I Heart Mirrors! Can't get enough of them!

Our computer was fried. It took Fry's a week and a half to tell us it was. And let me tell you, I was upset. It's been tough not having a computer and, in some ways, it's sad. I've become so dependent on it. Ovey! So here I am typing away on our new computer. I hope this one will last a long time.

Everytime I see a mirror that I adore, I grab it. I have no space for another mirror in my house, but I can't stop buying "just one more".

Take a look.

This one is in my office hallway. Venetian mirrors are so glamorous.

This one is in my master bathroom above our sink. Excuse the mess. This photo was taken before I cleaned up.

These are in a small hallway.

And this one is above the master tub across from the master sink. It looks so lonely there. I think when I find the right candelier, I'll hang in front of this mirror.

Oh, I've got a lot more to share, but maybe I'll save it for another mirror show and tell day!

However, I wanted to show you my latest project. It was a mirror I found at a flea market years ago. I had shabby plans for it. I was going to paint it white and decoupage a rose print inside of it, but instead, it sat in my closet until about a month ago. This is what I created. Oh, it's not shabby, but I think it's perfect. Here are my before and after photos.

That's my baby boy. Isn't he cute?


Another before

And after

And more afters.

I love this mirror! It was so fun to make. I wish I could make more of these using differnt prints and appliques. But for right now, I've got more projects in the works, projects to share, and a backlog of my latest finds to share.

Until then,


Wait, We just celebrated my 6 year old's birthday party at The Jungle. Here's my baby (with his mouth stuffed with pizza)! Love you Monkey!

Regarding your comment: My dad showed me how to rewire a chandelier. It is a little complicated and you have to buy a tool to test for any shorts. It's not something I would attempt to show on my blog because I think it would be very confusing. I have an electrical book for dummies that I follow when I'm doing mine.
