Giving these photo frames...

...a new lease on life.
Here's just one of the thrifty finds I've discovered lately.

Inspired by my sister, I knew what the possibilities were when I saw these frames and it brought at the dreamer in this Southern Belle.

So far, like most of my painting projects, it's not finished.  Surprise, I know.  Its just that I am always waiting for that perfect, peaceful moment that never does quite come to paint.

However, hopefully in the next couple weeks, I'll be able to catch up and not only paint these thrifty finds, but turn them into something beautiful.

It's always fun to find frames at thrift stores. Sometimes when I actually NEED a certain size frame I have to go to Michaels or somewhere else and they can be so expensive for just a cheapy frame! So finding them second-hand is always good! Can't wait to see your finished product.

I've got some frames myself, so I can't wait to see what you do to give me a push.. Looking forward to it Belle!

Looks great, Belle even if they aren't all finished. I love how you used them to form a phrase. Cute!

I love the frames & I know what you mean about finding the time to do certain projects. I don't have little ones around (except for my fuzzy one), it's my own, self-imposed need to do and/or attempt to do everything. I think a lot of us live in a project-filled world!
