A Sweet Gift ..

Hello my dear friends,

today I would like to share a gift I received from my daughter Ashleigh from one of our outings last week.

It is a small standing mirror. When we saw it in the store first, I was telling her how I think that it would look amazing silver gilded and aged and since she knows how much I love to make things 'mine' she bought it for me as a sweet gift with the thought of me working with on it one day.

 I am going to think about what I could do with it for a while but right now I am going to enjoy it as it is!



I love these little birds looking into the mirror at themselves ~ so sweet!
 I can't wait for me to be able to start this project .. hopefully that will be soon!
Of course I couldn't resist heading to Michaels already with my 50% off coupon to purchase what I needed.

I bought the smallest packet of silver gilding just in case I don't become a fan of it.
Now all I need is the right idea and time to start.

It would be so nice if you were to come back soon and visit me again here at Todolwen.
 I have new treasures to share with you from this last weekend when church sale season started.

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day,

Karen B.

  2. That is a very pretty frame. Can't wait to see what you do with it and I'm looking forward to seeing your other treasures!

  3. If that isn't the sweetest thing I've ever seen....you've got my envy! If 'twere me I wouldn't be able to concentrate on much else thinking about what I was going to do with it.

    Lucky you having such a great daughter.
