This one is very special, and VERY heavy!
I'm not the type to sit around and polish the silver and then hand wash each piece after I'm done using it. There is just too much to be done every day and those other things are much more rewarding. Delicate things that require attention just don't stand a chance in my house, so in order for them to be used and appreciated, they must be turned into something else. Something more fabulous!
BUT Isn't she pretty???
The mirror was a find from Target that happened to be on clearance!! So you're looking at a sunburst mirror that cost me a total of $15!!
Did I mention that each piece is wired onto the mirror in at least two places? That equals a lot of wire ($3) and a LOT of time (mostly free), but it is so worth it!! Now, instead of being stashed away in a drawer, never used, it is out, and adding some shiny bling to the room every day!
Now that is how you put pretty and meaningful things to work!
In other news.....
A girl I know is getting a really neat and navy window seat with some fun pillows!!
My client, a sophisticated 13 year old, has some great taste!
Her first pick for a pretty fabric....
Duralee 72066 in Pool.
It's such a great piece to get the inspiration going!
I'll keep you posted!! In the meantime, ask yourself what you have stashed away in the attic or basement and how it can come out to play!
Have a great week!!
