On Sunday, we signed the lease on a new home. It's a sunny, top-floor apartment with bay windows, in a quiet neighborhood with much more space than we have now. But the real deal-sealer for me? A freshly re-enameled clawfoot tub - the sort of thing of dreams, my friends. In anticipation of our move in May, and many many luxurious soaks ahead, I've compiled a list of bath items to bring along.
(Left to right, starting in the top row)
A luxurious natural sea wool sponge, to massage soaps into the skin.
A detoxifying soak, to revive the body and warm the soul.
A bathtub caddy to hold my book, a candle and on the most relaxing evenings, a glass of red wine.
A delicious spring soap, with hints of lemon and rosemary.
A sumptuous bath towel, like the one we've placed on our registry, to lock in the warmth.
A gorgeous candle, made in Virginia and for a great cause, to fill the air with earthy scents.
A wooden bath mat, for stepping back into the world after blissfully floating away.
A natural tub brush to scrub down and prepare for the next night of relaxation.
