NKOB.....Antique & Venetian Glass Mirrors
Since I'm the new kid on the block, I thought it might be fun to help everyone get to know me a little better by seeing part of my home, which is very important to me. I collect antique mirrors, & a few of the newer Venetian Glass mirrors, too, so I had the idea to post a few of my favorites here each week for you to see how I use these in my home. Some I feature will be from my personal collection, some will be ones that I list for sale in my eBay store & listings, or on my website, others will be ones that I have already let go on to another loving home. But I promise, ALL will be Spectacular!

This is one of my all time favorites. I kept one of these until DH gave me another for an anniversary present. I'll post that one later. This is one I try to offer fairly often in my eBay store. You just can't beat a heart shaped mirror!!

My friend Heather, at Pretty Petals Boutique, featured her gorgeous bedroom dresser (My Beloved Vanity) back a few weeks ago on her blog, so run over there & give it a look. Mine is similar, in fact, I think I could take just about anything in Heather's sweet home & it would fit in perfectly here, too. I told her I'd post a picture here of my dresser, so here it is.

I've also added some Rachel Ashwell plates above my dresser now. I bought the cute little butter pats framed piece & the 2 others at Target last year. I love all things shabby of hers!

Have a wonderful evening!

I see that you and I like some of the same Christmas-y things. I love vintage Christmas, especially pink bottle brush trees!
