hello hello :)
You don't know how happy I was reading your comments about our new frame wall. :)
I think it made me even happier knowing it inspired some new frame project in your home too. Thank you kindly xoxo

I'd like to just say that even if you don't find "exact" frames now in stores, just wait a bit. Shop thrift stores for inexpensive frames. Back in the day I hadn't yet started shopping at thrift stores. I know very well now, I should've. I would've saved money and I love saving money :)
Just a little close up at a shadow box frame I put together in less than 5 minutes. Don't think too hard about what to fill your frames with. You know what you like. Chances are you have "stuff" you love laying around your home already. Give them a new fancy place to shine in a frame :) I love doilies, vintage paper & buttons and a roll of vintage measuring tape. I simply put all the papers, picture and even the doily together with simply scotch tape. Then dropped in the buttons and measuring tape for fun.
And just for fun, a little book & origami love. I thought my little seagull would look nice sitting amongst pictures.
I also had some questions regarding my little corner love in my studio. I have most of the item information in this post here
Now get your cute little hammer out and nail your heart out!
I wish you the best and most happiest framed wall ever
