Oh so fabulously french...



Hope that you all had a fabulous weekend, ours was very productive as we worked on our latest project and of course it involved more painting for yours truly!

As promised, here are some photos of the fabulous antique french mirror that I bought recently.......





Would you believe that it is 1.65m high and 84 cms wide?



I just love the intricacy of the frame, it is so detailed........................






and I especially love this part of the frame!


I am looking forward to seeing it hanging in our wee shop, come September. Note Mr FF is hoping that I do not buy too many more pieces like this as I made him drive very slowly on the way back as I was scared that it would get broken.

Bon semaine
