Do I have a Mirror Obsession?????

Hi Bloggerettes, what's cookin?
Did I ever tell yall how much I love mirrors?  I probably did already but gosh, I just wanna tell you again. 
Wonder what is wrong with someone who loves mirrors???  I'm sure the psych people have a term for it or Sigmund Freud felt there was some sinister repressed hostility because your Mother used to beat you over the head with a Dr. Spock book! 
Mirror, Mirror on the wall, whose the fairest of them all.....why, it's
Sissie!!!
"You're so vain....you probably think this blog is about you...."



You know, I'm soundin a little bit goofey today......must be that
MacDonald's Iced Vanilla Coffee....(I wonder what they put
in that stuff!!)
Okay, you guessed it.
I'm having trouble coming up with something to blog about
and this is the best I can do.
I hope yall still love me.

~~hugs~~


PS...
I happen to know that there is one blogger by the name of Stephanie at Angelic Accents
that has big time love for mirrors too.  So check out
her blog and you will see what I mean.

Sissie, I so enjoy your posts! They're fun and full of personality; yours! Your beautiful mirrors remind me of Stephanie's at Angelic Accents. Are you two related by any chance? She collects them too. The mirrored tray with the little pink teacup on it is just precious! I love mirrors myself because they reflect light and just add a little finesse to a room. Thanks for sharing yours. When you get a free moment stop by and read my Love Story, but pour yourself a cup of tea or coffee first. Hope you're having a lovely week.

Blessings,
Sandi

Your mirrors are beautiful, Sissie...all one thousand of them! ;-D

I actually love mirrors of all shapes and sizes. They reflect the light in small rooms like mine. I enjoyed seeing yours and more of your pretty home. The sleepy kitty is precious!!

You have some beautiful mirrors, Sissie! I don't blame you for loving them! I love the bunny on your dresser, too.

Alaina said...

Don't worry if someone tells you, you are vain because you have too many mirrors, just tell them it brings in light and you are fulfilling your vitamin D requirement. That should quiet them. I love mirrors too, so I just love yours, they are so you. As for the not thinking of what to blog thing, yeah I think we all go through that.

Sissie I am so with you on the mirror thing. I always say it is not for my reflection that I love mirrors but for the light and life they bring to a room. (please feel free to use that if you wish). Seriously I even put mirrors in my yard. I have 3 in my backyard and one on my front porch. You can see the new one I just bought on my porch post today. A girl has to have a mirror!! Fun post, Kathysue

Ginger said...

I have a thing for mirrors also, I am here in my white room and counting my mirrors I have 5 in one room. I think they add a lot and make a room look bigger. Yours are beautiful.

MosaicMagpie said...

Mirrors are great when you have a spot that you are not sure what kind of art work will look right a mirror usually works. Love the post and seeing your beautiful photos.

Donna said...

Hi there Sissie,
You can never have too many mirrors! You've got some fabulous ones! I especially love the Venetian mirrors. Gorgeous! And that is one sweet kitty!

bullie_mama said...

LOVE your mirrors. I brought 2 home the other day and the BF says "yah, because we definitely NEED more mirrors.! I guess I am addicted too!

The mirrored fern prints, where did you happen upon those? Pottery Barn or Ballard Designs by chance? I collect mirrored frames! Thank You!

Sissie....you crack me UP!!! I love your sense of humor and I love mirrors too!!! When I had my antique store they always sold like hotcakes ~ your collection is so beautiful too. I love how they reflect light and seem to make a room glow. I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! hugs and love, Dawn

June said...

Sissie you are so funny. I did think this blog post was about me, cause I love mirrors too. I have them in so many places that there is no safe place to walk around in your undies. Your mirrors are beautiful and I'm sure they reflect all the loveliness in that cottage of yours.
hugs

Jane said...

Add me to the list of mirror loving bloggers. I have a collection of vintage, frameless mirrors that hang in my guest bath and I love them. Even though I ran out of room I continue to buy them when I see them for a good price. I also have 12 vintage hand mirrors that I plan on hanging too.
Your mirrors are gorgeous!
Jane

However, I was dying to come here and get my "Sissie fix" as I've just been soooo crazy busy lately! I was DETERMINED to sit here and catch up with you!!!!

So as I was catching up (and making sure that you didn't have fun while I was gone) I see that you went flea spying...those booths are great! Thank you for taking me along...I love to see vignettes and get some great ideas!!! (though my ideas rarely become real! haha)

PLUS...you've received some WONDERFUL gifts girl!!! Lulu and Dorthe are so sweet...lucky you!

And as for those gorgeous burlap pillows...well, if I could spit out that kind of beauty girl, I would have NO shame in showing them off too! They are fabulous!

aaaahhhh, my "Sissie fix" feels great! I feel so much better! I guess you could compare it to your iced vanilla coffee! hahahaha
Love ya girl...
Have a wonderful Mother's Day Weekend!!!!

Shelia said...

Hi Sissie! Oh, what gorgeous mirrors in your pretty home! The only thing wrong with this post is you didn't poke your tiny little head into the shot so you could have joined my party today! It's not too late! :)
BE a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

A Cottage Muse said...

I did a post a while back about my mirror obsession too! You have a lovely collection!

tarnishedandtattered.blogsot.com said...

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who's the funniest blogger of them all? She likes ruffles, burlap, lots of pink, sometimes there are melted goobers in her seat. She buys it shabby, from England & France, & if she's really excited she'll wet her pants! Okay, my secrets out. I drink all day! LOL That's for you Sissie! Happy Mother's Day! Lisa

Kat said...

You have excellen choice in mirrors! Nothing obsessive aabout it at all!

CARMELINA LOUNSBURY said...

Well, well...mirror mirror on the wall!
i love this post...and sometimes we just need to do a 'whatever' post...and you're always giving so much! so no worries mate!

I think if you were to walk around with a mirror in your hand we could dub you 'vanity smurf'...lol but you're okay for now!

ciao bella

Lynn-Teacupstitches said...

Ditto Lisa at TarnishedANDtattered's comment!!! Just about sums it up perfectly and I couldn't have said it better or funnier HA!!!

Necel from the Old House in Texas said...

Sissie... You are the funniest Blogerette in all of Blogland. I just love reading your posts. Your home is so beautiful and you cute as a bug. I just adore your blog.

Terri Smith said...

Sweet Sissie, your humor makes for the best visits to your place. Girl..you are hilarious!

Oh and BTW..my name is Terri and I'm a Mirror-Holic too. Have way too many to even count throughout my home. And I know for sure it's not because I go to each one admiring myself every day..I think mirrors open up my spaces. They offer shiny spots of reflection where there might have otherwise been none.

Hey, I think maybe this mirror-addiction might be hereditary..my sister and brother suffer from the same affliction. Ha ha

Isn't it nice that we're not alone? *smiling brightly*

Enjoyed so much visiting you today!
Blessings & Joy, Terri

Your mirrors are such beauties, just as you are! I'm especially fond of your entranceway into your bedroom ~ such a dreamy vignette!!
