If you ever come across a old venetian mirror like this for a bargin (a real one - unlikely but it happens) then buy it immediately! These little babies are very valuable these days - not to mention lovely to look at and own :)
My favorite kind of home is one that is not to precious about the appearance. It looks lived in, it looks a little bit scruffy and it looks a little bit pulled together. To me that is home :) BTW - that pendant light is a bargin from Ikea.
