Pairing art with mirrors is a fun and rewarding way to inject personality into your home and gardens. When Barbara and I painted signs for the trails, the entire process was fun, from discussing possible names for different areas to tossing around ideas for signs.
We had ideas for many more signs, but we were far from the nearest Playamart and scrap pieces of wood for more signs!

The above mirror frame was painted last year when I visited Jim and Julie at their property where I am now living. Not only does the mirror enhance the bathroom area, but I am also transported via memories to our time together. Julie is still in the hospital in Nebraska and will see this post. (Hi Julie! Get well Pronto!)
The following photos represent diverse options for using mirrors in your home and gardens. Enjoy!
