my christmas/birthday gifts

After the furniture was moved back into our kitchen/dining room, I told my husband that I'd love to have the mirror over the mantel painted white for my birthday present.   He went out to the garage and primed it, painted it before he went to bed, and hung it this morning.  I am SO blessed!  The floors for Christmas and this beautiful vignette for my birthday!

If you want to see a few more photos of the (mostly) finished room, they are HERE!


  1. Happy Birthday Rebecca ~ Love your mirror and it looks wonderful there and with your white pieces to the left of it.

    I'm in Toronto, Canada. I came to spend Christmas, New Year and my Bday that is early January, with my sister. To smooth the feelings of my first Christmas without at least listen my mother's voice......
    My sister is the only family I have and what's worth than family.....

    Again have a wonderful Christmas full of love.
    Big hug, my dear.
