It's 8:40pm on a Thursday and I just had a large slice of pie and a glass of wine for dinner. No lie. But I am pumped about my busy day! I'm not going to dive into that boring list of "look at what I've accomplished today" but I will say that I ordered custom, bathroom vanity cabinets and got mirrors.
So. Many. Decisions. are being made around here and it is starting to feel Real. A few choices that we've made in the last few days are:
Selecting bathroom vanity tops- which are going to be gorgeous onyx!
Selecting brick style and size along with mortar color.
Ordering primer paint- 100 gallons is all.
Still looking at key lighting fixtures, bathroom faucets, wood flooring choices and designing custom sliding doors.
But mostly the BIG news is the antique mirrors I've gotten. The first one, for the foyer area I think, is from the Weathervane Antique store here in Macon and it is a show stopper. Let me just say that I do love Weathervane and I never leave there empty handed. While I was shopping for some inspiration pieces for a styled shoot that I'm planning at Emerson Fields (more details in an upcoming blog about this) I saw this gorgeous, gilded mirror and I knew it would be a perfect fit. I love the juxtaposition of concrete floors, brick, steel and oh, here's a gorgeous antique mirror that just shines. Also, on a little side-field-trip with my mom and my daughter, Madyson, we came across this cute gold framed, mirrored tray and we all agreed that it needed to come home with me.
The second mirror! Oh, I can't even put into words how EXCITED I am about this beauty. I mentioned to a friend (who's son is also getting married here this summer) that I was shopping for some antique gold mirrors and she happened to have one. I met up with her this morning and she delivered an HEIRLOOM! This mirror belonged to her great-grandmother, Ethel Farmer of Economy, MO. It had been passed down in the family to my friend, Linda Mason. Linda did not have a place of honor for the mirror and wanted to offer a piece of her family history to Emerson Fields. (insert jumping up and down excited squeals from myself)
This mirror is from around the 1910 era and it will be perfection in the bridal dressing room. I just can't thank Linda Mason and her mother, Phyllis Griffin, enough for this special gift. This unique find has inspired me and will set the tone for the bridal suite.
Tomorrow we will immerse ourselves in hanging shiplap, drawing a winner for our "Share the Love" contest, ordering interior doors, purchasing restroom fixtures and lunch. I vow to have a real meal for lunch tomorrow.
