Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Painted White Frames and Christmas Procrastinating



This is the extent of my Christmas decorating so far this year.
 
A few garlands tossed on the floor.




And a few other treasures sitting around on tables waiting to find their perfect place.
 


 
So instead of Christmas decorating I thought I'd show you my
white empty frame wall that I put together a couple of weeks ago.
 
 
I can't stand seeing an empty wall and this seemed like the perfect solution.
 
Please note the empty shelf that will get filled up with Christmas
very soon now.  I hope.



I've been gathering frames for a while, painted up a few, and
 
hung them on the wall with a plate and an ampersand.
 


 
 
Love the carved frames.  I think you can really see their details
when you give them a coat of paint.
 


Paperwhite update:
 
They're blooming!
 
A little early.



They turned out to be Thanksgiving Paperwhites!

Your painted frames look great on that wall! I think I will be finished with my decorating by the end of the day today, I hope.

You've found some frames with great details! All from the thrift store I assume?

I'll be right over! I want to visit your charming home, and enjoy your paper-whites, and that wall....darling!

I get itching to paint a room, or re-decorate something, but we have our house on the market, so it's a no-go.

Thanks for sharing your cute stuff!
