Mirror, Mirror, On the Lawn
Which brings me to a question I must ask, Mirror Mirror, On the Lawn, How will my new shop do? Ok, that was totally corny and doesn't even rhyme, lol! :)
This pretty mirror was a thrift store find. I fell in love with the scrolling details and knew they would paint up BEAUTIFULLY! If my entry wasn't so small, I would not let this baby go! At times like these, I am so grateful I can see potential in thrift store treasures!
I scooped it up, and brought it home knowing it would be perfect for the shop! In my New Shop space, I have the entrance and foyer of an old historic Victorian mansion. Some of you may already know where the new shop is simply by that description. And you may just be 100% correct! BUT, until I am there for a whole week...mums the word. No, I'm not superstitious, just cautious. I digress...
As with most Victorian homes, the entrance is a little on the dim side. With the help of mirrors and vintage lamps, I am hopping the space will look as if it were sunny every day! And here in Northern Illinois, we could use every ounce of sunshine we get these days!
Alrighty then! I've got so much to do to get ready for the New Shop! Off to my studio to continue work!
Oh, I know it's Thursday...but this was almost done on Wednesday!
