A Mirror for Madison

A client requested a large mirror for her daughter's bedroom -
One of those really large mirrors that you lean up against a wall.
She found one on clearance and scored a great deal on it - but the look was not really teenage-girl appropriate.
It was black with gold trim.
Fine for an adult home - but not what she was looking for.

She brought the mirror and asked for a make-over -
the instructions were bright and "girlie" - include fashion, shoes, etc.
I think I accomplished the task.
Dresses, shoes, make-up, handbags, perfume, hairspray . . .
all things girl.

Of course - as usual - photos don't do it justice.
But it should brighten up a bedroom quite nice!

In other news -
we are experiencing rain . . .
rain . . .
and more rain.

I'm a born and raised Oregonian.
I know what rain is -
but I can't take this anymore.

How do you deal with overwhelming gray?
Because right now - all I want to do is crawl back in bed and pull the covers over my head.
I want to scream.
I have no patience. I used to tell my kids - my patience was the size of a watermelon and now it is the size of a grain of rice.
Yup - I'm kind of "DONE".

On Sunday - my husband grabbed me and pulled me out of the studio.
The sun had broke through the clouds.
He sat me down in a chair on our deck and we soaked up the warmth.
It only lasted for about 10 minutes - but for that 10 minutes, I felt so much better.
Please, please, please - mother nature - please give us a break with the rain so that we can be reintroduced to the sun.
I have always had a wonderful relationship with Mr. Sun and I would like to reignite it.
I promise not to complain about the heat.
And may I say, Mother Nature . . .Thank you - in advance.
