Personally I would have to say the frames since I collect them and leave them empty. Love that picture.

Will @ Bright.Bazaar said...

Those frames are something special - the level of detail on them is intricate!

Julie Holloway said...

The frames, darhling!

cityfarmer said...

Gretchen O. said...

Those are beautiful...I really like mirrors with a little patina.

While the frames themselves are extraordinary, the mirror adds that final panache -- that final je ne sais quoi... that final touch. Like the perfect dress which needs the perfect accessory!

Nothing is more beautiful than an antique French mirror. That said, I am also partial to anything French with crystals :-)

Thinking the frames...but I like the question!

Tessa said...

those frames, those frames, how much prettier can you get!?!

Janell @ Isabella and Max said...

If the glass had more wear, it would be a toss up, but love the frames, especially the back one with more patina. Janell

Love this photo! <3

La Dolfina said...

I can't possibly choose!

Tricia Rose said...

I suppose it depends who is looking into them Donna!

Splendid Sass said...

Beautiful frames! It is difficult to find such beautiful frames within budget anymore!

I love them both but I'd have to say the FRAMES are what GRAB me! LOVE them! Like heart skip a beat love! ;-) By the way, I'm having a Scentsy give away on my blog, if you have a moment, I'd love for you to pop by!

FrenchBlue said...

I think it depends on the mirror and frame... but if they are both old and crusty.... I think I would say the mirror...only because...think about all the faces who have looked into them through all the years?
Great post!

Lovely---both of them. I love old mirrors.

Thank you for your sweet comment. I have been reading your blog for a while now and so my heart did a little flutter when I saw you left me a comment. Love your style.

That back mirror is stunning!

Ann said...

What's a mirror without a frame? or a frame without a mirror? They go together...

doug @ tracery interiors said...

toss up!

lisaroyhandbags said...

The frames are absolutely stunning! :)

La Dolfina said...

Thank you Donna for you sweet sentiments on my boy's birthday!
Love you :)

Mona Thompson said...

I'm thinking the frames. I love, love mirrors. All kinds of mirrors and the grungier the better. Mona

They are exquisite mirrors AND frames. Like peanut butter and chocolate, have one, must have the other. xox Alexandra

FROM THE RIGHT BANK said...

The frames, the frames. I'm dying for these!

Jen said...

Both, girl, both!!

24 Corners said...

All the frames lined up like that! Have to start a large, ornate, guilded frame collection now so I can do this (dreaming)!

Solid Frog said...

Can't choose, like both :)
Nice picture.

for the love of a house said...

for me they are equally as fabuous and important, as I adore them both. We've been told that we don't own a mirror you can actually see yourself in!! And I really should take a snapshot of my stack of antique frames that are leaning against the door of a guest room... a collection out of control!!

Beautiful!

Hamptontoes said...

Those frames are stunning!

Linda Q said...

Hmm, hard to choose, I love them both but the ornateness of the frames is what grabs me first. I use them with or without something in them!
Great blog, I think I have to follow now.
