Decisions, decisions

For the past year and a half that we've lived in this house, I've been thinking about what should go above the living room fireplace. Art of some sort or a mirror, art or a mirror...back and forth. After much debate (with myself because, thank the goodness, Mark leaves these matters to me or we'd have car parts everywhere and posters on the walls), I've decided it must be a gold framed mirror. Preferably a shape more unique than circular or rectangular.

Here's the mantle today:

And these are some of my inspiration photos:

I've been looking at yard and estate sales and thrift stores, but no luck yet. I should start checking Craigslist and Ebay. And we're going to the Rose Bowl Flea Market next month, so I have high hopes for that (although things can be wildly overpriced there). I'll find one if it kills me!


  1. Your house is already so beautiful! The golden mirror would look great over the fireplace making your living room look even more elegant. If your car isn't full of people wanting to go with you guys to the flea market, perhaps I could tag along? (inviting myself here) ;)

  2. Good luck! You have such a lovely house.
