Never counted. I have a lot cuz I'm trying to make my place into as much of a plant-friendly place as possible, to reflect light and sun. Many are small ones.

I count approximately 34. I really like mirrors and I have more than average hanging on my walls, but that number is extra high because I have many make-up compacts which contain mirrors. I don't use a lot of make-up, but I always get freebies. Also, our dollhouse alone has 5 mirrors in it.

I'm not vain, I just like mirrors. I hang many of them up too high to be used as vanity mirrors anyway.

Here's what I figure:
Bedroom: 13 shock
Office: 1
Hall: 1
Living room/Dining room: 7
Bathroom: 5
Kid's Room: 2
Dollhouse: 5

6. But we keep them covered with black cloths. We don't like to be reminded that we have no reflections.

I'm at my grandma's at the moment (dad kicked me out again - he's gone a bit mental). There are dozens of mirrors. I will count them later.

Just the ones in the bathrooms... which are two to many. Hate it when there is a mirror and you can't see your reflection....being a vampire sucks..heh heh

How is it at granny's place? I always loved staying at my grandma's house.

Don't forget to count grin.

Speaking of grandmas and mirrors... Bailey White wrote a short story called "Madness through Mirrors". It's about an old woman who starts going mad and it starts with the mirrors. When dementia kicks in, she starts calling the police because there is a woman in her house yelling at her. It's a very sweet story and had special meaning to me because my grandma had Alzheimer's.

Anyway, I highly recommend Bailey White:

Full length in bedroom; medicine cabinet in bathroom; small ornamental one near the front door; and two hand-held ones in the bathroom. I'm not counting compact mirrors, but I have a few of those as well.

Grandma's is ok in a 'could be worse' kind of way. She's older than most people I know, and she's very set in her ways.She's losing her short term memory. It's a shame because though she's retired, she's still very active, and is seems healthier after a day of work. She has an amazing long term memory, though, remembering the exact dates of all these things you just wouldn't remember. She shared my granddad's army lifestyle, going all over the place, but I do worry she could start to fade. That might be me being paranoid, though.

It's great spending so much time with my granddad, though.

Ok, thinking off the top of my head because I'll just forget again at home... including wardrobe mirrors etc... fourteen. Feels like more, I can't go anywhere without seeing myself! I hadn't heard of Bailey White before. Some of her books are quite cheap on ebay, and I get paid tomorrow grin

Been buying old National Geographics recently, which is great fun - I bought about 2x3.5 metres of plain white tshirt fabric, and spent some time last night printing on it with old NG photos. I'm going to use it as a throw at uni, should be good. There's an archive you can buy from 1888 to 2008, it's only 58 ($90) - be still my beating heart. Me and my girlfriend are going to go halves on it... ha, that all just came from nowhere. Anyway, the printing is fun, but I can't do it unless my grandparents are out, because my grandma would think I'm going to suck all the colour from everything in the house and print it all over the place. Eesh.

Thanks for asking smile I've not been paying SC enough attention, but I'm trying, which is why I started the 'Ask a Question Game' surveys.

It was very frustrating for my grandma when she started losing words, forgetting names, losing track of what she was talking about. She eventually switched to reading short stories, because she couldn't come back to a book later and remember what she was reading. Soon after that, no reading at all. This is sad and scary. New subject.

Yay. I hope you like her.

Ooooh. Old National Geographics sounds really fun. I bet those really old ones will be a fascinating read. Old writing, old opinions, old ideas, old ads. I could get myself into trouble with old magazines. They are so much like books to me that getting rid of even the new ones can be hard. I finally canceled my subscriptions to any magazines so I'd quit building a stack that would make a hoarder proud. That's a great idea with the T-shirts. I have a friend who is totally obsessed with making tie-dye shirts right now. Her underwear is tie dyed.

As part of the knocking-on-doors part of my job, I came across one of the bags we use for recycling paper and cardboard full of old National Geographics. Goldmine! I forgot how good '90s fashion could be!

Yeah, the shop I got the fabric from sells factory rejects and surplus and whatnot, so it's a bolt that would have been made into tshirts. Very light, but very soft.

I'm sorry to hear about your grandma. I remember briefly seeing that in my great-grandma, who has since passed on. It was weird going to her house as a kid because I didn't couldn't always understand what she was saying. But I don't really remember too well. When I saw her for the last time, she wasn't her any more. Eesh. Ugly subject.

Garbage-picker! winking raspberry Once I found a box in someone's trash FULL of ooold Nancy Drew novels - I took them home and devoured them.

laughing out loud Somehow I missed like an entire sentence of what you said before about it being just fabric and turning it into a throw. image That would be even cooler than t-shirts, though all I wear is T-shirts... so NG t-shirts appeal to me.

Yes, it was like that for us too.

I'm staying with my parents. There's a bathroom mirror (well, half of one - my younger brother punched the bathroom cabinet and broke the mirror on one of the sliding doors, so now there's just one side), one in my parents' room, one in my room and one in the hall. So four total (if we're not talking about handheld mirrors).

Seven, not counting any really small ones that my wife might have attached to a compact or something.

Three in the bathroom (two swing on hinges, on either side of the main one).
One just outside the bathroom (a lovely vintage beveled one).
One at the foot of the stairs (the only full length).
Four on my wife's vanity.
One in the bedroom on top of my wife's bureau.

That's ten. I missed three the first time.

One in the bathroom, one in my en-suite loo, one in my bedroom, one in the top of my sponge bag and one handheld one that I've misplaced. Five total. The bathroom/loo ones came with the house. The bedroom one I bought to go on top of a chest of drawers. The handheld one I've had for twelve years. The sponge bag, I must have had for eighteen to twenty years.
