LATEST OBSESSION - Sunburst Mirrors

I keep seeing examples of Sunburst mirrors everywhere, they're calling me (saying "BUY ME"). Hmm. Oh well, I don't have anywhere to put one and the ones I love ain't cheap so in the mean time I'll just look at the pictures and add them to my "NEED ONE" section.

Some in situ pics below, the first Lonny one is perfect - I love the convex mirror.

Just to continue with the theme of receiving things in the old-fashioned post...check out this beauty!

All the way from Uzbekistan and wrapped in old fashioned brown paper and string this contained my first Ikat fabric purchase (bought from Ebay). It's 300 x 47 cm and hand woven silk/cotton in hot pink and white chevrons. When I first opened it I was a little disappointed as I thought it was going to be brighter pink but actually the softness has grown on me and I love it. 


Right now it's living as a runner on the table with some lovely hydrangeas but I think it might be a wee bit pink to stay there too much longer. Maybe I'll make it into cushions...

..and following on from the last post...I LOVE stationary, especially personalised, old-fashioned embossed cards, writing paper and note cards. Here are some of my favourite places to pick up the best...
