I want a vintage english bathroom

My original plan to have a vintage bathroom was obviously foiled by Mr X. He gave me a beveled mirror with only 2.5 cm at the sides!!! He didnt even tell me that, and never even refer from the photo reference I showed him 2 months ago. Plus, he doesnt even bother to clarify or asked questions, he just assumed he "knows' what I want. I told him it was wrong when they installed the mirror for the first time, the mirror came with beveled sides. I told him the mirror design is completely wrong, he has to follow my reference and obviously it went past his ears to twilight zone. Anyway, I'm totally upset with the mirror, I dont even want to take a photo of it.

This is the reference I printed out and given him, cant even follow, totally useless :(

I need some ideas as how to fix the bathroom, I know I need some accessories but I'm totally out of brain juice at the moment. I kept these images for a while, maybe posting them will inspire me more.

Cupcake Toppers

Its been a while, since I created anything, I got inspired by cake toppers this afternoon when I was just doing some mindless surfing. I thought of doing some for Jolene's princess party, I wasnt happy with the first one I did, so after dinner I tried again using cloth. The result is much better :)

Handmade Felt Flower Cluster Brooch SGD$25

I got tired of packing, decided to take some pictures with Mr Bean's teddy. I made these 2 brooches few months back, but has yet to take some decent shots with them. Available 1 each.

Started Unpacking

Last week was really a crazy week, facing workers everyday plus putting up Mr X's constant bullsh%#, enough to drain all energy.

Dining Area

Guest Bathroom Sink - I'm always 'amused' by the size of this sink, my salad bowl is even bigger! According to Mr X, because of the cabinet I insist on having it, this is the best sink he can give me.

We have finally moved in!!!

Happy Birthday to me!!! This is a late entry, but I only have internet access only on last saturday, and I only just feel like doing something else besides cleaning and unpacking.

We moved in o
n 29th Aug and we discovered the house was only 70% done! Workers are in every corner of the house, sawing, fixing etc etc. And it doesnt help when Mr X was whining non-stop about needing more time, I obviously ignored him. I didnt even bother taking more photos, cause the progress is just too insignificant. Plus I only discovered the heater was not working in the middle of the night! @#%ing hell!

My walk-in wardrobe is finally ready! I just threw everything onto the shelves, will arrange it one fine day.

Mr X charged me $250 to do a crappy cloud ceiling. At first he got me a Chinese guy who says," xiao jie, wo jin liang mei you zhuo guo" (Miss, I try my best, I have never done it before). When I heard that, my eyeballs just traveled to New York visited Nat & Glenn and came back! I gave that guy a chance and guess what? He didnt even pencil the clouds before painting, he used a roller to shape the clouds!!!!!!!!!!!
At that point, I almost wanted to take the chair and hit Mr X, but that fella left after giving his instructions. Enough of bitching or else I will filled up one whole page just on the clouds ceiling.

I added butterflies, so proud of myself for being so clever. Pat Pat!
