Baby? Maybe...Not!


The slightly frightening obsession with frames continues...



So, just because this frame set was supposed to be used to capture "baby's
first year" in pictures...well, my youngest baby is 2 1/2...and has whiskers &
a furry bum! But this set was on clearance...$5...baby or no, I could make
them work!



Paint, paint, paint...the magic elixir! ;}




I began with the idea of simplicity...


A few "this & that's" to create frames that would actually be used for pictures!
{my frames so rarely are! ;}



{Yes, I know I said "simple"...but only the shells are glittered...not the entire
frame! To me, that's "simple"!}




But as I created one "simple" frame after another...another idea began to
stir...



Who needs a picture?





So, I just made some of the frames into little works of art unto themselves!




{couldn't resist the feather! ;}



OK...she's pretty cute! She probably rates a frame!




But I'm pretty happy with all the others just as they are!

  6. What perfect ideas for perfect frames. I am glad to know I am not the only one who collects frames. I have so many I want to pass them down to the kids and start all over for the fun part of it. LoL

  9. Poor, poor baby! She sooo wanted to be featured in one of those cute little frames. Maybe you could sparkle her up a bit and feature her in one?>) Adorable-pictures, frames and baby! Diana

  32. Love the frames. I have about 50 frames not in use at the moment because they don't blend together. I think I'll go paint them like yours and see if I can give them a new life full of beach colors and pictures!
