but that was absolute perfection to me.
yes it was a little high for my super deal loving heart
and there is where the struggle came in.
if I was in fact
bringing that beauty home with me.
and wished that there was another just like it.
pairs are not just my friend- they are a must. And I love them.
but a pair?
if you see more than one- it talks to you.
‘You need me. Because, I am the Lucy to your Ethel.
And if you leave me behind- you know you will regret it.
With big fat regret the minute you walk out the door’
One is good- but two would be amazing.
incredibly gorgeous antique mirrors in that shop?
of antique Louis Philippe mirrors.
both covered in gorgeous vintage brassy gold paint.
I did NOT need much more to push me over the must.have. edge
but as I was climbing the stairs to the attic to measure it
with the seller he pointed out something on the wall.
There was a second one.
My jaw dropped.
But I played it cool of course.
I called my husband for measurements in a couple spaces that I knew they would be perfect in
and he paused and said:
So end the inner argument
I bargained on price with the seller on a deal for both of them
and we met somewhere in the middle
But between you and me-
I was going to be forking over the cash and paying the asking price either way because
it was already a done deal in my mind.
My husband was right.
I was not leaving these two behind.
have frames with ever so slightly different details-
but they are a pair of beauties and I am completely in love.
And I actually love that they are ever so slightly different while being the same.
Because that makes them even more amazing.
I love the missing silvering it is one of my favorite touches- it is not being fixed at all.
But I was planning to a put a wood backing on
and to keep that silvering from flaking any further.
there is a pretty french floral ticking stripe fabric showing through
oh so subtly.
