i realized i never posted a photo of the mirror that my mom and i found on sale at homegoods:
it's different, but that's why i like it. i was surprised to see something so unique at homegoods. it's hanging in our entryway, the shape looks really nice with our vintage light fixture.
... and i realized that i did not take a photo with the light fixture and the mirror. i really need to put the zoom lens back on the camera. but here's an old photo of our light fixture:
and in case you are wondering, this is what our entryway table actually looks like:
and this is "clean"... those baskets are for shoes and extra bags, and also to hide the fact that we are missing a section of baseboard in that area. and of course we still have our plywood patched floor. someday we will get new floors.... meanwhile i will just try to distract guests with mirrors and lights and shiney things. we just bought that little lamp from ikea, i like to have something that we can leave on at night so that our house is not completely dark. i had a really hard time finding a small lamp that wasn't super ugly. this one is not perfect, but it does the job.
mike and i had a deal - if i could make enough money at the garage sale to cover the cost of 2 hinge light sconces, i could order them for our bedroom. we did pretty well at the sale so now there are 2 sconces on their way to me! i'm excited!
