Rustic Mirrors of Chic Provence

Hoping you are having a wonderful Friday as we here in America begin preparations for the most American of all holidays next week:  Thanksgiving!! We love this holiday because it's our longest stretch of time without work when we can spend hours and hours together as a family making a complete wreck of the kitchen while we prepare the feast of all feasts! 

As soon as I have my table design ready and the menu, I will certainly post pictures here for your enjoyment! In the meantime, I LOVE this collection of rustic mirrors I found at auction in Paris next month... what do you think? They are not elegant, but they each possess a quality that I find endearing... old, found and venerable...I especially like the unusual square sun, and then last one, the more contemporary round in oxidyzed glass..

Have a great weekend!
