Remember a little frame I redid and gave away? Well, I miss that little frame and its cheery colors. So what's a junker to do? Get herself another one, of course!
Found this in a garage at an estate sale and love the shape of it, but not the color and certainly not the padded fabric picture! Yes, It's a piece of fabric and has foam underneath to make it puffy. Um, no thanks.
I loved the orange and aqua combo of my inspiration piece:

Just a tiny bit of glaze brings out details in a painted piece. Now I'm on the hunt for more of these ornate frames - what's on your 'must buy' list these days?
