Which Item Cost $9??

I'm in love with a new painting...and a new mirror. 
Can you guess which one only cost me $9.00?
Perhaps it's the painting I fell in love with at an antique store...
...a gift originally given in 1986 from a mother to her daughter.
Or is it the golden mirror, with all its intricate details?
Either way, I paired them on this wall to accent the side cabinet, which features a rolling hillside.
I love this old little cabinet. 
Chipped paint and all. 
The rest of the table...
As for which item set me back a mere $9.00?
You never know WHAT you'll find in Family Dollar!!

Sometimes
a beautiful 
$9.00
mirror!
Or, a $20 one! 
{Remember my FIRST Family Dollar mirror in the kitchen? See my previous post for that tour.}
Until next time, happy treasure hunting, friends.

Love them BOTH...but I really LOVE that cabinet! I started collecting antique cabinets about 15 years ago and I put them everywhere in my house. I agree Meredith, there's nothing like a good bargain! Have a blessed week my friend! BTW...I figured out the problem with my comments( I inboxed you)
