Every Inchie Monday - MIRROR

Only one day late, thats not bad for me, lol. This week's theme was MIRROR. I wanted to use an oval cheval mirror, because the narrow width and good height would give me room for a figure on the other side. I have always loved this very vintage ballerina, I thought she would be perfect for this, practicing her poses in front of a mirror.

I used a tiny bit of silver foil for the mirror surface, a teensy gold oval cut from a gold paper doily, a snippet of floral paper with the smallest design I could find in my stash for the wallpaper, and of course the ballerina. I am afraid my hands weren't quite steady enough to do a really neat job of cutting everything out. Still, I like this little inchie -

Whilst out geocaching earlier with Nick, I spotted some delightful snow drops growing in the woods, Couldn't help myself, I had to pick just a few to take home with me, they are such a beautiful harbinger of Spring. I'll take pics later, daylight permitting, and hopefully post some.
