Mirror,Mirror on The Wall

There I was meandering around the flea market and then I spied the mirror.  I have always loved these old, etched mirrors.  I stopped, looked and then said NO Freda you don't need this.  On I went home and all the next week I thought about it.  I went back the next sunday and could not find the booth.  I stopped and talked to a vendor I know and he said oh I just saw one being loaded into  van about 2 spaces up.  I thought well you should have bought it when you had the chance.  I wandered up and said to the gal that I had looked at it and she said that could not have been mine because all I had was a dresser with a large mirror.

Around the market I went and there it was.  this time just a little bartering and it was mine.  A neighbor and her hubby helped me hang it in my bathroom.  That large wall needs something large.  I am very pleased every time I go in there and see it.  Now if I could only figure out how to photograph it without all the other stuff showing up in there including me.

Oh Freda, that is a fabulous mirror! I've never seen anything like that before. I mean, I've seen etched mirrors of that vintage, but the design on yours is exquisite. What a great find!

Lovely mirror, but even nicer to see your reflection. I think it was definitely meant to be yours.

Lol - I know just what you mean - mirrors are such lovely things, but it would be nice if they didn't have to reflect everything... So glad you found it!

Wow! That mirror looks divine! You really have such great taste. It looks elegant hanging on the wall, because of its fantastic shape and design. You really have an eye for pleasant things like that, Freda! Thanks for sharing that! Kudos and and all the best to you!

When deciding about things that really interests you, it’s very difficult to say no to yourself. Haha! But despite that fact, I think you’ve made a great decision. That is a very good-looking mirror, by the way; the designs on them look very unique. Anyway, thanks for sharing this with us. Good day!
