I love mirrors. If they are funky and old, that much better...the view through a faded or tarnished or aged glass makes me feel as if I'm looking back in time. I'm drawn to all shapes and sizes, worn and aged, painted and plaster.
a glimpse of an image in a mirror tells a story that may otherwise obscured from view,
I love how they reflect light and expand a vista....
We can be mirrors...reflecting the emotions, moods and attitudes of our world....
A mirror can display a vision of who we are or what we want to be.
When I saw this Sunburst Mirror in the last issue of This Old House, I knew we had to make it.
The good folks at This Old House have given us a great tutorial on their website.
It's made from carpenter wood shims. and a mirror (which, by the way, JR purchased at the new Hobby Lobby, and I didn't get to go with him).
It was a gift made for someone special.
I hope when they look into it, they see not only a refection of now, but the possibility of what can be.
