Had several ideas for posts today, but you bloggers have been so busy posting, and I've been so busy reading, I'm running out of Sunday! Went to quite a few yard sales on Friday & Saturday, and found some good stuff, but haven't had time to get pics taken. So, instead, I'll show you my project for today...I had a cute framed mirror I bought awhile ago, that needed some help. Decided to redo it for a prop at the shop where I work. We're going to be carrying more sorority jewelry, as well as sunglasses, and I realized these girls are going to want to see how great they look before buying! This morning I went searching in the shed for the mirror...AArrRggGHHh!!! Wouldn't you know, it was in the VERY back corner, behind at least a ton of stuff! I moved 1/2 a ton and then contorted my poor body over the remaining 1/2 ton, and finally extracted the mirror. Ta Dahhh! After 2 Advil, a rub of BenGay and a wee bit of Khalua in my coffee, I was finally able to clean, paint and even *bling* this little mirror back to life. I added the word PeRfECt ! in rub-on scrapbook letters found at Big Lots for $1. It's hard to see in the picture, but then it's hard to photograph a mirror anyway! I think it turned out pretty well...can hardly wait to see it hanging in the shop tomorrow...not that I'm rushing to get to Monday, mind you! I know the girls will like it...maybe I'll be able to *bling* up a couple more and sell 'em. Of course, that would mean more yard sale-ing...and thrift shopping...and curb picking...I think I can handle that!! :o} I'll be back in a couple days with some of my neat finds, and what I've already done with them. Until then, have a great week. *elaine*
