A Quick Craft

This is a mirror that I picked up for a couple of dollars at a local antique store. It is made form that rough sort of cement-y stuff and while it is a great color for the yard (particularly the rock garden) it certainly is bland. I have buckets of glitter and glitter glue, as you can imagine, and found that with a couple of coats you can dress up about anything. 

Seal it with some sort of acrylic sealent and there you be. A quick and very inexpensive addition to match your place. Thrift stores and garage sales will always have something that you can make fit.

I am off to back some banana bread, and maybe some caramal candies, and to sew up a tote. And if the weather holds to photograph the yard for the new blog. That is right, we are doing a new blog. Our Newbie Garden is not quite ready for you yet. But give us a bit of time. The before pictures will be up soon and I look forward to sharing that with you too!

Also, feel free to check out my other blog Urban Tao. It is spiritual in purpose, but not religious. 

Now, have a fantastic weekend
