A Piece of My Past

I've had this hand crocheted flower for many years. It is a flower my mother made back in the 50's or 60's before she passed away. I was just nine years old when we lost her. I have very few things to connect to her memory so when I ran across it in a drawer the other day I decided it needed a bit more respect than to just be hidden away. Of course I forgot to photo the framed mini mirror before I started but I'm sure you get the idea. I painted the wood frame with an antique white, cut scrapbook paper to cover the mirror and then used pop dots to adhere the crocheted flower inside. I'm quite happy with the results.
