I Found My Frames!

DSC01805_1358

It’s really sad what passes for excitement for me these days.  The other night I made my 100th trip to our small storage basement hoping that whatever box I packed my cream-colored-distressed-vintage-looking frames in would just present itself to me and say, “Here we are!”.   Basically, that’s just what happened!  I saw some bins that were not stacked as they had been and I opened the closest one.  Don’t you know there was a box inside labeled “White Distressed Frames ~ Fragile”!

I bought these so long ago {about 10 years} off of eBay just waiting for that perfect thing to be framed in them.  The detail is wonderful and I remember they were quite a bargain.

I wanted to do something to work with the tea party theme for the table I painted up for my granddaughter.  I printed out these pictures that I saved from The Graphics Fairy.

Karen offered them in all four colors!  I printed them on ivory colored card stock and I printed two in mirror image so that they would face the other way.

Now I just need something for the center.  I had gotten this large frame at Goodwill a few months ago and I just ordered a print for it the other night that I think will work well to tie it all together.

I have plans to join in on the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at A Fanciful Twist in June, so I’m sure this will all come in handy!

This is fantastic! I'm so glad you found them. Isn't it amazing how we look and look for something and usually it just turns up on its own, as if waiting all along for us to look in just the right spot. Turned out beautiful!

Hi Kathy,
The pictures in those frames are just perfect. Combined with that print you ordered, it is a fabulous wall display. Glad you found those frames (I probably would have forgot I even had them). Your granddaughter is very lucky to have such a talented Grandma!

Oh My! I love those teapots! I could just go to Graphics Fairy and download them I guess, but . . . nah. Think I'll have to try and paint one :D

They turned out lovely. Great theme!

Everything looks great! I love that you flipped 2 of the images to have them all facing the center. And, that they each have their own color. You are so lucky...... when I loose something, I usually have to replace it to have them turn up!

Love those frames and the prints are a sweet match for them...just perfect! I can't tell you the stuff I have stashed back for later. I'll find it and pull it out again eventually...It's always such fun to unpack things that were put away until there was room for them or 'til I found a use for them! I've never regretted picking something up that I loved...even if I waited a while to use it.

Brambleberry Cottage said...

You're such a clever gal, Kathy! I love the way you reversed the images so all the teapots would face center stage. And the print you ordered will round out the vignette beautifully. ;)

Thanks for joining the party. I love seeing all your creative ideas linked up.

Blessings,
