Frame findings

March 27, 2012 § 3 Comments

I’ve been looking for a huge frame, I thought I could tilt it against a wall and make a succulent garden in it with a backing, wire, and small ledges. Succulents don’t need much soil or water and are wonderful in their radiating symmetry. But I’ve used the huge frame for another purpose, so check back soon. 4 foot frame was $5, the tan kids Gap shorts were $2, and oak framed mirror was $4.

I have been looking for a frame for a print with an odd size, 4″x8″, and here it is! I sprayed the frame white and had a spare piece of glass cut to size, Michaels did it for free! Another addition to the “I love daddy wall.”

Hoop foray

These little baby bonsai are hand embroidery, and were thifted for 4$. I love their detail and texture and they were liberated from brown plastic hoops and copious amount of hot glue. I see a lot of hoops used in groups for gallery walls. These are my first hoops and they are a perfect set!

Pinned project- rake rack

Inspiration comes from many places, mostly from the big wide world of the interweb for me. Here is the first of a weekly Pinterest project.

Pinned: a rakish tool for holding accessories.

I found my rake at a flea market for $2. Elbow grease removed the handle and it hangs in my hall by the powder room, on the way out the garage door, right where I can grab a bit of festive to wear whenever I want. Otherwise I’d never remember jewelry.
