Hello Crafty Friends! Happy Wednesday!
Recently I had the great pleasure of creating some projects for Photo Play Paper using their new summer lines. And today I have a bright and happy home decor frame to share, featuring their adorable pool-side collection, Summer Daydreams.
This long skinny desk frame is a favorite of mine, and was an absolute steal at about a dollar at my local junk shop. The dark wood didn’t quite fit my shabby junk style, so I painted and sanded the frame, and now it suits me well. I like it so much, in fact, that I keep swapping out the insides to fit with the holiday or season. And since we are in full-on summer mode these days, I changed out my frame to this happy summer scene.
Summer Daydreams has the perfect patterned papers for an outdoors garden scene. I placed the sunburst print for sky, and added a fringed border of green grass below. Then a bit of die cuts for the clouds.
I made some teeny tiny poles to hold the clothesline, and snipped apart the flip flop sticker to fit. Some bitty twine bows and sentiment sticker finish my scene.
I have had the absolute joy of having my parents here visiting for the entire month of June. It’s been so wonderful having a full house, but as all things inevitably do end, today they are heading home. I took a little bloggy break on Monday so that I could spend every last moment we had together. And we have had some wonderful moments. By my count, we have managed to
Bake three pies
Build 7 puzzles
Plant 17 new flowers
Play countless games of Dominoes and Yahtzee
and decorate my house for summer
Here’s a peek at my mantel, done up this year in rustic, woodsy style with my stick stars and flag, and lots of earthy browns.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I owe you all some bloggy visits. I’ll be around soon!
