14 cent project

Today I took a trip to Hobby Lobby, aka Crafters Heaven, and looked around a bit. I was not expecting to find this super cute paper (above) for half off. Regular price was $.29 so that means I got it for $.14! Silly to get excited about paper? Maybe. But I got excited anyway. I have had this old frame (also above) for a couple years, a Goodwill purchase that I spent a buck or two on and I usually drag it out around the holidays and pile it with candles and Christmas bulbs to disguise the ugly background, the cardboard that comes as a backing for a picture frame. So I thought the paper I found would look quite splendid in the frame. Oh and the pinecones I found in my in-laws backyard and the glass vase thingy we got as a wedding gift.

Here's a closeup of the paper

Not too shabby, right? Well maybe a tad bit, Shabby chic! Hee hee :)

It's the little things in life, right?
