it's beginning to look a lot like...Christmas?


This mirror was found by my
charming husband

I wasn't impressed...it was missing chunks
and he over-paid
wood or not!


Boy, did he school me!
He created a wire frame
molded the missing pieces
and then carved them by hand to match...


Yeah, so beyond my capabilities...
he's pretty handy like that!

This is just a little peek...
the bow just reminded me
of the holidays
(yes, the holidays!)
so he custom mixed a
deep, rich cranberry

He wanted to paint the leaves
(which do resemble evergreens)
deep, forest green
but I thought that was a bit too literal
for Christmas
so we went with Paris Grey and Pure
with lots of dark wax

It's lovely

ho ho ho.
