Garage Sale Pitcher and Vase... for the bathroom?

This past Saturday I found two sweet little vases.  Well one is a pitcher but they both will be nice with some kind of flowers in them.  I thought the white would work on a shelf in my newly painted bathroom but then when I saw the blue one... it just looked better.
Each of these cost me all of a dollar.  So I splurged and bought some silk daisy's from Michaels.

 The paint color I bought for the walls  said "Billowy Down" so why is it looking blue? Must be the light and the camera because when I'm in the bathroom it looks white?
I'm not sure what to put on the opposite wall.... will have to venture through Home Goods next week.  Maybe 4 prints to go over the tub?  Floral or something?
You may notice the hand towel hanging on the hook under the shelf.. it's one of my moms.  She has been gone almost 17 years now and this old ratty towel hangs in my bathroom no matter where I am... brings me joy just to see it. 

Oh I hate the color of the tub!  Really!
My plan, in a few weeks,  I will get the paint and finish tub and tile in white.  I want that  "Old French Farmhouse" look in this bathroom and It will happen eventually. But for now it looks so empty.
The counter top is making me so happy now that it's not the ugly yellow laminate.  My plan to add another sink to this rather large vanity was put on hold since the budget is laughing at me.... so it will only get a new fancy faucet.  I've been doing research on how to install the new faucet.  Wish me luck with this!
(now this photo, the walls look green?  take my word for it, their white)

Rain is on the way.  Our rainy season is coming early.  That means storms each afternoon for the next few months.  I just love our loud stormy afternoons.  My garden loves it too!

BTW... 
Leave it to Pinterest to make ya feel dumb...Peeling An Orange, Like A Boss. Cut or pull the top and bottom circles from the orange/tangerine. Then slit between two sections and roll it out. MIND BLOWN.


Have a wonderful week everyone because 
I sure am.

I like your shelf over the tub - I'm pinning this to possibly re-use this idea at the lakehouse. Good luck on the faucet - take pictures.

Sandy it is so hard to say about paint, isn't it?
I take some pictures and yellows, look green; grays, look blue...I believe you if you say it isn't green or blue! LOL...
Now as to the counter...? It looks great! And your patch job where the soap dish and toothbrush holder and towel bar don't even show! The med. cabinet looks great too. You did a wonderful job.
You're researching the plumbing on installing a new faucet? You are going like that energizer bunny!
I am curious to see how you paint your tile? and are you going to have the tub reglazed or what?
As to the orange...I've never seen that before. I'm going to pinterest to check it out.
I couldn't find the link...
but I can see how your mind is blown! That looks so cool,truly!

Thank you for the comment on my Old Door New Furniture post! I love your finds! I tried the orange thing and could not make it work! Although, I probably wasn't doing it right and didn't cut the top and bottom off! :)

Discovered you over at Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson. The shelf over the tub in your bathroom is a great idea. I love the touches of blue that come from your pretty blue vases.

Sandy, I love both the vase and the pitcher. The blue is so cheery with the white daisies. Your bathroom is really looking lovely. Having something that was once your mothers to see daily gifts you with fond memories. I think that paint changes color from morning to night. That orange peeling is amazing! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
hugs,
