I'm so sorry I didn't read this sooner...I was just recalling my fascination with my grandma's "things"--I even remembered the smells of her house--smile--a strange combination of roux, mothballs, ointment, and powder....you brought that back to me.

I thank you much.

Serenity Blaze ~

I would like to thank you as well for stirring up more memories for me of my grandmother's house...moth balls! I am now also recalling the scents her lotions, potions, soaps, and perfumes---Chantilly, White Shoulders...The memories are flooding back now!

Warm nostalgic hugs,

"The mirror stood in the corner,
Atop a dresser of ebony,
Neglected, long forgotten,
By others, but not by me."

I loved this, for many many reasons

My sister now has the magic mirror--and I visit them both quite often!--and yes, the mirror does reflect my reality--and as Martha Stewart says: "...and that's a good thing!"

~ May your life be filled with love, light, peace & laughter...

It is a known fact that every grandmother is issued a mirror like that, and instructed to place it in a private place that only kids can find.......

Off to vote at this time........!!!

With a wonderful reply like that, I now know why you are the leader of the pack! (Mind you I think that is a pack of loveable mice-- not rats! tehe)

~ May you find white magic in any mirror that reflects your kind face...

Linda; This is delightful and so beautifully written! You took mr back to my halcyon days of my Nanny's house where everything smelled musty and I felt like a princess too! Thanks for that!  Ellie
