Well, here we are. April. A lot has changed since I blogged last.
We moved into our new house. I call it a house because we
are in the the middle of transforming it into our 'home'.
We love this house and have loads and loads of
plans for it. It's the perfect mixture of new and old.
Hardwoods, plaster, and drywall.

I confiscated this mirror from my mother's bedroom. It
had been sitting there against the wall for a number of years.
Unloved and Unused.
So, I loaded 'er up and brought her to the new house. Dear fiance
sawed the top off. I gave her a good sanding and finished with a 
few coats of a red mahogany stain. Rubbing it off
in a certain way to bring an 'antiqueness' to it.
I am in love with this piece. It 
sets the stage for our entire house.
A perfect mixture of new and old.
