Vintage mirror

When we were in Wales we went into a great little 'new' antique shop.  The lady who runs it with her sister was friendly and we had a good chat - she has a studio in part of the small shop and makes and sells stone jewellery and handmade handbags which were lovely & bright in carribbean colours.

Anyway I found this small vintage 'dresser' mirror which now has pride of place on a chest of drawers (which need painting) in one of the bedrooms...


It's a lovely dull gold, is quite clear but has some age speckling which I think is lovely.  It's so pretty & was rather a bargain - the best kind of vintage. Have a lovely weekend everyone. x

  3. Awhile ago, you left a very lovely comment on my blog about the breakup I was going through. I'm finally reaching a point of responding, and can't seem to figure out your email address, so I'm writing it as a comment here:


    Aw, thank you so much for your incredibly kind words! I appreciate it tons. It's a great reminder to read that things will look up -- they have been day by day already. It's also comforting to read about how you met your husband at a point when you had stopped looking, as a reminder of how waiting for the right person is totally worth it. Thanks again, you're so thoughtful!
