If The Frame Fits

Hello Everyone!
Do you display decorative frames in vignettes?
I could put them around every inch of our home.
I just love em' and many different styles too.
Join me for a tour. All photos enlarge when clicked.
We have a lighted niche in the hallway and it was
just calling out to me to display more frames.
Look at the tiny ones I found at Marshalls.
At $3 a piece I had to have the little guys.
They matched the other one I had displayed here.
Aren't they mini and precious?
For now I added each past years Christmas photos of us.
Is it bad I'm thinking of getting a few more?
Where in the world will I put them?
We need a bigger house just so I can decorate more...:)
I created a gallery wall of wedding photos in the hall.
Why not use a place you would not expect to be a focal point?
Every spot in your home should be something you enjoy seeing.
Another view of the entire hallway.
A ribbon *M* frame custom made by Kristen.
Kristen is talented at making the prettiest frames.
Check out her etsy shop on her blog.
I like to find frames with unique shapes.
A gold rooster frame fits in well with my kitchen decor'.
A few gold scroll frames in the living room.
Here is my latest purchase from Kristen's shop.
Look at the lovely jewel flower and ribbon details.
I added a frame gallery to the guest room.
How do you decorate with frames?
Let me know some of your ideas.
Thank you for visiting.
Have a wonderful week!

Gina at Gigi's Creative Designs said...

Your photos are fantastic and I love all your frames. I need some help, I have many framed pics I want to hang up in my stairwell and cant figure out a layout, but also they have those saw hooks on each corner so when I go to hang them they are always crooked, any suggestions?
Have a wonderful evening.

Your frames are all so beautiful. I'm going to have to check out my Marshall's for those little ones. I have the same larger frame. Of course, my favs are the ones Kristen makes. Let's many of hers do I have now? Not enough! Heehee! All of your displays look great! I think this is the first time I've seen the one in your hall. It's very pretty. Have a great week. I'm off to see the post before this one. =)

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Melissa, I just looked at your frame post and was on my way back over to are all so pretty!

I have only put one of the tassel frames in my Etsy store and it sold pretty fast. They were the first to go at my show. I should have had at least 50 more! I sold alot of the Christmas frames was a great show. Yes, the hutch was a great display cabinet. I wish I had taken better pics of the booth. It looks so cluttered...although it was.hehe...I think the pics make it look worse. Anyway, I was very pleased with the show, it was alot of fun. Kristen

Kristens Creations said...

I have a beautiful frame with a deep red sequence bow and cross that you might like. I also have one with a snowflake. They are very fancy! I will be making several more frames with the tassels too. If you decide you want one just let me know...

Your frames are beautiful and compliment your gorgeous decor perfectly! I need to get more framed pictures in my home. It my other houses I had a lot out, but for some reason I haven't put a lot out in our current home. I love the personal touch that photos bring to decor and if they frames are beautiful like yours...even better! Thanks for the inspirations:)

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Hi Melissa..
I love frames. Always have and find myself buying them with no photo in mind to put in it.
I am not on a quest for a very large frame for a photo of my daughter when she was small. So far no luck. Even looking is fun.

Unfortunately I come to you for idea's and have nothing to offer you. :( I'm sorry!
