Miraculously, the glass did not break. The hanger, however, left a nasty scar on the wall above my dresser.

It was Zach’s idea last weekend to move the mirror to our tiny bathroom.

The effect is amazing. Of course, there’s the whole room-enlargening effect. But that old mirror also brings something personal to a room that we’ve otherwise furnished sparsely with store-bought, assemble-it-yourself cabinets. That mirror makes me stupid happy.

Did you accomplish any projects over the holiday weekend?

Have you ever completed one very small task and been overjoyed with the result?
