Moments of inspiration

Sometimes I find the Ladies room in Quilt shops and Tea rooms to be so fascinating. They often times offer some inspiration.

Tea rooms lean towards a slightly elegant flavor in their Ladies room They will have cloth towels and lovely art work on the walls.

Very ornate wash bowls

Quilt shops tend to be a little more laid back in their decor. But they do sometimes have some very cute


or interesting projects on display.

So as a good rule of thumb, it might be profitable to keep a camera in your purse. You just never know when you might be faced with an inspirational opportunity :-)

Have a happy quilty day!

That sink reminded me quickly of the one we had in the house we rented in England! I now wish I would have snapped a photo to show you! You are right...I'm learning to keep my camera with me because you just never know!

I am laughing rather hysterically that you took a camera into the Ladies' Room (although it surely looks as if it was worthwhile). I have a friend who visits the Ladies' Room EVERYWHERE we go...I'll have to send her in with a camera in the future! LOL

Good idea about the camera. I try to remember but these days I'm feeling forgetful. They had sinks like that in the women's washrooms at the Paris Hotel in Vegas. Aren't they awsome.

That is a great reminder Jocelyn. I often kick myself for not putting my camera in my purse.

Interesting post Jocelyn. I must visit quilt shop wash rooms more often. I always take my camera with me everywhere I go and often find great photo oppotunities on my travels - Hugs Natima

Inspiration is every where - one never knows. I never seem to have my camera with me. Sigh. LOL

I am soooo glad to have found somebodyelse who sometimes takes photos in ladies' loos as it's something I've done if very impressed for some reason - a nice feature, a poem on the way, something crafty etc etc!! I almost feel normal now, thanks and Happy Christmas!

I never thought of taking pictures in the ladies' room, but I have seen some really neat ones with some neat ideas. I'll try to remember to take the camera when I know I'm going to a place that might just have a photograpic opportunity like these.
