Everything Happens For a Reason

That new dining room table inspired a little decorating at 5th Place.
So, I kicked things off by hanging a beautiful Trumeau mirror on the wall.
A short while later I heard a crash...

No more mirror. :~(

That frame belonged on the patio wall anyway.
Do these quirky mishaps ever happen to you?

Oh, I know that crash sound too well.... it looks great even without the mirror!!

Blissful Endings said...

You crack me up! It looks great on the patio though.

Nita Stacy said...

That's making lemonade out of lemons for sure! At least the frame was ok.

Oh Laurie, sorry about the mirror, but it does look great on the patio! Hugs~~~ Daphne

Sueann said...

Oh yes!! Many a time! That frame is fantastic by the way!!
I had a ceramic mask fall off the fireplace mantel...broke into a million pieces. I fit the whole thing back together and it looked kinda of cool with the jagged lines running through it!! So...I still display it! It works! That is all that matters!

What a shame, but it does look wonderful as it is now!


Sherry Hicks said...

That's a good way to look at it! It is a beautiful piece without the glass as well.

Ohhhh Laurie that would have been awful!
It does look really pretty on the patio though :)

Oh, LaurieAnna, that is not nice...
The frame does look great on the patio. You will find the perfect piece for the kitchen wall. Have a good weekend. sandi

I think the frame was supposed to be on the patio all along. So, it finally took the situation into its own hands.

I think it looks great without the mirror too!!

I had a mirror fall but thankfully the mirror was intact...just lost a bit of the frame!

You have a beautiful blog, but why is there no way to turn off the music? Not everyone has the same taste in music.

Ohhhh, that dreaded sound!

The frame is lovely, looks terrific on the porch, and I'm sure it'll be seen in many different places!

Have a blessed weekend,

Can't imagine that frame looking bad anywhere!

Heaven's Walk said...

LUV it on your porch, Laurie Anna! Oh, and I wanted to thank you so much for sending my order so quickly. I just adore the string holder and stringball w/scissors! Looks just perfect with my other vintage balls of string!!! :)
