    I feel like I just read a “reunited” story about fraternal twins who didn’t know they had a twin and someone intervenes and connects them and the last picture is of them, finally together, at last.

    Hi. Have you ever thought you were missing something in life? It’s me. We are twins. We had to have gotten separated at birth. I loved this story!

    I don’t know who you are, but I love you already. I stumbled across this post, quite by accident. I’m a writer, describing an interior, and was googling “antique mirrors,” and this popped up!

    As a woman who has met strangers in alleys, abandoned warehouses, McDonald’s parking lots and farms to make myriad fascinating purchases, your mirror quest is one I admire and respect. I shall be eagerly reading more of your posts, and will eventually get back to that interior description – which prominently features a massive mirror.

    Kindest regards and best wishes for future treasure hunting.

    Thank you! I haven’t laughed that hard- to tears!- in a while. Laughing is a huge cleansing and I sure needed it. Thank you!

    “”””And I’m confused by what that question means.

    I’m not going to DO anything with it.

    It exists. Therefore it is mine.”””

    You are my spirit human-animal….everything that goes on in my brain when I see a piece I NEED, you have somehow spoken to the world! Hahahaha….the “others” don’t get it, do they? 😉

    I just discovered your blog through Thistlewood Farms blog….you are now going to the top of my list of must-reads at the top of each morning!

    What a rescue! Your Craig’s List is a gem. Do you have Nextdoor in your area? Somehow, I keep getting bounced from your blog. And then a month goes by, and I think..oh no! What’s happening with Victoria and the cats….
