Looking at the mirror in my bedroom last night, I remembered a girl once telling me that she and her family cover their mirrors at night because, according to folklore, the wandering soul of a dreamer can become trapped in them…
That aside, having a mirror in the bedroom is handy, how else are we to coordinate outfits? I know some people can do that with their eyes closed, but I’m that way inclined.
Do you have a mirror in your bedroom? Do you use it?
I have sliding wardrobe with mirrored doors, like in the photo above. I use it a lot and like seeing a full length view of an outfit. I have a quite a small bedroom and think mirrors give the illusion that my room is bigger!
Neither do I. It's frightening enough for me to look in the bathroom mirror first thing in the morning. Don't want to see me haul myself out of bed - it must be a frightening experience for my husband to witness that apparition.
Yes, always have had. Great for doing 'close up' face cosmetics. And to check ALL is in order b4 walking out the door!
Hubby uses it to make sure his Oxford knot in tie is correct! And combing his hair!
I believe it's an old Chinese superstition with the premise that a mirror opposaite your bed as the spirit of your sleeping soul might enter the mirror and become trapped in a world between waking and sleep. So basically the mirror can steal your soul.
