    I think I am having an out of body experience!!! I swear that you have to be my twin and your husband is my husband’s twin!!!!!!!!!! I have this happen to us too, I find it, my husband whines, he ends up putting it his truck, it goes in the house, my dad says what are you going to do with it. I am in total amazement right now.

    I have no idea why I clicked on this story. No idea what so ever, but something drew me to it. I read, and kept reading, identifying with so much of what was being said. I texted my bff and said “I don’t know how this is, but she is my spirit animal”. Well done. Very. Well. Done.

    Cool mirror, but my goodness, the writing was awful. It’s such a distraction when a writer tries so hard to be funny, on every line, because it actually ends up being obnoxious.

      What?! I giggled the whole way through… and I’m physically manifesting Eeyore these days, so that’s saying a lot.

    I love this story, and your writing. Not just because this is an amazing and awesome mirror, but my partner and I go through pretty much the same dialogue periodically. What a score!

    ‘Scuse me; ehem: A love of gilded mirrors, a diy and bargain hunting home decor/design diva with a talent for expressing the above with wit and candor? The UNIVERSE brongs these things to you TOO? Please tell me you always had a feeling you were a twin. I personally have never had that feeling until right now but now I am convinced there has been a tangled web woven somewhere in the universe and it has finally brought us together.

    I laughed out loud reading this, mostly because it sounds like something I have done. My husband would still be looking at me with cross eyes, but I would have gotten my treasure. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Of course you had to have it. How could anyone in their right mind pass that up?
    2. Great story. Paul is a trooper.
    3. Only question left in my mind -How/why did the original owner come to have it? I’m so curious!
    Awesome post.

    I realize this was written in 2013 and not 2017 , so why is this just being posted on FB? Anyway, about the mirror…..
    Have you ever SEEN Antique Roadshow? Most likely the mirror is worth a fortune! You don’t buy a mirror like that at WalMart! Have you had it appraised yet? I mean ,it could be worth big,big money! Like $75,000 or more/less. Who knows ,maybe $175,000 !!
    I know you love it ,but just imagine where it came from? Don’t do a thing to it. Do not paint it! Have it checked out by a serious professional,please. It could have come from royalty, it could have come from religion ( think Vatican) , think the Ancient Romans!
    You can sell it (you’ll be rich) and have a copy made for your home and buy a new home!
    It would drive me crazy not knowing it’s history!

    You are killing me! Especially since your truck looks like the exact same model as mine (from the bed POV, anyway)! White Dodge Dakota, ca. 2003? Obviously, I can bring home something equally ludicrous, er, I mean spectacular!

    I love this post I just could not stop smiling while I was reading,and as I’m sitting in my bathroom trying to read it without my kid bothering me, (mom,mom,mom,MOM! In the backround,WHAT?,I snap)he finds me sitting on the tub with my cell up to my face,what doing?reading!watchya reading? A story about a lady buying a mirror!why? And I point to the 4×5 gold Framed mirror that takes up the whole wall above the sink,he just gives me this weird look and starts to slowly back out of the bathroom ,closing the door and a laugh ,he opens back up,what?I say ur face and this lady’s story is something mommy would do.
