Italian Mirror

We hung our large  Italian mirror over the buffet. 
I am quite proud we got around to this task as we are covered up in Darling Mini Wee's and our Cindy Lou kitten.  Not two foot from this buffet the house is a bonified wreck but you will never see it.

The often seen funeral baskets have pride of place there in the center, Joe's mother's foot stool is on the left with a newly acquired bust from the Peach 23 sale. I obtained the vintage glove mold from that sale as well.

I wish all of you a lovely Sunday. 
We are taking the Wee's to church then having a birthday lunch for Joe.

In other good news CC has been accepted at the Korean University and we are in a flurry of activity obtaining insurance, a visa, and a plane ticket. 
She is thrilled. 

joy and peace
