One thing I was working on today

Well not a lot of playing in the scraproom today.  I had to clean my house and got most done but have also been busy fixing up some of my thrift finds.  About 12 years ago I got a bunch of old window frames at a garage sale for nothing and have used some of them.  Today I painted and distressed another one to use above our bed.  The best part is that I got the frame for nothing, and just used some leftover household paint so this didn't cost me a thing.  I may fill in the panes one day with some sort of 'french flair' but for now I like it just the way it is.


I'm kind of getting hooked on flea market fix up and decorating again, it used to be my passion before I really got into cards and scrapping.
