Grannys Junk Became My Treasure!

When we were down in California for the holidays, Matt's Granny asked me if I wanted this old mirror or she was just going to give it to Goodwill! I snatched it up so fast later finding out it has been in the family for almost 150 years +. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it yet. Maybe use it in the powder room or make it a chalk board? Any suggestions besides painting it(Its an antique, I can't bring myself to paint it and I like the vintage gold)

I can hardly stand it! My parents got me the whole set of Le Creuset for Christmas! Look how beautiful. I can't wait to cook my first meal. It will be stuffed flank steak with roasted bell peppers,bacon,carmelized onions and cheese! Thank you Mom and Dad for a Christmas present that I will 1. Use on a daily basis 2. Make my husband very happy(I'll be cooking more) 3. A gift I will have for the rest of my life! Love you Mom and Dad!
