My new bathroom mirror... Oh, and a new giveaway!

Hello my lovelies!!!
Hope you are all well and have had a wonderful 'end of the week'!
Things here are busy as always.. but it is good to be busy, keeps me out of trouble ;)!
I wanted to share these pics with you..
My darling Mr Deekie Belle bought me this beautiful mirror for Mother's day! Isn't it pretty, I love the little venetian panels!
I am a total mirror nut, and have 8 around my home!
As I have said before, our home is only 'cottage size' so they serve to not only add beauty and character but they also work to make the rooms look larger. See, two mirrors in this bathroom,
...the one on the left you can only see into if you are getting in and out of the tub!
We painted the bathroom this colour a few months ago, hubby usually makes me match and pick colours, but when we did this room he chose this darker colour for the walls. It is a dulux colour called 'Yardbird'. We wainscoted the room so it is white gloss around the bottom and the dark colour is only up top. I am still not sure if I like it, maybe when we get a new vanity and tiles I will like it more. Until then I will just enjoy my mirrors ;)!Now onto the giveaway!
This little Amberworld redwork embroidery wall hanging is up for grabs!
Sorry the pics (as always!) are not very clear, I hung it against some white styrofoam packing as I just could not get a clear shot of it... hmmm, still no good.
Anyway, the embroidery is done on a gorgeous linen look cotton and I used a sweet Sandy Henderson henna fabric in pink/red as the border and bound it with a red swirly fabric that has a slight silvery sheen.
It is much prettier in person than in the photos, I will try and get a better shot of it tomorrow in the daylight.
Do you like the kitty hanger!?

The words are by Mary Ellen Chase.

(I should have written in there somewhere, there is no substitute in life for a bad photo, except a good photo help!!)

If you would like a chance to win it for yourself or your little reader, just join my blog and leave a comment!

I will draw it next Friday.

Back soon with more!
Have a great weekend!
Hugs! Jen xo

Your bathroom is beautiful. Good job. My husband loves mirrors also. And he uses every one of them often. :-)

Awwww. That is so cute. :) I will put my name in for my little reader (although the little girl in the design has much more hair than my little baldy).

I like the color for the bathroom -- it looks like a warm color. It is always nice to have a color that will give your face an extra glow when you look at it int he mirror.
