Bacon’s Show and Tell – The Gift That Made Me Laugh

We are back for Bacon’s Show and Tell!  Last month we were invited to share a gift we hated.  You’ll remember my adventures of the suspension bridge here.  Well, this month, we are invited to share a gift that made us laugh.  Here’s mine!

I was given this lovely flower mirror as a gift from my husband when we went to a craft fair.  I asked for one of those wreaths that you hang on your door in different seasons.  I received this instead.  Not trying to sound unappreciative, but ladies, you know how it goes.

Why did it make me laugh?  Well, seriously folks, have you ever seen a more hideous mirror in your life??

MIrror 2

I attempted it to make it my own!  Also hilarious because my husband is a professional painter…yet I am doing the painting here…

Mirror 3

I worked on it for a long time.  Could my nose get any closer to it?

Mirror 4

And here is the final product!  It hangs in my bedroom and I make to look in it every day.  Just makes me laugh every time I see it knowing how much work I put into it and how it came to be mine.

    🙂 Kind of like ‘frig art’ from your kids. You keep it because you know it was given/made lovingly and it’s all the wrong colors but you still love it. Sweetness.

    It doesn’t matter what the mirror looks like, just as long as you’re happy with what you see in the mirror.

    Wow, that’s a great one for today! Sometimes the menfolk get all confused and wrong about style fur sure. BOL It looks better now, and in the grand scheme of things any excuse to smile is a good thing. 🙂
