I am very partial to mirrors – and it would seem I am in a minority because when I go to auction I can pick them up for peanuts.
I’ve bought some very ornate ones and some very simple ones and I like to change them around to suit the season and my decor.
I am very happy with my bedroom mirrors…they go with our hand painted Indian furniture perfectly.
I fell in love with this unique shaped mirror and picked it up for $15. Very happy camper!
It was quite a buy – the hall stand and mirror for $35!
Oh yeah, and just to the right there’s an antique brass fire extinguisher which we found at an auction in Tacoma, Washington when we went on a Picking Expedition. The only one we ever went on, incidentally…
Entrance Foyer at my B&B
The blue ceramic mirror was made by a wonderful Irish artist and friend, Orla Kominski, and it is now in the stairway.
I picked the gold one up for $45 at the auction
It is really nicely gilded and it has a beautiful inlay
I love the simplicity of this solid old oak mirror and it looks great with the hall table.Cost me $25.
