MIRROR MIRROR ON THE WALL - some of my favourites

                 I have been collecting mirrors for months now - some antique and some vintage . All painted in "old white "One of my Favourite ASCP colour 


                                     

                            My favourite has to be this Antique Ornate Mirror
                     It is very heavy . As I guess most mirrors were in the day !!




                                                        

                    My next favourite is the Puffy Mirror - NOT REALLY !
                                            It reminds me of quilting  






    This is my TIN Mirror - It reminds me of the tin you would see on a ceiling 




                                      Next is my Vintage Wicker Mirror
                        Something like you see in the Caribbean or  Hawaii 




                               And  Finally a old vintage plain wood  mirror
                                                       Nothing special  

                      just helped someone to see just how wonderful they really are !!
