Mosaic Mirror


I used a selection of Incomparable buttons to create the mosaic border for a mirror.

I decided on an ethnic theme with elephant and bird feather buttons and others with earthy colours.

I edged the mirror with copper tape.

I love the way this mirror turned out - it adds a great point of interest to my small guest cloakroom.


Look out for a terrific new blog hop giveaway we are doing with the Quilting Gallery next week...will post the details soon...

Thanks Anna for a super tutorial.
 
My dad and brother are cycling a 3 day mountain bike race this weekend aptly named the Wine 2 Whales because they start on a wine farm, Lourensford, and end up in a coastal town, Hermanus, that is famous for its whale watching. Its about 34C here so they are doubly challenged. I am totally in awe of them.
 
What are you getting up to this weekend?
Whether its doing something physically challenging or just curling up with a good book and a cup of cocoa by the fire, have a wonderful weekend everyone!
