Fool for France

    1. Thank you. I was worried that the insanely ornate mirror, one might call it a bordello mirror, would not work with the cement – lookalike tile. Actually, it’s fine. The silver frame brightens up all that gray quite nicely.


      1. It does, but it’s borderline bordello I think
        If you think that’s insanely ornate, you may question one or two of the mirrors in my house……………………………..
