Mirror, Mirror, Mirror on the Wall

The spring sprucing of our main rooms requires a lot of 'reflection'.  From mirrors, that is.  I recently scored this old gold mirror (on far right) at a local antiques store.  The price was low because of a small chip in the gilding, but I love it that way.  I also love that the gilding is fading toward the bottom.


The dining room went from pink accents during Valentine season (posted here), to sky blue accents now.  A light touch of spring to come...


It is cheerful to see how much sunlight gets bounced around these mirrors, as well as the varied reflections of the cupboards and chandelier. 


I'll be sharing this vintage mirror at Vintage Inspiration Friday and figured the nest fits right into Feathered Nest Friday.  And who can resist candles at My Romantic Home's Show and Tell Friday?

Oh, and have you seen the latest issue of Jeanne D'Arc Living?  It is a special treat to receive one of these gorgeous issues around here, and this one was my Valentine's Day present.  It is absolutely breathtaking!!!  I love the spring colors infused into this issue.  My favorite article is about 'French Chic' style.  Scrumptious!  Here are some photos to take a peek:


Thanks so much to Roberta of Enchanted Treasures for prompt delivery, and putting a big smile on my face!!

j'adore your touches of pale blue everywhere. so light and airy. your collection of mirrors is so pretty and eclectic. i love the way you've hung them from ribbon and that none of them are a perfect "match." i also adore that sweet birds nest and eggs along with the very Jeanne D'arc-inspired rosary beads. And that sneak peel at the newest issue of the magazine makes me wish we could just grab it off the newsstands here in the usa! Alas..i will just have to enjoy YOUR photos and order myself a copy too!

It's so nice that your decor allows for changes in color here and there depending on your mood or the season! I love it and wish I could do it. I have mostly pastels, so changing anything would have to be like throwing a big splash of red in there! lol! Everything looks great, Susan. I need to get my hands on one of those magazines!

XO,
Jane
