I showed you this frame earlier this week. Over four feet of solidly joined hardwood. I cleaned it and spray painted it blue. I think I’ve finally gotten the hang of spray painting properly.
And since I smashed one of my favorite possessions this week, a bust of David who was my traditional mantle dweller, the frame sits well up there. There is a gaping hole with wires on our mantle, where a flat screen TV can be mounted, and as we rent it stays a hole. The ceilings are two stories up so we need a little bit of a large scale. When we moved in I covered a 3′x5′ piece of insulating board with fabric to be the hole cover and a colorful focal point. I just added the frame this week.
AND the frame is already in use as a photo prop. It is big enough for multiple kids, multiple objects, a whole family! How neat is that?
Oh those siblings.

Real mail is completely wonderful; a way to send someone tangible love without having to buy a plane ticket. It is very personal to send and heartwarming to receive. Go drop a postcard in the mail and make someone’s day!
A little while ago I found this packaged in my mailbox. Could it be? A paper camera?
We put it together…
And now to try it! How long does one expose film through a pinhole shutter? I’m excited.
