I love presents!!

Guess what a very thoughtful Mr. Limestone got for me?

No, not a pygmy goat*!!

A big huge beautifully ornate mirror. Just perfect for this idea!

After my post about the idea last week, one very sweet reader sent me a listing for a Craigslist mirror that was ABSOLUTELY perfect in size and style. Alas, it was not meant to be - it was sold before I could press the 'send' button on my mail. But I kept searching and found this one earlier this week and forwarded it on the husband for approval.

He went way beyond just giving his okay. He emailed the seller, negotiated the price and quietly spent a whole afternoon driving up to some mysterious location just so I could have the mirror waiting for me when I arrived home! (pause for mushy oohs and ahhs) All this without me knowing. See, I knew I married this man for a reason. Thank you honey!

I won't say I'll have the finished product to show you anytime soon. Its supposed to be nearly 90 degrees this weekend and we have plans of enjoying the good weather. This project will have to wait until the weather turns south again. This is NY so thats bound to happen soon enough.

*Clearly, I am too citi-fied for my own good because the idea of keeping a goat as a pet seems completely amazing to me.

  4. Oh you are a VERY lucky woman, m'dear!! LOVE that mirror! I have one almost just like it, except mine is mostly black painted wood with the heavy gold accents. Congratulations on the huge mirror score, but more importantly on the awesome MAN score! (Your hubby!). :)

  12. Well done to Mr Limestone!! Mirror looks perfect for what you want to do with it. Can't wait to see it up.

    I spoke to my Parents a few days ago, they had 4 days in New York as part of a huge trip and absolutely loved your City! Hope you got to enjoy some of the warmer weather :-)

  14. It looks so similar to the ornate frame in your inspiration pic. Work your magic on that baby! Tell Mr. L he's got us all weak in the knees...how sweet is he?!

    (When my pygmy goat gives birth, I'll send yo one. Just sayin'. =]

  15. Mr Limestone sounds the perfect partner. As for the goat - if I could only control what it ate (lawn not plants) I'd adopt one right away.

  18. I love the mirror and can't wait to see what you'll do with it. I also like the goat. Goats will eat anything, so good thing he didn't get hold of that ornate mirror edging. : )

  21. Would you put DoorSixteen and EddieRoss back on your blogroll? You're like my one stop shop for finding out if anyone has written a new blog.

  23. What a fantastic guy, and beautiful mirror! As for the goat, I used to have two. They were technically for milk and lawn "mowing", but my brother and I preferred them for games of tag. Ah... the good ol' days.

  24. That will be perfect for your idea! You are a lucky lady, indeed, to have such a thoughtful husband. My husband has "no use" for ebay or craig's list. ~Sigh~ He is so backwards...!!
