I found Izola's Apothecary Pattern shower curtain and thought THIS would be a great start to a vintage-style apothecary-themed bathroom.

  1. This post reminded me that the J.R. Watkins lemon lotion smells so good, it's eat-your-own-hand delicious. Must buy more!

  2. As soon as we move into our new place, this is going to be our bathroom! Except maybe the $160 jars, everything else is totally reasonable!

    • Yeah, that jar collection was pretty pricey. But then I figured, for the right Homie who'd been SEARCHING for something just like that… this'll be worth highlighting.

  3. I need that shower curtain and that soap dish and that toothbrush holder and that trash bucket. I NEED them. I'm already doing an apothecary theme in my bathroom, and they will just make it extra nifty.

  4. LOL! I'm cringing at that bathroom.
    Backstory: I'm a barber, and the shop I work at was established in 1930. We still use a lot of equipment that is original to the shop, plus a lot of "new" antiques. People LOVE to give me old razors, hones and strops, bottles or aftershave or tonic, barber poles and other accouterments as gifts for my home. I always smile and say "Geeze, how neat. Thanks" But I HATE being reminded of work when I'm at home.

  5. For anyone looking to do apothecary jars a little cheaper: take various glass jars from your kitchen, punch a screw-sized hole in the top and add a drawer pull. Spray paint the color of your choosing and: voila! Apothecary jars.

  6. I just found this post, and promptly ordered the shower curtain! Very excited about this upgrade (and the chance to bring my love for the history of medicine into home decor; it'll match the piles of books everywhere.)
