Bring Garden Light Further Inside

Every window is a garden view in my home. Not serendipity, once the epiphany was made the plodding began.  And the garden transformed.

Newest epiphany? Bring garden light further into my rooms.  Where should mirrors be hung?  Been sourcing junk/thrift mirrors, months of plodding have produced a nice selection, in my garage, awaiting placement.
One mirror, similar to the above, a joy at $10 from the local thrift.  None of the mirrors, all antiques, top $30.  This is the result of plodding.  Plodding pays.

I love mirrors, they feel like extra windows, especially in small rooms.

A major find if you found a mirror for $10 similar to the one in the photo. I would love to go plodding with you!

Hi Tara,
Loved her style and her philosophy of life. I am sure that is what helped get her to age 105. And, lucky you to have such a great source for thrifting and such. Can't wait to see the results of your search!
Best, Ellen
