Another weekend has come and gone, and MONDAY morning is here AGAIN!
Jonny left for two weeks of camp helping counsel mentally and emotionally challenged kids down at Clemson University in SC. We will miss him.
*ack..my trainer is gone...maybe I can surprise him when he gets back with some weight loss to report in!!!...maybe???
Anybody else ever feel like this???
Joining Susan in today's Metamorphosis Monday over at:
This is one of the easiest and quickest makeovers I have done yet. Pulled some stuff out of my closet on Friday because I got an idea.
I started out with this Frame I got from Salvation Army a while back. (.99) I loved all the carved detail in it.
Then I dug til I found this remnant of Black and White Country Rooster toile fabric. (a piece I found at the little thrift for .25)
I cut a piece of cardboard the size of the piece of glass. Cut a piece of Fabric with the Rooster scene in the center. Wrapped that around the cardboard and secured on the back. Subject matter DONE.
Then I got some white paint from my stock of paint supplies, a small stippling-like brush, and applied sparse amounts of paint on the brush and "dry-brushed" the frame just to barely cover the original gold color. It gives it that distressed white look that goes well with the scene. It was dry in less than 5 minutes.
I had in mind to put this at my new "little spot of my own" you saw in last Thursday's post.
Where the small gold framed mirror hung under the window pane....
This picture now resides.
AND!!! take note! The little Peter Rabbit clock that was broken..... My dad fixed it and it has already returned to its home here with me! Love It! Love my dad too!
And the mirror?? It has a new place too.
Frame Metamorphosis and new decor..... in less than 15 minutes! Woot! That fits my DayTimer schedule.
Thanks for stopping by and Hope your Monday is a great one.
May little hearts and loving actions shower on you today. And remember THIS:
Cheap thrills are a dime a dozen. True and lasting happiness comes from the hand of God
Thanks for praying...
