Painty cheeriness

There was once an ugly canvas painting that I cut out with an exacto knife, then kept the remaining frame that the canvas had been stretched over.  Since then, I've had plans for that frame, and today I finally put those plans into action.  It went something like this:

Hey there, wooden frame.  How about you get hung right there (in the upper right corner of the photo... it's a strange photo).

While Alice finished up her nap, I took my paints out to the porch and started dollin' it up. I didn't have an exact plan, but that's how all crafty things start, I think.

Then Alice woke up!  She apologizes for still being in her pajamas.

(She loooved being on the porch with me, but as soon as we got inside, she was ready for another nap!  It plum wore her out.)

Aaaand done.  "R" for Roberts and "2828" because that, my friends, is our address.

Ta-da!  I like it.  Very inexpensive and totally easy -- you should give it a try.

And now I'm going to take a nap because I'm allergic to spring.


  1. i didn't know you were allergic to spring! (or maybe i did and just forgot...) i am, too! in fact, i spoke with your mother about it the other day....
