The water globe in the forefront of this picture is one of my favorite thrift store finds as I collect Eiffel Towers.
I drilled two holes in the top of the handles and looped ribbon through.  The hanging pieces off the handles are bits of old necklaces.
My favorite embellishing tool rub-ons and a jewel complete the look.
Dont you just love JUNK!!!!

Ribbon, rub-ons and jewels turn these vintage hand-held mirrors into beautiful wall hangings.

So much better than the builder grade square mirror that comes in all houses!

Thanks so much for sharing - what an awesome idea! This just goes to show that greatness can always be improved upon!

And, your mirrors are so sweet - such an elegant touch - I can picture a wall done in mirrors with these mixed in for a bit of bling!

And, the water globe was a great find! Tres chic!

Thanks for sharing.
