Vintage Mirror Vignette

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.

Although it’s small, it’s a thick, heavy mirror of good quality.

 

Etched vintage mirror used as shelf via Town and Country LivingI 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.

I’ll soon be placing some candles here for the autumn season, to keep it cozy in the dining room.
