Well, the more I sat and looked at the dining room wall, the more naked it kind of looked to me. After I added the bamboo mirror to the living room wall quilt, I knew I wanted to add one to the dining room wall quilt as well.
So, against my better judgment the day before Christmas Eve when traffic is horrendous, I headed to Hobby Lobby once again.
I had looked at their website at mirrors and their prices and had it narrowed down. In fact I looked at many store websites to see where I could get the best bargain.
This is what I came home with.
It’s hard to get photos in this narrow room.
I hung the mirror and then lowered it about half a dozen times before I felt it was right.
Unlike the other mirror, I suppose this one is made of steel. It is heavier and I was careful to add a lot of jute to hang it by.
Both of the mirrors remind me of flowers, which is a plus in my book. Where the other is a more natural rattan color, this one is sort of a distressed white.
This one is a bit smaller and was about half the price of the other one.
It was important to me to get a mirror that was mostly open so that I could see the quilt underneath.
I know most of you are probably in the middle of holiday stuff.
Maybe there’s one person in families that doesn’t like to partake in the festivities. I am that person in my family.
When my children were young I was right in the big middle of it. Making homemade ornaments with them. Baking up lots of cookies and candies.
But as I’ve gotten older, I’ve turned back more to the way I was raised. We did not celebrate holidays. I thought it was tragic then. But now I understand.
Some people just don’t like all the hullabaloo. The noise and chaos and crowds of people. My granny was one of those people. She preferred to carry on just like a holiday was any ordinary day. And now I’ve become just like her.
