Thrift Store Frames & A Winner

I was dropping off some clothes at Goodwill Friday and figured, you know, while I’m here, I might as well look around.  After seeing a bunch of bloggers finding great frames last week, I decided to head straight to that area and jackpot!


I found all of these behind larger size frames.   I’ve decided this one is my favorite and that means I have no idea which of the ten ideas rolling around in my head I’m going to do.


I’ve seen similar styles to this next one get transformed in blogland.


This one came with a print, but that will be coming out.  Those colors would have gone with the dining room in my old house, but not here.


This little one I almost passed over, but then gave it a second look.  It’s not ornate or detailed in any way, but it is wood and it does have its glass.  I think once it’s painted it will have a little more life.


I also picked up three paperback books and then proceeded to rip the covers off them when I got home.  I wanted another book stack to put on my pedestal since I put my other one in my tote.


I was pleased to see that the Paris stamped muslin I wrapped around it fit so you can see “Paris”.


Now, onto the giveaway winner!  The lucky winner {chosen via} of my giveaway for Lara Spencer’s book, I Brake For Yard Sales


is #40 ~ Jamie!!!

Congratulations, Jamie of Domestically Speaking!!

I know how much you love frames and can't wait to see what you do with them. I have a couple of frames from my dad's house and I really don't know what to do with them.

Happy Sunday!

Those were great frames! Would certainly give a house a warm and cozy feel due to all the photos posted using these frames.

I can't wait to see what you do with the frames. Great finds. It pays to move things out of the way to see what's behind them.

Great frames. I love shopping GW and yard sales for frames. It's so easy and inexpensive to change them if they aren't the right color. Looking forward to seeing how you transform them. Happy Monday.

Can't wait to see what you come up with for your little frames. I buy my old paperback books to make book bundles with from GW too! Cheap and less guilt that way. Ha! Love how your large one turned out.
