Mirror, mirror on the.....floor of my office?

When we bought our Kent Coffey Tableau dressers, they came with a mirror that supposedly went to the low dresser.  But in my investigations online, I haven't seen a single low dresser from the Tableau line that has a mirror attached to it.  I am starting to think it didn't even belong to that set.  We didn't want to attache it because there is a window above the low dresser in our bedroom so, we just stashed it in our office.  I really have no clue what to do with it.  I actually really like it; the wood stain, the shape.  But, where to put it?  It weighs a ton so hanging it on the wall seems really laborous.  Any suggestions?  (and yes, that is me in the photo, sans make up and hair being done.....)

Coffee Tables!

So lately, I have been in search of a coffee table to go with my sectional in our front room.  Well, really I have been in search for about a year but, my wants are so specific that finding said coffee table has become almost impossible.  I find ones that either need a lot of work or are far too expensive.  The issue is that I want a low height, round walnut coffee table.  And for some reason, this is close to impossible!  Below are some dream tables that seriously keep me up at night (ok, so not really.....but, you get the point).

Christening Dress

Ok so, I am not one of those retro-loving ladies that also dresses particularly retro.  Granted, I love the modern rockabilly mom as much as the next person but, I just can't bring myself to pull off that style 100% of the time.  However, I do have one vice: vintage dresses.  I own honestly about 150 vintage dresses that I have collected for about 15 years; ever since my love affair with thrift stores started.  So, when it came time to find something for my son's Christening next weekend, naturally I turned to vintage shops.  I went to few and couldn't find anything so I eventually resorted to Etsy.  Which in all honesty, I hate doing.  Most of the stuff on Etsy is far too overpriced for the quality and of course there is the inability to try anything on.  But, I found this beauty and felt I had to have it!
