Thrifty Store Finds, Fabulous Studio Decor

First, I want to thank Rebecca for the lovely Blog Award! She is just the best Blogger. You will enjoy reading her crafting tales and her life stories as a Mum....I am so glad I met her through the Blogging World. I hope someday to meet her in person.

Here is my five favorite blogs this month:

www.oneprettything.com (full of great ideas)



Okay, here is a frame I purchased this week at the Thrifty Store. It is brassy metal with a lovely floral print inside of it.

Yes, the price tag says 94 cents. That is what I purchased it for. Yes, it was made in Italy.


Soon to be it's new home....my studio wall. I have found several frames like this and I have spray painted them all black. I am in need of one more so my pattern looks more like a diamond than a triangle. I am not sure if I will put anything in the frames. I kind of like the idea of the frame becoming the art. I purchased the largest frame at Ikea. It started the great frame search. I am hoping by the end of Summer to have found the final frame. Oh, I forgot to mention the "K" came from Archivers. I love the curvy style of the font! I hope you enjoyed a peek in my studio. Wish I could show you more but the table and the floor is up to my eyeballs with mess. I maybe will get it cleaned by the weekend. Until then, I will be in Messy Land.
