More Obsessions!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Most of you that follow my blog know that I have a mirror obsession, well one of many obsessions!
I just added another vintage round mirror that matches one I found last year, and also an oval mirror found at a thrift store.
I love the rimless and venetian styles and I'm always on the lookout.

This pretty little baby was found by one of the dealers at Miss Minnies and of course, I had to have it. 

Can't you just see this sitting on top of a small dresser or table?

You know I had to paint was kinda of a brown color and, being in a hurry to transform it, there is no before picture!

Another booth owner had this sweet vintage mirror that now belongzs to meez!

I also obsess over little wooden stools....

So, what are you obsessing over these days?

I love your mirrors, Sissie! They are so pretty. I also love little stools like that. You can do so much with them. Hope you have had a great weekend.

I love little stools and chairs also....they are perfect anywhere!

Shelia said...

Hi Susieness! Oh, I love your mirrors and this sweet little new one is adorable!! I can't imagine it any other color than white!
Can you come to my kitchen party Wednesday? It's called Heart of the Home and we'll be showing our kitchens. I would love to have you come.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh, that mirror is just fabulous! I love things like that. I also love little stools and have two or three. My neighbor that just moved left a sweet little one with me that I want to paint and do something with soon. It has the "cute" factor that I just love!

Jane said...

Love the mirrors. I have a collection of frameless ones and a collection of hand mirrors too. We wouldn't make good shopping partners....we would be wanting the same things!
Have a great week.

Donna said...

I love all of your gorgeous mirrors, Sissie! Your newest additions are perfect! I know just what you mean about being too excited when starting a painting project to remember to take a before shot!!

debi said...

Oh my goodness Sissie, you have a beautiful collection of mirrors!! I love your new one with the frame, which I agree, definitely needed to be white!

Lisa @ Fern Creek Cottage said...

I understand your obession. Your mirrors are just beautiful! I bet you never leave the house with lipstick on your teeth, ha!
I love your little white stool. It is so charming!!
Hugs, Lisa

Hi Sissie, love your wall of mirrors. They look great together! I too have started a wall of mirrors but have a long ways to go yet before it's done. thanks for the inspiration! take care, Maryann

Sherrie said...

Oh no, we didn't know you had a mirror obsession, oh no not at all. They are all gorgeous. As usual, I am drooling over your collection.

Mary Ellen said...

love all your mirrors Sissie and love the way you have displayed them!!

Nancy said...

Hey Sissie,
I really like your collection of mirrors. I think they are very cool. I never see rimless mirrors like that. Either I'm shopping in the wrong places or there just aren't that many around here.

Have a great week!!

Guess what? I came to see you at Miss Minnie's Antiques on Friday, but you weren't there. The gal working said that you must have been there that morning, because she noticed your booth looked like it had new items in it. You had some beautiful things. I wanted that screen door, but couldn't figure out how to get it into my car for the trip home. Loved your burlap pillows and your burlap table runner. Sorry I missed you, but I loved visiting Miss Minnie's store. Went to the Fancy Flea too. My sister and I spent the whole day on Friday thrifting at the beach. What fun!!! Love & blessings from NC!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love your mirrors! They look wonderful with all your white.

Dorthe said...

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love that little white mirror, Sissie! I wondered if you lucked out and found it white already, but I should have known you prettied it up!

trash talk said...

Mirror, mirror on the wall.
Who's the cleverest collector of you all?

Sharon Wengel said...

Sissie , you are the fairist of them all !
Thank you for putting me on your sidebar , you are a sweet heart !

Crystal Rose Cottage said...

Hi Sissie....I love all of your mirrors and I love the rimless ones that you have! I recently realized that I have a lot of mirrors in my own home! My SIL on her recent visit made that observation. I told her it was not because of vanity but because mirrors make rooms look bigger and reflect light...etc. I hope she bought that! lol Have a wonderful "reflectful" day!~Hugs, Patti

shari @ little blue deer said...

I love these! I adore mirrors too, you might say it's an obsession! And I just painted a little nightstand a rustic white, I love it! XX!

~~Carol~~ said...

I will join you in that mirror obsession! I've got quite a few of those old etched ones, but unfortunately I think I've run out of wall space for more. Your collection is just lovely!

Petite Michelle Louise said...

Gorgeous Mirrors! I love collecting mirrors, especially ones with beautiful etching! Thank you for your sweet comment! You can find me on Ebay. My seller name is cottage-white. You have to put the dash in between. Hope you have a lovely day!

Pam said...

Well there are certainly worse things to obsess over. I love all those frameless ones in your first photo. Very pretty.

Diane said...

Well, why not! Stools can be stacked and turned into shelves! And mirrors just send more light into our rooms! Yours are sooooo pretty! I never find any pretty ones like that anymore without big price tags.
Hugs, Diane


Hi Sissie, I love your mirror collection! As you know I have a thing for "pillows". I hope you have a wonderful week!

Ooh! I didn't know about your mirror obsession! lol I do love the grouping. Your decorating is so tasteful. I will stop over tonight to see Sharon's Want to be Cottage too. Take care!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I love venetian mirrors too! I can't afford the real deal but have found some pretty ones at Home goods. I even saw some candles sconces with the venetian mirror backs...really nice. Love your mirror display! Decorating with mirrors is something that you never tire of.
