old lady

i am an old lady. aaron bought me a heating blanket so that i could finally sleep. my feet and hands get SO cold at night that i can't relax. ha. and this is with two blankets on. so here it under my old lady heating blanket. yes!!!

update on the mirror: it still looks gold even after staining it a slightly less vegas gold, but i'm loving it. is that weird? I think it might go in my music room! yes!

I also wanted to put three mirrors up in my bedroom. one in the middle, and two that bend in at the sides. like this.....
with a light above it? What do you think?
