Le stunning !!

Wow, how gorgeous is this !

I bought this lovely frame on ebay of course, it was a mirror. Strangely when I hung it on the wall it suddenly turned all reflection into something you would see in the " house of mirrors " at an amusement park. Now, even though the mirrors made everyone look extremely tall and skinny rather than the alternative of short and fat when it was hanging sideways, I decided the mirror had to go. My wonderfully talented friend Anna painted me this gorgeous picture to put inside. Of course there was the dilemma of removing the mirror which I realised had been glued in... I couldnt bring myself to break it, I dont like the idea of 7 years bad luck hanging over my head, so I took it to the local framer who smashed it out on the spot and popped my new masterpeice in. It looks lovely hanging above the bed, Im thrilled..

PS I have been a little lazy blogging lately, just not enough hours in the day, I be visiting soon.
