mirrors, mercury, millinery and michael's

i used this round vintage mirror with the thrift shop birds as a simple centerpiece for our easter lunch, along with the lovely napkins that christine sent in my swap basket


the lone old mercury ornament that i purchased in texas - love it

and the softest, prettiest old millinery from our brief visit to the marburger farm antique show

and one more thing - i simply love these soft, velvety looking roses from michael's! i think they really have a vintage look...and the best part?! they are on clearance for $1.47 a box! (reg price was around 6.50-7.00) i bought a bunch of these in minneapolis a few weeks ago and now found more today. they're a classic, in my opinion:)
(this photo shows 3 bunches - and there are 6 per box)
