White Frames

I love Wednesdays!  It's my first day off of the week and that means I get to play~ creating, thrifting, blogging.  Today also happens to be payday so I get to go shopping, too!   My first stop will be the thrift stores to look for some more frames.
I found this little item a few weeks ago.

It was meant to hang vertically but one chain link was broken.  Someone had painted pretty little flowers on each tile.  Cute, but not what I had in mind.

I took the chains off the back and added some little black and white photos of my kids.  My original plan had been to hang each tile from a ribbon or burlap on a rod but I wasn't happy with how it came together.  So I finally decided to frame them within a frame.

It's very hard for me to pass by any ornate looking frames I come across in thrift stores or yard sales.  I know they'll be gorgeous given a fresh coat of Heirloom White.  But most finds are rather small and I only had two larger ones on hand.  So these cuties are waiting for their frame:



Off to find the perfect one!  Have a great day and be sure to visit the charming parties below.  I would so very happy to have you as a follower and hope you'll visit again soon!
