Do you have mirrors in your home?
Sure you do.
We have to have at least one mirror to check on our
wrinkles fair skin once in a while!
I don't know why I have so many mirrors. I'm not a vain person and I seldom look
in one to check on things unless I'm doing my hair, putting on makeup (rarely),
checking on my clothes before I go out.
Okay, so I told a fib.
I do look in the mirror ~ once in a while.
The mirror above was in the front entry hall of the home I grew up in.
I don't know anything about it. I have thought of painting it white
or heirloom white but haven't made the effort yet.
I believe it once hung on a dresser or commode as it has two metal
knobs, one on each side, to attach it to a frame.
It has a nice curvy shape to it and a little carving at the top.
The mirror glass is not original but has been there for a long time.
It is in the spare bedroom which I am trying to redecorate and get
ready for my family coming in 3 weeks.
This mirror also hung in our home and is now at the top of the stairs from the front door.
It is very old with it's gilt frame and wood back. My mother told me if I didn't like
the mirror that there is a picture underneath I could show instead.
I took it apart one time but the picture was only a paper print of a grecian woman
or something or other. Maybe I should check that out again....
Another mirror ~ or two!
Oh my, you must think I'm terribly vain.
Really, I'm not. I love mirrors in the living room to reflect light and make the room feel larger.
Isn't that why you have mirrors in your living room?
This white, chippy framed mirror is very old too. I think it came from a family home
via my mother.
It has it's original beveled mirror.
When I sit in "my" chair in the living room I can see the kitchen window reflected
in the mirror ( and the dirty dishes and paper towel wadded up on the counter).
I noticed this one day after we had our new kitchen finished. The old kitchen had
a bank of cupboards that blocked the view and the light from the window.
This pretty vintage mirror is from my mil's and is more of a bedroom mirror.
I like the daisy pattern etched in the glass.
This is my favorite mirror just inside the front door. I love the old wood and gold
frame that was once a picture frame and someone has added the mirror.
It has it's original wood back as well and is very old.
It's nice to have a mirror by the front door to check on your wrinkles and fair skin
Do you see the letters scratched in the gold?
It says MINNI'e' or 'c'. It's hard to tell.
This frame came from my father's side but there are no Minnie's
in the family that I know of. Unless it's Minnie Mouse. Nah!
I wonder who etched those letters and why?
Do you have mirrors hanging in your house?
Do any of them have an interesting history?
I'd sure like to hear about it.
I'm joining these sites today for:
We're supposed to receive 3 days of sun and heat starting today
then 2 days of rain, Monday and Tuesday. That's a perfect weekend!!
Blessings to you!
