It's Getting Fishy In Here

It all started with these three fish...
I was vintage shopping with my mom in San Jose and we came across those three little fish. They are from the 1960s and are vintage chalk ware. I had seem similar ones when I was shopping in Memphis, Tennessee but didn't buy them (boy am I kicking myself now). These were so cute and the price was just right. I couldn't pass them up. I took some of my birthday money and bought them.

I had been wanting to paint my master bathroom (tiniest master bathroom ever btw) and I had been debating on the color. I wanted a color that was going to be light and something that I knew if I got sick wouldn't make me feel sicker. Know what I mean? So after much debate I ended up going with Olympic in Oasis. It's a very, very light blue. In the light it can almost pass for a light blue/green.
Before and after
With the three fish on one wall, I couldn't just leave them in there by themselves so I started hunting down more to go along with them. I found this cute couple...
I also found this mermaid...
I've got three walls bearing vintage chalk ware now I just need to find some more for one more wall and the bathroom will be complete. I of course have one of the super, colorful tropical fish shower curtains as well. I also keep my Baker Beach rock collection in there. Every time I've been there, I've picked up a rock or two.
