A too large mirror is easier to forgive than a too large painting. The mirror will reflect away from the surrounding wall. How wide is the sofa?

How did I miss that one during my recent bout of insomnia? It actually looks really cool... same idea as a mandoline, but the feeder tube and push-lever keep your fingers away from the blade. I can't get the hang of using the safety holder that came with my Oxo mandoline (which I love love love BTW), and I'm afraid one of these days I'll get just the tiniest bit distracted while flying through slicing a cucumber and zip the tip off a finger. But I've had the mandoline several years now, and so far, so good!

If we're talking seen-on-TV gizmos, I really love the Magic Bullet I got earlier this year. It's the perfect size for making single-serving smoothies (eg, for Joyanna). Got mine at Walmart.

Well,I had a smoothie maker that just never got used (gift from my brother -- I just gave it back to them bec. theirs broke from overuse!). I asked about the Magic Bullet over on the Divas cubit, and TwinLakeChefs gave it 2 thumbs way up, so I got it. It came with 4 extra blending tops that are actually plastic serving cups (you can screw on rims for drinking or lids for storage), so that helps when I'm prepping a bunch of different ingredients, say for quesidillos or omelets.

I have this one. It works, but you need to change the blades for different thickness. Probably not as convenient as the one with the dial and the easy to use handle.

Stormy, the mirror will go over the mantle and is in a room where the ceiling is 2 floors high. Opposite the mirror are 2 loveseats with wall treatment above them. The couch is 7 feet and off to the side. The windows go from floor to ceiling but they are to one side of the mirror so there will be no direct sun reflecting.....(actually, I'll need to really observe this all day). We don't have the sheer blinds on the top windows and I guess this could be a problem, especially since the painting was bleached out!!!

Teri, Will the mirror be wider then the mantel? If not, I think that it would work there. Is there a chandelier in the room that would reflect in the mirror?

Jill, That might be the item (bullet) that Allison says she uses all of the time instead of a blender. Do you still use your blender at all now that you have the bullet?

The mirror is not wider than the mantel, just very tall. No chandelier, but a ceiling fan way up where no one notices it unless one is upstairs on the balcony.

I think that it would be OK then. I love mirrors in rooms. They really open a room up. Will there still be room in front of the mirror to put things on the mantel?

I rarely used my blender anyway, and once I got the Magic Bullet I stuck the blender in the basement. Might get it out for parties, I suppose, as I haven't tried to see if the MB can keep up with a crowd, but I suspect it will go to the thrift shop.

Terri, that mirror sounds like just the thing!

If that mirror is still there tomorrow, it's MINE. If not, I'll continue looking.

That is really a beautiful mirror, Teri and would go so well with your lovely decor. I hope that it's still there. Smiling

Sniff, sniff......it's gone. There was another one that is just as big, but the color makes it look a lot less heavy, and the color blends in with the marble tile around the fireplace. I wasn't really sure of it, but we took it anyway. We can continue to look for another for 30 days before the return period runs out. I have a feeling that we are both done with shopping for this mirror and will just get used to this one that we will be putting up as soon as we can get the correct heavy duty hooks for it. Right not it is just leaning against the fireplace waiting for us.Thumb of 2011-10-20/Roses_R_Red/c165a8 Thumb of 2011-10-20/Roses_R_Red/0b1652 The finish is antiqued pewter with a little bronze brushing thru it. There are several sections of beveled glass that have the same colored rosettes at the pane junctions.

I cleared off the mantel and put the contents on one of the coffee tables. There's really getting to be too much stuff in this room.

Teri, That is an absolutely lovely and elegant mirror and will look great in your room. Thumbs up I actually like that one better as cobwebs won't get built around the top of it and the brighter finish in the frame will also help open the room up some. Great find!! I tip my hat to you.

It will be a good bit easier to clean too!! Big Grin

I like that one, too! With the high ceiling in that room, you might be able to put it a couple feet above the fireplace (rather than just a little higher than the mantle)... ? Is it possible to lift it onto the mantle and lean it against the wall above the fireplace so you can "live with" it for a few days and see if it grows on you or not?
