Cecilia's To-Die-For-Jewelry Mirror

Hi Friends,
Take a gander at my pal Cecilia's jewelry mirror:  Look at the beautiful  pieces she found!  Look at those luscious pave pearls! Love it!!  Can't wait to go thrifting with Ceci next trip to Buenos Aires...

This is the lucky recipient, Cecilia's niece Camille.  A gorgeous mirror for a gorgeous girl!!
Want to make your own jewelry encrusted mirror?  See this previous post for the 'tutorial'.

I'm not sure what's more fun- making the mirror or collecting the loot!  Once you get started, I dare you to pass a garage sale or thrift store without looking for bling bling! (Don't even bother daring moi- wild horses couldn't stop me!)

My song on the radio...

Is this cute or what??!!  This pincushion was made from the La Todera  Harlequin Pillow and Pincushion Pattern by Nancy B. of  Go and check out this colorful, scrumptious blog!

Miss Nancy is a talented textile artist, vintage textile lover, and Kaffe fan!!  Check out her posts on pin weaving here and here.  Looking forward to trying that!!

Thanks, Nancy!!  Seeing your beautiful pics of my pattern was like hearing my own song on the radio!! (fiber artist version!) :))))
