I need more ROOM in my tub, which is my contribution to this week’s photo challenge.
My favourite thing to do is to relax in a hot tub with sea salt and bubbles and there is nothing better than an old-fashioned clawfoot tub. Why? Because they are deep and have the right angle somehow to lay in, plus they are free-standing so I can stick my feet over the edge anyway I like…if I like.
My tub here at the apartment is very shallow and small and I really miss the old clawfoot tub that I used to have many years ago. I know that there are some wonderful modern baths that are very spacious and deep, but the first house I bought in Canada was built in 1905 and I just loved the tub that came with it.
When I was in my early twenties I lived in Sussex Gardens, opposite Hyde Park in England. I rented a studio flat there and it had a wonderful clawfoot tub that was not only deep, but it was exceptionally long too, I am not kidding when I say it was big enough for two!
The only thing that you can’t see in this image is the window. I love to have a bathroom with a window and to have it open for the breeze and to see the stars, if its possible.
