I'm not usually a copy cat...
no doubt you've heard that expression
imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!
My grandparents gave me this mirror when I was young.
The wood is Maple
it is a very heavy piece and requires 2 large hooks in back to hold it's weight.
The bevelled glass mirror is backed with another type of wood
which I cannot identify...
I used to think it looked like the mirror in Disney's Sleeping Beauty...
mirror mirror on the wall who's the fairest one of all?
I have no idea where this was made or what style it might be
it is a simple mirror which has moved from my family home
and accompanied me ever since.
These sit atop the lingerie chest...
in our small bedroom.
Pepper sits stop our queen size bed
snoopervising my photo shoot
I am blogging from bed
it would appear the flu has become an unwelcome visitor...
I am curious...
do you hand wash many garments?
I have a few favourite things
like this Elie Tahari Tee
the fabric is soft and silky
I consider it to be delicate in nature
as it was a purchase I thought twice about because of the price point
it gets a lot of wear
I find if I treat garments gently and handwash them with TLC
they outlive garments washed in the machine
(how's that for a frugal tip?)
I wash and rinse in the bathroom sink
using Aveda shampure, of course!
I have been blog reading on my laptop in bed and the battery is running low
is calling my name
yoo hoo Hostess!
written by Anne Giardini
the daughter of the late author Carol Shields
I am halfway through, enjoying it immensely
it is quite sad
and find her style to be quite similar to that of her late mother
If you have not had the pleasure of reading a Carol Shields novel you might want to pick one up from your local library.
