Drab to Fab Frames

If you saw my last post, you know it's been snowing like crazy in my area.  While waiting for the snow to melt (hopefully soon), I've started going through some of my plain frames, and, giving them a bit more character with paint and appliques.



Sorry, I don't have the before photos.  I was too busy diving into the transformations.

I created these appliques using castings from some of my salvaged findings.  If you've been following me for any length of time, you know I have an enormous stash of metal bits and pieces.

This pair sold quickly on my Etsy shop to one of my favorite customers.  Thanks Mary.


This frame was quite plain.  I added the cherub and ornate bits.  I used it to frame a piece of board I painted and transferred a Paris print onto.



I've always loved the shape of this old frame.  It was lying in the back of my garage.  But, again, it was a plain jane.  Not anymore.








I have more plain janes to pull out.  Some will be available in my Etsy shop.  You can visit by clicking HERE.

Working While It SNOWS

In my last post, I said I was ready for Spring.  I'm still ready. Quite ready.  It's snowing like crazy here.  While waiting for Spring, I've been working on my Etsy shop.










So, while it's doing this,



I'll be working on my Etsy shop.  You can visit HERE.

READY FOR SPRING

Yes, I'm still here, and, I'm already over winter.  Must be my age.  I'm slowly coming out of hibernation after a very busy year.  I need to get a jump on the many projects I have swirling around in my head.  Show season will be here before I know it.



I've been going through some of my past projects during my down time. It's funny how some of my favorite projects are some of simplest.  Like this galvanized pail.  An easy decoupage project that took a few minutes to do.  The beauty is in the image and the weathered pail.  You can find the image in my Etsy shop by clicking HERE.

I'm ready to dress up more pails, and, fill them with flowers.  I'm ready for spring.
