Blue Sky Farm

My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..

Mirror, Mirror on the wall....

Okay, its been cold outside so I have been busy inside..  While I was in Washington  last month,  My friend Leila gave me two window frames to decorate.. Her husband removed the glass for me and showed me how to cut mirror tiles to fit.. I painted them first a aqua color and then went to work on the mirror project. I have never attempted glass cutting but now feel confident. I only messed up on 4 tiles and cut  one finger.. I'm adding aqua to my decor for the family room and think it really "cooled" the room. We get lots of warm sun in there by afternoon, so its a nice feeling now, open and light.

  I have had the two wall sconces, Thinking perhaps aqua candles would look nice in the pots.

I moved some things around in the dining room and now there's no room for any more!...( the room is bigger than it looks here..)

I guess I will be making another trip to Joanns & Michaels for candles & aqua print fabric to make pillows & draperies next, or perhaps a trip to Ross.. It's always fun to browse  there...I have another room to decorate....before Christmas.

Nice job Cheryl! Sorry you cut yourself though. I love the window/mirrors...what a great idea! And the aqua does look nice and adds a nice bit of color.

I love the mirrored windows also. I just saw a huge version (only it was white, not blue) of your project just yesterday in a high end furniture store in Eugene. Love the presence the reflection brings to the room.
