And It Stayed

And Happy Valentine's Day.  I truly thought it was tomorrow.
Thank goodness I bought my boys' presents early.
I'll show you what I got later.  It is good!

So, I know you are sitting on the edge of your seat wanting to know my decision about the mirror.
It stayed.  Oh I couldn't let it go.
Nope. So after a few swishes and swooshes, I found a way to make it work and not rearrange our home. Well, not completely.
Here are a few looks that this area had before....

I call this BBH. Or before baby hughes. Notice all the pretty mercury glass at chubby hand level.

And, more recently at Christmas

So here it is what it looks like

This little area sits across from our dining room.
I had Mr. Hughes hang the mirror (which he did without me nagging... he actually did three things for me without nagging...more on that later)
And I thought about photoshopping or iphotoing the thermostat and the doorbell out... but, hey, I am keeping it real.  Why do builders put these things in really obvious places?

And I just ordered these little prints from little brown pen.
I adore them.... I have a few more on the way.  Don't you think that little white oval frame needs some too.... it looks a little lonely.

So there it is.  I like it. Mr. Hughes likes it.  It is a happy day.

And, since I was foofing and fluffing... well... I may have changed my mantle and took all the bottles and put them on a metal cabinet in the dining room.  
So, that means some stuff in the living room had to change too.... but that is another post for another day.

This is going to be a fun week.  Specifically the weekend.
We got some passes from Scarlett to go to the Music Valley Antiques Market
at the State Fairgrounds.  She will be setting up along with some really great dealers.
I will be sure to take lots of photos.  
Local gals... are you going to this?

It is February 17-19.
Tennessee State Fairgrounds
625 Smith Ave
Nashville, TN 37203

Well, I will be back soon and show you the other 2 things that the Mr. did without me nagging.

bye for now!

  8. ohh I love where it landed, looks perfect nestled in there!! and the aqua is a great accent, along with the wedding topper and the pretty vintage books! oh and the photo look great, love what you did with them! :)

  11. That looks GREAT. The best out of all three. And I LOVE that Etsy sight that you linked! Oolala.

  12. I like how you've gathered jars of different shapes together. That's a nice effect. I also really like that white and the off white distressed mirrors. Very antique looking!
