An Ugly Duckling



When I am out thrifting I am always on the look out for something that just needs a little loving.  Something that needs to be turned from an ugly duckling into a beautiful swan.



As soon as I saw this frame I knew what I wanted to do with it.  2 years ago I saw a similar collage in a beautiful scrapbooking shop in Queensland called Bella Paperie.  Ever since then I have been looking for the perfect frame to create my own.



I lovingly painted it, sanded it and waxed it


It really was a labour of love.



 Then I collected a lot of my vintage laces and trims



Along with some beaded and sequined pieces


And some vintage brooches.  I collaged them on top of some gorgeous Stamperia paper



And then it became this.  It is now hanging on the wall in my little studio.  I am totally in love with it.

I made a process video if you want to see the different stages.  You can watch it HERE.

So Busy ....


I seem to have been so busy the past few weeks.  I have slowly been ticking things off my To Do List.  I have been treasure hunting a few times and found some amazing goodies




Like this gorgeous framed print from Gail McCormack



I've also been upcycling some cat food tins
And this old Pudding Tin

I've also been budgeting, baking and menu planning


You can watch all of my antics over on YOU TUBE.
