What is it about vintage mirrors that cast their spell and draw you into their aged beauty? Something about their blemished, cloudy glass creates an ethereal and ageless appeal. I’ve been collecting old mirrors for a while now and recently created this little vintage mirror vignette from various flea market and junk finds.
The small arched mirror was discovered at the Kane County Flea Market for just $10.
Although it’s small, it’s a thick, heavy mirror of good quality.
I found the shelf at the same flea market and love the clever way the vendor had attached an etched mirror at the bottom of the shelf. For $20, I couldn’t pass up its graceful curves and detailed etching.
Each year it comes back stronger and makes a great cut flower.
The aqua bottle in this vintage mirror vignette is from a local dump. I’ve found several vintage bottles there.
The rose print is also from the flea market and was purchased for one dollar; I simply cut it to size and decoupaged it onto the wood. I then used seam binding to tie it up with a small bow onto the shelf.
I’ll soon be placing some candles here for the autumn season, to keep it cozy in the dining room.
