my m.e. shrine

this is show & tell friday, hosted by kelli. if you would like to share something, check with kelli on the rules and add your name to the list of participants. it's fun to see the different things that are shared each week.

i'm not sure how many will be interested in what i have to share this week, but it's something that i love, therefore, it's something i want to share.

have you ever heard of the artist mary engelbreit? if you don't think you have, chances are that you've seen her work somewhere around. her trademark is bright colors, checkerboards, flowers, cherries, and whimsical sayings. i've included a link to her website under my link of the day.

i love ms. engelbreit's (known as m.e.) art so much, i've made a shrine of her work in my main level bathroom, much to the chagrin of my family. when we moved into this house, i was told by all three of them that i couldn't decorate the main bathroom (as i did in the old house) with m.e. i said, okay, then what other room in the house would you like me to use? the kitchen? the basement? our bedroom, dear? they all looked at each other and made the unified decision that i could do the main bathroom - after all, it's the smallest room in the house.

so here's what my bathroom looks like. just about everything in it is m.e.

i love m.e. and her artwork. i love my bathroom. i wish it was bigger (and it's good size) so i could put up more of her beautiful creations. looking at her handiwork and reading the different sayings takes me to a happy place ;)

I love it! Especially the stars and the birdhouse. It ties in really well with the pictures. I think this was a great 'show and tell' item for Show And Tell Friday. I haven't participated yet, but I'm thinking about it for next Friday! Blessings to you!

Cute! At first I thought it was a ME Shrine - but I was pretty sure you weren't that vain, lol! Sorry, Diana, I couldn't resist!! :)

I love M. E. too - looking at her things always makes me smile!

I don't think it is just the art, but the decorator that pulls it all together!

Barbara H. said...

I love M.E. too and your collection is wonderful! Such a cute way to decorate a bathroom! We have some of her posters hanging in our schoolroom.

i still love ME too. your bathroom came out really great. You're extremely creative. Proud of you.

Cathy said...

I love it! I'm a big M.E. fan too. I have about 10yrs of her calendars and I used to have some of the pictures on my sewing room wall--never thought about the bathroom! Yours is just super! I think you should let them overflow out into the hallway and eventually around the corner and into the next room!
