Mirror Mirror

After 2.5 years I have finally found a lovely handyman who was able to put my "mirror mirror" on the wall. This mirror (originally from Next - I promise I'm not sponsored by them just have an accommodating account withthem!!) used to hang in my bedroom at my parents and I naturally assumed that it would belong in the bedroom of my flat. Then I brought a rather large full length mirror and it wasn't needed
I started decorating my front room and thought the mirror would be perfect to replace what was previously in that space... but of course the problem remained that I still needed to find someone to attach it to the wall!

After 5 months I managed to track down a handyman in the local area who charged me a reasonable £30 to put on the wall - I couldn't have been happier but..... it was smaller than the previous mirror and of course its shape made it difficult for me to think how I could make use of the space around it

Ben joined me for dinner on Friday I explained how I was thinking about putting the sconces in the front room but couldn't decide where and he queried why I didn't put them alongside the mirror - brilliant idea... so that is what I have done... and I love it!

Mum decided that the white candles I originally had in place weren't suitable so she has popped in yesterday and replaced them with black ones which I agree are far more striking!

Its amazing how things can fall in to place and using decorations from other rooms can give a new lease of life to another

Lola Dining Chairs from Next

Following an unscheduled absence from my blog I'm back and should share what has caused my lack of blogging!

You may remember the "big reveal" of my living room back in March and since then I've been adding finishing touches, moving things around and generally pulling everything togetherI don't want to overload you with too many photos in this post but I will initally draw your attention to the fact I can now invite friends over for dinner and they'll have something to sit on!

Anyone sitting on the chairs are required to sign a disclaimer as I put them together! Like most of my furniture they were from Next and you can find them here: Lola Dining Chairs

The table was still missing something so I added some colour with another articifical flower arrangement. I can't recommend artificial flowers enough, this arrangement cost me £30 and will outlast the equivalent spend on fresh flowers.
