Corners of my home...


...and no, this will not be a picture of my fierce anything dancing to any kind of music...

(and, we can all breathe a sigh of relief)

This picture is taken in the tiny hallway in the middle of my home...The wall of shame (that would be family pictures) is directly to your right. I recently acquired the vintage hourglass shaped mirror at the top of this picture at a thrift...I was a bit sad because you can't see the sweet etched flowers at the top (or the fact that a lot of the silver is wearing off...but, I have an affinity for thrashed vintage mirrors, yet another thing to put on the list...) as I couldn't get the picture at a good angle without falling backwards into my bed (and some days once you get up and out, it's better not to tempt fate and tumble back in) or becoming a contortonist (something I would love to be, but no amount of yoga really prepares one unless one it double jointed does it?)

After acquiring said mirror, I decided now would be the perfect time to hang the little mirror on the bottom left as well (little nothing, this thing weighs a ton, and I'm praying it doesn't come crashing down on my foot as I pass by it. It had previously been sitting on the floor...and has the sweetest little green glass knob on it as well...it was a door in it's previous life you know) and the mirrors now reflect the gentle twinkling of the lights that hang on the canopy of my bed...Plus, the composition of the two mirrors makes for the most whimsical cutting up of my body when I look into them...I tell you, some days it's like living in a fun-house around here!

you can tell by the red polka-dot Mary-Jane Campers I'm wearing...
kind of clown-like aren't they?
...hey, they matched the polka-dot shirt...
what do you expect?

Those old mirrors are so heavy! I have a tiny one similar to the one on the bottom, and it weighs a fortune! We have lathe and plaster walls, so I've yet to get a drill that will do the trick for hanging it!

Adore you kitchen!! :D

I love old mirrors that show their age, too. The shape of your newest one is marvelous!
