New Frames and READY for Spring!!

Hi guys! I drug out the old camera since my charger has not yet arrived. It took a while to get some decent pics, but I was determined! Since my tooth pain has subsided I have been busy making more frames. I have also had several orders here in my hometown. I have many more in the making, but just wanted to show you a few I just completed. I am now not only doing the frames with the pictures inside, but also just the frame with the bow and rhinestones at the top. You can put your own pictures in these. I'm having so much fun playing around with these, I practically live at the craft stores. Alot of you have given me some great ideas, keep them coming, I appreciate your suggestions! This first frame would be a perfect gift for a friend and must say it's one of my favs! I will be making more similar to this one.

See how pretty it looks in a setting.


This picture doesn't do this justice. That cross really sparkles! For some reason the background looks orangy, it'r really the same color at the ribbon.


You can put your own picture in this one. I love the Fleur de lis!


This one turned out really elegant. Mom and I both love butterflies,and yes, that's me in the picture. I was dressed as a pirate wench for a party. Sassy looked adorable as Snow White!


Looks pretty good next to that box. Hmmm......I might have to make myself one of these.


I am sooooo ready for spring! I found this butterfly box at T.J. Maxx the other day for only $9.99. What a deal! It reminded me of spring and worked perfectly on the coffee table. I also got a set of the books on the coffee table and in the bookcase for $30 the other day at an estate sale. Some of them were a little worn, but they are 100 years old afterall and the binders were really pretty. I thought that was a good deal too, considering I've been looking and can't find a set of 12 for under $75.


Thanks for stopping by! Maybe I gave you some ideas you can make yourself or if you prefer, you can order these off my Etsy store. It's listed under "My Links" on the left hand side. I am going to upload them now. I will also be participating in "Flaunt Your Red Party" on Friday hosted by Nancy at http://southernlady-nancy.blogspot.com/ so be sure and stop back by. Boy do I have lots of red!
