This watercolor hung in her bedroom.
The birds hung in the diningroom. I glued them in another frame to make them a little larger.
I love plates on the wall. This niche was supposed to be a closet, but Sherry suggested this to add a little more character to the house. Remember..... we built this house off a model home so there are many more people in the area with the same floorplan. We tried to add some things to make our house a little different. The oil painting is similar to the one on the mantle. I just love colorful landscapes!
This picture is one of my favorites! I was intantly drawn to it (at Kirkland's) because of all the color. Mom got it for me for my bithday when we moved into the house. It's a little contemporary..... honestly, I like contemporary, I tend to like lots of different styles!
I'll have to show you more on a different post. My house isn't big, I need something to show you next time! lol, Great idea Barb!
Now for more frames...... This is what I came up with for the initials. Of course there are many different colors this one could be done in. I did this one to match my house. I can do any initial you would like! This one has 3 different ribbons and a B on snake skin paper. I painted the edge of the frame gold.
When Sherry and I went to market we saw some frames with rhinestones in the middle of the bow. They were so pretty (and pricy). You guys suggested dog frames. I found the rhinestone paws at market and came up with this. You can put your own picture in this one, it can be for a dog or cat! I can also put your pet's name in rhinestones like I did for Sassy. I will also be making some in different colors. I also have rhinestone Fleur de lis, butterflies, hearts, crosses and adorable baby carriages I will be making soon. This isn't the best pic of Sassy.....everything is still on my camera!
And easter.....what a wonderful time of the year!
I will be listing these on my Etsy store if you are interested. My store is listed under "My Links" right under "My Followers" on the left hand side. If you have a special request just let me know! Thanks again to Barb for hosting "What's on your wall Wednesday!" I hope I can blog tomorrow, we are in the middle of an ice storm and I'm just hoping the temps stay up so the ice will melt. Hopefully our power won't go out! Have a great week!

This first sweet award is from Melissa at http://melissasheartandhome.blogspot.com/ . She has become a really good friend over the past several months and I'm honored she would pass this special award onto me. I am a mom of one 9 yr. old boy Chase, but also a mom to my cat, Coco and my dog, Sassy. Of course I love Chase the most. LOL! I try to be a good mom, but of course I have many flaws. The other night my mom skills were tested when Chase puked all over the bed and the bathroom floor at 12:30 in the morning. Yuck! I was in such a deep dreamy sleep too! I know Tootsie went through this just recently with her kids. It's all part of being a mom! Luckily it wasn't a virus, we don't know what it was, but right after he puked he was fine. I hope you weren't eating when you read this. lol!
Thank you Michelle for this sweet award! I try to have a great attitude and I know I have graditude that you all come to visit me!If you have received this award just know that I think you all have a great attidude and show lots of gratitude!
I would like to pass this award to Nicole at
I was also tagged by Diane at http://fourpawsco.blogspot.com/ . I was a little nervous about what I would find. LOL!! No.....I just hoped it wasn't some awful picture with my mouth wide open or better yet....one of my mom, she would kill me!
Here are the rules......
2. Post the 4th picture in the folder.
3. Explain the photo.
4. Tag 4 fellow bloggers to join in the fun!
I was hoping to have something more interesting! This was taken at Christmas last year. I did get a bigger tree this year, but everything was decorated basically the same. I guess I should have cheated and showed you something more interesting.lol!
I tag Donna at http://designson47thstreet.blogspot.com/ and Dawn at http://dawnieslifeifbythesea.blogspot.com/ I know I'm a little late posting this one and most of you have already been tagged. This was a fun one!
I will have more frames on my next post. I have a few done, but wanted to make some more before I post them. Look for that post Tues. or Wed. Have a great week!!

This is the master bath. It's still in progress, but is going to be beautiful!!
I just love this chandy and the tops of the cabinets! Question?? She has a shower door that is gold metal around the edges that she would like to paint silver. Has anyone ever painted one before?
