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.
