An uncovered treasure for Monday


Stay with me ladies...I know what ya'll must be thinking . Another mirror?

It's not just any mirror. Walking past it I felt some sort of connection to it? After spending $4.00 buck's on it nice lady tells me the history. A family member worked at this plantation and back then recieved this mirror as payment for wages. Ok, nice lady then tell's me that plantation burned down years ago. Could it be.?!

Yes indeed! This plantation was not only a summer job where I was a Southern Belle tour guide....

It's where my sweetie and I proclaimed our love to the world. Now that's a find you want to share with your friends.

How could it get any better? I found this adorable lamp for... you guessed it $4.00. I called it my four dollar friday. I couldnt resist adding one of my tassels to dress it up right. It's for sale if your asking. Susie

  1. What a wonderful find!

    I've been reading your blog but never commented. :o/ I'm trying to "de-lurk" myself on all the blogs I read in the next few days. I really enjoy your blog!!

  2. Hi! Thanks for stopping by!

    That's a great story about the mirror that you found. It's a beautiful piece and it's even more special because of it's history.

    I definitely fall into the camp of "paint it if that will make you love it more". The story is still the same. It's beautiful as-is but if you would love it painted black then I think you should. You're just adding your own layer of history to it.

    But then, you've already seen that I paint everything that doesn't run away from me. ;-)

  3. I wished that I was a shopper of sorts like you. I am full price girl all the way, and with this economoy the way it is, I do NOT need to be, any in way shape nor form. Seeing all the great finds you get from yard sales, estate sales, and thrift shops, I really need to start going when I am looking for something that I don't need asap.

    Thanks for the encouragment!

  4. I paint everything....it's a problem! What a neat history to your mirror!! And I love the $4 Friday - I need to go out scouting for deals more often!! I did get 8 yards of decorator fabric on Saturday at a garage sale for $10...does that count? lol!

  6. I love that story! I would have so been one of those tour guides if we had a plantation that gave tours around our house when I was a teenager.

  9. Hi Susie,

    Your mirror story is so sweet!! You will think about those memories every time you look at it. I love the nest tassel - I went to your etsy shop but didn't see one like it. Any chance there will be one like it soon? Also, thank you for all of your encouraging comments you have left for me. They have all touched my heart and lifted my spirits. Please stop over to Sunflower Meadows and see something I have for you. Take care, JoAnne

  14. I love a piece of furniture that has a story behind it! How lucky that you found it...or maybe it found you because it knew you would treasure it.

  17. I hate it when I make typo's in my comments. I really did graduate high school, even college. What I meant to say is Where ya gonna hang it? That still sounds like I'm a hick from Utah. Oh well

  18. Nicole... tried to comment you but it's not working? I'm not sure where Im gonna hang it. I will have to move it around from wall to wall before it feels right. You know... just to drive my husband crazy...smile, Susie
