Mirror, Mirror …

on the wall. Which one of these from Anthropologie is the fairest of all? What do you think? I’m torn between the reflecting pool and the Porte Dauphine…. The reflecting pool mirror is made of weathered ceramic tiles, in hues of rose and fern, on a mango wood frame. It’s 12″ square and each is […] [Read More]

Top Three Thursdays

on
I continue to have a thing with felted objects and felted bowls in particular. I have now knit two items but have no place to actually felt them because I don’t have the right kind of washing machine. Some day, though, some day I am going to get this felting thing mastered. In the meantime, […] [Read More]

Getting Framed

Anyway, I found these on Frills, a website that wants you to “add excitement to your home.” […] [Read More]
