Shabby Heart Mirror....

Hi Bloggers!  Well since I'm in a creating mood, here's another little easy peasy project for you.

First of all you have to be lucky enough to find a cute heart shaped mirror inside a rustic wooden frame and if you aren't that lucky.... then any shape wooden frame and mirror will work just fine.  

Get out your burlap ribbon, some glue and a sea shell, button or an old piece of jewelry....
 I painted the frame a soft blue gray and then sanded it to the bone!

Oops, just noticed my arm in the pictures.....ugh!

Okay that's it.  
I'm now going to visit your blogs and see what you've created this week.

Good job with the mirror Sissie! I don't know how many times I've taken photos, and realized there was something showing, that I didn't want to show, lol ~ so I would have to go back and re-take the picture :)

This is so sweet, Sissie! It looks harder than you made it sound! I am terrible at making bows though, but I would love to give it a try.
