    This is just complicated enough for me to be thankful I don’t have a fabulous, beautiful “kingdom” mirror to write on. I love the way it looks and you did a great job. I hope you are going to do a post about the pillows with the bows…they look great.

    Regular Elmer’s white glue is washable and is very glitter friendly.

    Legions of masterful and mind blowing ideas have emerged from closets of shame. I think that may be a Quantum Physics principle…somewhere in another dimension. Closets of shame hold all the mind jewelry. Go look. Victoria, you’re just building up to the next glittering stair step of fab.

      love this comment-Take a negative and presto-change-o- a positive…….. and one involving quantum physics, mind jewelry, and other dimensions no less. Brilliant!

        I agree! Particularly love the “mind jewelry” concept!

    Hahaha! Love reading your blog! I am far less talented than you, so I tend to find very easy solutions to everything. This year i found snowflakes on filmy plastic that stick to windows and mirrors. Easy to take off and use next year. And lucky me, they even had them in glittery blue, silver and white! So maybe, they sell this plastic in a craft store? Hope this helps.

    About that walk in closet of shame. It seems that a closet of shame should be crawl-in, not walk-in. If it is walk-in (head held high) then it is a closet of defiance. Only kind to have.

    Ah, another hilarious posting…I too have a closet of shame(not including the drawers and shelves as well…). But I just tell myself that “someday” it will come in handy…and it can always be sold as supplies on Etsy. The mirror is glorious…look forward to your next post.

    Only a CLOSET of shame?! Mine has long been called The Room of Shame , repository of crap (aka treasure), treasure (aka crap), unfinished stuff, not to mention my collection of clothes from the 80s that I saved for the daughter I planned to have ( small error there – I had two sons). Love you, Victoria!! Ps good home wanted for complete collection of Harpers and Queen magazine from 1979 on 🙂

    Looks like “GOYA” as in Francisco Goya. Good romantic reference. I like it.

    you could also use K-Y Jelly. we use it to stick bows on baby girls heads and its water based and clear wo will hold the glitter on a mirror or baby either one.

    Oh great idea Jeannie! But I would think it would make the bows slip right off a baby girl’s head. Shows you what I know. Glitter on a mirror should be perfect though.

    It might have already been mentioned as I was just tooooo lazy to read through all the comments, but you could have probably used something like light Karo syrup (it’s for cooking/baking). It’s sticky and will dry but it is not glue, it’s clear syrup and will wash off. Just a thought besides I really like your idea and may have to try it myself, only I will probably use syrup, just sayin’.

    Great idea putting glitter on the mirror! And I ADORE your throw pillows. How do you keep Paul from using the couch though? My hubby is convinced that if there is throw pillow on the couch it was put there for his head to rest on during a nap. Smooshed is not such a good look for large bows.

    DEAR Victoria, your blog is one of my primary reasons for getting out of bed in the morning. You are absolutely perfect just the way you are. You may haveva single closet of shame, but I have a filled my ” crap room” of have to have crafting products. The remaining products I keep hidden in a variety of containers marked x-tra winter blankets, items to be donated, and my favorite unused crafting materials which run the gamut from jewelry making supplies, quilting, painting and scrapbook paper and all of the bellishments that professional scrapbook bloggers would wany. Unfortunatly, these containers are marked, heirloom Christmas decorations-glass do not touch! MY HUSBAND IS CONVINVED HE SHOULD NEVER-EVERY touch my precious items.
    Problem: I have to find my X-Mas decorations
    A.S.A.P.
    You are a genuis. Have you given serious thought to writting a book or a sitcom? YES, yourself and Paul will be the leading stars.
    Love your blog. Happy Holiday’s to you and your family. YOU ROCK THE KINGDOM. DEE

    You ADORE your posts and this one was hilarious. Of course, I just cleaned out my closet of shame and it took me 2 whole days. sigh. Glad that is over.

    Your mirror is perfect! Happy Holidays to you and your family. I love it when you mention what Paul says, you two are perfect for each other.

    What does one call it when it’s not just a closet but a old school house classroom, a secretively paid for 8×10 storage unit and a basement studio all stuffed with things that will absolutely positively get used some day …. oodles of mr potato head parts, old pull down school maps, mini globe collection, vintage train case collection, chandeliers, many pairs of elvis sunglasses, boxes of old photos of random people I’ve never known and file drawers full of letters home from soldiers I’ve never met and did I mention all the chairs and tables and dressers that I am ‘repurposing’? Closet of shame? How about life of shame!?!?!? And isn’t that’t just swell? 🙂

      Jules, I’d be interested in purchasing one of the old school maps if you are selling.

    Equally as impressive as the glittery writing is the fact that you were able to get good mirror pictures without your reflection or the reflection of a big mess on the other side of the room, (speaking from experience here.)

    I second the request for a post on the pillows with the bows – love them! Love your mirror and you posts too…….
    Thanks for admitting to the Closet of Shame. It’s nice to know I am not alone.

    Everything looks absolutely beautiful! I hope you’re planning a great big family get together to enjoy all this hard work that your doing. Next time you want to write on a mirror (or window) give Plaid Paints a try. They have a line that’s made for fake glass window painting and I’m pretty sure you can get it in clear (to add your glitter to). It’s made to come off even when you use it in a window that gets sunlight all day and leave it there for several years thinking ‘someday I’m going to take that off’. Don’t ask me how I know that~
