Dirty little secret #1 part 2

Last June I started to makeover my fireplace and mantle. Remember my Dirty little Secret #1?
Well, let's just say it took a long time to find the perfect mirror to crown the fireplace. Once I saw her on Craigs List, I knew she was fit for the area over the mantle. I finally got rid of that UGLY dirty little secret-the old light fixture! Today Mr. C and I hung her over the mantle and boy, she looks purrty!
First, we capped the wires safely and put this over the spot to close it up, tho not permanently.

Here she is...isn't she lovely?

Now I just need some spring mantle inspiration! Gonna shop my house to try and come up with something pretty! Have you changed out your mantle for spring yet?

Awesome find! I found a great mirror on Craigslist a while back as well. Sometimes it is hit or miss isn't it?
