Not What It Seems

This is the mirror that I painted to "Dorothy Shoes Red".  This was brought to my attention as I tried to pack it up and move it to the new house.  I met resistance on all sides.  Finally, Martin admitted to me that he never liked my mirror - not even when it was gold!

Stunned.  He called it "Dorothy Shoes Red".  Unbelievable.  I ended up giving it to my friend Marlena.  She has girls - four of them.  They get it.

In my new dining room, there is an empty space above the buffet which needs a mirror.  The deal I struck with Martin was that I would give it away if I could choose a new mirror to replace the old one.
I found this at Home Goods for 1/3 the cost.  I'm not sure he has noticed it yet.  He will in the morning when I ask him to hang it.

Can you believe it? Twelve point five years of marriage and I had no idea he didn't like the mirror.  It has traveled everywhere with us.  I bought it at a garage sale waaaaaaay before I ever met Martin.  I'm still reeling.  He just walked through and asked, "What's that? A little ray of sunshine?"

Somebody help me.
