    OMG, you are KILLING me! You are so hilarious and wonderful! I started reading your blog about an hour and a half ago, and I haven’t been able to stop. Between this post and the one about the built in wardrobe, I was laughing so hard, my husband actually though I was crying from the other room. I’ve been reading all of your home renovation posts because you’re just so GOOD. I already know I will never ever renovate a house with my husband. We have a hard enough time moving from one house to another with each other. It usually involves him expecting me to conjure up some brute strength I don’t possess to help him move something ridiculous. The last time we moved, he wanted help moving the ginormous old heavy tv that I had already almost dropped when trying to help load it. I declined and said we should wait for someone with beefier arms than my own. After failing to convince me (because he was seriously ready to be done with that crap), his rage helped carry the other side of the tv for him. I’m sure moving is just the tiniest taste of what renovating a house with him would be like. Kudos to you and Paul for still being married.

Hooked on the first post I read ( because my daughter is a sweetheart who sent us here) You made me laugh my head off and think ” she’s got a good hubby like mine is” and “poor guy” hahaha!! I totally LOVE the mirror named Kingdom! (and you have two! TWO!)

    I laughed so hard, I cried. Then I read it out loud to my husband, and I managed to make it intelligible through my tearful laughter. Why was I laughing so hard? Because my husband is the California version of Paul! God bless them both.

    Ok first things first….I totally love the story of the “Kingdom” mirror. I was giggling the whole time. This of course made my husband come check out what was going on and then the following comment…If you ever do that to me we are going to have a problem….which of course made me giggle more because I would totally do it and have before. I have yet to be lucky enough to find a “kingdom” mirror but other things have made it in to my home that make my husband’s head look like it may explode.

    Good for you and your mirror troll! It is beautiful! My poor husband may have had some sort of fit when I said, “I need one of those.” But, it would totally be worth it to be able to say that I found one and needed him to go pick it up!

    Thanks for the wonderful story!

    I absolutely agree that you need this mirror! I love that it matches the one in the front entry! I love your decorating sense. I love that your husband puts up with you. He has to, he chose you. Even if he ACTS like this is an incovenience. He LOVES it, because he LOVES you! I saw this linked on FB & had to check it out. I am NOT a craig’s list shopper. My hubby is. But we don’t seem to find amazing things (then again we are in a small town (pop. 10,000) in Idaho). Will keep trying. Thanks for your storytelling. You are fun! I will be going to find you on FB now!

    Speechless. And you’ve explained exactly why it’s right to answer Cragislist ads when the muse calls.
