Cut Glass Mirrors

      I'm going to call this type of mirror a cut glass mirror for lack of a better term (and there may be one). They've been loosely on my radar for a while, but I've been having such a moment with gold framed mirrors that I had not yet given them proper consideration, until this past Saturday.
       On Saturday my little town had it's annual town wide tagsale, and my buddy Leslie and I hit up about 35 sales in two hours. Leslie scored the most breathtaking cut glass mirror for her downstairs bathroom, which she's currently renovating. She sent me a picture of it hanging in its new spot. Prepare to be jealous!
I was pretty jealous, and so inspired by her mirror acquisition that when I saw a round cut glass mirror the next day at the flea market (for $10!!!) I snapped it up without hesitation. Now I've been admiring all of them and my goodness are they lovely. Here are some pretty examples, include the ones Leslie and I picked up.
Happy Thursday!
Incredibly elegant and refined- and I love the idea of a silvered bath tub!

This mirror looks quite a bit like the one I purchased on Sunday. Look how pretty it is in this gray bathroom.

A spectacular  antique Venetian cut glass mirror. It's so dramatic that the rest of the furnishings can be fairly simple.

This sweet antique mirror is etched and cut. I think it would look stunning at the end of a hallway.

The grand scale of this mirror is impressive. It adds some feminine sparkle to a vintage room.

Full on glamour with a mirror vanity and a cut glass mirror in this bathroom

A pair of round cut glass mirrors look divine in this elegant dining room.

I'm going to hang this mirror in my dining room when I re-do my decor in August.
