I found this mirror at an estate sale for $5. It was a GREAT find with a small crack in the bottom right corner. The mirror was 1/4" thick weighing close to 50lbs! (They don't make 'em like they use to!)
That's when my wheels started turning...
I cleaned it up, and then, starting in the corner I attached these blingy adhesives that I found at Michael's.
Next, I attached the bling on a roll on all four sides. I used a different pattern for the sides.
Here's a shot of the corner with the crack ::
I wasn't too concerned that the crack was completely covered since it is on the bottom side.
The final look ::
(Just waiting to be hung on the bedroom wall.)
It made a beautiful gift for Sally's 13th birthday! She was so thrilled to receive it:)
P.S. The adhesives peel off easy enough if she ever wanted to change it up.
(Must add...she did NOT touch it, and immediately after I sent David this pic, I put outlet covers in all the outlets. This was day 2 of her army crawling adventures.)
(The first of the Christmas gifts arrived.)

Okay. This one has a neat story behind it. Ester found a caterpillar on the sidewalk. She placed it in a cup, and the next day, it had wrapped itself into a little cocoon. 9 days later, it came out as this beautiful, yellow butterfly!
(It now resides in a hermit crab's cage :)
(Note: Mabel's mask...crazy girl didn't like the smell so she put on a mask from her science lab kit. Stan on the other hand, was so into it that we had to take his shirt off! LOL)
After swim team practice, she invited a team mate/ girlfriend out for dinner to one of our favorite BBQ joints and then home for some cake and ice cream.
(She is a die hard Rangers fan.)
But not before some retail therapy ::
(Mabel decided to forgo a trip to B&BW since it is a Wii day. They only get Wii time on the weekends and she wanted to take full advantage of two siblings not there to take their turns :)
It's fun to see how they are changing and growing up. She has moved from American Girl to Bath & Body Works.
I mentioned in the past that they only get a big birthday party every four years. On the off years, they invite a dinner guest over.
An unforeseen bonus....we have come to know better and truly enjoyeach individual they invite. As a parent, I love to get to know their friends on a more personal level. And they truly enjoy the one-on-one time with each friend :)
Happy birthday to our Sally! May God continue to bless you and keep you always! We love you!
