I would love it if you would stop by my FACEBOOK art page and LIKE it.

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).

 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.

The finished size is 16"x16".  And I think it turned out spectacular.  

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.
How cool is that?
