Reflections "Reflections" Several months ago, I came across this wonderful vintage mirror, The mirror appeared to be handmade by someone many years ago, lovingly sculpted out of a piece of fur, or possibly pine.  A heart shape design cut-out was fitted with a 1/4" thick mirror.  The fine sanded wood frame was painted silver.  Truthfully, the piece was beautiful as I found it.
But, alas, I had to bling it up.  A thin layer of tissue was first, (you can see it in this closeup photo).
Reflections  Then I began adding the hardware. Mostly silvery bits, and baubles and bling.  I have included several photos which will hopefully provide you an opportunity to take a closer look at the many pieces included on this memory mirror.

I finished the piece a week before Valentine's Day, and although I felt I was a bit late for the holiday of hearts, the piece was sold a few days after that. *** The sweet couple, Tom and Carol, who took "Reflecitons" home with them, sent me a lovely email telling me how much they are enjoying the piece. The also included a photo of the piece in their home. Reflections How cool is that?
