I forgot how much I can get done during nap time. Today I was reminded. Both Luke and Walker took naps today. At the SAME time!!! Yay for me! So being the wonderful mother that I am, I plunked Porter down in front of the Wii with a nunchuk and Shrek and I went to work on something I've been wanting to do for a few days.

I really didn't like the mirror in my bathroom. It was just so .... boring. So I decided to spruce it up a bit with... yep... another mirror. I found this beautiful round mirror at WINNERS for only $25!!! Yes, $25!!! I couldn't believe it. In Karliland that is a great deal. So I bought it and put it to good use, making my boring, drab bathroom mirror look spectacular. I anchored it with some nice brown ribbon and an iron star that I found HERE.

I love it! And if you like it, well, just wait till you see what I've been working on for my other bathroom. I'll give you a hint. My fingers are covered in spray paint!!!


And I couldn't resist posting a close-up of this little piggy. Isn't he adorable? I dare you to look at him and not smile. You can find this little guy at this store too. And there is another awesome cast iron soap dish there with a rooster instead of a piggy. If you're into that sort of thing. :)

what a great idea. I have boring mirrors in my bathrooms, too. Maybe, if I can find a good deal, I'll try something similar!

Laney loves piggies! But mostly the ones that are attached to her feet.
