    Love it, think i must go and get myself one of those boyfriends too, he looks pretty tall which I need ;-) Sarah I have been meaning to ask you for ages where you got your bed from, as it is so beautiful. I have been looking for ages to get a lovely iron bed but just haven’t been able to find one I like at the right price, i just can’t do the 2K plus that Laura Ashley is asking!

      IKEA have a very similar one though and it is cheap as chips

    Gosh, you are making me want a mirror like that!

  26. Oo-la-la! Ze boyfriend is so tall and lean, stylishly handsome and soooo smooooooth. He’s definitely a keeper. I’d been debating about purchasing this mirror, too. Looks so good in your home, I just may go ahead! Although I think my “boyfriend” won’t be so nice cuz he’ll show me all my flaws – lol!

  27. Love this! :) What an awesome mirror. IKEA is 25 minutes from my house…very dangerous.
