Tiffany Blue Mirror & a Christmas Tree

You may remember this. It is my wicked stepmother's mirror, mirror on the wall.
It is now reincarnated and named "Tiffany Blue." I got a comment a while back from Julie saying I needed to post some pics of my "eek to chic" mirror project. So, voila! The above pic is what my front room looks like right now. I wanted a white, gold and silver tree this year, promising not to buy anything to make it happen. And true to the challenge, all white, silver and gold tree all from stuff I already had.
Entry way at Thanksgiving.
Just some detail of the frame. It's fun for now. But I'll probably get bored. Yet again! And it will be brought back to life in some new color that matches my mood.

cake plates

I've wanted to do this project since this summer when my MIL and I saw it at a fancy boutique in Utah. This is my not-so-fancy version with dollar-store plates and glasses and some glass glue. That's it.
The plates we saw at the boutique were on silver bases with fancy china on top. So, it has tons of possibilities.
If you want to see some that are just fantastic, go see what my friend Holly did with this project! Oh, if I could just think like that! Good stuff, Maynard!
