I picked up this picture at a yard sale last summer. 

Isn't it lovely? 
You don't think so either?

Well maybe about 1985 it was lovely but not in 2011.
I actually bought it because I really liked the metal thingies on the corners.

After removing the picture and painting the frame I felt like it improved it by about 75%.
The next step was to find something unique to put in it.
I saw this saying recently and loved it.
I inserted scrapbook paper in the frame and put the vinyl right on the paper.
Now I am 100% satisfied.
I have been home bound this week because of snow.   Tomorrow I MUST GET OUT AND GO SOMEWHERE, CABIN FEVER HAS SET IN!

Have a great weekend.

I love what you did with the frame. I'm beginning to think that that those vinyl cutters are worth their weight in gold!

That is so CUTE!!!!!!

Wow the decorations of the 80's are sure dated aren't they. I didn't even recognize that things had changed.

Perfect makeover!
