A COUPLE STILL AVAILABLE
"Window Dressing"
Rearview mirror and beads
If you live on the Gulf Coast,
you have to have some Mardi Gras beads
hanging from your rearview mirror.
I'm pretty sure it's a law.
I wanted to recreate this tradition for the
New Orleans visitors, so I went
to my local junkyard and gathered some rearview mirrors.
I figured out a way to attach the mirror to a board,
then I carefully selected, hung and glued beads to the mirror.
I don't often repeat pieces, but I was able to make a half
dozen or so of these.
One lady from Baltimore said she hung hers up in her
office at work and that people always ask her about it.
