another era

Sometimes I think that I should have been born in
the ruffles, the hats, the attitude...
where bathing was an art form and a luxury
is this tub in the middle of the room not amazing?
Lovely screens awaited to
envelop you while you dressed...

and you could escape in the images of far away lands...

Please enjoy, Karen

Love the photos. And I've felt the same way about being born in the wrong time!

So nice..I'd love to take a soak in that tub. Sometimes I think we wear so many different hats as women today that we don't have time to stop and relax and enjoy being feminine and girly! Lisa ;-)

Oftentimes I think the same thing. I wouldn't have to listen to cell phones ringing. But then I wouldn't have the internet!

liebe Karen, du hast drei schöne Dinge hier gezeigt, es ist aus einer wunderschönen Zeit, die mir auch sehr zu Herzen geht, ach wie oft stelle ich mir ein Leben von damals vor, natürlich gab es schlechte und gute Zeiten.Wir können einen kleinen Hauch Nostalgie noch erleben und empfinden auch in dieser Zeit...
liebe Grüße von Jasmin

How I'd love a bathroom like that, although it might get a little cold...I am used to my bathroom steaming up! My mother always used to say I should have been born in the 20's...maybe I was a flapper in a previous life! lol!

That would not have been my world. I am plain and simple. Never have liked fancy things.
