Mirror, mirror on the wall . . .

I have a problem. The more I fill my house with pretty stuff, the more I like it. I try not to let an unfinished room affect me, but it does. It drives me crazy.

BUT

for the past few days I have been content because there is finally a large round mirror on my living room wall. FINALLY! I have known I wanted a large round mirror there for several months, almost since the moment we moved in, but since we needed lots of more functional furniture as well, the mirror got pushed towards the end of the home decor budget list.

This is the mirror I've had my eye on since oh, maybe September. Isn't she pretty? And even though the price is pretty good for a mirror of that size, I thought I could do better. And I did.

At Home Goods in Salt Lake last Thursday afternoon (after spending the better part of the day at Temple Square), I found this beauty (at more than half the price and a full 6" diameter bigger). And it makes me smile every time I walk into my living room.

Hey!
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

So... we only have this one light in the girls's room, besides a little lamp, and I think that the amount of light is plenty!
You should be totally fine with this being her only light source.
We haven't had any problems!
Hope that helps.

Ok I LOVE that mirror!! I also spotted that great blue lamp in the picture as well. Thanks for commenting on my blog. It's funny--I was there that same afternoon in Salt Lake, but I didn't see that mirror. Isn't it great when you find just what you're looking for. It really looks fabulous!
