From the stash

I keep things for who knows what reasons and this just happens to be one of the little outdated crafty things I found during a recent rooting session up in my attic. Maybe I thought country blue and stained wood would make a decorating come back some day or maybe I had a twisted idea of selling it in a yardsale where all the rednecks would come out and ooo and aaahhh over it, LOL who knows why I kept it all these years as I'm pretty certain I purchased it around 1992 but hey, it's time for a make over! The stained frame has to go!






Amazing what a bit of black paint can do huh? And don't you just love rub on's? For the outdated country blue mat I used a bit of craft paint on a sponge brush, I don't think you're supposed to paint mats...so don't tell on me! Hmmm, this is definitely an improvement but still needs a little more though, what would The Nester do? She'd add some ribbon and a bird of course! So a bit more digging thru the stash...


And here she is all finished and beribboned!

Loving the little bird...

Had to make a mad dash thru the house after

hot gluing it to the frame, I pulled it right back

off and went in seach of a bit of spanish moss...

no harm done, the glue was still warm..

LOL

I'm really digging how this looks hanging in my craft space!

That looks very nice! What are rubs ons? Are that the letters? Are they some kind of stickers? Because I love the fonts you used and I was wondering how you did that.
Greetings, M
