Mirror Obsession Continues

I guess I have a thing for ugly mirrors.  Who knew?

Take this guy....

The detail is pretty but the gold just wasn't doing it for me! 
Nothing a little spray paint can't fix.

And then comes the next important question....where do I hang it?? 

This leads to a decorating tip from me, the professional (ha!).  If you see something that you REALLY like and it fits in with the overall style of your house, purchase it.  Even if you don't know where you will put it in your house...purchase it.  You will find a place! 

After some thought, I realized that I just wasn't digging the way our hall table looked (for more reasons than a lack of mirror)....

After hanging the mirror, purchasing a $6 Target lamp shade, and relocating some accessories I already had around the house...here is the hall table today....

If only mirrors were easier to photograph...
And how long do poinsettas live?  Ours is still going strong...

Blizzard Warning Week-end

A Blizzard Warning for the entire state of Iowa equals a lot of time trapped indoors.  Good time to work on some projects. Here's some of what we worked on!

End table on sale at Hobby Lobby.  Liked the black but not for the location we wanted to place it in.

After.  Looks lighter here.  Might need some destressing..still deciding. And yes, it needs centered.

Quilt for my niece due on Dec. 24th.  Still needs tied

Sugar cookies!!  Headed to the freezer.  Will frosten next week-end!

Busy week ahead!

We both have lots of projects to finish up at work before taking most of next week off.  Ike has obedience school graduation on Tuesday night (cross your fingers that he passes).  We also need to finish up Christmas shopping sometime.  Nate's work party is Friday night.  And we're hosting a party on Sunday night so there is the preparation for that.  Even though this time of year is hectic, we wouldn't have it any other way!!
