My entire life is in this mirror, it was given to me by my mother a few years before dad passed away and was handed down from his mother and grandmother. I remember as a child how beautiful it always looked above the fireplace in my grandma's house. Now at over 100 years old it hangs in my home above the mantle. Every face of every person in my life has looked into this mirror at one time or another and I often think if it could talk "Oh the stories it could tell". One day it will be handed down to my own grandchildren and the faces of time will also cherish the memories and thoughts of how many loved ones have looked into it.
I started my christmas decorationg today and was looking for a different way to decorate the mantle this year. I wanted to add something new, something that would stand out. I was browsing through Pinterest and google images and I came across so many beautiful ideas "Oh that's really pretty" Oh look at that". I really didn't want to spend a lot of money on new things since we already have years and years of decorations, so I decided to do what I normally do and for the first time ever decorate the beautiful mirror that hangs above it. I found this wonderful idea on Pinterest so off to Michaels I went to purchase a Christmas wreath, lights, ribbon, bulbs and flowers. I got home grabbed a few zip ties from the garage, sat down and put this together in just minutes. I am absolutely thrilled with how it turned out and just how beautiful it looks on the mirror of my life.
