Un Bain de Plein Air

May 18, 2011 | Gardening, Homesteading, Potager | 13 comments

The finishing touches are almost done in the Potager.
Then, the fun part… the styling!
I’ve got some dreamy ideas that I hope I have time to pull together… 
I can’t resist doing a bit before the big day on Monday.
I promise Fifi, 
I won’t have hurt feelings if you giggle your Parisienne giggle and tear the entire thing apart and start over!
Alas, no bread oven yet.  
Even a DIY project can be trés cher!
It’s been a grueling week of long, long days in the garden.  
Long, filthy days that would have had to have been done – photo shoot next Monday or not in order to finish the big expansion.
Did I mention how filthy???
With 8 City Chicks and 3 “Chickens” the dirt tracked upstairs to our one and only full bath is getting a little out of control.
Read: Insane.
I’ve got this bonne marché brainstorm for an outdoor, solar shower.
Now, if only I could find a claw foot tub on Craigslist for $50…

    That outdoor bath is insanely scrumptious! I love how it even has a sink and mirror. I sincerely hope that you’ll be able to find a claw foot tub on Craigslist for $50 as well. We had one in the house I grew up in as a kid and I sorely miss it to this day…

    Your kids would just love this!
    I can just imagine you saying to Juliette: “No, Hoolie, tonight we need to take a bath inside…”
    Before I saw that this was not your open air bath, I wondered why you had that gaudy fish under the table:) It definitely didn’t look like you!

    Hang in there with all of “les grands projets.”

    Hello!! Oh that’s my dream too…that ever elusive, gotta be first in line craigslist score! I’ve had my eye out too for a clawfoot tub. Keep looking! You’ll find it!!

    I was thinking, “What fish is she talking about?” then I looked again!

    I have a claw foot tub outside that we use in the summer. Simply a wonderful treat. I do hope you find one.

    Oh Angela, that looks absolutely tranquil. I would love to have an outside shower/bath. Good luck on your search. I am still trying to work on my “potager”, however the weather is not being very cooperative right now. Can you say MUD, that is what my potager is right now.

    A bubble bath under the stars ~ what a treat!!
