Every once in a while, you get lucky.
At a recent estate sale, I managed to make it over on the third and last day of the sale. Normally that means not much is left. I cannot fathom why, but this mirror was proudly hanging on the wall when I walked in. My heartbeat quickened when I saw it, but I figured it was just waiting for its new owner to pick it up. I spotted another gorgeous mirror, also hanging there quietly.
After perusing the three floors of the home, creating a small pile of items to purchase, I decided to investigate those mirrors. I could not believe my ears when I was told they were still for sale.
Needless to say, I claimed them quickly and thanked my lucky stars. I don't know any of its history. I do know that I love the cherub faces and the mirror's blue color and shape.
Now I am working on the appropriate wall finish for my tiny foyer, where the mirror will reside. I'll show you the finished space as soon as I get it done! (Don't hold your breath...)
Might anyone be able to tell me more of its origin?
