A few weeks ago I went thrift store shopping with Xazmin, and her Mom. We found some great stuff! Xazmin has gone and done some really great things with her finds, check them out here. I on the other hand have let them sit...BUT...I finally got my act together, and did a simple arrangement for my wall going up stairs. I started with these...
I bought the frames at the thrift store for seventy-five cents each. The ribbon was 40% off so I got it for just a couple of dollars, and have some left over. The bamboo sticks were on clearance for 1.29, and the vinyl letters I got at a craft mall for seven dollars.
I wanted something simple but a place where I could put up random, and "story-telling" pics of the kids, hubby, or family, that would remind us of an interesting or special time. These will be easy to change often, and a fun way for my kids to remember certain times.
For instance, the pic on the left is of my three little girlies hands right after Ashie was born. They marveled everyday at how much smaller her hand was than theirs. The pic in the middle was two days after Ashie got out of the hospital from being so sick, and it was St.Patricks Day, we were all so excited that she got to wear her new shirt(like the kids did) instead of being in the hospital. Also, Bug and Lexlee didn't have their braces on yet, and they REALLY like remembering that! The pic on the right is of Ashie's freshly painted toe-nails on her 2 month birthday, it's something silly I've done with all my girls.
I really like how this turned out, and the prices were great!! I got a couple of other things that day, and will post them when I finish those projects!
Hope your Friday is FaBuLoUs!!!
