Work is crazy right now. I have been going NON STOP for days. I literally come straight home, make some dinner and go straight to my bed. And do everything from there. I mean, it IS after 9 pm every night this week...but whatever.
I have gotten out and about this week between meetings and commitments though. I did manage a pedicure and a trip or two to the Dollar General. (I live on the edge, I know) Anyway, the Dollar General sometimes has some stuff that can be overlooked because of...well, presentation.
But the other day I found this cute print. Of course it came in a not so nice frame (with no glass) The print was stapled to the back. The bird and quote were so cute that I needed to have it. I figure I'd find something new to do with it.
I got a little frame and cut the print to fit. This picture doesn't do it justice but it looks really cute now that the focus is just the image and the quote. I like it much better. AND I'm saving the other frame so that I can paint it and re purpose it in the future.
The quote is "We loved with a love that was more than love." Edgar Allen Poe
My friend Alisha liked it so I went back tonight to get her one too.
I also got this little thing. It was half price after I told the cashier that it was broken (the plaque part came off the frame backing while I was in the store). Even better because I don't think it's the best thing ever. BUT I do plan to paint the frame white to make it more cottage style and I'll reattach it. I will put it out in my enclosed front porch with the wicker furniture. My goal is to make that space more beachy and cottage feeling. I have a jar of seashells out there that was my inspiration for the beach theme.
I think this will be cute when I get to paint it up. I'll be sure to show you when that happens.Right now, not so cute.
