Old Shabby Mirror Love

 
I got a little cash for my birthday, from my dear, sweet mother in-law.....of course I couldn't wait to spend it :) 
So, off on a hunt I went. I wasn't sure what I wanted but, when I saw her, I knew I had to have her!
 
 
She's my sweet, new mirror and she's little, and shabby and old.
 
With gorgeous details in gold, plaster relief.
 
And chips and cracks and peeling paint.
 
For now, she sits on our mantel displaying a precious, locket of old.
 
It's one of my special belongings, now, to cherish and behold!
 
Thank you, Mom...this will forever remind me of you and the beautiful, kind and loving person that you are!
 
Stay tuned for my white, mantel reveal...the last and very sentimental re-do, before we make our big move!!!
 
Love, Hugs and Kisses,
JP
