"Reflections In Time"

By Trebeca04
"Reflections In Time" A new memory mirror finally emerges from the depths of my studio. . . .  This small vintage mirror, probably from the 30s was a bit beat-up when I found it at the flea market, but I loved the thickness of the mirror glass, I loved the overall sturdiness of the frame itself and the thickness of the wood.  The piece charmed me, in that it could either hang on a wall or sit on a table or dresser.
I first covered the frame in my favorite spring green tissue papers and then did an overlay of sewing pattern tissues. Then I embellished with 'bits' and 'bling' in brass and gold tones. Hard to photograph all the details, but there are many sweet, interesting and wonder-filled objects collected as souvenirs of events or experiences familiar to us all.  There are vintage buttons, political pins, bottle caps, religious metals, a tiny toy metal airplane, a watch face and a #3 house number. Don't miss the little red rhinestones sitting on the shelf next to the #10 gym locker number.
You'll see a wand with a cut crystal topper piercing through the upper left of the frame. On the very top, I attached a part of vintage brass cork screw with a brass screw that allows it to swivel back and forth and doubles as a nice handle. The dimensions are 7.5"x10" with a 4" shelf.  The piece is ready to hang on a special wall, or happily sit on a table or dresser top.
