  1. These are great ideas, Suzy! I’ve been trying to decide on a spot to do a gallery of mirrors. I love that look.

    1. Oooh – I bet a gallery of mirrors would look great in your home, Shenita!

  2. HI!
    I love reading your posts. So refreshing and down to earth. And best of all
    ATTRACTIVE to look at.
    Your LR always looks inviting. A room
    to relax in even on a busy day.
    Do you do you also have sitting room with no tv.
    Is the breakfast area also your dining room? Your home is very welcoming.

    1. Thank you so much! I’m really glad to hear that you enjoy reading the posts. No, we do not have a sitting room without a tv. Unfortunately, I watch tv way to much! The breakfast room is at one end of our kitchen and we also have a separate dining room.

    thank you.

    1. Those mirrors are from Horchow, but unfortunately, they’re no longer available. 🙁
