Before & afters

Found an old framed print at the thrift store, wanted to make it “new” and cheerful and hang it on the wall here.

I like to change things up sometimes and since I’m running out of furniture rearranging options, the walls it is.

Before. For me there is nowhere to go but up

My goal: A bright, cheerful, kitschy wall hanging.

Using the original as a basic outline and lots of bright colored paints…here’s what I got.

After unframed - you can see the colors better here.

In its purple frame up on the wall.

I realize that it’s probably a very obnoxious piece of decor for most, but I like it. And its me that is going to look at it so….there.
And Caroline says she thinks it’s beautiful. (Doesn’t matter if she’s only 4, and has never seen good art..right?)

The girls are going to make me some to hang in small rectangular frames I painted in the same purple I painted this frame. Because purple is my favorite.

Claire is quite the grocery carrier these days. Hurray for help!

She might still like a paci, but she's a grocery carrying brute.

Four years ago today was the day sweet Caroline met my Mema. It was instant love for both, and Caroline still remembers her daily. I sure miss Mema’s kindred spirit, and all the laughter we shared!

Love

Have a great week friends!
