Social Networking

I finally did it!  I took the plunge.  I am officially a "facebooker"(whatever that means).  I know I'm a little late on this train, but I was resisting for some strange reason.  Probably because my life is already so internet driven, I thought facebook would be just another "thing" that I would have to keep up with.  But, I really am enjoying it.  I'm not quite sure what I am doing right now, but I am managing to learn a few things here and there.  So come on ya'll, head on over and become a fan!  Show me some love!  Or you could just say hi ;)  You'll be the first to know about sales, new items, and whatever other random things I feel like posting! 

On another note, we have had a quite warm winter, which I am absolutely not complaining about.  It would be spring all year long if it were up to me.  Knowing that the warmer weather is in reach, I am dreaming of sun dresses, sandals, and the sun on my skin, which inspired this fun little number...

Last, my good friend Connie at 3 Divas Studio has started her new blog!  You must check her out!  She's witty and oh-so-talented with her gorgeous crocheted boho jewelry!

Another piece of the puzzle

I finally wrapped up a small project yesterday for our revamped master bedroom plan.  I bought a vintage frame a few years ago for $2 from a flea market and have had it tucked away waiting for the perfect piece of art to go in it.  Remember this print I showed you?
(found here)

Well, after painting my $2 frame white, and adding a white mat, she's all framed up and looking beautiful in our master bedroom!

Again, I used my little trick to help make this print appear larger.  It measures 11x14 and I used a 16x20 mat and frame to beef it up a little.  I couldn't be happier with how it turned out!  I think this old frame painted white is absolutely perfect for the boho style of the print.

I am working on the window treatments now which is one of the most exciting elements of a room for me!  I then have a few other little odds and ends to touch up but we are getting close to a brighter, new feeling in our bedroom. 

Speaking of bright and new, I've got some fun new necklaces in the shop now!  Here's a little taste of them...

More coming soon!  See the whole collection here!

Before and After

I have been holding on to a pair of prints I ordered from Etsy for over a year now just waiting to find the right frames at the right price for them.  I have kept my eyes peeled for fun pair of vintage frames, but that's hard to come by sometimes.  Well, I finally came across a sale at Michael's that was too good to be true!
I got two of these fairly ornate frames for $13 each, and a pair of new, plain white mats for a couple dollars each.  The gold is not really my style, but I knew they would have the right look when painted white.

Much different, right?  I love the way they turned out!  I like to use a little trick to make small prints appear more substantial.  These prints measured 8x10, I then added an 11x14 mat and frame to give a larger appearance.  The prints are on the contemporary side, and the frames have a nice traditional feel.  I like playing around with mixing the two styles together.

A master bedroom update coming soon!!
