  2. Absolutely beautiful!!! Definitely make more...I love them!!!


  3. Love them all! I can use them all over my house :)

  4. They are very beautiful! You should definitely make more! Just found your blog & it appears we love the same stuff!! Getting ready to browse around!

  5. I LOVE them...I could definitely use those around my home:)

  6. Love your 'mood' boards w/ vintage frames! All one of a kind and beautiful. I made one without the ribbons and pinned my cool stuff on with pretty rhinestone pins! xo

  7. SO inspiring !!! Make more more and more, makes me want to learn making one.

  8. Wow, I love them all! I need one for my new studio space, gotta get on that. Thanks for visiting my blog. I love yours, so much inspiration. I have 3 kids & a mess of a master bedroom so I'm searching for online help. I'll be back soon. Lisa

  9. Love those! I was debating on making one for my girls room. Yours are much prettier than what I was planning on though.

  10. My thoughts - I think they're beautiful and I think you're very clever! Thank you for visiting and for leaving such a lovely comment. Leigh

  11. Oh, I keep saying I'm going to do this. They're so pretty!

  12. I think you should just custom make them for us not so crafty ladies. And whats wrong with blue my friend? I don't have much of it in my home but one of my favorte colors. Your so talented, post some that aren't already sold, and when you run out of frames you know where to find more....haha, Cheryl

  13. thank you so much for sharing these gorgeous pieces! I inherited some antique frames that belonged to my great-grandparents (Mom wanted to pitch them) and this project would be perfect for them! :)

  14. These dog print is so fabulous, I like to appreciate for sharing these gorgeous stuffs with us. I was debating on making one for my own room with my parents.
