Hello, everyone!

I'm Mari from Arcadian Home blog, a wonderful place to find lots of interior design inspiration including fabulous ideas for lighting from bathroom light fixtures to lovely little wall sconces. I'm so excited to be visiting with you here at A Pocketful of Blue with a guest post about charming farmhouse bathrooms.
For your decorating inspiration, I've pulled together some of my favorite country bathroom designs from across the United States and around the world. It seems just about every country has its own treasured farmhouses. Please enjoy!

This farmhouse style bath in the guest house of a San Juan Islands, Washington, compound shows the beauty of simplicity that is evident in many country bathrooms. A white clawfoot tub is the centerpiece of the room's design.

The bathroom of a country home called Casa Atmella in Spain is a wonderful mix of rustic and contemporary. One of my favorite elements is the use of baskets instead of the requisite drawers we…

Stylish Kitchen Faucet

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Moen, Incorporated for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. We all love a beautiful kitchen but we often don't have the budget for a major renovation.  One way to add some fresh style for a relatively small amount of money is to change out your kitchen faucet.  Kiran Spot Resist one-handle pulldown kitchen faucet Moen makes some beautiful faucets and one of them is the Moen Kiran Spot resistant kitchen faucet.  This faucet would look great in any style decor.  I have a cottage style kitchen and I can totally see this faucet with my sink but I could see it just as easily in a more modern or even a rustic style kitchen. I love the high arch pull down design and the fact that its lovely finish resists fingerprints and water spots is wonderful.  Anything that stays looking nice without a lot of cleaning or maintenance on my part is a winner with me. The Kiran's pulldown spout has two spray functions - aerated stream or the po…

Easter Eggs and Bunnies

Gosh, you guys, it has taken me FOREVER to get some Spring and Easter  decorations going on at my house but I finally got to it. It's almost all things I already had too.
And then the sun finally came out so I grabbed the camera!
I started noticing that it's all Easter eggs and Easter bunnies so  those must be my favorite things for Spring.

I put some plain white hard boiled eggs in a basket with some  shredded paper and wrapped a piece of the paper around each egg.

I placed it on my most favorite little table in our dining area.

 I decorated these plastic eggs with paint a couple years ago.  I put them in this cute basket I found at Walmart this year.

It's sitting on the little bench near the refrigerator.

A few blue specked eggs were placed in a bowl in the bathroom.

I've had these for a long time too and of course I love the blue!
