One of my many vintage loves is old ghosted mirrors. They have such a haunting, romantic feel. Like reflections of the past, they reveal a muted picture. Like a faded memory that you can see in your mind but is not quite as clear as it used to be. Ghosted mirrors epitomize my decorating style. The characteristics that make some people see them as trash are the very things that make me see them as treasure. The more ghosting the better, and some de-silvering is good too. Here are a few from my collection.
My favorite! It has the best ghosting ~ like sand drifts.
This one is part of a rusty metal dresser and is no longer mine.
Love this old blue one.
My very next post will finally include pics of a couple of rusty wire pieces I have created. I can't wait to show you ~ see you then!
