Mother In Laws Loft!

How wonderful is it when you find what your looking for right under your nose!
Or more to the point in your Mother in laws loft!!!
I had been looking for pieces for my blue room for some time now, particularly a mirror & a bed side lamp. I really like the old antiqued gold gilt framed mirrors, and I want a real statement lamp, as I'm only going to have one in the room.
We were on our weekend visit to the parents and I was browsing through You magazine with my coffee as you do!, and happened upon the interiors section in which there was a mirror with a gold gilt frame. I showed Penny who exclaimed with delight that she had one just like that in the loft!! Well that was it we had to go and get it down, and it was just that. Perfect!

She then told me about a lamp which was her mothers that was also buried in the Loft, ceramic turquoise with cherubs on it! Sounded interesting, I don't normally go for cherubs but worth a look. She dug it out for our next visit, It is beautiful just the sort of thing I've been looking for.

She has had it re wired and now all I need is a shade.
These items both belonged to Gav's Grandma's, one from each side of the family. Which is lovely as they have now been passed down through the generations.
They are both now stored ready for the blue rooms final touches.
Thank you Penny for your family heirlooms we will treasure them xx
