Things Remembered never lets me down
My mom shared this poem with me when I was twelve, so for her 48th birthday I quoted the first line on the mirror she loved the mirror and the memory. There was a slight hiccup on the engraving where they inscribed the word you twice, but they corrected it immediately. Very Happy with the results.
The Guy in the Glass
by Dale Wimbrow, (c) 1934
When you get what you want in your struggle for pelf,
And the world makes you King for a day,
Then go to the mirror and look at yourself,
And see what that guy has to say.
For it isn't your Father, or Mother, or Wife,
Who judgement upon you must pass.
The feller whose verdict counts most in your life
Is the guy staring back from the glass.
He's the feller to please, never mind all the rest,
For he's with you clear up to the end,
And you've passed your most dangerous, difficult test
If the guy in the glass is your friend.
You may be like Jack Horner and "chisel" a plum,
And think you're a wonderful guy,
But the man in the glass says you're only a bum
If you can't look him straight in the eye.
You can fool the whole world down the pathway of years,
And get pats on the back as you pass,
But your final reward will be heartaches and tears
If you've cheated the guy in the glass.

I Love It...!!
I bought this for myself and I love it. It would make a nice gift for anyone, but I fell in love with it when I saw it. This mirror was made with great care and the personal inscription made it even more special for me.

Nice Size, Pretty
I purchased this campact mirror for a friend. The mirror is a great size. The engraving is perfect. The recipient was pleased.

I love the vintage look and the beaded design. I had it engraved with my bridemaids name, they immediately fell in love.

beautiful birthday gift
I purchased this compact and had it engraved with my best friend's monogram for her birthday. I loved that it came with it's own drawstring velvet pouch so when she carries it in her purse on special occassions, it will not become scratched.
She absolutely loved it and has thanked me for it on three separate occassions!
I've had a Things Remembered compact I received from a friend over 15 years ago and I love it, so I knew my friend would love this one.
