My moments of inspiration are few and far between, but when they come, I usually love and keep what I have put together.
A couple of years ago, I was reading a magazine and came across a beautiful photo on the last page. It spoke to me (does that ever happen to you??) I think it was because the simplicistic beauty of the objects in the picture stood out in the neutral setting. There is also a quote on the page which says, “Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day – like writing a poem or saying a prayer.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh
I carefully tore out the page and decided I would try to frame it. On my next visit to Walmart, I bought a basic wooden frame for $3. I painted it with some leftover white paint we had in the garage, then used some sandpaper to give it more of a distressed look.
I hung it in my kitchen in the house we were living in then and it now hangs in the kitchen of our current house. It has to be one of my favorite (yet probably least expensive) pieces of “art” in our home.

That looks great! It is a beautiful picture, and I love the frame!

You did a beautiful job framing…and a perfect choice for the artwork too, I might add.

pretty picture! you are so creative!
thanks for sharing
I get the urge, but usually don't follow through. The photo is beautiful, but the way that you framed it makes it perfect.

That is such a great idea. I have a page from an old book that shows and old Russian farm house that I put in an old frame and swore that when I grew up and got my own home I would hang it on the wall. It sat on a side table in the formal sitting area for some time. When we moved I lost it. It's here somewhere.. I just don't know where! But I love yours! Thanks for sharing! -April
