I had bought this mirror from Cindy in Lincoln. It had a plainish, flatish gold frame. The mirror itself was cloudy, chippy and cool looking. At first I thought that I would paint the frame. But the flat border was an invitation for festooning.
Most of the stuff in my "junk drawer" is old, and a lot of it is metal which I thought would look good glued on the flat border. I had a stash of small rectangular mirror pieces which were my inspiration. I had poured these out over the surface of the big mirror to look at them, and liked that look so well that I glued some directly onto the mirror itself. I also sacrificed the rest of my Cracker Jacks charms -- they were just the right size.
