Photo frame redo

I'm proud of my undergraduate degree. Really, I am. It was an expensive little sucker that will probably take until I am 71 years old to pay off. Once it's paid off I'm buying a convertible and a pug that I WILL dress up in bowties and peacoats. And we will drive around town with the wind tousling his fur and my wig. And we'll be really happy.

Oops, off topic. Anyway, I had my diploma on display for awhile, but, hello, much more decadent eye candy has arrived since college! Look at those cute little baby thighs. That's not the picture I ended up choosing but I'll be doing something with that amazing StoryGirl picture in the future. The Spencer's Hospital book is vintage Harlequin Romance.
The frame was so boring which doesn't match Story's personality at all. So I jazzed it up by mod-podging pages from the book onto the matboard:
Next I primed the frame then painted it--you guessed it--orange. All of Shawn's paints/supplies from school are still good--so this project cost me nothing.
Awwww....
Pillow: Urban Outfitters, no longer produced
Chair: Vintage, $5, Chanute, KS
Boston Terrier signed prints by Brian Rubenacker (on Etsy)
Vases: tall one is Viking glass, the rest are from floral arrangements
And because I'm boy crazy, here's a picture of two hotties!
Tami, are you going nutso yet? (Tami is Wilder's friend, Ryan's, mommie). These kids actually roughhoused. Wilder needs it. The kid can't handle messes, fingerpaint, boogers, tripping...Ryan was good for him. :-)

Very cute, I love it! At least your diploma was in a frame that fit, mine is in a cheapo one with a mat that covers up some of the wordage. I figure it'll get put away in a box at some point. Maybe when I have a cute baby picture to replace it :)
