You've Been Framed!

Hello my friends, don't you just love the weekends?

They're a wonderful time to relax, rejuvenate, have fun, or get some of those little things done around the house.

A few weeks ago hubby and I went on a get away to St. George.
While there we visited one of my favorite shops, Urban Renewal.

It's an eclectic consignment shop that doesn't take just anything.  Their style is quite quirky and their front window displays always have me shaking my head just a little.

But once inside it's like you've stepped into a magical place.

I bought a large bird print.  Wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but loved it and it was only $7.95.

Today, using some old chippy tongue and groove that I picked up when Star Mill Antiques closed hubby made me a frame.

 
Isn't it sweet?
 
I love the words, Natural History of Birds!
 
I had a piece of foam board from the $1 store.  I sprayed it with spray glue and pressed the print on.
 
It fit snugly inside the tongue and groove.
 
I love that he took this old piece of wood and turned my print into art.
 
 
The kids gave us a miter saw for Christmas.  I say us because when we opened it they said that it was to help dad build my garden shed this Spring.

He bought some plans and won't be long till we get started. I Can hardly wait!!

He's having fun playing with his new toy.

Can't wait to use my bird art on the mantle after Easter!


 





This weekend one might say that I'm having a bit of chippy love!

hugs,
Jann

I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
