Bring me sunshine......

Ha! so since my last post heralding the start of Autumn, the weather has turned again, and in the UK we have enjoyed warm sunny days with temperatures back in twenties!!

So perhaps I won't be applying for weather girl jobs any time soon!!

Of course the sun can't last forever (can it?), but my fascination with sunburst mirrors carries on......

Here's a couple of vintage mirrors we have on the wall in the hallway here at Snowdrop Towers......


And here's a couple more I'm thinking of acquiring from Graham and Green......

They look great solo......



Or grouped together......

I wonder what the collective noun for sunburst mirrors is?

A ' ray' perhaps......

And even if gold isn't your thing - there's a sunburst for everyone......

Hope you like them too......

Have a lovely week,

  3. Perhaps it's a 'galaxy' of sunbursts? Whatever it is, I think they look very fetching en masse. Good luck with your mirror hunting. Love Linda x

  10. Your sunburst mirrors are my favorite in the collection and second to those, the silvery, pewtery ones. I don't have any sunburst mirrors, but I think acquiring one before winter might be a good idea for keeping the winter blues at bay. Cheers!
