Mirror collections....

I've started collecting vintage mirrors and have them lined up along the wall until I decide where to hang them. I like the old crochet clothes hangers and found a nice batch at a sale. The cake/pie carries were just sort of an accident...I bought one and liked it so well so I bought another. I think I'll keep an eye open for a third....maybe more if I find something that catches my eye.

This just happened to be sitting like this on the floor until I find a place for everything...I thought it looked good just as it is for a photo!

I'm linking with Beyond the Garden Gate Visit her blog and join in on the fun!

Thanks Tete!

Welcome to the party! Love, love, love your collections!
The mirrors are wonderful! I love them.
Don't you just wonder about the lady who took the time to cover her hangers?
I often look at pieces and picture busy hands working to make her little world more special.
The cake carriers are a great way to hide things! And they look so cool.
I know you will find a third and maybe even a fourth before long!
Thanks for taking part and bringing some more fun to the blog party!
Hope to see you next time, too!
Hugs- Tete

You've got several great collections there-somewhere I saw a wall with these kind of mirrors. I've got a couple of those pie/cake carriers-they're neat, but I never kind figure out what to do with them! You've got some goodies!
