While putting away Christmas decor and rearranging my poorly stacked junk in the basement, I ran across this random snapshot of my niece (who was maybe 9 years old in the photo, but is maybe twenty-something now). It fell out of or off of something and looked very sad lying in the basement dirt and dust bunnies. I brushed it off and decided my niece needed to be displayed properly and gifted to her grandmother (my MiL). Never mind that I was abandoning my reorganization project-- like the clutter was going anywhere!
So I cut my niece out, stuck her down on a festive bit of Christmas stationary and sandwiched her into a garage sale frame with a bit of faux mica flakes.
Much better than the over priced, "giftable", shadow frame, whatnot I started with (below).
Back to cleaning and gleaning more junk, er, valuable stuff for repurposing and upcycling.
I have bags and boxes of thrift store and yard sale purchases that are waiting to be rediscovered!
Do you ever buy stuff, bring it home, tuck it into your closet and forget about it?
Please tell me that I am not alone in that habit!
