Mirror, mirror...

without a wall...

Which one is the coolest
centerpiece of all?

MINE!

Came home from Country Roads with an old,
beat up to perfection,
chippy mirror...



The idea was to use it to try a new technique,
but I felt in love with it
and since my house has very few walls and they already have enough stuff,
I had to find another place for my new friend...



So here it is, adding a little light to my farm table...


This is the first goodie I bought in over 1 year and that I will actually keep...
how's that for self control??

You have way more self control than I do. It looks wonderful as a centerpiece on your 2die4 dining room table. Love it with the burlap runner.

Enjoy your 4th of July weekend.

It looks perfect on the farm table! Some things are meant to be...at least that's what I keep telling myself.
If I really need a juicy rationalization, I call my daughter Lauren!

Don't we ALL come home with something from Country Roads? I have missed my store and go back to work tomorrow. I never thought I would miss giving directions to the bathroom, but I'm looking forward to it ;0)

Take care, Sue

Unbelievable self control. I'm swooning over your arrangement, plus I've been looking for a tureen.
