Late night, last night playing games and eating-6 kids running around yelling and having a good(sometimes a little grumpy) time. The Smith Hotel's yearly January 1st's tradition of heading to the snow for some snowman building and sledding with friends is minus Mrs. Smith and Snow(the dog). I am not a lover of snow or being cold. Maybe it has something to do with growing up in Southern California (we weren't rich-my dad was an elementary teacher and we shopped at Kmart not Nordstroms). So the house is quiet and I decided to fix my mantel.
I added shutters that I had purchased at a thrift store for $3. I bought them without having any clue what to use them for but I couldn't pass them up. I felt like more "height" was needed around the mirror. What do you think?
