French inspired mirror

Yes, I knew I was in trouble the day I walked into HomeGoods 
and found something so perfectly French vintage inspired

Something painted in beautiful soft colors
Something that is a perfect size
and something with just the right details and accents

Something you can instantly envision several spots where it might go in your house.

something you just know is going in your cart
and coming home with you.

I always keep an eye out for fabulously French style reproductions while shopping where ever I am. 
Finding this one stacked up with the tall mirrors at HomeGoods-  I could hardly grab it fast enough.
It's soft coloring, it's gorgeous details, it's vintage inspired design.
I adore it. 

Antique French mirrors are favorites of mine  I dream of vintage Louis and Trumeau mirrors-
 their design perfectly fits my French Cottage style and home. 
But even though this one is not an antique~ it's design and look was talking to me

When I got home,  I set it up on the sideboard to keep it out of the way until it found it's new home
and loved it there.
I think it might be one of those pieces that you kind of love anywhere it goes

It measures nearly 3' wide by 5' tall and the mirror is mottled to look old with 
loss of silvering spots all over- more in some areas- less in others- it was $150~ pretty awesome price
I am thinking about antiquing it a bit to darken the finish but for now
I'm just loving it.

So that's what happened.
I came, I saw, I sighed 
& I carted it home.

Happy Tuesday
