help me decide...


i made my weekly trip to home goods this weekend and picked up a few things. i purchased this round mirror and can't decided if i like it or not. ben, of course, doesn't care. it is a nice beveled mirror. do you all think i should keep it or get a large rectangular one? thoughts? they had a large rectangular one that was $70 cheaper...
i originally thought i would put the round mirror over the piece by the front door, but it made it look a little too much like a dresser. i put this large piece of art there instead.
i also picked up this pretty minty blue lamp for only $40! it matches my rug and drapes (that i have yet to make) perfectly!
this is the fabric i'm going to make drapery panels out of...eventually.

Looks great! That lamp was a great find... its looks way more luxe than a $40 price tag.

I also really like the round mirror. I think it really works with the rest of the "tablescape."

Love the round mirror! I think a retangle mirror is too typical ya know? Keep it! LOVE reading your blog- wish I could be as crafty as you.

I like the round mirror. I think it compliments the roundness of the lamp - which I also love!

ooo I love Home Goods! It's impossible to leave that store without buying something. I like the round mirror, it's more interesting then the typical square, and I love that lamp :)

Round mirror for sure! Love the lamp...I couldn't resist it either. We bought the green one, and then went back for another light blueish one with a funky lamp shade. That place does me in!

Love, love, love that lamp. It would go perfectly in my guest room. It's a long shot but I'm headed to my local Home Goods this weekend to see if they have it. Love the mirror too.
