My New Ornate Mirror

This is my newest addiction,  to my never ending quest of finding the perfect look for whatever area of my home I am interested at the time!  This time was the dining room.  I wanted a dramatic look over the buffet and had tried several looks.  I had even purchased a mirror and still it was not the look I wanted so I thought,  I will just have to wait!  
 One day I thought, go by one of your favorite shops Betty, I truthfully had not been out and about for awhile.  
I went in and was talking to Ms. Vicki, that is what my daughter has always called her.  She has such a beautiful collection of antiques  and items that she decorates so beautifully.  As we were walking through, I spotted this huge ornate mirror and asked if she was selling it. She said I was really planning on painting it because of the gold look on it!  I told her NO...I want it that way. That is what I have been looking for. WAS THAT LOOK,,,SO NEEDLESS TO SAY I OR SHE LOADED THIS HUGE MIRROR IN MY SUV AND I BROUGHT IT HOME.  IT DID TAKE ME A FEW DAY'S WAITING ON SOMEONE ELSE TO HELP UNLOAD IT....NEVER HAPPENED SO, ONE DAY I GO OUT AND LOOK IT AND DETERMINED I CARRY IT INTO THE HOUSE STOPPING ONLY 3 TIMES.  I GET IT TO THE DINING ROOM AND LEAN IT AGAINST THE WALL AND CALL IT GOOD FOR NOW.  
THEN I LOOKED AT THE BACK OF IT AND SOMEONE IN THE PAST HAD HUNG IT WITH WIRE?  THEN I LOOKED AT THE HOOKS AND THOUGHT THEM TO BE SOUND IF HUNG CORRECTLY SO, I MEASURE AND INSTALL THE BOLTS IN THE WALL AND THEN,  I HAVE TO WAIT BECAUSE, THERE IS NO WAY, I CAN LIFT THIS MIRROR TO HANG IT!   FINALLY....MY DAUGHTER WAS HERE AND I ASK HER IF SHE THOUGHT WE COULD DO IT? 
WELL...HERE IT IS...AND I LOVE IT AND SO WANT TO ENJOY DECORATING WITH IT FOR ALL SEASONS.


CHRISTMAS DECOR  ON THE WAY....
