My Framed "B" with Handmade Decorative Trim

As you might know if you have followed my blog,  I have been working on turning my red barn into my workshop. You can read more about the red barn project here. The problem is that there is way too much stuff in the barn that needs to be fixed, painted, distressed, re-purposed or something else. So as I plug away at the items, I recently found a vintage frame that I purchased when my sister and I went on the Longest Yard Sale a few years ago. It was awesome!

Here is my finished "B" frame,  but it did not look like this when I purchased it.

Upcycle Projects

As I look around blogland(is that a word?) I see so many wonderful and crafty projects that convert old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful. I recently ran across some projects that fall into this category and I would like to share them with you. Some of them you may have upcycled yourself and others might provide new ideas. Enjoy!

This first set is for the birds. Won't they like this for a house?

Lovely Magnolias

Spring rain not only brings beautiful flowers, but livens up the trees here in southern Florida. The fruit trees have blooms and baby fruits while the flowering trees are budding profusely. One of my favorite trees right now is the magnolias. The white blooms against the dark waxy green leaves is so beautiful.  I was sitting out on the deck and could smell the flowers.  I had to pick some.

Vintage Picture Framed

I love all types of picture frames. There are so many things you can do with them, including using them to frame a picture. I purchased 5 of these vintage prints. I love their subject matter and the vintage characters. Her dress is fabulous and the hair. Oh!

I had this frame but it was not large enough to fit any of these pictures. So I decided to make a copy of one of them and reduce it to fit. (Actually I had my husband do it at work, great color copier)
