This Just In!

Seriously, I just brought this in the house. I didn't even dust it yet, because I was so excited about it.

After leaving the flea market empty-handed today I headed home. When just a mere two blocks from my house I saw a sign for an estate sale.

It was at a creepy house that I walk by all the time and I've always wanted to see what it looked like on the inside--even creepier than I expected. The owner was running the sale and said he is an antique dealer and he is doing some remodeling. I'm not sure I believe the story.

BUT, I got this mirror for only $30. I only noticed just now that it is missing one strip of wood down the right side, but I will just take of the strip on the left and I like it better as a solid mirror.

(yes that is a popcorn trolly you see in the corner-the explanation for that will have to be another blog post.)


I'm going to put it in my dining room and I'm afraid that this purchase is going to be moving the dining room design up on the priority list. I'll keep you posted :)
