One of My Favorite Things


When we moved into our house a few years ago, my husband surprised me with this mirror we had seen at a local thrift store while searching for Halloween costumes. At the time, it was a weird fake bamboo color, but I knew it would look great painted red!

It only cost $10, and my husband knew that I had really liked it... It is one of my favorite things in the house, and it's been hanging in our entry ever since.

What are some of your favorite things in your home?

My favourite thing is the bookshelf we got when we got married. But to be honest we don't own much furniture as we live in a one-bed already furnished rented appartment! Love this mirror though, the red is fabulous!

What a great find! I am jealous of all you bargain hunters who find these great things for low prices!!

I have a silly elephant that I bought at West elm. Mass produced, little emotional value, but I love him still.

Love the mirror. Definately unique!
I love our bed. I bought it when I was still single. I hated my bed growing up (too short, too small). And I was determined to get something I really loved. I still love it even though we should get a king sized bed!

Cool mirror! I love my pink kitechen aid mixer and I love a small pink lamp I go in chicago a few years ago I actually had to carry back on the train. I still love it.

That is one great gift! I think my favorite thing in my house right now is my fiance. Cheesy I know, but he is really stepping it up and helping with the cleaning, laundry, etc. I love the help!
