Mirror Mirror On The Wall

And so another Christmas has come and gone... Soon the decorations will come down and my eye will start to look for fresh updates to make around the house... Do you do this? Are you ever satisfied with your home?

Anyway, I've been dying to show you the latest addition to my mirror obsession, but I had to find a home for it and then Mr. Sweet Pea had to hang it for me. I stalked this bad boy for months at a local antique market, but the dealer was a bit of a pill over the price of it~~even dealer to dealer, and I had myself talked out of it actually. I mean, aren't we dealers in this to sell stuff? Alas, I caved in and made one last attempt and he finally gave me a deal I could live with. He said it is 1800's from an old Mississippi barber shop. This baby is heavy cast iron and projects out about 3 feet when extended fully. That was the tricky part about hanging it. But I mounted it above the sink in the hall bath with the accordian part flat on the wall and it looks fab. Do you agree?

Shelley, the mirror absolutely awesome. I can see why you wanted it so badly. You definitely don't see those everywhere. Your taste in decorating always makes me drool. Gotta go find my bib now, if I'm going to view anymore of your beautiful home!

I can see why you had to have this one. Truly a one of a kind. It's fabulous! I'd love to be able to see your home in person. I could spend hours looking through your photos.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and many blessings in the New Year.
