If I didn’t have an exploring 9 month old crawling around every inch of my house, I would so be buying one of these:
This is a piece made by a local artisan that crafts pieces of metal into cute funky things with a blow torch. I stumbled across this company, Simply Ornamental at a local craft fair I attended, where I bought this from them:
I also bought a cute fish stringer for the lake cabin, but I don’t have any pics of it yet. One day, I promise.
I love going to these craft expos because you just never know what you are going to find.
I love these photo frames by Elite BG Photo. And these are a steal of a deal compared to similar ones I’ve seen in stores. Actual size on these frames is about 36″x36″ square. They are beautiful in person.
They are reminiscent of this frame I bought at Hallmark a few months back:
Another great little local vendor that makes GORGEOUS distressed photo frames is Connor Claire Frames. I fell in love with this distressed black frame at a craft show and it is now hanging on my wall in my living room.
And while I’m on the subject of frames, let me tell you about one more little knockoff that I’ve found here locally. The Art of Letters creates photography artwork like this:
It is a knockoff of this site where I bought my BFF a frame that spelled out her name. Again, the local place is so much cheaper than the others.
J and I have discussed opening a side business where we sell the wooden windows that he makes into photo frames like my wedding window:
If we ever get that business venture off the ground, I’ll let yall know. In the mean time, I am going to be sitting at a vendor booth at a winter festival tonight trying to promote my Watkins business. Wish me luck!
