This festive mirror was made from upcycled ornaments found while junking.  I am always in search of terrific vintage ornaments, but sometimes to get those you have to take the whole bag of the less desirables. I decided that these needed to have value too and I really am happy that all the stragglers have a home on this festive mirror

It's not everyday you meet so many people that have their heart go pitter patter when they see and old tattered (whatever... fill in the blank) by the side of the road and feel compelled to do a 180 to go get a second look. I look forward to getting plugged in more in the coming year. Posted: 5:04 pm on December 1st
