My New Pink Mirror that Almost Wasn't

Have you ever seen something at a shop, and you fell in love with it, and then NOT bought it?
I did.  BUT, I turned around, drove thirty miles BACK to the store, and bought it!!
A pink mirror.  With etching.  And chippy pink paint.
It was the PERFECT Pink, and the Perfect size.
Wanna see??

Now when I saw it hanging there at her shop, it made my heart happy seeing it....
And when I left the store (finally), I had talked myself out of it.
But...it kept calling my name.  As mile after mile ticked its way under my car, it called louder and louder!!
So I turned around, called her, and she put it at the front for me!
Joy of joys...even my husband likes it!!
I took some pictures of her space at the flea market, so if you're in Mineola, Texas, be sure and stop by and see her pretties!
and by the way, the pink shutters are NOT for sale...but I'm working on her!!
Thanks Kim for my lovely mirror!!

Isn't it pretty hanging there..waiting for me to come by?

I'm in love with this chippy door...it is soooooo cool!  The quilt hanging behind it gives me some great ideas!
I love looking at all the beautiful ways people decorate their shops.  So many awesome ideas are utilized, and I find so many beautiful vignettes that catch my eye.
Hope you enjoyed the pink I shared today.
I will be sharing it in some of the parties listed below!
Be sure and head over to them to see some lovely posts.  I'm always so inspired by you all!

Your new pink mirror is a real beauty - I understand why you had o turn back around to get her.

I LOVE, LOVE it! You did the right thing. If something is calling your name, it is meant to be!! I could kick my behind for some of the items I have left at a store! Have a great week end!

I love your pink mirror and it looks so pretty the way you have displayed it on your mantle. I have learned that if you truly love something you have to get it when you see it or it may not be there when you go back for it.

Love the mirror...and I too have done that but I went back the next day and by sheer luck my pie crust mirror was still there...must have had my name on it.

Some things just call to us so strongly, we cannot refuse.
