Simple Adornment

 This chippy old mirror is one of  my most favorite things. I spotted her all alone at the side of someones barn as I was pulling away from their garage sale. Twenty-five dollars and she was coming home with me! There are very few things in my house that I feel any attachment to,but she is one of them. Several have tried to talk me out of her. No way! I'll lay across her and hang on for dear life if need be (unless of course I were to be threatened by a weapon).Well,I rather doubt anyone is that desperate for an old mirror anyway! Ha!



 Though I think she is beautiful as is, I thought perhaps she deserved a little adornment. Now as you can see she is a simple beauty,so nothing sparkly! Just some antique buttons strung together suit her just fine!(By the way my walls aren't that shade as the pics show,more of a grayish blue.)




                                                                     Simplicity!


All the furry creatures of the family are enjoying the warmth of a sunny window! Can't blame them it's 7 degrees here and I am so over winter!

One last but very important thing , Thank you for being a follower. I get so excited every time I see someone new has joined us. I get giddy actually. I even clap in sheer delight! Maybe even look a little foolish, but hey, who's lookin?

Hi Tami, Love the button adornment on your sweet mirror. Glad you came by via Erin. It's always nice to meet another Buckeye Blogger. We are planning a get-together as soon as this awful winter weather breaks. Drop me an e-mail and tell me all about yourself. I'm in Dayton.

It is a beautiful mirror and I can see why you're so attached! The button garland is a perfect addition!

Isn't it funny how our wall colors sometimes look totally wrong in the pictures we take?! My bathroom curtain post shows my walls as yellow and they really aren't!! LOL!
