What I saw in the bath



Lady and the Tramp

Doesn't take much to amuse me, I guess. While soaking in a hot bath in candlelight the other night I saw Lady and the Tramp, shadow puppets made from bath fixtures on the shower wall (does that make them showdows instead of shadows?). I had noticed them before and never felt like getting out of the tub to go get the camera, and I lay there balancing the pros and cons of doing just that. Actually, I waited a bit too long to decide to drip my way through to the kitchen where the camera is kept in a drawer because by the time I returned to the bathroom the tall candle that was helping to form the shape of Lady had overflowed its well, causing hot green wax to spill onto the rim of the tub -- and in the meantime it changed the original height and direction of the light beam onto Lady. Her nose was more elongated now, making her appear more like our Standard Poodle than a Cocker Spaniel, but the Lady-effect was still discernible. I decided to go with it anyway and to post these to see if you see what I saw!

Watching this video clip today brought some real charm into an otherwise gray and gloomy Saturday. The new Pixar stuff is fantastic but you just can't beat original Walt Disney animation to lift the spirits.

If you start to see the spaghetti, it means someone let a snake into the tub.

Ah, Lydia...did I ever tell you that I like the way you think?

Lydia said...

dmarks~ O, that's good...very funny. :)

Erin~ I consider that a huge compliment!

Took me awhile, Lydia. But they are definitely there. Will your baths every be the same again?

Maggie May said...

I think absolutely that the old DIsney is better than anything new. The new stuff is too 'clean' for my eye.

Lydia said...

bfk~ Well I'm glad you saw them because the set of human male eyes in this house could not see them. No bath is ever truly the same...but most showers are alike.

Maggie May~ Too Clean! Yes, I absolutely love this description and agree with you.

yep, lady and the tramp was a beautiful movie!!!

how are you doing, Lydia?
did you have a good start into the new year?

we've been really busy here in DK and i'm totally wrapped up, sewing curtains! And this is not an activity I particularly enjoy, it's just someone has to do it!

here's something, you might enjoy:

Have fun!

hahahaha! i know i am not alone now!

Lydia said...

Sarah Sofia~ Hehe, it is strange that I actually left a message for you at Phivos blog earlier in the day (it was fun to see you as a guest blogger there).
The year has begun ok for us; there was a worry about the security of my husband's job but the budgetary conditions appear to be smoothing out. How about you? Good year so far? Making curtains? I did that a few years ago and had fun.
I must remember to follow the link you gave...therefore, I've made a note to myself. :)

ValGalArt~ Really?! O, I feel so relieved and validated!
