Love This Chippendale Mirror



I have been busy tucking hearts around the house today, and each one is to show my love for my wonderful family and friends. In my heart, I know which heart is for that special person in my life. 


You may recall this post from the Mackenzie-Childs Barn Sale when I met my dear blogging friend Patti from Pandora's Box. She worked at the Barn Sale, and I was so happy we got to meet.

Patti is a MacKenzie-Childs collector and an artist who has mastered painting checks. I painted a vintage wheelbarrow in black and white checks this past summer, and I can tell you that it requires skill (and patience). Patti was my mentor of course ;o) 

Recently, I was visiting Patti's blog and she shared a Chippendale Mirror that she found at an auction, and posted the updated version here. I am giddy as a kid to be greeted by this fun mirror when I walk through the front door. 


This photo was taken before I did my Valentine's makeover on the shelf. I will have so much fun decorating my entry way now that I have this beautiful mirror to brighten up the area.

Thank you for stopping by! I am joining The Tablescaper for Seasonal Sunday and the Cozy Little House for Tweak It Tuesdays. If you are interested in the giveaway I am having, there is still time to let me know. Here is the post.

  17. That mirror is so pretty in your foyer! It looks perfect, and I know you are happy that Patti sold it to you. She did an amazing job on it. This is going to sound weird, but I think I met you at the barn sale. I just thought of it. Did you meet Patti at Dori's? (Please don't think I'm weird....)

  19. Oops! I saw the word "Chippendale" and my mind immediately went somewhere else with a completely different kind of Chippendale!!! ;-) OK...now I'm back on track! Congratulations on nabbing this great mirror! It works so well with your Mackenzie-Childs decor! Neat idea to tuck little love hearts all around for different family members, too. That's really sweet! Have a great week, Debbie!
