First, let me say that sister #4 is recovering from her arm surgery (she shattered the radial head and dislocated the ulna in her left arm – the end of the radial bone was cut off and a stainless steel prosthesis was attached).
She was in extreme pain for the first 36 hours following the surgery, but thankfully the pain meds are controlling it pretty well now. She is hilarious when she is taking Morphine. She becomes Chatty Cathy! ( I totally just dated myself, didn’t I?) Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
Now that I am back home, I am busy adding a new line of frameless art prints to “The Shop @ Blue Creek Home”. I have found a source who sells gorgeous art. I have spent hours in the two rooms that are full of loose art prints, mounted prints, mattes, and great frames. These are overstocks, images that were cut unevenly, maybe a bent corner, some with surface damage, etc. If you have the time to dig through the piles of prints, rows and rows of frames, and other supplies, you can easily unearth wonderful things. And, I love doing just that! They also have the most gorgeous mirrors and framed art ever!
I recently purchased prints - some of them already mounted on foam board. If there is an uneven side, these are easily re-cut with an exacto knife. It’s also easy to cut them down to fit a smaller frame or add a matte so a larger frame can be used. The unmounted prints are perfect for framing and other art projects.
I usually frame my own prints. Picture frames are always on my list when I am shopping at flea markets, antique malls, and thrift stores. They can be found at really good prices and easily transformed with a good cleaning and a little paint.
I have been busy photographing and measuring the prints. Hopefully, I will have them added to my Etsy shop by midweek.
For now though, I will share a few of them here.
Love these bird prints
The tattered edges won’t show once these butterflies are framed
I think these butterfly prints would look good in shabby turquoise frames
White sea coral on a black background.
Pop them in shabby white frames and you will have instant art.
These are some of my favorites - aren’t they wonderful???
Simple black frames are all these need.
Here are some of my personal art purchases from this source:
This is a frame and print that we put together for Caroline’s apartment.
I have two of these yummy frames waiting for art or mirrors
I stretched this canvas bird print on a wooden frame that I built
I love assembling my own art…it is always less expensive.
