Until recently, though, the tub was most often used by our youngest son. Behold: a spa for Bionicles.
I decided that I wanted to reclaim this spot for my husband and me. So I set out to make the atmosphere more spa-like using some things I had around the house.
This basket used to hold--guess what?--Legos. And water guns. And toy boats. Those went to a plastic basket in the cupboard, and towels went in the basket.
I took an old hurricane globe and filled the bottom with seashells. Makes a nice candle holder by the tub.
This silver shell I found at Target a couple of years ago. I think I paid $4.88 for it, and I put it away, thinking that someday I'd find a good use for it. I like using it to hold bath salts and things.
Now I just need to make some time to get in the tub myself.
