The Gladstone Avenue Mirror

Two weeks ago I spotted a broken mirror on Gladstone Avenue. I wanted to take it home, but I thought about all the stuff here that I have to do something with. I'll take a picture of it! I decided remembering one of my decluttering tips.

As soon as I took one picture, I noticed it was kind of an artsy effect. So I took a bunch of photos.

Don't tell Red Vera, but if I had been with you, I would have made you bring it home. That is a neat frame.

I saw this mirror, too and wanted to take it home with me. Guess I should carry a camera with me. Now that I see it again, I wish I'da taken it home.

I like the pictures. Especially the one with the double image. The frame is different, but can't think what you would use it for. Best that you did leave it.

Me again. While lying in bed last night I was thinking that mirror would look great in my one of my flower or herb gardens. If you see anything like again think of me. I currently have two old windows with some stained glass pieces left in them and they look great when the sun shines on them.

I also love the frame, and I love the colour tone in the photos, particularly the reds from the car lights.

As for what to use this for, replace the broken mirror with glass or plexiglass and you have a picture frame (perfect for framing an enlargement of that top photo... and a delightful twist as the viewer realizes what they're seeing).

CAUTION: This idea only works if you do it now, otherwise it's clutter. Sign me... CreativeButCluttered

Somewhere in these comments there is a lesson to be learned.

I can't quite figure out what it is, but in the meantime...

Mom, I will keep my eyes open for things that will look good in your gardens.

CreativeButCluttered, for your idea of replacing the broken mirror right away so that it is not clutter to work, wouldn't you have to have glass or plexiglass of the right size already in your house?
