Monday Ex-Make Bathroom Blues

Haven't had much chance to create lately , so here's a swansong for something I created earlier :)

When we moved into our home 18 years ago - jeepers, 18 years?! - the boys were all under five and Ella wasn't even born! One of the first rooms I decorated was the bathroom. Over the years the rest of the house has probably had 2 changes in decor but I wouldn't let Jeff touch the bathroom. However, as even Ella is 16 this year I have finally relented and agreed that maybe Mickey Mouse and cute aquatic animals aren't really age appropriate! So they are going ....... but not before I took lots of photographs of my well-worn paintings :) The new colour scheme will of course be modern and in keeping with the rest of the house, but won't be as much fun!
