For the love of Frames

I love frames. I cannot resist a pretty frame and I love to transform them. All the frames in my house get the same transformation and even though I claim to not like things too matchy matchy, I do love that they all coordinate so well.

I love this look of hanging several different sizes of frames together. The outside frame with the roses is my favorite of all time.

I decided to hang my favorite Halloween picture for awhile. This was 2000, and Janae was Cruella Deville...she didn't want to be Cruella because Cruella is mean. :) All the puppies are her siblings--both her Snyder and Brown siblings. I think it is the cutest halloween ever!

This is my little sitting area where these frames hang..and yes, I have big plans for that lampshade... I have been procrastinating about that one for about a year now!

You may recognise my favorite frame from my Niece's wedding...

Another friend of mine asked to borrow it to take photos of her daughter and her horse. I hope she does..that would make awesome pictures!

I like frames just sitting on the mantle and looking pretty!

One of my favorite walls in the house is above the livingroom couch.

If you want to see how I transform them you can find that post here.

Well, I have been thinking about decorating for Fall--ugh, not my favorite season. I am loving seeing all the beautiful white fabric pumpkins I am seeing in blogland though!

Thanks for visiting!

Hi! Visiting from What's It Wednesday! I love your frames. I am a frame collector too...I have them all over the house and walls. I just bought 3 similar vintage frames and thought to put them inside each other. It is gorgeous....thanks for the great decorating idea! Following!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Love the way you layered the frames.
Gives such importance to the picture and creates an instant focal point.

Fran said...

I am definitely addicted to frames :) Since my Mum and I discovered chalk paint we have had so much fun transforming beautiful vintage finds. Thankyou for sharing your beautiful collection!

Hi Sandy,
I showed your Halloween picture to my daughter, and she thought it was so cute.
Your framing idea is so creative and like you I have a big thing for frames, layering, stacking and hanging :)

Love all you have inspired over here, your whites mixed with the rich tone of darker pieces gives your room interest, I too mix the darker tones with as much pale as I can create :)

Have a beautiful fall, looking forward to all the holiday decor you will be posting.

I love your frames and how you've displayed the Halloween picture. And may I say that is the cutest picture ever!!

Cindy said...

Well, let me just say, you do a frame justice, that's for sure! I love the 3 frames inside each other. I've never seen that done, and what a great idea!
