Maybe you can get a better feel for how this room is set up by seeing the ledge above the doorway.
I am quickly learning that to be a great blogger, one must be a great photographer. I am unfortunately lacking in that department.
Can you see the little light that is positioned on this shelf?? Funny thing, that little light is one of my favorite parts of my house! It’s nice to have it shining dimly for guests to find their way to the necessary room ~~
or when my mother spends the night, it is a perfect little nightlight.
Something so little and I almost didn’t splurge for it.
Remember, it is the little things!
Enjoy viewing all the walls of our fellow bloggers on this glorious Wednesday!
