It's a Give-away!!!

Our historic house is big by 1865 pioneer standards; but not so big by 2010 standards.  When we restored the house we totally gutted the bathroom and had this lovely custom vanity (which is kitchen counter height) made for the space.  Our contractor made sure to run the wainscoting high enough to go above the light switches and plugs.  That put our antique mirror a bit higher than we would like.  For the record, I am 5 feet 5 inches tall (not particularly short) and I can see to do my hair but it's hard to get close enough to do a great job on makeup.  Even my husband, who is 6 feet 5 inches tall, has a hard time shaving in that mirror because it's a little far away.  Time to do something about it!

The challenge is to find accessories that fit well in historic homes; ones that don't look completely out of place.  I have just about decided that this freestanding swivel mirror  from Just Vanities.com might be perfect.  We have plenty of counter space on top of the vanity for it.  What do you think?

CSN stores is giving a $40.00 gift certificate to one of my readers, which can be used in any of their online sites (they have many).  Be sure to check on the specific item you choose, as shipping charges may apply on some purchases.  You have three chances to win this great give-away.  All you need to do is leave a comment on my blog before June 16th. You have another chance to win if you become a follower (just click on the FOLLOW icon on my sidebar).  You may already follow my blog; either way just leave a second comment stating that you are a follower.  Refer someone else to my blog and mention their name in one of the comments and you will have another chance.  The winner will be picked at random after June 16th and posted on the blog. 

Let me know what you think about the mirror and then check back to see if you've won.  The winner will need to send me their e-mail to receive the gift certificate.  It's that easy!

  1. I'd be afraid one sitting on the counter might have water splashed on it constantly. What about this one http://www.justvanities.com/Smedbo-FK430-SBO1186.html. I'm going to have to see your cute house one day! I have my eye on a pressure cooker at CSN stores.

  9. Back again to let you know I'm a follower! Thanks for commenting on my blog as well! ;-) I take it you're near Ephraim-I know Merrill makes his home base there. Are you originally from Ogden? I'm a huge Utah fan. Been a # of times. Many times skiing, but I also had friends in Ogden/Layton area. I think I must have lived their in another life. I have a huge yearning to live there. It's so bad, even today I was checking out real estate in St. George for a winter home option when we retire. LOL!! (120 MONTHS from now! LOL!!!!)
