Mirror, mirror on the wall?

There is something about yardsale which makes me giddy. Aside from finding a real bargain, just being there and looking at things relaxes me in a very odd way. Frankly speaking I would prefer to make the rounds in yardsale than go shopping. Hmmm...very odd indeed!

In the last yardsale of the season I had my eye on this mirror. Yes, it was a mirror. Until it fell and broke into two pieces. Just now(sat. afternoon)It's really so upsetting because after weeks of waiting for my hubby to drill a hole in the wall, he finally did it!

To make the story short, I have tried to tie a string on the mirror and eventually hang it for my height but then...boom!

Just some words of advice:

  • never ever talk to someone on the phone while your husband is mounting your precious mirror on the wall.
  • be alert on what the guy's doing.
  • if it's just a "forehead higher" leave the mirror alone!
  • sulking will not bring back your 12sf so smile and remember that another yardsale is coming soon!

Oh no! It's such a beautiful frame, too! Can the mirror part be replaced?

Well, try using it as a picture frame. That way, it will still serve its purpose. :)

And yeah, you're right, "if it's just a forehead high, let it be ;)"

Enjoy the next yardsale.
