the magic of framing

Yesterday morning, my husband and I took a walk in a local nature preserve.
(You can see some photos here...)
While transferring the photos to my computer, I noticed
how much THIS one reminded me of an amateur painting I'd bought a long time ago
(probably at a thrift store).
I took it out of the small, nondescript brown frame it was in
and painted the frame black.
It fit beautifully into another frame I had on hand - again purchased
either at a thrift store or garage sale.
By the time I returned home this afternoon from a pleasant lunch and visit with a friend,
the inner frame was dry and the whole deal ready to be assembled.
Ta Dah!
What a difference framing makes..


  1. Yes, framing can make a world of difference and you did great with what you had. That painting makes me want to take a walk down the woodsy path.

    Have a nice Sunday and a great week ~ FlowerLady

  2. Oh my goodness, what a great idea, Rebecca. Good for you! Susan

  3. Frames are important, yours turned out beautifully. The nature scene from your walk does indeed look like the painting.

  4. I like the painting ad the framing really sets it off nicely.


Hope to return your visit soon! Thanks for leaving a message...
