A little updating... and stripping

You may remember this mirror from a few weeks back.   I am not liking that ceiling showing, so I thought maybe I could just divert your attention from it. 

Tammy hasn't picked up her cutting machine yet, so I went ahead and ordered some vinyl off of Ebay.  Did you know that they have a vinyl that looks like etching?  I love etching but never had the desire to tackle that messy process. 

This vinyl honestly looks like the real deal.  I love it.  
(I can't get a decent picture of this mirror, sorry).
now at least you are not just looking at ceiling. 
What do you think?

Ah Ah got your attention, didn' I?!... no I haven't taken up a new profession...

that border is finally coming down... another inherited piece of this house.

I got this corner done yesterday...

but I have the rest to finish today if my hand and arm hold out...

I will be so glad to see it GONE...

just thought I would share a pic with you... this is my daughter's car... we had 70 mile winds on Thursday all day, it was horrible... I feel so bad for the people South of us... such devastation.   I am still in shock that all my trees are still standing.

But unfortunately this one didn't stay put on Lisa's street. She is so upset, but thankful she and Mya weren't in it at the time. 

Looks like this little munchkin is happy to be getting new wheels...


isn't she getting big?

Well I am off to strip...
Hope you have a great weekend... they are promising nice weather today and NO RAIN... it is 30F right now do you think the weather guesser is right?... I will keep you posted.

Hugs,

The viny made a huge difference in the mirror. It looks like real etching. Etching and mosaid are two crafts I don't try.

So sorry about Lisa's car but as you said, glad she and Mya weren't in it when the tree fell.

Hope the weather guesser is right and you have a nice day. It hasn't rained here in three days! I think that's a record for this month. ;)

That whole mantel grouping is just gorgeous! And the mirror monogram adds that extra zip! I don't envy your border stripping...the old arms ache so badly, don't they?! I have to do this soon myself and dreading it, except for the new look it will give, lol! Have a blessed weekend! (love that angel baby, too!)

That looks wonderful! I didn't know they make vinyl like that. I love it. I am sorry about your daughters car and I am sorry to hear about your community.

That etched mirror is beautiful! I have a cutter... may have to try my hand at some etching.... hmmmm. Thank God no one was hurt in those damaging winds. It is hard to lose property to storms, but I can't imagine losing a family member. Don't even want to think about it. Our weather guessers are predicting a violent May. I sure hope they are wrong. Mya is getting big - and cuter by the minute!

You are just doing so good with everything Deb!! I'm jealous! The vinyl looks great on the mirror. The whole mantel area looks so warm and comforting. Mya is getting big and such a cutie!!
