One of my favorite blogland friends Melissa challenged me to show my collection of mirrors. At first my mind went to hand mirrors...I don't have any. I decided this challenge would show the mirrors around my house...most of which are vintage. (Let me also add it is hard to photograph mirrors as that reflection is a tricky thing)
I don't just hang a mirror. I tend to decorate a mirror. I don't mind if there is some patina to the mirror and it makes my reflection wonky.
I have had this one forever. The garland is an old Christmas garland and on the tin plates I added floral decals to the center. The yellow frame is as found.
This round mirror was found at a local antique mall and was perfect for my vintage style bathroom.
This mirror was estate sale found and I tend to pull it out for holidays. The remainder of the year I have a floral print that hangs in this spot in the living room. I like the shape of the mirror and it is fun to decorate with. Here it is this Halloween.
I love this vanity mirror in Kate's room with the trifold. You can also catch a horrific glimpse into the chaos of her room with Christmas inventory.
This old medicine cabinet is also in Kate's room. She used to store her jewelery in it.
This mirror was estate sale found and this was the original color. I sanded it down a bit and there was pink underneath. I added the ceramic flower which is an old wall pocket vase.
At yet another estate sale I found this large old mirror that lives over my bedroom dresser. I display vintage bling on either side of it. A honeycomb garland decorates it as well.
In our upstairs bathroom I have a small oval mirror that hangs from a floral hook by a colorful ribbon. (and shockers...this is an old Pottery Barn item...not vintage) I found this great old mirror on a road trip with Amy. It lives in Ben's room.
In my studio I have this skinny vintage mirror that hangs on one side of my french doors. I think it might be an old doorplate. I use it to see how much glitter is on my face when I leave the studio after crafting!
I also have a few odds and ends mirrors. I sometimes use these for a display at home or at one of my shows.
If you have an idea for a future challenge, leave me a comment and finish the sentence "Show me your collection of ____". A new collection each week.
