The Thrill Of The Hunt

Sometimes, I think that the thrill of the hunt in finding something is just about equal to the thrill of actually acquiring that something!  I spent a whole day this week trying to find three wall mirrors that I recently saw on Sonny at 155 Dream Lane blog, which she happened to show a portion of in one of her posts.

Great knock off look of Ballard’s Garden District mirror.  A set of two is $229.00 from Ballard’s.

The ones I got {eventually} from Target were $25.89 each.  I did get the three I wanted, even if it required several phone calls to several Targets as well as trips to three of them.

I hung them above this chest in our dining area, which has basically become a sideboard here.

Close enough to a Ballard’s look that I love them!

Just in case you wanted to get them yourself, they are on clearance, are discontinued, and there are limited quantities out there.  Good luck!

I LOVE those. Of course they're on clearance...they must have be bought up in two seconds. They are awesome and so much like the Ballard. I love the thrill of the hunt. It makes it even better. Way better than just walking into one Target and finding all three right there. Lol
