Summer Reflection

I had originally made this old lattice into a mirror and displayed it behind my sink.Click to see it as it was before. I decided to re do the sink area and I made another mirror for that. Click here to to see the new mirror. Anywho...I had this lattice half done with mirrors and decided to finish it up and flip the shelf to the bottom. I like it a lot better now. It reflects in a darker area of the walkway so that brightens up the spot too!
I glued 60, 4 inch mirrors to the back of each lattice square. Some were cut to fit. I left a few empty along the frame to add interest.
Gluing the individual mirrors adds a bit of extra sparkle because each mirror is at a different position instead of using one big mirror. Both would have worked though.
Anyhow, just a thought as of what to do with a piece of lattice you no longer want to use as a trellis or whatever(-:

Dog Days Of Summer

Hi Blogger Friends! I hope you are all enjoying your Summer!
I am just hangin' out with my Mom and trying to stay cool!!
I am on rat and snake patrol as usual.
One rattlesnake was killed today,

but I missed out on the action. My Mom said I had to stay inside where it was safer. My Mom just doesn't understand how much I would love to grab a hold of a rattler. I can shake those red racer snakes like nobodys' business! But, as usual Mom said she doesn't want me to get bit. She is a worry wart.
Well I am off to take a nap.
Life is tough!
