I was inspired to create some custom art work for my new house. There will be more on where the inspiration came from in the next post – although I’m sure some of you will not be surprised to hear it was Elise’s blog enJOY it. I was at Goodwill with my friend Tory and found a picture of a flower in a frame for $6. I really like the frame, I didn’t so much like the flower – but I figured I could fix that. Check it out.
Thoughts on the frame:
Pulling out the picture was pretty easy. Painting the frame was a little tricky because of all of the detailing. I superglued the glass to the frame. It was also really easy to hang on the wall – I hung it in my stairwell.
Thoughts on the quote:
Ifound this quote a while ago and I fell in love with. I wrote the quote with a paintbrush using water colors – which is both easier and harder than you expect. Actually writing letters is easy, getting enough paint on your brush to make it look purposeful is not. This was attempt one. I’m going to take another go at it, but I’m sure that won’t be for a while, so I figured I’d hang the trail run in the frame for now.
What are some of your favorite quotes?
One other that I have written down is “Sharing food with another human being is an intimate act that should not be indulged in lightly.” -MFK Fischer; we’ll see if I can work that into my kitchen somehow.
To everybody in the USA, have an awesome Labor Day weekend. Relax and enjoy!!
