Rub-a-dub-dub

No, I don't live on the beach or in the country, but that doesn't keep me from wanting an outdoor shower. I'd have no problem scrubbing clean outside after yard work or when the indoor bath is occupied. How relaxing are these bits of inspiration...

You could go outside right now with some Dial and scrub clean. It is raining cats and dogs out there!

I love Erica's shower - so pretty. My sister in law has one of these two at Chappell Hill.

Outdoor showers always remind me of the summers I've spent at Galveston. We'd always shower off outside to keep the sand out of the house. The thought makes me happy. :)

Husband, offspring and I once rented a beach house [before moving down here] with an outdoor shower. I showered out there several times in the heat of the day, it was the most amazing showers I have ever had. It felt wonderful and super relaxing. I looked straight up and saw nothing but trees, blue sky and birds. Pure delight.

I love the first photo and you have already read above about emma's love of Toast - I second that! Have you subscribed for their catalogue? They even send it to me here in Australia!! Yes, I love looking at their website but receiving the catalogue in the post is such a buzz! The shot also reminds me of the type of things you'll find in Australia's Country Style Mag x

Two short weeks Court & YOU can shower in that outdoor shower of mine! You will love it... sometimes I don't even close the curtains! :) Hope none of my neighbors read your blog- they might start dropping by unexpectedly!

We used to live in the country between Albuquerque & santa Fe & I made the most incredible outdoor shower and..TUB! I did it using one of those big round silver stock tanks, put a fake patina on it secluded with honeysuckle. I gotta dig up the pics for you. Aside from my daughter it's the most magnificent thing I've ever created. Now I'm smack dab back in the middle of Albuquerque & come hell or high water I'll have one again.
Man! What my husband wouldn't give for me to have half this much passion for golf. Snooze...
Just found your blog today. I'm hooked....Jen
