3 years ago today I married my best friend. Time flies when you're having fun!

This gold mirror has been in my family for a while. I mean, it's not heirloom or anything, but it was on the wall in our home since I was about 10. Then my parents moved to a new home about 8 years ago and didn't want it. I have had in my apartment since. With the move to a new apartment, I have gone with a modern, casual decor, and the gold doesn't really work with the space anymore. So I decided to paint. And failed.
There it is, all taped up and ready to go! I bought a blue paint to try to match our backsplash and/or curtains...
You will see the blue color is almost gray. So that was the look I was going for. The paint I bought was beautiful and I really do love it, just not on the mirror.
|While this pic was taken at night, I think the flash on the camera shows you the true color|
You can see from the picture that the blue/gray color in the curtains, which is what I was going for, doesn't match the blue at all. Now, I am not trying to be all matchy-matchy and get them perfect, but I think the hue is all wrong. Oh well! Live and learn. I will have to try to find a way to fix it. I have some leftover silver paint which I may try to lightly cover, but I think I should just resolved by repainting :(

As I rapidly approach the big 3-0 (ah!!), I am staring to think about what kind of party I'd like to have. Well, not really a party necessarily, but a celebration of sorts. I am thinking Napa with my friends and family. We shall see if the Money Gods will allow it ;)
In the meantime, I came across a birthday invitation kit, aka "Party in a Box" and had to share. It's by a designer named Amanda Jane Jones, and her work is so unique and adorable. Enjoy!
