I don’t cook alot…and given the picture that might be a good thing!! Because here I’m fixin’ up a good pot of clothespin soup….actually..they’re soaking in tea…. Any one wanna come over for dinner???
This weekend my Son, Alex gets married. I’m not sure how I feel about that…I mean I am HAPPY and all…just a little disillusioned at the fact that MY SON is getting MARRIED…because yesterday he was a baby…..Am I really that OLD? (Dana would say YES!) okay..I’ve digressed….
I wanted to make a gift, but wasn’t quite sure exactly what to make them…then I remembered Beth has a pinterest board so I went on the hunt. I found a picture of an old frame turned into a picture board…
A couple of weeks ago we salvaged several barn panels, old windows and 3 window frames from an old barn a couple of counties away. Hidden in a mound of dirt were three of these….
Caked in mud…actually embedded into the dirt, full of spiderwebs…but when my eyes saw them I fell in love…Dana? …um not so much…but he was a good sport. He only rolled his eyes in the back of his head briefly. Reluctantly he put them into Red Sexy and I brought them home…
So when I saw the pinterest board, I rushed into the back of the studio and dug out the frame….
I scrubbed it, washed it, sanded it, paste waxed it and tea stained the clothespins above to give them a vintage look…added some quilt squares and embellished them with some bits and pieces of my mom’s broken jewelry….
and here it is! I LOVE IT!!! SHE LOVED IT!! ALEX LOVED IT!
and I made one for me too!!
