Wow, so glad to finally be able to get back to our blog- We have had a crazy few weeks, and we wish it would have been because we were hunting and gathering more fabulous finds. Sometimes life, meaning family and friends has to come first. We know all of you can relate.
I am attempting to get my home transformed from winter to spring- yes! Don't you just LOVE putting the feel of spring in your home. We are so ready for warmer weather, fresh flowers, green grass and outdoor flea markets!
I am still not quite done transforming my home for spring, but I did get inspired to share some ideas for those wonderful old frames besides adding photos or a mirror. Finding a fabulous shabby frame is like finding gold to me, I love them and have a stack of them in my workroom, that I just can't rid of, but know they will find a place one day
All of the pictures are from my (Robin's) home.
I will change the display around the frames according to the season. For instance, using an old floral platter in the center for spring and summer and a white ironstone platter for fall and winter. Or, I LOVE setting a frame on a table or chest and letting it lean against the wall. You can place a wonderful sconce or smaller print inside, or just leave it empty and place your displays in front, using more gold or darker colors around the frame for fall and winter and more whites and pastels for spring, blues and ironstone filled with shells for summer. For my daughters room, she wanted a more glamorous feel, so we still have the antique pieces painted cream, but used black accents. I purchased the vinyl wall word 'Dream' knowing it would go over her bed, but it needed something more, so just adding one a wonderful frame from my workroom pile made it perfect.
Something else we love to do with old frames is make them in to bulletin boards. We have several for sale on our website and I will offer them for sale on this blog too. We only have a couple right now, but will have several more done this month. If you are interested, in one of them, let me know.
We also have Good Ju ju this weekend, Check out the details under chick happenings! Hope to see you there!
Love and God Bless, Robin, Niki, & Marlo
